    Howdy,

    I need suggestions for a leather holster for a SW 629. I need something to carry in the woods (for protection not hunting). I'm also kicking around concealed carry owb.

    Any cool ideas ?

    I need the barrel length and wether or not it has a full length shroud.

    My first and last choice would be the Threepersons from El Paso Saddlery.

    Gordon,
    It's a 4". I'm not familiar with the term shroud used in the context of a revolver. Could you mean the underlug? It's not full, about half.

    CraigC,
    Does the Three Person work well with a regular 1.5" gunbelt or is it best with a separate belt?
    Thanks!

    :cool:

    The sourdough pancake holster is the best darn holster for any Smith revolver by far. I have three of these fine holsters. At around 60 USD, they are rugged, elegant and quite a value. I highly recommend Simply Rugged leather.

    El Paso Saddelry makes some nice stuff. I have a Classic Old West Styles (c.o.w.s.) holster that I bought from Sportsmans Guide that ended up being an incredible piece for the investment. Its my 'social' holster from my 6" GP100.

    Most fo the larger online outlets have holster guides that will help you select the right model for your gun. (like midway and brownells)

    I think the Threepersons would work fine on a heavy, conventional belt. Lots of folks prefer going that route with a cartridge slide, as opposed to a two and a half to three inch cartridge belt.

    I use a "Sable 111" tunnel style leather OWB from Rays for competition/field carry (http://www.shado.com/Leather-Holsters/Sable-Leather-Belt-Holster.html) for my 4" 629.

    I use a Hoffners "Miurage" kydex holster for IWB carry when I want to be more discreet.

    Though, I did drill a new hole and move the rear belt loop back to the rear of the holster for more stability and less bulk.

    Not for concealed carry without a jacket, but for woods bumming. mountain biking, hunting, hiking with a pack or driving this chest holster works well and comes with a double strip of extra shell holders. I have the upright model in OD. for my mountain gun

    I use a Sparks #200 AW "Hank Sloan" on the belt for an old 29-2 , but have a Predator Kydex holster that works well on an 1.5" belt,

    I bought this chest holsters for mine.

    Price was a bump in the road, but after receiving the holster, the workmanship was worth every dollar.

    This type of holster helps me to keep from committing the 11th Commandment.....Thou shalt not bang two guns together.(one on your hip and one slung over your shoulder) :D

    I use a X-15 now and used a old Safariland shoulder job I picked up used in like 1972 before that. The Mtn gun version I use a Bianchi 5BHL thumb break. The one down with the X-15 though is it beats the snot out of the ribs on a horse when creek jumping.

    I run Milt Sparks rigs for my N frame .44s. They are well worth the wait and the money.

    That Dave's holster looks very nice also, maybe better than my Survival sheath one. At any rate real guides and backwoodsmen seem to go for a chest rig of sorts these days.;) CCW is a different animal and the IWB rig shown earlier might be the schizzle some one who could wear it (read not real plump).

    I figured I would update with a few pics. I carry 4 and 5" .44s a bunch. I live in Idaho and spend a considerable amount of time in the mountains and high desert. Long story short, a good holster makes such a substantial difference when carrying a heavy belt gun, that it cannot be emphasized enough. The belt rigs I use are by Milt Sparks and represent a serious investment in cash, but also work for a lifetime. Elmer Keith contributed to the design, in that he suggested adding a hammer shield to prevent the hammer from shedding his jacket, when wearing concealed.

    I have run mine both as an outdoorsman's rig and for concealed carry in the winter time.

    Shown in the first pic is a holster for my 5" N frames and one for my 4" Redhawk:

    Shown below is a Sparks rig without a hammer shroud for a 4" N frame:
