Though I usually pocket carry my 340 M&P, sometimes I prefer belt carry to free up a pocket and have better access.

What do you guys recommend for OWB?

Already have a Yaqui slide that doesn't feel secure enough, and a Kramer Belt Scabbard that is too hard to draw from (grips the gun insanely tight).

I'm looking at a couple from High Noon. Any other suggestions?

when i owb carry my j-frame it is in a galco, no thumbstrap/retention/whatever, and not a paddle. couldn't tell you the exact model name, but it rides pretty high, and w/ just a t-shirt on sometimes the very end of the holster will peek out the bottom of the shirt. i have never been made in that holster... i have, however, been made w/ one of my iwb rigs for that j-frame...

The Silver Dollar Pancake by Simply Rugged (http://simplyrugged.com/leather_goods/index.html) is a great holster for J frame revolvers. It's very comfortable and holds the revolver securely high on the belt like you are looking for.

That Galco holster above looks good to and so does the Speed Scabbard (http://www.desantisholster.com/storefrontB2CWEB/browse.do?action=refresh_browse&ctg_id=3316) by DeSantis.
