How bout a photo?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.
Me too. The biggest thing I routinely carry is a K-frame snub and even that is rare.Don't carry N frames as they are way to heavy for concealed.
I have carried lesser revolvers when required but my choice is a S&W N frame with a 4” tapered barrel, chambered for the 45 ACP cartridge. With the skinny barrel and big holes it is about the same weight as a M19 but shoots a cartridge I prefer....Just curious, why would anyone want/need to conceal an N-frame? The only reason I can think of for choosing an N-frame would be if the 44 magnum was necessary...
(edited 16 November, 2019)I previously used a Bianchi 5BH but about 7-8 years ago switched to fancier leather for EDC.
I agree on the Perry Suspenders. I have a collection and wear them all the time.Hey Motorman,
Usually I use a shoulder rig, for the 6-1/2" or 8-3/8"..
Will use a belt rig for the 4" or 5", and on occasion the 6-1/2"
Get a GOOD BELT, and a pair of suspenders! The Perry Suspenders hook onto the belt...
I carried a 629 deer hunting for quite a few years in an Uncle Mikes shoulder holster. It was quite comfortable.Since I'm back to revolvers after a long absence, and since
deciding on carrying a 3" 629 (go BIG or don't go), I would
appreciate to hear from the crowd who like large revolvers.
What do you carry, and more importantly, how do you carry
What style of holster do you like? Make & manufacturer
Pics would be great. Show off that big iron holstered or
out in the open for all to enjoy.
Thanks so much for your time and comments.
