I have a S&W 642 and I need an IWB holster for it. Currently I have a set of DeSantis Clip Grips (http://www.desantisholster.com/store/SEARCH-BY-GUN-MANUFACTURER/SW/J-60-3/inside-the-waistband-holsters/clip-grip) which are great for carry but the clip is throwing my point of aim left. Here is what I am looking for:



Comfort (I am thinking I want leather)
Not bulky
Secure to belt (worry about the Clip Grip slipping)

Something that is easy of and off and adjustable depth/angle of carry would be icing on the cake.


I have a Galco King Tuck (Cross Breed copy) for my Glock 19, it is ok. I don't think that style is good for a gun as thick as a J-Frame, am I wrong?

I waiting on a couple from Lobo. One for my 2.5" 686 and another for my J-frame.

Enhanced Avenger and Enhanced Pancake, both have excellent reviews.

Why not go with a DeSantis Sof-Tuk?

1. Thin leather
2. Not bulky
3. J-hook on belt
4. And here's the icing for your cake: Easy on, easy off, plus adjustable cant.

Not sure why you think you need an IWB with a 642.

Try a belt slide or a Don Hume JIT Slide (my favorite).

Go with a simple IWB from Don Hume.

I have a S/W 642 and I carry it in a MS VM-II (IWB holster).

Like any other gun and an IWB holster, it must be covered with either a shirt, sweater or pull-over banded polo style shirt, or a jacket.

Perhaps it's may body shape, but I can't get a shirt to look right using the "tuckable" style holsters.

My advice (as I'm going to try myself) for concealing the S/W 642 is either an ankle style holster or going back to the t-shirt holster. Both of these work well in dress shirts (not the tailored styles) and dress slacks.

Since I ride a bike quite a lot, my Coronado Leather biker's vest has two pockets that work very well as long as both pockets are equally loaded so it looks like I may need either another S/W 642 or another G-27:shocked:.
