    Looks nice. Does the belt have loops to hold extra rounds.

    Haha! What the hell, I’ll post something.

    I like the holster. It looks like it rides low enough so that it won’t be knocking your elbow on the handle while pushing through brush, and looks like the handle is where your hand would naturally rest while walking. I also like that the trigger/trigger guard are fully exposed JUST IN CASE the gun needs to be drawn quickly. Who makes it? What do you plan on hunting with your Super Blackhawk? Squirrels? Haha!

    I don't think that is a "hunting rig" it is a quick draw rig.

    Depends on your style of hunting, but the low carry will rub your leg if you walk very far, and the low carry will have your gun hitting on everything The tie-down will have to go if you plan to actually sit down. I suppose the gurdle belt does give support, but not for hunting:D It will constantly be slipping down as you walk.

    The open style of the holster does very little to protect your sights and trigger.

    If you plan to carry a rifle then the right side carry will not be your best friend...the pistol will trash your rifle in short order.

    A good X-draw belt holster or a good chest rig is the true "HuntingRig"

    Here is my SBH in a 7XLeather chest holster. I love this rig!

    Simply Rugged is another maker popular with the big revolver guys.

    The "Chesty Puller System" gives you the option of chest carry with one of their belt holsters.

    Nice leather. I'd worry about retention, just b/c for me, hunting generally involves a bit of hiking/ climbing. Also, I'd go for something plainer when gettin dirty, myself... but if this is what you got, and it fits your blackhawk, use it.

    I wore one about like it for years except it was slick leather with no tooling and I carried a singlesix instead of a blackhawk. It had a loop to slip over the hammer for retention. I walked all over heck and half of Georgia as the saying goes but it was actually New Mexico without any problems at all. Never lost the pistol, no hangups in the bushes, or sore legs either.

    I still have it but it's useless now. It shrunk up and won't fit around my waist anymore. :D

    Well, my first thought is "it doesn't even have a hammer thong". I think I'll just follow this fellow and have a new gun when he drops it.

    Seriously, I have a friend that did carry (with hammer thong) in a hollywood style holster similar to this while hunting. He dinged up a perfectly good buttstock by letting it bang against the butt of his hog leg with every step. He now follows my lead and carries crossdraw when hunting.

    Now, if you are just handgun hunting, and want to do a fast draw on that buck, go for it. But, at least put a lanyard on the handgun so you don't loose it.
