I think my favorite Lawrence holster is the 34 series, and I have
a few:
At left Lawrence 34V Special Agent (pigskin outside and calf hide
lined. I altered it a bit to make it fit my S&W Model 10 2".
2nd from left Lawrence 34 Extra Quick Draw was cut off by a
previous owner to make it more concealable, but did a good job.
Works well with my S&W Model 29.
3rd from left Lawrence 34B (basketweave) for my S&W Model 19
Combat Magnum.
4th from left 34L (laced) formerly owned by Frank Rizzo, Chief
of Police and mayor of Philly. Looks good with my Model 67 Combat Masterpiece.
5th from left probably the prittiest Lawrence I ever had, but I
sold it. It's a 32FL (floral carved) kinda fit the Model 10 2".

Im a fan of Lawrence leather and the model 34 holsters too.
Heres one ordered with No Oil, must have been a Sunday holster worn under a nice suit.

This is a little left hander for a small frame Colt.

Regards,
turnerriver

I really like y'alls Lawrence leather. I just wish that I had paid more attention to leather 40 years ago. Tunnel vision can be a problem sometimes.

Lawrence floral tooling is particularly appealing.

Thought I had a pretty floral Lawrance, but can't find the photo of it.

So, a well-crafted basketweave for a medium-framed Colt will have to do.

My first owned Lawrence Holster is this model 211LC size 533 that I bought used in the 1960's. The cuff with the previous owner's initials is long gone and I dyed it black to cover the wear. It is shown with a pre model 28 4".



I have carried a lot of different S&W N frames in this old holster.



My oldest Lawrence is probably this Model 25 size 38 6 cut to hold a 4" S&W model M&P.

I don't have near as many George Lawrence holsters as Heiser and Myres holsters. But, they are just as nice as the other two maker's products. I think I own only 2 black holsters, and one is a Lawrence.

This is a Lawrence Model 130 holster made to fit a Ruger Blackhawk .357 with 4 5/8 barrel. The letters following the model number specifies the many options this holster has. The F is for floral carving, the C is for chamois lining, the L is for black Latigo lacing, the S is for a sight protector, the H is for a safety strap, and the D is for the color black dyed. Anybody have one with more options?

Another Lawrence Holster I own is a Model 211. On the skirt, under the holster is stamped SA 32.20 5 . I know that means it was made to fit a .32-20 caliber Colt SAA with a 5 inch barrel, but it will actually fit any SAA with a 5 inch barrel.

Larry, I can get close on the number of options but I dont think I can beat you.
This is one of the rarer Lawrence holsters I own. Its a combination belt and pocket holster for a S&W 5 .357 Magnum-that must have been a big pocket. Its marked with the Stoeger logo, the only one Ive seen. Lawrence also made holsters for Abercrombie & Fitch.
Regards,
turnerriver
