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...

This Heiser #728 is not too shabby to enter a beauty contest.

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

Here’s another which I don’t see too often....

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.
