OWB is challenging but can be done. Good Luck.
It conceals ok with a flannel shirt or jacket over it. If you like the Don Hume line, and I do, try the 721 OT. It will hold your revolver closer and more securely than the JIT, and is priced at less than $50. I've been using both the JIT and 721 for a few years now, they wear well. I carry my SP 101 in the 721 under a suit or sport jacket every Sunday.
The one thing I'm not real thrilled about is I thought it'd ride a little higher. Can't lift my arm over shoulder high without exposing at least the barrel of the gun under a normally long untucked T. I have a collection of vests that work well as over-garments, but in summer, they're too hot. I'll just have to keep from reaching with my right hand in the store for something on the upper shelf.
The plus is it seems to be a lot more comfy than any IWB. I have IWBs from Sparks and Rosen and neither are as comfy for long term wear. And, yeah, I think it'll work well in the car. Once a week, I collect from the machines (part time paper route job twice a week to boost my retirement income). I carry in the pocket, but getting the gun out of a pocket while seated in a car is a bit tricky. IWB is better, but the seats in the car aren't conducive to 4 o'clock carry, wrap around buckets. This thing carries at 3 o'clock without bothering my hip bone.
Anyway, while I don't think I'll wear this thing every day, it will be handy for the .357 and I think it'll be handy when I'm collecting. It will also be nice to carry the 4" gun when I check the hog trap at my place or go down there to work on something. I normally don't bother with a belt gun, but if I can wear it on the belt concealed, hey, why not? I'm pretty happy with it, especially that I don't have a lot of money in it. It contributes to the overall collection of systems for carry and I might actually use it once in a while, LOL.
Lifting your arm up and exposing the barrel can be a problem, you just have to watch that movement I guess. I don't notice it as much since the barrel length I carry is 2" or so, but if it is an OWB holster, that will always be an issue under some conditions.
I'll put up with the little extra it takes in long shirts. I'll still pocket one of my pocket guns if dress requires, but this rig works for every day use.
If I get an OWB for my P90, it'll be the 721OT. I like the extension for protection of the skin from the decocker. But, really, I don't know that the P90 would be the gun to carry OWB. The 3" 66 is a lot more compact, I like the caliber, and I like revolvers.
I've been using the JIT with my snubbie for about two months. I like it very well so far.
