Default ANOTHER "DOG EAR" HOLSTER

I have been collecting holsters with "dog ears" aka hammer
protectors, for quite some time. The picture below on the left
was my collection yesterday. But today I added one more.
It is a black basket weave by Tex Shoemaker, size 4, which
is a perfect fit for my S&W Model 67 Combat Masterpiece, as
shown in the photo 2nd from left. The gorgeous Ranger style
belt was a gift from my friend Red Nichols. The holster
appears to be new. I doubt a gun was ever in it. Maybe it
came from their recent closeout sale.

I had a smaller version of the same holster, but I gave it away
a few years ago here on a karma deal, because it was left
handed and I'm not. I have been looking for a good one
ever since. This is it.

Most, but not all, of this style holster, is your basic Tom
Threeperson's design with an added hammer protector.
I kinda like em.

You can click on the photo once or twice to enlarge
for a better view.

Wow! That is quite a collection. From reading your many outstanding and enjoyable posts on holsters, you must have lots of “holster drawers!”

Lotta lopsided dogs--don't you need some left ears to even the poor things up?

No drawers. I have a wall, covered with peg board, in a walk
in closet where I keep them. Whenever the wall gets full I
have a sale. (And it's just about full.) And thank you for
enjoying my posts. It's enjoyable for me too.

Beautiful collection, Phil. I know you’ve probably shared it before, but what is the holster third from the left in the top row, the darker russet colored one?

Yeh I should have kept those left handed holsters so I could
carry one on each side. But then I had the same worry that
this guy has.

You have an eye for quality. That is a Seventrees Combat
Speed Scabbard. I got it from our friend and leader turnerriver.
Here is a little better shot of it carrying my S&W Model 19
Combat Magnum.
