    I have a drop swivel holster for my revolvers. One of them does not have a trigger guard (Think main protagonist in 'The Walking Dead' or retro state trooper).

    Similar to picture in first post on page without the ammo loops -

    http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=48702

    The leather thumb-snap retains the hammer so it would take a monumental amount of force to fire the gun from the trigger without breaking the thumb-snap.

    Don't open carry any of my revolvers - but if I ever 'needed' to for whatever reason it would be nice to know the law wasn't against me.

    Thanks

    There are no VA laws on open carry unless you are carrying a rifle.
    Carry how you want if you feel it is safe.

    Like tyeo098 indicated there is no problem in Virginia. I have an old Safariland police swivel holster for a K frame S&W. I also have several Jordan Border Patrol holsters for various handguns. Virginia is an open carry state so as long as you can legally own you can carry.

    Yep, you can carry a .44Magnum in your hammer loop. Not recommended, but legal.
