    Well that choice is so broad. Fobus makes one for the 85, but so does our sponsor Tucker Leather.

    There is Don Hume, JIT which I use for my 905 (same frame as the 85), Galco, "well about any maker does them for the J frame or 85.

    I'll check those places you mentioned and thanks for some help

    Re: kydex holster

    Well, for me the deciding factor was cost. I was buying for 3 hand guns, and could not afford $100 each for holsters. I bought Fobus for $25, and Don Hume for about the same. I did have to wait for a bit on each of the leather Don Hume's, about 5 weeks for one of them. But they fit my PT, 905, and my Rossi.

    Re: kydex holster

    just an update:

    I received my paddle holster a couple of days ago and have been wearing it since. This holster is awesome! I've been wearing it for two days now and don't even notice it's there-so lightweight and forms to my hip really well...

    I would honestly recommend this holster to anybody looking for a casual OWB carry option

    Re: kydex holster

    I use a Blackhawk CQC Speed Classic for my Taurus 2" model 85UL. It's for the S&W J-frame snubbie, but fits the Taurus perfectly. I love it. It's a beltslide, OWB that's barely larger than the gun itself. It holds the gun tight against my body on the beltline. It has a piece of elastic on the front that holds the two sides tight against the gun very effectively, yet allows a quick draw. The pictures you will see online are misleading. The gun is held at almost no cant at all.

    Can't beat it at $29.95 from Optics Planet.
