I love Beauty Contests! Great looking leather.

Please give me some kind of fair warning before the bikini portion of the competition starts.

I sure you guys are staying fit but most of your bikini days are probably over.

Sure are some pretty holsters above. I only have a couple from Warbird Leather for my EB Kobra Carry; one with elephant trim, the other with shark. Oops, forgot about the 5”with alligator trim...
Generally, the only time I wear them is at the annual NRA conference.

I’ve always liked good quality well finished “working leather goods.” I’ve got several working holsters, reload, and belt combos. But, sometimes I feel the need to be showy, so here is my one fancy dress rig. Alligator belt, carved holster by Doc Barranti, (expensive and long lead times, but well worth it) a 2x2x2 reload pouch, and a nickel model 19-3.

The second set of photos same belt and gun, but in a little more of a day-to-day holster. A Hoyt Speed Break.

Since there is a 38 box there, Troopers I would guess. They made the Trooper in 357, and the Model designated 357 was basically the same gun. Pre-Python without the underlug.

I remember troopers having a shrouded ejector rod, unless I am mistaken.

This was quite beautiful when I got it - nearly new! That was 4 decades ago and it now shows some wear...

Forgot I still had this Lawrence rig. Unfortunately, it's wrong handed.

A holster and mag carrier in “Stingray” made by my brother-in-law for a Kimber Classic Custom (which I no longer have)....

Absolutely gorgeous. When was the last time you saw twins in a beauty contest?

Sorry Bruce, I should have been more specific. I was asking about the holster. Thanks.

Both of these are made by Tucker. The light tan is a cross draw. Both belts in the photos are the $30 belts.

Default Viking

Now here is one that you don't see every day. This is a Viking, made in old Mexico. It is rather plain with just the basket weave pattern, but I think that it has old school class. The gun is a 2nd Model 44 with genuine jigged bone stocks.

I've always found the classic duty holsters in basketweave to be beautiful. This one was made by L&A Leather (Calif.) Probably dates back to early-mid 1970s.

Default Contestant?

Here is one that I think shows beauty, through nice work. It depicts a Wild Boar's head, and is sued lined. I don't know what revolver it was made for, and I wish that I knew the maker. I shamefully modified it, by adding an adapter strap, so I can use it, with my S&W 6" Mod. 14, or 17.

Default Simplicity

Here is a G. Lawrence holster, that derives it's beauty from it's sheer simplicity, and it's efficient design. It will nicely fit S&W 6" K models, and if one doesn't mind " fudging" a little, it will fit, Colt 4" round , or flat bbl. Woodsman, and Huntsman, etc.

I'm late to the party. This one was commissioned for a Ruger Sheriff's model barrel length, image is by the customer (no guns here). It's made from an actual Brill pattern, shortened; the mould was shortened and had its ejector rod housing removed then reinstalled and returned to full length (the things one will do to make a customer completely happy). Simplified over the Brill by eliminating the muzzle lip and instead stitching the muzzle to the fender directly through the welt stitching itself. Recall that the cuff forms the lower half of the belt tunnel so despite it looking as if the holster carries vertically, it is at about 25 degrees 'positive'. Cuff is attached with teenuts vs the hand sewing of the original Brill by Rabensburg '32 to '55 (this is one of his patterns).


The 'carving' is instead entirely stamped; that is, no swivel knife was used to cut the basic outline.
