I once owned a 4" N frame. Best gun I ever sold and one of the two I regret selling the most.

Mike Barranti just sent me this picture yesterday of one he just finished for my wife's 637 2 inch S&W 38 Special. A little cross draw rig just like she asked for. I'm not sure how her purple grips are going to look in that classy holster but it's her rig.

S.D. MYRES (1871 - 1952) ORIGINATED AND/OR POPULARIZED THE JOCKSTRAP HOLSTER. HE STARTED OUT IN SWEETWATER, TEXAS THEN MOVED TO EL PASO, TEXAS, WHERE HIS HOLSTER/SADDLE COMPANY REMAINED IN BUSINESS UNTIL THE COMPANY CLOSED IN 1969.

THE FIRST 2 PICTURES ARE MYRES JOCKSTRAP HOLSTERS, THE 1st 1 IS HOLSTERING A 5 INCH S&W MODEL OF 1989 IN 45 COLT (I HAVE BEEN USING THIS COMBO A LOT LATELY), WHILE THE 2nd IS HOLSTERING A 6 INCH S&W MODEL 53 JET REVOLVER WITH A K-HORNET CYLINDER. NEITHER OF THESE HOLSTERS HAVE A RETENTION DEVICE (STRAP OR THONG) AND RELY ON A CANT AND WORKMANSHIP TO KEEP THE GUNS IN. THE 3rd ONE IS A LAWRENCE JOCKSTRAP HOLSTER, HOLSTERING A 6 INCH COLT OFFICIAL POLICE, AND THE 4th ONE IS AN EL PASO SADDLERY "SWEETWATER" JOCKSTRAP HOLSTER, HOLSTERING A 6 1/2 INCH S&W MODEL 25 CLASSIC. ALL 4 GUNS HAVE STABILIZED ELK STAG GRIPS WITH APPROPRIATE FACTORY MEDALLIONS.

HERE IS A PHOTO OF A MODIFIED S&W BRAND HOLSTER FOR MY 5 1/2 INCH SS RUGER BISLEY IN 45 COLT. I HAD THE HOLSTER MODIFIED TO FIT A WIDER BELT AND TO REMOVE SOME LEATHER AROUND THE REAR SIGHT. I WAS HAVING ISSUES WITH HOLSTERS DEPRESSING THE REAR SIGHT JUST ENUFF SO THAT THE ELEVATION SCREW COULD ROTATE (A BOWEN ROUGH COUNTRY REAR SIGHT IS ON MY "GET" LIST FOR THIS REVOLVER). JRH CUSTOMIZED THIS REVOLVER FOR ME INCLUDING FITTING A 44 MAG CYLINDER REAMED OUT TO TIGHT 45 COLT DIMENSIONS. AN AWESOME GUN, PROBABLY MY MOST USED AND CARRIED BELT GUN. SOME GUNS WE SHOOT BETTER THAN OTHERS AND THIS IS 1 OF MY TOP GUNS.
