Practical leather holster style for revolver

Rate this topic

20 posts in this topic

Most belt type styles I see look like they ride way too high on the body. That makes them look super top heavy to me as well. 
 

would like to find one that rides lower on the belt. 
 

any ideas where to search?

Depends on what you want it for.   If protection you would want it higher for concealment.   
If lower on hip it will stick out further from your body and be noticeable.

Is this for OWB or IWB?

For OWB i like the Galco or Desantis holsters.

 

If you want kydex I am happy with Outlaw Holsters.

 

I don't carry my revolvers IWB.

 

Don't forget pouches for speedloaders.

OWB. This is strictly for ease of storage/transportation at the range and in the wild. There is no CC or OC here. I don't find it to be practical to use the S+W box for transport.

 

And yes, I need a double speedloader pouch. 

 

I'm thinking a western style looks much more practical for me. Or, an older Patrolman style that hangs on the belt closer to the grip.

+2 On both Galco and DeSantis.  Use them both for the heavier CCW options (Smith L-Frame).

 

As others have mentioned...a lot of the wear and comfort is dependent on your Belt.  Plenty of reasonably priced options for those out there...

Same here.  For a western holster there are some great deals just south of the border in Mexico.  Nogales or TJ.

For my GP100 3" i use a galco high ride that is canted. 4 oclock position.

 

The problem with thumbreak holsters is re-holster after draw.

 

Bianchi used to make excellent leather holsters.

Both Galco and Triple K make a similar sportsman's belt holster that ride low, but aren't cowboy style holsters. Each has a strap to secure the gun, and can be worn strong-side or as cross-drawn.  I ordered a Triple K to carry a Ruger Blackhawk in the woods -- that's not a gun your gonna even want to try to conceal.

Hunter makes several lines of leather, no frills,, holsters like the one above.
