    The "modern" D/A wheel gun. Holstered. All the cops in my town wore them when I was a kid.

    That hooked grip. The hint of frame and top strap peeking out from the holster.

    There is something .. I dunno .. elegant about a wheelgun sitting in a leather holster. You got photos of holstered wheelies? Show them off.

    And let us know who made your leather.

    Besides, seeing some leather will give me ideas for my accessory wish list.

    No image and holster is packed away, but I carried my revolver in a black basketweave, brass hardware Hoyt breakfront holster.

    This image is from another website. I never carried my reloads in anything other than a HKS speedloader case (black basketweave, brass hardware of course).

    I carried a model 58 in one of those Safariland holsters for over a decade.
    Mine was the jacket slot version.
    Still got it somewhere.

    Does the belt still fit?

    I find that the leather used on belts is often inferior quality to that used to make the matching holster and accessories. Take an old duty rig and put it away for a few years. Pick it back up and the holster is still well formed, the accessory holders work well but the actual belt seems to shrink. It a weird thing but seems to happen often.

    Why are the triggers exposed on revolvers with some holsters? I've always wondered that.

    Around one leg, yeh, why????:(:eek:

    They were fast. A heck of a lot of us old timers managed to muddle through an entire career without shooting ourselves in the butt too.:cool:
    Those extra safe rigs of today woulda got me killed a couple of times. I can tell you for sure, when you're watching the muzzle of the BG's gun come up at you, you don't want to be remembering to push some buttons or stuff.

    Many times a holster that did not cover the trigger had a strap of leather or a loop that prevented the gun from going off because while pulling the trigger because the strap or loop would not let the hammer back.

    This Bianchi 5BH has carried my N frame for a few years. Prior to that, a Safariland equivalant.
