Just took a quick pic of my 1968 Single Six, 4 5/8" in a Lawrence holster I just bought off GB.

Belt doesn't match yet, but I'm looking to add a matching, vintage Lawrence belt.

A 1967 SS in 4 5/8" in a Lawrence rig was my first handgun when I was 17 way back when.

Sure feels familiar.

This Ruger thing sure is fun, ain't it? ;)

I can remember seeing ads for Lawrence holsters many years ago in the back of Guns and Ammo and Guns magazines. Quality belts and holsters using simple proven designs. Thanks for sharing your vintage Ruger and holster.

That's a handsome outfit. Would look just right on Cheyenne, Maverick and the rest of them. What's your fast draw look like in the mirror? Looking right down the bore axis?

haha....Martin, it's pretty pathetic.

When i was 17 I could do that fast draw trick from the Magnificent Seven where you drew before someone could clap their hands in front of you.

As soon as I opened the FedEx box, I strapped that rig on and tried to draw.

Struggled to even find the hammer.:o

The older I get the faster I was.:D
