New Rig

Well after the past several years of carrying my raging bull 454 I became increasingly unhappy with the holster arrangement that I was using.......I was using an Uncle Mikes sidekick vertical shoulder holster........it was a pain to take on and off, and I never could quite get comfortable wearing it, not to mention chasing a rolling revolver down the river hillside.........so, off on the search for a new holster I went, and here is what I ended up with...

Its called the guides choice holster and it is made by David Johnston in Alaska........I am nothing but pleased with the fit, comfort and quality of this holster...I would reccomend one to anyone who is tired of the one size fits all cordura junk..........it did cost a bit of money but IMO money well spent......here it is...

Re: New Rig

Wow nice rig - I checked out the website and really like them, they do not mention price or turn time. Do you care sharing either or both? If not, its cool!

Don't Tread On Me is what it says and I'll take that to my grave.

Re: New Rig

The cost was $155.....I wanted the 5 shot reload also which was an extra $25...................he had a holster for this gun in stock, so there was no turn around time, I ordered it friday and it was in the mailbox today....

Re: New Rig

will the gun stay in without the hammer strap on?

Re: New Rig

yes, it is a snug fit in the holster...........and it doesnt flop around hardly at all so I believe it would be nice and secure either way............but why not use the hammer strap?

Re: New Rig

Looks like a nice rig. I bought a similar rig from pistolpackaging.com called the bandito belt for my scoped contender with 10" barrel. I have never used it, as I went the sling route instead. Am getting ready to put it on ebay.

I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth. <span style="font-style: italic">3 John 1:4</span>

I personally hate any extra retention on a hand gun. If I want it out I want it out fast.
