    Found my western holster. Bianchi #1873. It's an inch or so too long but the revolver fits well. I'll try it and see. (Hip) BTW the belt is way too small, must have shrunk in the last 29 years......

    One man with a gun can control 100 without one.

    I used a chest holster when I use to hunt with a Ruger Super Blackhawk, worked well enough.

    I lke leather but if your exposing the rig to wet environments its bad. Nylon is the way to go: easy cleanup, drying and back in service. People may have backup leather holsters for CC duty but that really dosen't happen with hunting rigs. If leather gets soaked or even deep cleaned and treated you still need drying time. A dry surface does not necessarily mean the leather is dry at depth/sub-layers, I don't want to put a gun in a damp holster day after day while hunting. Formed leather can also lose its shape, I've had to wrap guns in plastic wrap, shove it in a holster wet holster attempting to get it back in "shape". Many leather holsters now have internal metal support/reinforcement: what hppens to wet metal?

    Its been a long time since I shopped "hunting chest rig handgun holsters", put that in google image search: wow!

    Those that give up their guns are on a self destructive fools errand. Tyranny shall never take what it didn't provide: not by paper, not by Court and not by force.

    Yeah, there's a pile of em. Even kydex. Good idea about the plastic wrap. Just did it as I had to treat the leather to get it soft again. I'll run this hip holster and try it. Found a pacmire grip from the .357 and it fits. Much better.

    Check out Silver Horse Holsters and Man Gear Alaska holsters. Both are available on Amazon.
