    I am looking for an IWB holster for my Hi Power.

    This seems like an easy enough thing to find, but I have a couple of requirements: the belt loops for it must be spread out enough to keep the gun's grip tight against my back and it must have a retention strap. The retention strap is proving to be the feature I can't seem to find. In my search of the forum, I found lots of threads and posts where the need for a strap in properly molded IWB holsters was dismissed for retention of the gun; the arguments were good ones, except for the fact that I want the strap not for retaining the gun, but to help keep the hammer down: my Hi Power has the SFS system and this will help keep the safety engaged.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks.

    EDIT: My bad. You wrote IWB, but I read OWB and answered as such below. I know there are IWB makers that will give you a thumb snap, but the only one I can think of is the Andrews Leather "MacDaniel" and that is a single loop holster. For what it's worth, they are supposed to be very secure and stable, even with the single loop. The single loop design is supposed to keep the pistol grip very close to the body.

    Thanks. The McDaniel is the sort of thing I'm wanting; given the design, it looks like I could do without the second loop.
