    I guess you need to be more specific about what an arm and a leg is...

    I consider $100 to be quite reasonable for a quality holster. My last two purchases were $135 and $110. I considered both to be really good deals considering what I bought.

    if this is a thread for looking for holsters,,,

    Are there any leathersmiths out there that manufacture a full shoulder rig for a left hander with vertical carry for a glock 21? Meaning that the holster is to be carried under the right arm. If so, pm me with a quote.

    Take a look at the 3-slot pancake holster here:

    www.red-diamond-unif.com/G&G-Goldline.htm

    This is just for representative purposes. I'm not recommending this particular vendor.

    Also, you might try looking at the Don Hume line on www.gunnersalley.com (and I am recommending these guys - dealt with them quite a bit and been happy every time). The Hume holsters are an exceptional value.

    Rob Leahy of Simplyrugged.com is reputable and quick for a custom leather holster. Instant gratification? Galco Phoenix.

    I just acquired a Model 15 k-frame. any other suggestions out there for a holster? The Bianchi 5BHL looks good -but is there anything out here with a trigger cover?

    Edit: Oops! I just checked out the link in post #7. It has a covered trigger.

    Simply Rugged makes very good and comfortable holsters for a fair price. DeSantis also makes a good product. Both their Speed Scabbard and Thumb Break Scabbard are very comfortable holsters for all day carry. They list for $65 but I buy them locally for $43 each.

    Archangel: Thanks for the links. I had seen Simply Rugged's website before and had forgotten about it. That looks like exactly what I need.

    For 4" K frame hoslters, there are so many options. Simply Rugged is good, Bianchi 5BHL's are great, but if you are seriously penny-pinched, go to ebay and you can find 20 for sale at any time for $10 or less. Do your homework, and some of them are classic designs dating back to the '20s. I insist upon a thumb safety, personally, so we are on the same page.

    Just some cut-rate shopping advice - there are millions of these K guns out there, and millions of holsters. Search for what you want -there's no need to settle for something you don't like or if you are cash strapped, to pay very much.

    My very favorite OWB belt K frame holster is the "Roy's original" pancake. They are out of business (Roy died a while ago), but they are fantastic and available used frequently. Here's a 2.5" with the pancake.

    For woods carry, I really like the WWII classic "Tanker" or "Pilots" holster. These are great and functional when you don't need to conceal. Pacific Canvas and Leather imports a cheap Chinese knock-off for $40 (Cabela's sells it). It will hold a 66 well. I use if for both a 10 or a 66 in 4".

    1) OWB Roy's Original

    2) WWII Tanker style, Not a 4" Model 10, but a custom job made to look like it:
