This is a chest rig by 7x Leather, and the quality is hard to beat as far as I'm concerned.

7X Leather is tops, as Max points out. Diamond D Custom Leather makes their Guide's Choice, another fine option. Barranti Leather's Northwest Hunter is another favorite.

Cheers,

That revolver looks like a beauty.

John if you ever make it down here I'll show you the one I made. It's for my S+W model 57 8 3/8" bbl. w/ compartments for 2-speed loaders + sheath for my Puma white hunter + a loop to hold a mini-mag flashlight while leaving the left should open for using a rifle if need be.


Never mistake motion for action.

my bad, they DO make a tanker for a blackhawk. sure wish they weren't running 1- 2 months out though. wonder if bobby mcnellis still runs that place.

Jonn: I have one for a BFR 475. Used it for years in Alaska while fishing. The gun rides high enough that it is still accessible while wearing waders. It also works well while wearing a backpack. Worth the wait.

Mark and Whitworth I have always liked the look of the 7X. It would be the best way to carry some of my heavy guns to still be ready when the rifle isn't the right gun for the job. In or out of the truck it looks useful. Frequently the simplest is the most elegant. Be Well, Packy.

They will make their tanker holster for most pistol or revolvers - I have holsters for: 1911, Browning Hi-Power, Colt Woodsman and Smith & Wesson N frame.

I like all chest holsters and some crossdraw holsters as well. It just depends on the use. I wanted to add. We all know, but please be careful to not sweep yourself as you draw. Crossdraw and chest carry look to me to increase the possibility a bit. Be Well, Packy.

I have a Ruger Blackhawk .41 mag that I use a tanker for a chest rig to carry it under my rain gear when hunting and camping in Alaska. It also works great when traveling driving. The pistol is easy to get into action if needed while driving, and even in cold weather, for concealment under a jacket while walking around town.
In Alaska it is always on me even when in camp, or in the alders taking a dump.
Bears or criminals, it is ready.

A lot of years ago I had a Bianchi shoulder rig for my 6" model 586 S&W that worked well for a budget holster. I think they made them for different revolvers.

I have owned many holsters over the last 50 plus years of using handguns.

I brought the best leather on/off duty holsters money could buy I worn them everyday 8 to 12 hours a day 5 or more days a week.

All my leather holsters are sitting on the shelve I now use and wear non leather holster everyday.

Except Sunday when I wear a nice horse hide pancake for my 1911 Sunday go to meeting pistol.

It is only worn 2hrs a week then under a suit coat so far it has held up.

When I see a leather holster with no marks on it I know that it is not used day in day out.

Maybe not used at all because when used they get sweat on them they get bumped and banged around leaving marks.

I had a K-38 6" as beautiful as they ever made.

Left it stored in a nylon holster with several others in leather holsters in about 50-60% humidity. Yeah I know!!

The nylon holster was the only one that showed
any rust and it very much ruined the finish on
the K 38. Just for that reason I'd never put
a gun I valued in another one, not even to wear.

This gun looks nice with a frosty black finish.
Made me almost cry when I discovered it with a
1/16" of rust all over it.

Having right at 40 surgeries since Nov '12. I
hadn't been able to access anything, let alone
my guns. Being single kept others out of most of
'em too. Til I was out for 4 months. Then 6
disappeared along with a bunch of other stuff.

Gotta prove it to file charges even when you
know damned well who took it all.

Just sharing is all.

Anyone have experience with Chisholm trail holsters out of Georgia? Their cowboy gear looks good but I’m not sure about their stuff for modern guns
