what would be a good way to carry a 686 with a 6" barrel here in Illinois
you can only C/C while deer hunting a legal hunting pistol thats a minimum
4" barrel. my EDC is not legal to carry when i deer hunt so i would like to
use my 686 for a carry gun for a few days out of the year so can you suggest
something.
thanks

I use one of these (http://www.triplek.com/Products/id/38/grp/409/prd/344/) for a 6" 686.

There are a few popular brands for a 6" wheel gun.
Id suggest the well engineered HuSH holster R&Ded by outdoor writer & handgun hunter; Dick Metcalf.
www.Bianchi-intl.com
Simply Rugged has some good leather rigs & tanker type chest holsters.
If you want a cool leather belt holster for the 686 6" barrel, you can get the Walking Dead holster used for the main character's Colt Python .357magnum.
That's sold by southern CA area shop; Tex Shoemaker. He's been around for many years selling holsters & gear to a lot of LAPD/LASD cops. :D

Call or email the holster firm first to make sure they can create the holster you want to your specs.

If you're really not going to carry it but a few days a year, you might want something inexpensive.

The best low-cost and very high quality holsters I know of are from Ray's: http://www.raysholsters.com/holsters/leather-holsters

I have on of his "Sable" holsters for my 629 and I've used it for years in IDPA competition without even hardly breaking it in, let alone wearing it out. Which is amazing for $35.

EDIT: WOAH! PRICE BUMP! Now they're $40! :)
