Default More Plastic!

Yup, I know I'm untraditional. G10 and Kydex on a wheel gun!?!!? Say whaaaaat?!

L.A.G. Tactical did an amazing job for me again on a custom revolver holster for my 65 3"



Matchy matchy next to my 66 4"


Here's the full carry setup, I made the speed loader thingy myself

Yup - Kydex makes sense. I just can't get into plastic! Not bad-mouthing Kydex, it's light, strong, has great shape retention, cheap to produce, weatherproof, oil resistant, and readily available. All that said, I "ain't" ready to give up my traditional leather horsehide holsters yet.

I agree it's not for everybody. I love leather and have leather AND plastic for most of my guns. But for training rigs and bouncing around in the desert, it's hard to beat Kydex.
