Default 66-8 2.75" Holster for a Southpaw

Hi Folks,

It has been some time since I visited the forum; I hope everyone is doing well. Anyhow I stopped in the gun store today to peruse the inventory and low and behold there was a new model 66-8 snubby with a 2.75" barrel in the display case. I just had to have it. So here I sit with my new blaster wondering where I am going to find an OWB holster, preferrably with a closed bottom, for this odd sized barrel of 2.75" as opposed to the more common 2.5"? Plus I am a lefty which can make holster shopping worse. I prefer Avenger style holsters but am not opposed to a pancake. Custom makers or off the rack is fine with me; I am flexible. Any help is appreciated! Thanks, Southpaw

Pic's..... we need pics of your new 66.....

oh as far as holsters go... there are several quality hide benders on the Forum... Snubbyfan, 05Carbonz, Doc Baranti, and a few others... Lobo or Simply Rugged. If they can't do it, it can't be done.


Welcome back.

Welcome back.


I will look into those makers, thank you! Quick Pic per your request. Not my best shooting but could be worse with a new gun at 7 yards.

Here's mine. Was disappointed to find that it's beefier barrel does not fit into my many custom 3" holsters. Looking for options, but hope that I can get TT Gunleather to make something.

I like your grips; let me know if TT will do the work maybe we can entice him by putting an order in at the same time.
