Default A well dressed revolver is a thing of beauty.

As I have posted elsewhere on the forum, I recently had some incredible luck finding deals on nice Smiths. I found myself the proud owner of 2 6" 28-2s and 1 4". I also was lucky enough to score a set of Ken's grips in moose antler for the 4". OK, we got the shoes, but we're on our way to the BBQ and we don't have a dress that will fit. We've been lucky so far let's push a little more.
A bit ago, bamabiker had an auction to benefit the site, selling a beautiful half flap holster he had made for a 4" K/L frame. I bid but wasn't the winner. So I contacted him and asked if he made holsters for others or just himself. I said I would love the chance to have him make me a holster for my recently purchased 4" 28. He responded by saying he makes mostly for himself, or other forum members who have reached out to him, like me. He also said he was in the process of moving and his tools were stored and he wouldn't be doing any leatherwork for awhile.
But then the wheels came triple sevens again. He said he had a half flap he had made for a 4" N frame and never used except to take pics of. He showed me a pic and asked if I would like to buy it. Not slow, here. I jumped on it. I received it yesterday and I am over the moon happy with it. Beautiful, well made and fits my gun and belt like a glove. No movement whatsoever. I'm thinking it should have come with a rack of ribs and some sauce, or at least a side of slaw. We're ready for the BBQ now!

A thing of beauty is an understatement. That holster is gorgeous.

It's even better in person. The pics don't do it justice.

Makes me want to run out and fire up the barbecue so I could invite you over!
Really nice, and the carving really suits the N frame size.

Nice dress, a bit more material than I like but I am fond of the mini skirt which shows a bit more to get excited about.

Thatís just a beautiful package. Those grips and holster would make anything special.
bamabiker really did a nice job on that half-flap holster. There is a lot of talent on thes forum to say the least.
Have i said that I like it a lot? 😎

Yes, there is alot of talent here. And I have been making use of those talents. Since the first of the year, I have bought 7 pairs of bigmtnman's grips, 7 from 44magget, 5 BK grip adapters and this holster. If we have someone making pizzas, I'm not shopping anywhere else!

Nothing but the truth. It's gorgeous, as crazyphil has officially classified it, and is exactly what I wanted in a holster for this gun. Everything about it is top notch and I couldn't be happier.
