    Hi all,

    In addition to a Ruger SP101, I'm considering a S&W 6946 for a CCW piece. Looking at all of the choices in holsters, I'm just not sure what to try first. (I realize I'll probably end up trying multiple holsters before I find the best one for me.)

    I *think* I'd like a holster that carries the gun rather low, IWB, and possibly tuckable (but not required). For anyone who carries a 6946 or similar gun, what are you suggestions? Pics of the carry setup would be great! Thanks!

    I carried a 6906 for awhile in the early/mid 90s. It's one of the only weapons I regret selling. The third generation Smiths are excellent pistols.

    I can suggest two ways to go.

    1. Milt Sparks and Lou Alessi.

    Pick one of thier holsters and live happily ever after. They're not inexpensive, but they will last you YEARS worth of use. From Milt, the Summer Special, or SSII, is a particular favorite; as is the 55BN. From Lou, I LOVE the Ankle Rig ( I carry a Glock 19 in one.)

    2. Fobus.

    Inexpensive. But reliable and while not prone to failure, replaceable without making the wife unhappy.:D They do everything a holster is supposed to do.

    Fobus is making holsters in different configurations now; I saw an ankle holster the other day. I'm not sure they do an IWB as yet, but as long as you dress properly, a paddle should do you fine.

    My primary carry gun is a 6946. Great gun by the way.

    I have a couple of different solutions I use.

    Smartcarry works great
