3" SP in a Simply Rugged pancake holster on a Bullhide Belt. Works with a loose polo shirt or T. Had to switch my wallet to the opposite hip so I wouldn't flash during store checkouts.

Don't have one for the SP, but have had good luck with hybrids and Remoras.

FYI Blackhawk and Uncle Mike's nylon IWB holsters are the exact same holsters, they must contract someone to make them.

I have both for my 2 Beretta Bobcats and they work great, but are identical.

The nylon IWB holsters are good, basic holsters that unlike some, don't cost half what the gun did.

For my 2.25" SP101 I have a Blackhawk #4 pocket holster, a Bianchi 6D-1 leather IWB, and a Ruger (Galco 129HO) leather OWB. At various times I use all of them. The two leather holsters are worn at about 4:00 or 4:30. I feel like the SP prints no more than my Springfield Armory XDs .45, and it just disappears with an IWB Talon at 4:00 o'clock.

My friends get on me a lot for saying I'm not a "big guy" in conversations like, so I have to use the caveat that "I don't consider myself to be a big guy"... I'm 5'10", 195lbs, lean/muscular. I wear 32"x36" jeans.

Whatever, I don't think I'm a big guy, but I'm fairly muscular.

I carry an SP-101 small of back IWB or appendix carry. I rarely wear anything but jeans or cargo shorts, and always have a belt. I have an easy cheat though, I always wear a belt buckle, which usually hides my revolver pretty well, and I "stack" my untucked T-shirts behind my buckle. It's not tucked in, but not draped freely, the front "tail" of my shirt tucked behind my buckle. It's a style... But it does help access my revolver, and help hide it.

When a coat is an option, I usually switch to an OWB belt holster, or a velcro pocket holster in the inside coat pocket. A carhartt coat usually has enough stiffness to not print or sag much to be noticeable. I wear a lot of vests in the winter, which let me stay cool when wearing my "firearm concealer" inside. Looks awkward wearing a coat during dinner, not so awkward wearing a North Face vest - and it has to be pretty dang cold for me to need more than a Hanes thermal and a North Face vest if I'm just jumping in and out of the car in town.

SP 101 3" AIWB pocket carry has gone to an S&W 638. I never could get a SP 101 not even my 2" hammerless conceal properly in pocket unless I had an untucked shirt over the pocket.

I just got this today. I went for a long walk with it. It's very comfortable walking. Sitting isn't great, but I sat for about an hour with it at about 8:00, and it was tolerable. It is a 4.2", so it's not ideal for conceal, but it seems to work. I still need to play with angles to see what works best. It's from RB Holsters on ebay.

Mitch Rosen OWB for my 2.25" SP101. Not cheap, but worth it for this gun IMHO.

I used to shoot IDPA with Rosen and Ayoob. Ayoob used to introduce Rosen as, "Here he is everyone, the guy whose holster costs more than his gun!" Little did I know that a year later I'd break down and get one too! lol...

I had a hard time finding a holster when I first got my SP101 3'' so I made my own, not purdy but it does the job.

+1 on the Simply Rugged Pancake. I have carried my 3 " SP 101 in one for several years and am very satisfied.

Right now while the weather allows me to wear a sweatshirt I have a pancake holster I got years ago from Dillion with a Bullhide belt you can not tell I have it on. When it becomes tshirt weather I use a Desantis sof tuck IWB and a slightly baggy shirt
Hmebuildr is online now
