You cant go wrong with a Fobus Paddle Holster. This is a outside the belt holster and the problem with the 5" is the barrel tell.



Here are the extremes, a ultra mouse 45 and my Fenrir w/6.5" barrel.

One of my favorites is the Galco Royal Guard. An extremely comfortable holster for the 5" Government (but not so much for Fenrir as you can see) which can be worn all day. Because it's a IWB it has max concealment.



I have both and like and use them. Well worth the money!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
