TEST TEST TEST, HOPING I GOT 2 PHOTOS ON HERE OF A S&W 625-6 MOUNTAIN GUN IN A FANCY HUNTER HOLSTER. THIS FANCY HUNTER HOLSTER (FLORAL CARVED + LACING) MAY BE THE "FIND OF THE CENTURY" AS MOST HUNTER HOLSTERS ARE "PLAIN JANE". I FIGURE SOME GUY ON THE NIGHT SHIFT SNUCK THIS ONE INTO THE PRODUCTION LINE. THE BELT IS AN EL PASO ROUGHOUT MONEY BELT. THE 625 LAID DORMANT FOR YEARS AS I DID NOT CARE FOR THE ROUND BUTT BUT THEN I FOUND THESE ROUND BUTT TO SQUARE BUTT GRIPS ON EBAY AND THEY WORK GREAT, AND LOOK GOOD TOO. THIS GUN SHOOTS VERY WELL WITH MY OLD WEST LOADS @ AROUND 860 fps WITH THE OTBC 250 gr. FP BULLET. I CARRY THIS A LOT WHEN I AM MOSTLY DOING WORK AT THE RANCH OR A DEER LEASE. IF I AM LIKELY TO MAYBE WANT TO HUNT WITH A BELT GUN I WOULD OPT FOR SOMETHING WITH A LONGER BARREL, BUT FOR EVERYDAY USE THIS IS AN EXCELLENT OUTFIT.

Some great looking leather. I carried a Single-Six in a fast draw rig for years before going to a pair of Smiths. I've been looking for a holster that will fit a K & L frame with a Vortex Venom sight (old eyes just won't work with irons) for nearly two years without success. Looks like I need to find a good holster builder. This thread is giving me some good ideas and I am starting to lean to a cross draw rig, keep them photos coming.
Thanks
