Hey all. Can someone please help me out in locating a leather vertical shoulder holster for a Smiff 686 6"? I have done a few google searches and turned up some nylon ones and others that were priced at like 50 bucks or under... Im lookin for a quality leather dirty harry type of deal (under 200$ preferably) thanks for any replies!

I really hate to tell you this.

But you ain't Dirty Harry, and probably are not tall enough to comfortably carry a 6" revolver in a shoulder holster.

It just won't work for most of us under 6' 4" like Clint Eastwood.

I was 5' 7", before shrinking to 5' 6" in old age.
I tried it long ago with a 6" Model 19.

And it didn't work then.
And it works worse now.

Well im 6'2" and have a decent frame with no intentions of being clint eastwood. This would be for the woods not concealed carry. I own a belt holster and feel it gets in the way at times. Just thought id try the shoulder holster route.

I went with the Bianchi X15 Shoulder Holster because it was something like 35% off plus free shipping at OpticsPlanet. Hope it works out. Thanks for the replies.

With my Bianchi shoulder holster, the muzzle of my Auto Mag winds up in my pants pocket...

^ I just got my Bianchi x15 and the muzzle end sits about a half inch below my belt. It is comfortable and, to my suprise, easily conceals under a flannel button up shirt and disappears under a light coat.

I've never used them but I've been hearing a lot of good things from people I trust.
