I love the Desantis Nemesis. It's nice and sticky and pretty tough. It also has a little edge that catches on your pocket to keep the holster doesn't come out with the draw.
so it works well with your j-frame?
i'm going to be getting a 642 soon (hopefully) and am looking for a pocket holster as well as an OWB holster
I have a Nemesis for my 642 and its pretty good, gets a little hot against my leg after a while cause it doesn't breathe, but its not a big deal.
yeah. I only use it with the jframe. I tried the uncle mike's pocket holster as well, but the nemesis was nicer (a lot sturdier).
thanks for the info.
any recommendations on an OWB holster? i was considering a galco concealable (i have one for my p226 and like it) or maybe a blackhawk serpa
seems like it would offer good security:
although, i thought i read something about people having ND's because of the way they used their finger to disengage the gun, and it slipped into the trigger guard. something like that
I don't carry the J-frame OWB, so I have no idea.
I have a serpa for my G19 (and used to have one for my sigpro) and I really like it. The only thing I ever heard was about large debris (like rocks/sand) getting lodged in the mechanism and keeping the gun from being drawn. I've never had this happen to me, but my holster doesn't get very dirty.
I've been using a Mika's holster for my Keltec....works pretty well and cheap, just ugly as sin.
Desantis Nemesis > *.pocketholsters
I'm going to take this opportunity to pimp my own handmade leather holster again. Its a pocket holster for use in jeans with hammerless j-frames like the 642. The leg side is boned for retention, the out side is not detailed to keep a generic print $30 + $5 shipping
Now that aside when you're talking OWB j-frame I think I'd stay away from holsters like the serpa. It just seems like its too big and bulky and defeats the point of carrying a j-frame. Its now owb but check out the barami hip-grips. They really concealed a jframe amazingly well and stick with the minimalist convenience approach that I think suits the j-frame well.
any other OWB suggestions?
