Looking for a good holster?

I like leather but cant seem to find a good OWB holster that will conceal easy for my Ruger Sp101. I see the fobus paddle holster and was wondering if anyone has expeience with that one, I had one for my glock a few yrs back and just didnt like it. Any suggestions are appreciated.

I alos should add I do not want to break the bank, I know some leather holsters can get pricey and yes I know you get what you pay for.

Any good leather pancake holster will carry your gun close and concealable. Much more so than a kydex holster.

Here is a good one at a good price.

Probably the best values in affordable, minimal wait time revolver leather pancake holsters are the pancake and silver dollar pancake from SimplyRugged.com

More expensive, longer wait but well worth it are Sam Andrews line at andrewsleather.com

Hard to go wrong with either.

after a lot of searching and review watching I settled on the simply rugged pancake holster in oxblood color. Looking foward to this arriving, looks like it will be one of my favorite holsters.

Thanks

The best one I've ever worn.
Holsters are about $85 and all hand made to your specs.
VERY nice work.

I went with the simply rugged oxblood pancake holster. Mostly because of the price range. I just couldnt swing a holster over $40 right now. Plus they got great reviews everywhere I found

My buddy just picked up one from here--> http://www.hiddenhybridholsters.com/main.sc

They're local to us and I have to say I was pretty impressed for the money. I intend to pick up a couple for myself.

Thousands of holsters on ebay.

Pick a brand and check for it there.

If not now, just check in a week or so as they move quickly.

Yeah I looked on Ebay for holsters and found a few but I wasnt sure about quality. I bought a iwb holster for my glock last year off ebay. It was listed as leather molded holster and what I got was nothing even close. I buy a lot off ebay but holsters is not one anymore
