I'm looking for a good quality holster for my 3" sp101. By good quality I'm thinking around the $50-$80 mark, rather than the $9 uncle mikes I bought to try positions out with.
I've had a look around (here and across the internet!) and the concealco ones seem to be pretty good - almost perfect except I'd like to have more "sweat protection" at the top of the holster (I dont know what the technical term would be) between me and the gun.
My cheap uncle mikes wasnt bad except its really designed for a 2", and I like the FBI cant, and I could use something with pulls the grip in close.
Thanks for any advice :)

I've been pretty happy with a Bianchi 3S (http://www.bianchi-intl.com/product/Prod.php?TxtModelID=3S).

If you want an adjustable cant take a look at the LFI Rig from Ted Blocker. You can also look at Milt Sparks and Matt Del Fatti. They cost a little more, but are much better holsters for the money than any "store bought".
BTW: IWB is where it's at and is my preferred method of carry. :)

I have a Tucker gunleather coverup for my pt140pro. I am very fond of it. It does have adjustable cant. It is also made for the Ruger sp101. Last time I looked he had about a 6 week wait. I think mine was about $70

AJK Concealco makes a very nice, custom made to your specs, adjustable can't Revolver IWB holster. It's also in your price range.

I'm another proponent of the Bianchi 3S. Very comfortable.

Thanks for the ideas so far. I think its between the bianchi and the concealco at the moment :)

Concealco is a great holster. I used one for quite a long time for a Ruger Speed Six.

Go witht he concealco...it is thinner than the bianchi...and the offset loops stabilize it nicely...

Its a done deal - I'll try concealco - thanks as always for your opinions.

Check out the McDaniel II from Andrews Custom Leather:
I just received one for my S&W #19 2-1/2 barrel. Lots of cant adjustment to work with. The only drawback is a long lead time, but it is well worth it. Sam has a neat speedloader holder too.

I'll be watching your response. I have the same gun (3")and need a decent IWB.
