revolver carry option

Postby hawkthrower » Fri Jun 01, 2012 6:21 pm

Here's a design I've been working on - I've finally got the pattern worked out. I wanted to be able to carry my 1858 short .44 on hunting trips where I do a lot of scrambling through the brush and in rough terrain. I kept bashing it when I had it on a hip belt holster, and it seemed to restrict my movement.....So a shoulder holster gets it up and out of the dirt when I'm thrashing through some rough stuff....and I wanted to keep it simple...

THANKS! Nice tooling, I could see the tooling in the first pic, but the others show the detail so much better.
