Fellas, help me out please. Just bought a S & W M43C. This is their super lightweight .22 8 round revolver. Wanted this for when the pup and I are out on our hikes/walks.

I've always worn IWB Kydex, but having trouble finding one for this revolver, or maybe my search skills just suck.

Any leads/advice are always appreciated.

I've got an El Paso Saddlery leather belt holster for my 637. It has the dual belt slots on the front side that allows you to change the carry angle from vertical to a forward tilt.

when I carry my j-frame IWB, I use the desantis softuck. I would imagine a kydex IWB holster for a revolver would end up being a bit uncomfortable. Maybe that is why you are having a hard time finding one?

Thank you fellas. unclebubba, with your soft tuck, how is the retention? If you turned the holster upside down and shook it, would the revolver fall free? This is why I love kydex. No retention straps, but it holds tight.

The retention is great! My Love handles hold the gun in place very well, thank you! banana2

janie,

for a kydex holster, some makers can make a holster while you wait.

They use your pistol to make the actual holster perfectly tailored for your pistol.

Ask around for a maker in Dallas. Often times, local LEO's will make holsters as a side job.

If you’d like leather, I can’t say enough good things about Azula Holsters from Africa. Very good thick leather. Bought one for my GP100 and the holster is so much better than my Bianchi.
