    I'm looking for an IWB holster for a S&W 442. 1.8725" barrel. Leather or kydex doesn't really matter, right handed. I've been able to find plenty of pocket holsters but not really any IWB holsters. Thanks in advance.:wavey:

    Blade-tech should have something, and I've been pretty happy with my holster from them.

    Don't know how much you plan on spending, but I think I'm going to end up with a Texas Heritage IWB from this guy.

    He's just backing the hometown folks, not to mention a damn fine holster. The only answer? No, but a good answer nonetheless.

    I have comptac IWB for glock and a couple leathers for 1911

    The Comptac I had from about 3 years ago fit my 1911 much better than the new one I picked up. Also in the past couple months I have picked one up for a G34 and G19(both belt) and they don't fit the gun as well as they should.

    They are nice because they ship within a week. But they are not the end all holster.

    You're absolutely right. I own holsters from three different makers. I'm reasonably happy with all of them. I've got a Milt Sparks watch 6, and Galco concealable for my 1911, and the Comp-tac C-T.A.C. for my XD. I recommend trying several. :wiggle:

    I like the Galco holsters too. I have tried several different brands and my belt-slide just fits me better. You will probably have to buy more than one before you find one that works for you. Try and buy used to save some money, ebay is a good source and I have purchased two galco holsters for about 50% of retail on ebay.

    Galco Waistband IWB, this one is for the glock 26 but $23.50 is a good price!

    I've never measured myself, but that's what it's listed as.:dunno:

    Thanks for the input guys, I was checking out the galco ones they had at the gun store today. I'll have to look into those other suggestions as well.
