    I'm considering an OWB leather but have the option of going with either snaps or the standard vertical slots as found on many pancake holsters.

    Do the holsters with snaps support the gun as well as the holsters with slots? Do they hold the gun in as close to the body?

    Nothing beats a pancake style belt holster with slots for molding tight to the body and supporting the gun.

    The snap-off loop holsters I have tried do stick out away from the body further, and are much more bulky.

    Thier only advantage is you may not have to unfasten your belt to put it on.
    But I still find it much easier if I do.

    I went back and forth on this as well. The only reason to go with an OWB with snaps is if you plan on taking the holster off frequently and don't want to deal with taking your belt part way off. If you had to remove the holster in a car for example the snaps would be easier to remove.
