These guys make a unique holster for large frame revos.

The Hoffners got a very good write-up in gun tests for use with a 4" 610. I have one of their hybrid IWB for a 1911 and it is indeed a very versatile and functional holster.

I'm a firm believer in classic leather for classic big bore handguns. My preference,for general carry and woods use, is the El Paso Saddlery "Threepersons" design coupled with their 2+2+2 Mag pouch and a couple of HKS speedloaders. This set is for my no-dash M-29 4" that was worked over by Jim Clark, Sr. when he was still with us.

For big bore handguns it doesn't get much better.

By the way, devildog66, that's one nice set up you have there!

I use these holsters for carrying my S&W Lew Horton 24-3 revolver and my 1026 and 1076 pistols. All are big and heavy and all are comfortable to carry when worn in their Simply Rugged pancake holsters.

I like vertical shoulder holsters for larger guns. Always nice to have a friend under your left armpit.
