Which Holster?
« on: September 13, 2018, 10:28:47 AM »
Picking a holster for my new 1860. I've narrowed it to the following...








This one is a bit short...





And, of course, a cross-draw...

The first one but a cross draw is handy for an eight incher. No conchos though, that's just bling.

Hi Electric, I like number two. However, for a premium great look, a LeatherSmithMike holster would be the nuts.

Regards,

The disc on the second holster is an old Mexican peso.

My 45 cartridge belt and holster both sported Mexican Peso's as well. Home made slotted for the holster and screw back for the gun belt. However my friends at Southwest Airlines managed to lose them both with my luggage a month ago. They were a relatively common embellishment along the border.

I like #1 and #2 for an 1860. I like #3 and #4 for an SAA.

I always prefer a crossdraw on an 8-incher.
