I'm looking for a good IWB holster for a Taurus 817 (7-shot 2" .38 sp). None of the big manufacturers (Galco, Bianchi, etc) have that model in their holster compatibility lists. I bought a custom kydex holster from FIST but I'm not really happy with it (retention is awful).

Any recommendations?

I'm guessing, in generic, if it fits an L frame snub, it'll fit the 817. Perhaps K frame would be tighter?

I don't carry in off the shelf leather and even have built my own for my snubs. I have a Sparks Summer Special and a Rosen Workman built for specific models. They're expensive (not really the Sparks) and the wait is longish, but it's worth it for the quality you get IMHO. That Sparks lets me carry a BIG Ruger auto in comfort. I don't know of anything off the shelf that would work quite so well with a P90. I have given though to ordering one for my Taurus 3" 66 it works so well.
