    Before I sold mine I carried it in a Don Hume IWB holster at about 1:00.
    Worked pretty good. Its kind of bulky but the aluminum frame make the weight not to bad. Get a holster for your P89. I had a generic uncle mikes that when I would draw the P89 the mag release would catch on the holster.

    I've been trying different holsters for this bugger myself. I have a bianchi hawk shoulder holster. It works pretty good, but it's a heavy gun for shoulder carry. I use the cheapo uncle mikes right now and carry at about 2oclock, when I carry it. Right now I have a gunbelt on order. I use a bianchi blackwidow for my snub, and others have used it sucessfully with the P89, so I would try some variation of it. If I find the belt will support the weight, I will probably get one of those or a Don Hume agent.

    I have a KD Cochise Defender for mine. I don't carry it often, but when I do this rig conceals it well and comfortably.

    Definitely get a real gunbelt. There are many out there, Kevin at KD has nice belts as well as holsters so you can get a full rig in one shot.

    The Houge wrap-arounds are cheap so you might give them a shot, but I didn't like them. The grip on the P89 is pretty darn big to start with, and the additional bulk made it hard for me to rapidly acquire a good grip. I ended up with some Hogue coco-bolo wood stocks to dress it up a little bit (kinda like putting a prom dress on a pig) and those feel a lot better.
