Iwb & owb holsters

jaywaptijaywapti Senior MemberPosts: 4,931 Senior Member
I need both for my Charter Arms .44, 2 1/2" bbl. The only one I could find was " Side Guard Holsters " I searched Midway, Brownells, and the web, and didn't find anything else, so I'm open to any and all suggestions.

    OWB - Mernickle holsters. I own two of them, and LOVE them. One for my Kimber Ultra-carry and one for my S&W 29.

    I don't wear IWB holsters much anymore, but have heard good things about the ones built like Crossbreed's Supertuk.

    I'd suggest contacting Old Faithful Holsters.
    With as many different, and sometimes oddball handguns they make holsters for, I figured they would have the Bulldog listed, but it's not one of their listed models :uhm:

    I bought one of their holsters for my dad's B'day earlier this month and was impressed with it :up: :up:

    My eval of such holsters has changed some, if the holster gets in the right spot it is a good one and you can forget you have it on. Have it be a couple inches off that spot
    and it is uncomfortable in a big way.

    And to think, I had a hand in your change of heart when I put my "Chrisbreed" 1911 holster on you up @ Jerry's a couple of years ago :tooth:

    I bought a crossbreed for my 1911, and I liked it so much I got one for my FNP45. Now if you can carry an FNP45 IWB, you're either big-boned like me, or you wear a lot of ill-fitting clothing. Anyways, I like them enough to recommend them to friends. Good luck with not adding to your holster graveyard.

    I prefer to carry OTW and I've been using this with my bulldog for several years now and have been totally happy with it.

    So far it's looks like either a Mernicle or Ted Blocker, Bianchi doesn't list the M-1109 any more.

    I looked at Midway and I think they just changed the model #. It looks like it's now the Bianchi 7 Shadow 2.

    So have you gotten the holster and do you like it? I believe Paul (Knitepoet) had tried that same model and didn't care for it, but then he and I are shaped a little differently.

    Fish, got the holster, been wearing it, fits the .44 perfect almost like the leather was molded over the gun. Very comfortable to wear, since I'm skinny ( 5"10" 146lbs ) I wear the belt on the outside of the holster, the only thing I don't like is the safety snap over the hammer, it would be better if it was one piece snaping on the outside of the holster instead of over the hammer, but I can live with it until I find a good leather smith that can modify it and do a good neat job.
