I picked up a stainless factory DAO 3" GP-100 about a year ago and have been looking for a good IWB holster for it since. I prefer holsters with the attachments fore & aft the actual area holding the gun. It wraps around my body much better and conceals much better. I have talked to several of the custom holster manufacturers I have done business with in years past but none had a 3" gun form. Revolver barrel lengths are usually even numbered and I did not want the barrel to stick out the bottom, or have an extra inch of unused leather either.....yeah I am kinda picky that way. I came across a fellow in one of the forums selling a Tucker Gunleather Texas Heritage IWB holster. It was like new and for a 3" L-Frame Smith & Wesson. It came in today and my Ruger slid right into the holster like it was made specifically for my gun. I am one happy camper as I am very familiar with Mr Tucker's fine holsters...and this one makes #7 for me. Here are a few pictures.
