Any suggestions for a reasonably priced OWB concealment holster for a Ruger SP101 2 inch? One that covers the trigger and rides close to the body? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I don't know just what DeSantis has for the SP101, but I really like my DeSantis holsters for my Bersa T380and G22, and they were certainly reasonably priced. You might check out their website.

Galco should make their Speed Master or Speed Paddle for this gun. If you shop around you can probably beat the list price.

Good quality and reasonably priced. I carry my SP 101 in one, and also have them for my XDs. The pic in the link above shows a semi-auto, but they make them for the SP 101 also.

Seconded. I had forgotten about Hume, despite having several myself. :o

I have the IWB Kramer holsters for my 1911/686+/SP 101 and am extremely pleased with them. Thye are sturdy enough to carry the gun well, thin enough so the gun just dissappears under un untucked shirt.

Milt Sparks PMK or a Del Fatti LP, 'nuff said. :)

I think Gemini has the LP in stock and they look good with one of Marc's Custom SP101's.

I strongly second the Silver Dollar by Simply Rugged. Here's a pic of my 3" S&W Model 60 in its Silver Dollar.

+4 or 5 (whatever number I am) for the simply rugged.

I have a Don Hume H721ot that was good too but, simply rugged gets the nod.

Milt Sparks and Del Fatti make some very fine holsters but they are not "reasonably" priced.

The OP wanted reasonable prices.

As far as Matt Del Fatti, I have one for my 2" SP101. I guess it wouldn't be considered reasonable priced. But it is nonetheless a great OWB holster.

I've always preferred IWB--I use a reasonably priced holster from Bell Charter Oak that was originally designed for an S&W model 19 2.5". It fits my Ruger just fine and makes it disappear under just a t-shirt. Amazingly comfortable.

I didn't have to think even for a second to think of one of the best IWB holsters for the Sp101...Check out Alessi Holsters in upstate New York..Great company to deal with, (Lou A is a super guy and his holsters are top notch and he stands behind them 110%)....Doc:D

In my opinion "reasonably priced" means that the holster is worth it's value. "Expensive" means the holster is not worth the asking price.

Alessi, Sparks, and Del Fatti are all "reasonably priced" if you ask me!!

I just wanted to thank everyone for their suggestions. I'm going to be looking into all of these and make a decision.

No guarantees on the price still being the same, but Mr. Nitzel makes a great holster. He'll do open or closed end, roll the edge, basically whatever you want.

Ric, can I drop you a pm? I have some questions about your SP101.

I carry my SP101 in a fist #12. It's a custom made holster, but the waiting period is not long, and the price is reasonable.

Does anyone know what the difference is between the Simply Rugged Sourdough Pancake and Silver Dollar Pancake? From the description it sounds like they should be pretty similar for an SP101.

I bought several through RFHolsters.com over the years, but that site now has multiple typos on the Alessi page, suggests buying through an eBay store, and says there is a 1 1/2 year wait on items not in stock ...

Curious because I love the Talon IWB holster, have several, and would like one for my SP.

For 2-1/4" DAO SP101 my favorite OWB holster is Galco Concealable. But more often I carry it in BlackHawk CQC IWB leather holster made for J-frames. This holster is not marketed for SP but SP fits in beatifully. Holster is very functional and fully adjustable.

Hmmm...if you don't mind me asking, which version of the holster did you get (paddle, 3-slot, etc)?

Thanks.

ZEBCO,

This is my Don Hume 721 OT for my 3" SP-101. It works perfect for my 2" as well.

My silver dollar pancake arrived yesterday - a little over a month from the order to my door. My Sp101 fits snug but not so snug to inhibit a quick draw. Reholstering is a breeze but a little breakin will be necessary to get the Sp101 fully seated. The inside out loops are sturdy and between the loops and a good belt the holster does not move an inch when carried IWB. The loops allow a slight cant allowing me to conceal the Sp101 with Hogue grips with minimal printing. Overall quality is excellent; good leather, good stitchwork. The holster is not as rigid as I anticipated but I think the "suppleness" of the leather and maleability of the holster is a plus.

The holster was well worth the time and $.

Definitely getting a simply rugged holster for my GP100.

bulbboy,

Does K&D offer that holster with full muzzle coverage? I see an uncovered muzzle like that and my night sights cringe!

I may pick one of these up till I can either get the K&D or Simply Rugged.

Replacement lamps are expensive! I have bumped into things for whatever reason and the front sight took the hit.

K&D also make a 3" version that may be able to work with thr 2" gun and cover it past the front site, but not be to long.

Great holster! Fits high and tight, and doesn't break the bank!

It's called "CQC Inside the Pants Holster" for S&W J-frame.

I carry my SP101 (3.06" barrel) in a Don Hume Double Nine holster. Works well, good quality and not too expensive.
Mine has a retention strap...I prefer those over rententsion holsters. The Double Nine is available with or without a strap.

I don't have a pic, but I do have a couple of the JIT slide holsters. I will wear one if I am going to be driving for awhile, they are more comfortable in a seated position. However once I'm out of the car I prefer the 721 OT. The JIT slide is a comfortable holster to wear, but you'll find your revolver will 'flop around' a little bit in it. It doesn't hold the weapon against the body quite as well. I have one for my XD and it does the same thing. Great holster for a Makarov though.

Thanks eagle45, I'll may go the 721OT route then,
