Default Chest Rig

Diamond D Custom Leather.
I had a 4" 500 and used their chest holster.
First rate product.
I think the best way to carry the XFrame.

I second what lawdog45 said. The Guide's Choice by Diamond D is
first rate. Galco's Kodiak is pretty good too. I wanted an inexpensive
one for a one-time use, so I bought a nylon rig from Crossfire. Their's
is called the "Alaskan". Crossfire Elite: Idaho & Dallas, Houston, TX: IWB, OWB Glock Pistol & Revolver Holsters, Concealed Carry

I have a Galco Great Alaskan for my N frames and El Paso Saddlery Tanker for my 4" 500. Both work well.

Can't go wrong with Galco.

I'm looking for a GOOD quality drop leg holster for my 8 3/8th barrel 500.
..I can't seem to find a good one...cheap crappy ones are easy to find though.

I had the Galco for my Raging Bull 454 but I use tankers for my Rugers while fishing in bear country. Also like a Doc Holliday rig.
