I DONT WAIST CARRY, BUT IN POCKET, IVE TRIED ,UNCLE MIKES WAS O/K, TRIES TO COME BACK OUT WITH GUN, AND THEN I GOT THE DESANTIS NEMESIS, THE NEMESES ROCKS..STAYS IN POCKET VERY WELL WHERE IT NEEDS TO ...WHILE DRAWING 85UL ,VERY NICE....FOR C/C CARRY...MY 2..
I have a home made IWB, but mostly carry the 85UL on an ankle or in a pocket. If I ankle carry it, it's back up on trips and such. It's easy and fast to reach while driving or seated in a restaurant when getting to a pocket gun would be a little slow. I sometimes use the same home made IWB for my 3" M66 .357, rides well if heavy.
Soon as I get my daughter and all her crap out of my house, I'm going to do some more leather work, fun and handy when you need a holster. I just haven't had room for several years to mess with it.
If I were to BUY a holster for the gun, I'd get a Rosen Workman tuckable. I have one for my Kel Tec P11 and it's awesome, comfy, and beautifully made. It was pricey, but first class leather. I don't use it a lot anymore cause I pocket the Kel Tec, too, now days.
Oh, the ultra light 85 is an awesome carry IMHO. Trigger is superb, quite accurate.
Just go to the tandy leather site and get a starter kit. It's actually pretty fun and not that tough to make the stuff. The art is in the artwork and I haven't really gotten into that. I did it in 7th grade shop class, made a wallet and something else I can't remember, but I'm going to get deeper into it when I get room to mess with it.
This holster turned out great, though, functionally. It's very comfy. I added the rise at the back to protect my love handles from the gun and it also serves, along with the stiff leather, to help me reholster one handed. The high dollar stuff has a spring metal to hold it open and is normally form fitted to the gun. The fitting is easy to do, did it with a wallet holster I made for a little 380. All ya do is put the gun in a plastic baggy to protect it, then stuff it in the holster and wet the leather to form it. Then, let it dry with the gun/baggy in it. I didn't want that with this one because I have a 3" M66, the 85, and a Rossi 3" M68 all of which I carry from time to time in it.
I don't like those spring steel things, usually have a chunk of leather covering them that has a sharp edge that cuts into the love handles. I have a Sparks Summer Special I glued a piece of light leather over to cover that edge and protect from the decocker of my Ruger autos. That thing was torture until I did that. An advantage of making your own is that YOU know what you want and like in the rig.
Most folks have a large box full of holsters they've tossed for one reason or another. I kinda think making your own reduces some of that inventory. LOL!
I have an older all steel 85, and my favorite way to belt carry is the Triple K Skeleton Holster. I have to imagine it would be even more comfy if it were an Ultra Lite. Here it is alongside my Uncle Mike's pocket holster:
