I have a nice old S&W 15-3 with a 2" barrel. I've been looking for a good leather paddle holster for it, and so far have not found anything I like. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks

There aren't many leather paddle holsters out there.

The only two I can think of, off the top of my head, are the

and High Noon

The technology required for a paddle generally make them quite a bit more expensive than a comparative holster with a standard belt attachment. They also are generally less stable than a non-paddle.

Another option, if you need the easy on/easy off feature is a snap on as represented by the Alessi CQC/S

There are a few companies making this design.
