Default RADAR Holsters... (Part 1: 4" N-Frame / Part 2: 2" J-Frame)

Part 1: OWB for 4" N-Frame

There was a question about RADAR Holsters in this GREAT Show your knives and revolvers! THREAD (Page 3,
posts #122-125). So -as promissed- a bit more information:

RADAR is an Italian Company, founded in 1957. Today one of the biggest European Holster-Makers:
Police duty gear, gun holsters, military supply, army equipment | RADAR 1957


"Before the Internet" I knew them only from (paper)catalogues, here is a link to the newest one
(Sorry, only in German, but at least you can scroll through the pictures...)
400 Bad Request
My first thoughts: Elegant looking (their Leather-things !) Holsters. Italian Design, as Ferrari, Benelli,
Beretta...(FIAT ?). Hmm...


Someday I had the chance, to get one for a very good price. My first RADAR

with M 29-2 + HOGUE ROSEWOOD:






IMHO with the Strong Side / Cross Draw Option a very universal OWB - Holster.
With the Farrant's on (3. pic) a bit more compact "package".

But with all due respect, P.44 -- what would Radar have done if they hadn't had a Bianchi #5B to copy? It is excellence in Italian design, but by the Italian named John Bianchi :-).

Hello Red,
of course you are right !
In this case (BIANCHI ./. RADAR) at least it "stays between the Italians" ...

My old computer "broke down" and typing on on a tablet (or even worser on a smart-phone) is -at least for me- a bit "like driving an
Alfa Romeo with thick winter-boots". Therefore the last months I was "more in reading than in posting something". Still trying to
rescue some older pictures.


So here / at the moment only one question:
When -and how, eventual a signed exemplar ?- can we get your book ?

Just seeing on your homepage...obviously you are still working on it....and just found (post#16) Old Bianchi Breakfront... I was
interested in something like this since March 2016...

Thanks in advance + Always the Best
Peter

Part 2: Upside Down Shoulderholsters for 2" J-Frame

Finaly I could "rescue" a few older Holster pictures:

"RADAR 1"





"RADAR 2" (= next post)




The holsters weren't exactly adjusted for my wife...but for sure she looks waay better
(with or without holsters) than me



P.44
If I'll find the time, I'll may type down "The Story" of the holsters later...
