    I just got married a couple weeks ago, and my beautiful wife bought me a Taurus 608 .357 with a 6" barrel.

    My wife's great taste in firearms aside, I am having a terrible time trying to find a holster. I am looking for something I can carry the gun in while hunting. This is a big heavy gun, but I don't want anything that will put the gun on my chest- I don't want it in the way for bowhunting. Uncle Mike doesn't make a sidekick that fits just right, I have test fitted most of them. The ideal rig for me would be a 'tactical' style on my thigh, with two straps to the belt and two around the leg to distribute the weight nicely. I have a rig similar to that for my Ruger P95 DC and absolutely love it there.

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you for the quick reply- I checked out the sites, but didn't find one for my gun. I did find a nice sling I will probably buy for my rifle though! Thanks again

    If you have the meanings, and is hard to find one already made, you can try for a custom made one. Well you should know that a custom one can be more expensive but I'll say that 95% of the time they are worth the money. It will last you for a long long time. Just my .02 happy hunting

    I found one web site, but I'm a little hesitant. Has anyone heard of
    or used these West Woods Landing holsters?

    Rusty,
    Simply Rugged has exactly what you are looking for. Their Sourdough Pancake holster is very comfortable for all day use and won't break the bank.

    This is from their WEB site:

    Lots of good recommendations here, but stay far, far away from anything made by Crossbreed. Trust me.

    Thank you all for your help. I picked up a cheaper nylon hip holster at a gun show this afternoon for now, but I think I am going to check out some of the 'custom rigs' you suggested when I run into some more money.

    Thank you

    I have one similar to this I found on ebay for 17 bucks. Good utility holster if that is what you are looking for.

    Get one for a .44 magnum. Your gun is built on a .44 magnum frame.
