I just purchased an FN Hi Power and need recommendations for a holster I can pick up quickly while I wait for my VM2 to be made. Can anyone recommend a decent OWB holster (preferably a Paddle due to Ohio's terrible "plain sight in car" laws)? I'm partial to leather but am not that discriminatory. Thanks!

A superior holster to a paddle , but just as easily taken off and WAY more comfortable , is Lou Alessi's CQC-S . Of course it's an OWB , but I prefer it over the VM-II for comfort , and I have both holsters for a BHP . If you were lucky , www.lightningarms.com or www.rfholsters.com might have one in stock. Worth every penny ! Many would say that if you had those two holsters for your Hi Power , that you had the best IWB and the best OWB in existence , and they might be right ...Tom

There are so many out there, safariland makes a nice inexpensive paddle holster, as does don hume. You can sometimes find nice deals on ebay for holster. There is a new Kramer vertical scabbard for a hi power there now for $55 buy it now directly from kramer. Good luck.

It is not a paddle, but Dillon markets a pancake rig that is affordable, comfortable and conceals well. I've had mine for 7 years or so now.

BTW, I'm in OH and find I can slide the holster forward on my belt and tuck my cover garment behind it. It works well enough that I believe I'm in compliance. YMMV.

As much as I hate having to handle the gun when I transfer it to another holster in the car, I'm pretty squeamish as I have a Ford Explorer with a huge console in the center that would block view of the gun from any angle, even when looking through the passenger side window. A lot of people say as long as they're not trying to conceal the weapon (by tucking back the cover garment) they feel they're in compliance, but someone on the Ohio CCW Forum just had an encounter where the LEO specifically walked around to the passenger side of the car to make sure he could see the weapon. I think that would spell trouble for me and my Explorer. Therefore, I choose to throw a paddle holster into the front pocket of whatever pants I'm wearing to make it "in plain sight." May be overly cautious, but it helps me feel better.

A cheap Fobus comes to mind. They are easy on, easy off, and conceal well enough for winter here in OH. I have one for each of my carry guns just to use when I'll be wearing a coat and want to make a quick trip somewhere.
