Two nice older Bucheimer's I found on EBay, a BPM 45 that's perfect for my Hi-Power, and a B355 Federal Man that's for my S&W 559. The thumb break on the Federal Man is the nicest on any holster I have, you can mow the lawn or run a marathon and it wont come undone but just touch it to release it and it pops free. The retention strap on the BPM 45 allows the pistol to be carried cocked and locked. Got them for $27.00 apiece plus shipping, they are in like new shape. The BPM also fits my commander size 1911 perfectly.
While some have told me that they cannot wear a shoulder holster for more than 5 minutes, I do wear shoulder holsters at times. This one is a vintage REDHEAD brand #1808R that works well with my Ruger 1911. I find it comfortable all day long.
The 3" K Frame revolvers were not an option until the 1970s and 1980s when the FBI started issuing them to their agents. Of course the 3" I and J frames went way back. Around 1980 I got my first 3" K frame a Model 13-2 which I had modified to DA only. (Police Dept. thinking) for my plain clothes duty revolver. Holsters were not were not in great supply but I found this SAFARILAND model 530 for 3" K Frame. with spring attachment.
