    I am looking for a leather OWB holster for my 2.5 inch 686 that won't break the bank. Can anyone make a suggestion?

    Bianchi Black Widow is sturdy, nothing fancy.

    Those are nice, but you must have missed the part where I said " that won't break the bank" $80-100 is more than I care to spend

    I bought a S&W branded holster similar to this when I bought my 686 4" back in 1986. I think I paid about $12-15 for it at the LGS where I bought the gun. It ain't for sale however.

    No, that's not what basic holsters cost. The Bianchi in the other post is about $50 and the Galco combat master is around $60. I have shopped around some since I made the original post. This will be mainly a range holster and $50 or less is my goal. I am disabled and on a fixed income and $100 is a lot of money to me.

    DeSantis Speed Scabbard. Google is your friend. Shop on line and you will find one for about $50.

    Do you have a favorite?

    Can you compare and contrast features if they're not too similar?

    None of them are mine. I was just suggesting.

    I have a 3 inch 686 and I have been looking too.

    And just how were we supposed to know that would be "breaking the bank" for you? o_O

    You might find it's worth it to pinch a few pennies for some solid gun leather. It'll last you the rest of your life and will work better.

    I got a Desantis thumb break model from Optics Planet for about 45 bucks. I have been happy with it, check them out.

    Thanks, I understand.

    While they all look great, I think they are above what the OP is willing to pay for a holster.
