Talk about your holster for a model 29 and 57 S&W's

I'm shopping.....Tell me what holster (leather or horsehide)
you've tried and trued for your model 29. Mine is a 4" model,
and I've got a few ideas, but wouldn't mind hearing other
views on carrying this beast. I will occasionally be carrying
it for concealment, but mostly just desert walking. Thanks
for your opinions ahead of time!

I bought a S&W 629 4" Mountain Gun earlier this year and have bought three holsters so far. A Kramer "Flap Explorer" flap holster - a friend had this $150 holster in perfect shape and sold it to me for 50 bucks. I couldn't pass up the deal even though I'm not sure what use I have for it.

A Bianchi Thumbsnap leather belt holster, model 5BHL. Very nice holster and excellent fit. Very heavy leather.

A Bianchi Accumold, molded nylon holster which is great for knockin' around in the woods. They are a really good-quality nylon holster, hold their shape very well and it doesn't hurt them a bit if they get soaking wet.

My favorite for my K & N frame 4" guns is the Texas Heritage from Tucker Gunleather. It is a tuckable IWB. The rake is adjustable and it does a great job of holding the grip in to your body to minimize printing. The support clips are far enough apart that it makes a gradual lump that is less obvious than many I've tried.

The downside is that it requires two hands to reholster. As a civilian, that's not a problem. But they also make one that is Kydex and leather for one handed reholster.

Holster for 629

I bought a High Ride holster from Tauris. Here is a link:

I ordered mine with the thumb snap. Took about a month to get and can get the belt loops to fit belt width. The mouth is reinforced and I like the body shield. Seemed to have everything I was looking for.

I've never heard of Tauris leather but they look like great holsters. Thanks for the link.

Well-I like the Tauris model, it is a consideration as is the
Milt Sparks PMK. I will eventually look at the Kramer flap
and the Sparks 200AW, but today my check went to Josh
Bulman for a FDS and a speedloader case. He sounded a
little under the weather, but was a very nice guy and quite
personable. As soon as I receive it (7 weeks approx-not too
bad, eh?), I let you know what I think!

I have a Milt Sparks PMK for my 4" 625 (same size frame as the 29). It does a surprisingly good job of hiding the N-Frame revolver, even under a over sized shirt. It doesn't make it any lighter in weight, which I find to be the big drawback to carrying revolvers, particularly large ones.

Another Possibility

The Tucker HF3 Revolver belt holster does for revolvers what the HF1 does for pistols. That is a very secure carry with good retention, fast draw and no "wiggling" around. The picture below is and example. We've had very good response to this holster.

M. Hall,

The name does not sound familiar, but then I'm getting old and forgetful. I may have run into him at sometime if he's from around here and I just don't remember.

Sorry...
