    For a couple of years my 340PD has been my favorite carry gun. I've been using pocket holsters but would like to get a good IWB. I tried a Galco with reinforce lip and checked out others but everything closes up a little once the gun is drawn so one handed re-holstering is not possible. I would perfer one with a j hook. I don't care for belt loops or metal clip type. Would like a staright drop for appendix position but forward can't at 4 o'clock would work too. Above all it has to stay open to allow one hand re-holstering.
    Any suggestions of one that you actually use (not just know of) that has the above qualities?

    I would check out crossbreed supertuck, i believe they make a holster for j frames.

    Which Galco holster do you have? I use a Galco Stow-and-Go and never have problems with it closing up. I appendix carry it as well and never have an issue with one-handed re-holstering.

    Try a Kytac Braveheart IWB. I had one made for my 640 and I love it. It's light weight, very sturdy and extremely comfortable. I have several Kytac holsters, mainly for my Glock 23/27.

    Kydex or leather holsters with metal-reinforced openings won't close up on you. There's a lot of 'em out there.

    +1 on the 340pd. My favorite carry gun since bringing it home. Pocket carry daily! If you find a good IWB holster let me know, I've been looking too.
