Default Belly Band Holster for 642?

Anyone have any good recommendations for a belly band holster to hold a model 642?

Thanks in advance!

I'm a big fan of these, with the little J-frames. I just replaced my well-used leather one for a new one by Bell Charter Oak. Great holster; simple, good access and very well-made.

I have a belly band holster I bought from bellybandccw.com. Works for me when there is no other way to carry.

Got one of these - cheap and very effective. Whatever size you are, buy the next size up. The size chart runs small, and you would rather have more available velcro than not enough.

I want something like that for the M37 I bought today and my M10 snub. Something I can quickly clip into place. I don't want the hassle of a special belt or a shoulder harness. When I leave the house I want to be able to grab my wallet, keys and gun and go. I like the looks of this hoster.

I have one similar to the one hourglass has, but it's two complete layers (no straps). You can wear it upside-down...or upside-down. You can put more artillery and ammo (magazines) in that thing that you could ever need. Not too good for hot-weather work as it holds the gun close to the body, but for cool-weather wear.....just slap it on (Velcro attached) slip a jacket or shirt over it and stuff-in whatever assortment of weaponry required for the day. Works on large-frames, small-frames and semi-auto's.

I can't figure out how this works. How do you wear it? What hooks up to what?

I think I see. The belt runs through the ends and that perpendicular strip secures the gun in place? That's really a minimalist holster. I like it. IWB, right?
