Recently purchased one but it does not draw grip close to body. Looking for OWB, preferably covering safety/decocker without interfering (carry cocked and locked). Thanks.

You might look at the Tucker Gun Leather.
Mine is the Deep Carry (DC-3).
Fabulous holster.
The wait time can be unbearable but worth the wait.
I now need to get a mag holder on order.


Pics of mine:
(I keep mine> safety off {usually}, on in chamber, hammer down. I have a standard spurred hammer on it so it is easy to cock with one hand)

Looks nice, does it conceal well, loose shirt over with vest or not is how I typically carry.

Not good for back or appendix carry but hugs the hip in a great way and those quick clips are excellent allowing to stay on but you don't have to disrobe to take your holster off.
The handle of the weapon can still out a bit more than IWB depending on where you locate the holster.
Leather lined kydex is a plus as well. Cool

A lot of kydex holster makers can make you one specifically for the safety in the locked position ensuring it doesn't get swept off.

Gunfighters Inc Ronin. I love the things. Use them at work when I’m in street clothes and have one for just about everything I tend to carry off duty. Only exception is when I carry a 1911. 1911s get leather. A man has to have principles…

But seriously. Great rigs. I’ve got one for a USPC 40. I’ll add a pic tomorrow.

Here it is. The early ones reportedly had an issue with the kydex loops cracking, but they made changes several years back. I've got probably 15 of these and wear one on duty 8-10 hours a day 5 days a week and it hasn't been damaged any. My oldest is about 8 years old and still looks new. They hold very close to the body and I'm comfortable carrying anything up to the size of a full size UPS 45 under a loose outer shirt long enough to cover the length.

I couldn't be more satisfied with a product, and I was anti kydex for a long time.

EDIT TO ADD: While I am an enormous fan of their holsters. I'm more mixed on their mag pouches. Especially double pouches. They take up a lot of real estate on the belt. If you have the body shape that works for them, great, but if not they are overlarge.

And yes. That USP is so old it has Patent Pending on the grip panel. KH date code, so 1997.
