There have been some interest in carry large revolvers lately and I thought I'd share my experiences (and see if I can assist some of you large carry virgins in the process) and you yours. I count large revolvers as anything L frame size comparable on up. First off is a good holster and a solidly constructed belt, this is what will make or break your experience and comfort carrying a behemoth. Dept. store belts and MOST off the shelf leather holsters suck and are INFERIOR to semi and fully custom work. I currently use Mernickle products for my holster and KORE Essentials for the belt. The combination is extremely comfortable even on 8 mile hikes in the Texas Hill Country. KORE Essentials uses a ratcheting system instead of traditional holes and works extremely well and allows you more customization on tightness rather than only one hole on a typical belt. The holster needs to be able to support a full size revolver, shite and skinny leather is a no go here, we want support and thickness, There are several good makers but the ones I have personal experience with that I KNOW will work are as follows: Mernickle Simply Rugged Lobo Gun Leather (Pre and Post Ray) CME Holsters Galco Bianchi Again this list is not all-inclusive as there are others that will work, These are just the ones that I have personal experience with. A heavy clunk of steel next to you in my experience will never be a "youll never know its there feeling" you will know its there even with the best holster/belt selection but it will be very comfortable and easy to carry the weight may actually be "comforting" should the need ever arise to use it. Someone asked about IWB with large revolvers on some prior thread, I really think these guns shine in OWB carry but I have done IWB carry as well, the holster selection on IWB is now twice as critical. I highly recommend wearing at least one size (two is preferable) bigger than your normal waist line size. I have never carried a gun longer that 4 inches IWB, I have carried the 3 inch 629 Trail Boss and the Ruger Bisley .44 mag in 3.75 inch barrel IWB, I am not the biggest proponent of this but it can be done, sitting is a bit more awkward at least it was for me. I hope this clears up anything and helps yall that want to get into carrying like a "Man" get to it. I dont carry this everyday, I don't know anyone who truly does carry this way everyday that is not an officer, trainer, gunshop employee, or self employed. Most of what the u tube warriors show is to me just not realistic, who is carrying a Glock 19 day in and day out to the office? I'm sure they're out there but I havent met them, I carry a J frame for work situations and Carry a large frame revolver during the weekend and when I have time off so while I dont "EDC" this I do carry this way semi regularly. What about our other revolver gurus out there?
