what pistol etc do you mean? sometimes there may not be a exact fitting holster for a pistol. but many do and will fit, you need to select a holster which is similar to the pistol you have.

if you say it can not be done, then you are right, for you, it can not be done.

If you know a good boot maker or leather worker, you might be able to have one made. A simple pancake type made of leather. It is just two sheets of leather sewed together in such a way as to sandwich the gun in between. If you want boning i.e. outlining the major features, soak the holster in water, put your gun in a plastic bag and let it dry around the gun. As it is drying, you can take a rounded plastic object (bone) and mark out the contours of the gun. Since it is IWB, have them make a sweat shield on the back so no part of the metal of the gun touches our skin. Leather straps with loops can be sewn to the gun as show in photo below. You put the gun inside the waistband and the loops go around your belt. You shirt tucks in between the holster and the leather straps. If you blouse your shirt a little, it will hide the gun. The only thing visible are the loops on your belt.
It is a good idea to have the holster cover the trigger guard so the trigger cant be accidentally engaged.

Ok i hope im not hijacking the thread but what d you guys sat about concealing a revolver like a J frame snubnose... i find it extremely uncomfortable to be tucking it inside the belt... any suggestions...???
The best concealment i get is wearing it outside with a fobus paddle type holster with a coat or loose jacket or the same holster works wonders inside a kurta pyjama also infact i find the kurta pyjama with a paddle holster as the best concealed carry rig..lol
I dont dial 911... I dial .357

Dear Dr. JK,
I know giving life to an old thread, but can you share the pic of your cloth stiched holster and if you later managed to get a leather one stiched, please post the pic of that as well. Will be of great help to me, as i am looking for the similar holster to put my revolver on my waist and tuck the shirt in in ccw.

Cheers...
