4" gp100 IWB holster raccomandations

Hi all...
I'm considering to order a decent IWB holster from the USA for my 4" GP100.
I would like the holster riding rather low (the rear sight just above the belt line). I've made some researchs and I think that the Fist model #20 (adjustable IWB) can be a good option, but I've actually never seen one of these ...
I've also read a lot of positive comments about Simply Rugged "Sourdough Pancake" with inside-out straps, but I don't know how this holster rides and how it conceals...Of course I can also consider other brands and models...Every advice is very appreciated

Thank you in advance

Nick

I personally do not like IWB but a friend caries a 6" in the Simply Rugged version you described quite comfortably but he is a big guy! I use the same for my 4" but OWB and love it.

The Simply Rugged Silver Dollar Pancake conceals just fine in it's IWB mode. I wear mine, depending on my attire, IWB about half the time. I think it will also ride low enough for your wishes. Best holster "bang for your buck" I've ever seen. Just love mine.

I just ordered a Silver Dollar Pancake for my SP101. I talk to Rob Leahy at Simply Rugged and he said he knows a guy that carries a 4" S&W 66 (similar in size to the GP100) in his Sourdough Pancake everyday and the guy is around 5'8" 150lbs (not a big guy). So, yes, a Simply Rugged holster can conceal your GP100, and do so comfortable enough to carry everyday.

I'll let you know how it goes when I get mine.

Without a doubt the Galco Summer Concealment holster like I carry. Works great with the 4" GP when carried over your kidney.

I know and like very much Galco products, I had already seen their "Summer comfort", but this holster rides very, very high (all the cylinder of the gun is above the belt line)...I don't like very much this design because you have to reach the revolver stock very high, and, than, to go higher to draw ...I would also like the loops on the sides of the holster, for not adding thickness on the cylinder zone, and to have a better stabilization. In any way, thank you VERY much for your suggestion !!!!

Thank you very much, Techase, you' re too kind !!!
I've looked at all the brands you have posted...There is a lot of very nice leather there !!! I've seen that also "Lobo gun leather" makes IWB holsters with the design I'm looking for ...
Mmmmm...Also on this thread I can read very good opinions about "Simply Rugged" holsters...Is there anyone who knows something about "Fist" IWB holsters and, now, "Lobo" IWB holsters too ?

P.S.

Techase...When the holster I'll choose will arrive, I'll surely start a thread about it !!!

You might consider a Crossbreed Super Tuck. They are adjustable for ride height and you can make then ride very low for deep concealment if you wish. Also, they spread the weight of the gun out on your belt and are comfortable to wear.

Look at this maker ... Side Guard Holsters - Home Page
I've got a "Tuck Snap" model for my SP101. Carry's low - only the grip is above belt level - and is a very comfortable carry. Your choice of cant from 0 to 15 degrees. Quality leather. Well made. Reasonable price. Makes one for the 4" GP. Reasonable delivery time. Take a look.

I have a Wild Bill's Concealment Summer Heat. I is well made and rides low enough. I know that some people have had issues with customer service from Wild Bill's, but the GP100 is a special order and I recieved mine in an acceptable amount of time and even recieved a call to check my billing info. I say at least give it a look.

Nick,

Let me throw another hat into the ring. I have carried several guns very comfortably, in Tucker Gunleather holsters and my newest Texas Heratige for my 3" GP-100 is no different. The first day after I received it, I drove 6 hours, stood/walked for another 3 and drove back home with it on and a fully loaded gun in it. Now one big issue that is overlooked is the belt. A good "gunbelt" is a must for full support and comfort. Here is mine.

It looks very nice and functional, Tex....Thank you for showing it to me !!
I've ordered a couple of holsters from "Lobogunsleather" on 02/24 (an IWB for the GP and a pancake for the SP101), and now I'm waiting for those holsters to be made and shipped...I suppose they'll arrive on the first days of May.
If I'll not be satisfied with those holsters, I'll surely consider a Texas Heritage, together with some other holsters I've seen, thanks to the advices of the other members.
Thank you again

Nick
