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...

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 find the classic duty holsters in basketweave to be quite beautiful. This one was made by L&A Leather (Calif.) dating back to 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.

Nice Red, did you stack the welts like the original ? I'm still not sure why the welt at the muzzle of the Brills gets thicker. Thanks for all your efforts! Mark

Nope :-)

Rabensburg (the one I exploded was a late-era Brill) went to so much trouble with the lip and the interlaid welts at the muzzle, that I must conclude/theorise/wonder if he didn't mean to take all the pressure off the muzzle end; which I can do, too, simply with wet moulding.

Both companies are side by side in the Denver city directories briefly in the 50s then Heiser disappears from them leaving Mueller and Colorado Saddlery still there. A glance at Mueller's catalogues then suggests they were a wholesaler of saddlery items rather than making all their own products :-)

I only have one purty holster, carved & lined that I bought from forum
member. I have a lot of same holsters pictured only I bought a mine
plain, natural leather tan. My holsters get drug though thickets and the
carved models would be ruined. Same reason I buy natural leather. When
they get scratched up you can just rub them out with neatsfoot. They
still look like they been in a sword fight but that only gives them some
character. I always trade off carved, basket weave or died leather.

Beautiful holster and belt! But one-point of correction, it is definitely RIGHT handed! 🙃

Hope it's not unfair to post again ... especially because the subject matter is not an S&W, but I just got a new hosting site and am finally able to upload pictures again ...



Just to keep it legal I'll add an S&W, the ivory handles didn't photo very well ...

Com'on 153, You tantalize us, and then don't give us the info. Please share the names of the guns, and the makers, of those snazzy holsters. Thanks.

Paul;
It's easy to see why your choice is easy to make. Although you make no mention of the holster maker, or the beautifully engraved S&W revolver, I'd guess, that the holster maker is the one that made one that I have. It's a lot like yours, in design, color and finish. I rescued this one from a scrap holster barrel In a gun store, it needed a lot of fix'in. Yours is the only other one, looking near like mine, that I've ever seen. Thanks for sharing with us. Here's a picture, of mine. I'll let you judge.
