    Holster recommendations....

    So this last week I have 2 new revolver additions added to the stable a Colt 1917 circa 1917 and a Ruger 357 BH 6.5" 3 screw circa 1965. Since both are classic vintage pieces I want to give then each a nice leather suit. I have used Mernickle holsters in the past and like them quite a bit. Lined leather holsters done right are not cheap. Was looking at El Paso Saddlery and looks like good stuff but pricey.

    Any recommendations for quality lined leather holsters is appreciated.

    High Noon.
    They are not cheap but they are excellent holsters.
    I highly recommend them.

    Galco also makes nice holsters.

    I wish Lawrence was still in business. They offered wonderful holsters. Bought a lined basketweave one for my Colt Trooper Mk III 357 back in the mid 1970's. Terrific holster!

    I'd like another for my 45 Colt New Service.

    Q: has anybody put together a Sticky, etc, for various leather pieces for different CAS classes?

    I'm interested in a best-practices sort of thing.
    Experience is a wonderful teacher, so I'm hunting for a tutor..

    Have a look at Lobo Gunleather. He's done good work for me, and he offers lined holsters. Less expensive than the big name brands.

    I'm not sure about lined holsters, but Bianchi seems to have always made quality holsters.

    I like El Paso Saddlery for belts and holsters...........

    If you order direct, the wait can be a couple pf months, unless they've gotten their act together, but you can also try Amazon for a stocking dealer.

    I "lucked out" at the Tulsa gun Show, and was able to buy an Austin Holster and a #2 Texas Belt from a stocking dealer..........She had MORE El Paso gear than I've ever seen in one place.

    There are plenty of guys here that do fine leather work, too................

    I really appreciate the recommendations. El Paso Saddlery looks like some real nice stuff as does as well as the Lobo and High Noon. Pricey but looks good. I was/am open to suggestion(s) but I went back to ordering from Mernickle Holsters. I have been buying leather from Bob Mernickle out in Nevada for almost a decade now. He's been doing it now for almost 40 years and is big into SASS. What's nice about his work is it's all leather lined and well fitted to whatever you have and very reasonably priced. The different types of styles and carry configurations he has developed is awesome IMO. I spoke with him at length and ordered 4 holsters, Ruger Single Six 4 5/8, Colt 1917, Ruger BH 357 6", and for my S&W 1899 (Model 10 frame) 6 1/2". All 4 convertibles with strong side vertical and cross draw belt slots. At 80.00 a piece I was very pleased. I have 8 or so of his work along with a shoulder rig from him prior to this. The four I am getting from him cost me the same as 2 or 3 of the others. He has sold the business and is working for a year to train the new owners and this will probably be some of his last work. I personally didn't get into SASS but truly respect the ones whom have and have made the sport and the industry what it is. We spent over half an hour shooting the breeze and talking vintage revolvers and the nuances thereof.

    I know that they are not lined but I like the Simply Rugged Sour Dough Pancake holster a lot for large short barreled revolvers. They are wonderful when working around the farm. Lobo makes some very nice holsters also. I was extra pleased with the last one I received.
