HERE IS A REAL CLASSIC, THE EL PASO SADDLERY 1930 "AUSTIN" HOLSTER, GOOD LOOKS AND A GREAT CARRY HOLSTER. THE GUN IS A S&W 5 INCH MODEL 27. AS I RECALL, SKEETER SKELTON'S FAVORITE REVOLVER WAS A 5 INCH MODEL 27. WHEN I AM NOT CARRYING A 45 COLT MORE LIKELY THAN NOT THAT I WILL BE CARRYING THIS REVOLVER, I SHOOT IT WELL, AND IT IS VERY ACCURATE. I USE CAST BULLETS IN IT BUT ALAS, EXPERIENCE HAS SHOWN ME THAT THERE ARE FAR BETTER CHOICES IF YOU MAY WISH TO USE YOUR BELT GUN ON DEER.

Fresh out of the box new holsters are pretty no doubt. But its when they start to get that look that glow,scratch,and patina from good honest wear that they really shine.Then they have story's to tell! Beautiful rigs guys.

Nothing's really cool until the new has worn off.

Six months? I'm in my 12th month waiting for a High Country Companion. It will be worth the wait though.

ON 9/1/17 I ORDERED MY BARRANTI EK No. 5 FOR USE WITH 5 1/2 INCH RUGER BISLEYS. I GOT IT ON 2/16/18. MINE IS # 30 AND IS SERIALIZED EK30. DOC MADE MINE AND ANOTHER EK No. 5, THAT HAD BEEN ON ORDER SINCE MAY OF 2017, AT THE SAME TIME. THE FIRST PICTURE SHOWS IT AS RECEIVED, THE NEXT 2 PICTURES SHOW IT AFTER I APPLIED A GENEROUS TREATMENT OF PECARD's ANTIQUE LEATHER DRESSING. THE FIRST PICTURE SHOWS IT HOLSTERING MY 5 1/2 INCH SS JRH CUSTOMIZED 45 COLT BISLEY AND THE SECOND PICTURE SHOWS IT HOLSTERING A BOWEN PERFECTED BLUE BISLEY IN 45 COLT, BOTH WITH HIGH FRONT SIGHTS. BOTH GUNS FIT WELL IN THE HOLSTER AND THERE IS NO REAR SIGHT DEPRESSION, i.e. IT IS CUT RIGHT FOR ADUSTABLE SIGHTS. IT IS A TIGHT FIT ON MY 2 1/2 INCH WIDE EL PASO ROUGHOUT MONEY BELT BUT A NO GO ON A SLIGHTLY WIDER BELT. THE FLORAL CARVING IS OF THE "EXTRA FANCY" TYPE. A REALLY NICE LOOKING HOLSTER. PRESENT INTENTIONS ARE TO USE IT, BUT SPARINGLY, IT IS TOO NICE TO USE AS AN EVERYDAY HOLSTER.
