    well, i've never carried 5", as i don't personally own a 5". However, that being said, i have effectively carried a 4" in a couple of different ways. First, is the "Dirty Harry" method, vertical shoulder under a jacket or a loose over shirt. Being from Florida....i wouldn't suggest this one for ya. What has probably worked the best in my experience is, using an otw style yaqi-type slide holster. What i do, is position the holster directly over my right back pocket, such that when the firearm is in position, the barrel slides into by back pocket. Realize, that there is some potential for your rig to be spotted if you wear a button up shirt with decent tails, untucked you should be alright. Granted, i also carried in this method in an open carry state, so if i would have become exposed, it would not have been much of an issue. Hope this helps some!

    N Frame or Larger Revolver Owners-How Do You Carry?

    Zero. Boating accident wiped me out. (Kidding)

    One good thing about being a big ole redneck, most handguns slide securely behind the belt at 6 o’clock. Loose shirt covers pretty well.

    I particularly like the Bianchi 5B holster. This 4" Model 57 41 Magnum is right at home in this one.

    This Basket Weave Bianchi 5B looks good on a 5 Screw 6 1/2" pre model 27 .357 Magnum.

    Of course with older revolvers as this pre war 38/44 5" it is nice to have a Carved S. D. Myres even though strap has been replaced.

    Years ago there were some holster makers that did not mark their work. I do not think that was because they were cheap. This plain black holster fits the 38/44 5" well Name:  standard.jpg

    My woods concealed carry is a 4" S&W 29-2 .44 magnum in a Bianchi 5 Black Widow holster @ 3:00 on my belt covered by an untucked shirt. My woods or hunting open carry is either an 8" Colt Anaconda .44 magnum or 7 1/2" Ruger Super Redhawk .454 Casull in a cross chest holster.

    What do you carry, and more importantly, how do you carry
    it?
    What style of holster do you like? Make & manufacturer
    would help.
    Pics would be great. Show off that big iron holstered or

    Thanks so much for your time and comments.
    Why my S&W Performance Shop 460 of course and sometimes my dad's 44RM long barrel but mostly the 460 in a ballistic nylon cross draw chest holster on the outside of my camo. It's heavy, too heavy to wear / carry any other way. Even the 44 RM is heavy enough in the DeSantis holster to pull my pants down if I don't have my belt cinched tight.

    I like the cross draw because it's super easy to get the revolver out but I still need to find a tree to steady it. It's one shot terminal on deer out to 100-120 yards and extremely loud so my standard haring protection, Walkers Game Ears are always inserted. The 460 and the 44 can cause serious hearing issues.

    The ballistic nylon cross draw I have accepts the scope mounted as well. Think I paid about 40 bucks for it on Flea-Bay a couple years ago. Worth every penny. Just like an under the armpit rig but fits on your chest.

    Thanks for all of your N Frame holster input. It has been helpful. I recently ordered and received a Wright Leather Works pancake for my 629 3" and it works well. It will carry better once the cooler weather arrives, where I can wear a vest and/or a jacket. It is a surprise that this style of holster can actually hold and help conceal this large frame revolver. I also ordered a horsehide 1 3/4" belt from Kramer Leather in Tacoma, which should help support the weight.

    I previously used a Bianchi 5BH but about 7-8 years ago switched to fancier leather for EDC.

    This Mitch Rosen works well for me and this 625, keeping it tight to the body.
