Anybody have a recommendation for a holster, less than $100, for a S&W 686with a 2.5 inch barrel?

I like Fobus holsters but they only show a holster for a 4" 686. I wonder if the bottom can be cut to length?

I know that some were made by Lew Horton that would fit just right for the 2 1/2" . You might try search for one .They are not easy to find though.I could use one also.Good Luck.

Carry my S&W 686+ "snubby" http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v736/dairycreek/686Bcompresed-1.jpg
in a #1 clip holster by FISThttp://www.fist-inc.com/holsters/holster/1.jpg
although the pic of the FIST shows a Glock 26 mine was made for my 686 and works quite well. The clip allows for ease in taking off and putting on the gun. Also, requires a very good gun belt.

The Tucker Texas Heritage IWB is the most comfortable I've found for a snub L frame. I've got two, so I'd sell one for $40. It's been worn a bunch, but it still functions perfectly.
