How Could I CCW a Smith and Wesson 39-2? I am not sure if anyone even makes a holster for the 39-2. Any Suggestions would be appreciated.

Practically any holster that handles the S&W double action 9mm or .40 pistols will take the Model 39 series. The size differences are in the grip area, and in some cases, the slide length. I really like the Bianchi "Minimalist" belt slide design.

If you want a full coverage holster made especially for your 39-2, here are some leads:

Go to the Bianchi Company's "Search" page and enter S&W Model 39 in the "All material" block, you'll find at least a dozen various models suitable for concealed carry. Click here (http://www.bianchi-intl.com/product/SearchModel.php).

Also check out the Galco online catalog (http://www.usgalco.com/HolsterG2.asp) area for the M39.

El Paso Saddlery (http://www.epsaddlery.com/) has several models that look like they'd serve well. I suggest you look over their web site, get the models which interest you, and phone them to ask if they make that model for the M39. Last time I was at their factory, they had a truly amazing collection of aluminum dummy guns with which to fit holsters.

Safariland (http://www.safariland.com/concealment/) might be a good bet, but I'd suggest phoning them, as well.

Call Bachman Pawn & Gun at 214-351-3628. They have a decent selection of holsters, and can order anything you want. Gun Leather Co. (www.gunleather.net) in Fort Worth has a good selection of holsters, though their website is none too detailed. Phone: 817-334-0225.

These should get you started.

Best,
Johnny

I'm sure there are better, much nicer choices out there, but I used a Uncle Mikes #16 super belt slide for mine. It worked well, even surviving a motorcycle crash with damage only to the restraining strap, which Uncle Mikes replaced for free.

I like my 39-2.

Any 59xx or 4006 sized holster will fit the 39-2. I know because I had one and it is a great shooter. I switched to DAO and sold her and that was a mistake. :mad:
