Just got my first Ruger revolver. An SP 101 3" in .357. I'm interested in members opinions on an EDC holster. Being that winter's coming, I'm thinking I'd prefer an OWB style. Thanks for your help.

I can only suggest looking at the De Santis line, and only because I like the De Santis OWB for my GP100. I don't like thumb snaps for concealed carry, and the De Santis pressure retention works nicely after the breakin period (which can be done in a couple days).

My SP 101, 4 inch needs a new holster also. Bought a De Santis but not loving it.
Stiff as a board and crummy fit. I've spent over two weeks breaking it in and loosening it up. Still not loving it.
What else should I try in a nice softer leather?

I know its not OWB,
but I like my Remoras , year round.

Scenario, your out and about, with jacket on , OWB,
You go into a restaurant to eat , you want to remove the jacket for eating comfort, hmmmmmmm. problem?

With Remora shirt tail covers weapon nicely, total concealment.

Just my MO..and 2 cents.

HotRod:

I know that you mentioned that you wanted an all leather holster. Just thought I'd say that I decided on a Crossbreed leather and Kydex OWB for mine. The Kydex on this holster is sized for the short barrel and so there may be to much barrel protruding for your liking. My SP is a 3" and I don't have a problem with the 1 1/2 inches that extends out of the Kydex. The retention is great, the draw is easy and the weapon sits tightly against my body. I would have preferred a 10 degree cant instead of the vertical draw. None the less, I'm very happy with it. I used to be a leather guy but in the last few years I've switched to Kydex/leather for my carry guns and now prefer them over anything else. Hope this opinion helps.
