Cannot find a suitable holster


May 3, 2013, 09:28 AM
Yesterday, in an attempt to buy a leather holster that actually fits my 3" SP101 Ruger I went to:

Dixie's Gun Shop in Hughesville, PA
Gander Mountain in Muncy, PA
Sauer's Trading Post in South Williamsport, PA
Troxell's in Williamsport, PA
Curt's in Mifflinville, PA
Jim's in Bloomsburg, PA
Wal Mart in Bloomsburg, PA

There is a lovely Hunter leather holster at my nearest LGS, L&R in Laddsburg, PA but it is left handed. Being somewhat ambidextrous I am thinking of giving it a try.

It was a GREAT day and I saw many cool guns but no holsters like I was looking for. If you want milsurp go to Sauer's or Curt's. If you want real bargains go to L&R. Best handgun prices on new stuff were at Troxell's. Best prices on used handguns with a huge selection were at Curt's. Best ammo supplies were at Kurt's, L&R, and Sauer's. Curt's has a one box limit on pistol ammo. The other two do not.

While I am on the subject, is anyone aware of the different wearing effect that leather might have on stainless steel vs. nylon? So many of the new holsters are in nylon.

Midway has a lot of Hunter holsters, didn't see any for your gun, but they did have some Bianchi.

take a look at Ray will make you a superb holster for your 101. I got one for my 3" S&W 60 and am really pleased.

I don't know what your budget is, but if you are considering a Hunter brand.....then take a look at Don Hume. I bought one for my 2.25" SP101 and really like it. I got the IWB model 715TB. It is my ccw rig. Modest price tag too.

Here is another one that does excellent work, and he is in Cleveland.

Google "Simply Rugged". Company is in Prescott Az. Call and ask what he can do for SP101. I have their crossdraw and chest harness, liked them so much I ordered a Flapjack for heavy brush.

I've always liked for leather holsters.

Have an IWB for my M&P, a very comfortable shoulder rig for the Blackhawk, and the missus has one on order, and should be getting her shoulder rig for the 1911 in a week or two.

Other than belts, and a few odds and ends, they don't keep stock on hand though, there is a 2-8-ish week wait as they make the holsters as they're ordered. Nice, clean little shop, only about 15 minutes from me.
