I had a S&W 442 about a year ago, and am purchasing a 642 in mid March. My questions are do wood grips help keep shirts from creeping up? I used to have a kydex holster for 4:00 carry IWB (not so good comfort wise), is it better to use leather for a J-frame? I'm interested in appendix 2:00 to 4:00, would it be better for canted or straight? IWB or OWB? Pictures would be a great addition if you have any.

Wood grips would not grab the shirt like rubber ones do.

If you bought a good kydex rig, then comfort wouldn't be a problem.

Angle of carry usually increases the further back you carry it. The J-frame does lend itself well to appendix carry, if your style of dress allows it.

Smooth wood. No checkering.
IWB in leather.

Can't go wrong
