Hello,

I'm looking for feedback from anyone who has real experience with IWB holsters for the 2" S&W 686+. I was steered to Hoffner's but he apparently isn't making holsters right now. I have a Fist #1 with a belt clip but I think I need something with straps/loops. OWB or a paddle holster is not an option. I know I can Google all sorts of holster manufacturers but I'm looking for recommendations from those who actually carry the 686.

Thanks

I have a VM2 that works well (designed for a 696 but fits well). I would imagine something like the CTAC would work similarly.

I carry my 686+ as does the OP. That is on a FIST#1. I cant find a better IWB holster for this gun. I have tried holsters for IWB made by Simply Rugged and can say that they are excellent but not that they are any better than the FIST.

Here are a few I made.

This one is a crossdraw and can be worn with the shirt tucked in or left out.

This one can be worn IWB or just remove the straps and you can where it IWB as well.
