Finding that "perfect" concealed carry holster is almost a never ending quest for individuals who carry concealed. Most people go through a series of holsters in a trial and error process trying to find the perfect combination of comfort and concealment.

In most cases, handgun owners end up with the proverbial "box of holsters" that end up sitting around without being used.

Holsters for the S&W J Frame

The S&W J frame revolver is probably the most popular back-up and self defense pistol still in production today. While a number of other S&W frame revolvers are popular, none even come close to the success of the J frame.

My own experince with the J frame started during my law enforcement days as it was one of the few handguns my department allowed for back-up carry. My J frame spent countless hours on my ankle. While I never had to employ it's talents, it gave me a great deal of comfort during those times. I still find myself grabbing my 642 airweight and slip it into my coat pocket as I'm leaving the house.

As popular as the J frame has become, finding a good holster of one should not be a problem. Nearly every holster maker I know makes at least one holster for that revolver.

The J frame is at home on the belt, inside the waistband, in the pocket, or on the ankle. From a CCW perspective, it's one of the most versatile handguns on the market.

My personal favorite for the J frame is a pocket holster that slips into my jacket pocket. I do occasionally use an IWB holster, but I have single stack semi pistols that I prefer for that method of carry.
