Ok now its holsters...
Alaska hunting is the name of the game. Generally wearing a backpack of some type. Also usually wearing binos in a chest rig. Sometimes thick alders etc.
Scoped mod 29 and probably scoped SBHH. The Galco kodiak hunter a good choice? Better options?
Pros/cons? They say same rig fits both guns.

It's a great choice. I love mine and carried it extensively in South Africa last year. It's a very versatile rig.

How well does it retain the gun without the retention strap snapped?

There's spring steel in them and it holds your revolver very well. This holster is a well kept secret!

eager to hear how you like it!

Thanks Whit. Thats what i expected but it wasnt mentioned in the description or any reviews. $184 shipped to alaska on amazon! Really like the idea that the SBHH or mod 29 will both fit.

My sons used one with his xvr 460 in africa in 2013. I now own several. Fantastic holster and hold your gun with or without optica so something like a super redhawk can be carried efficiently no matter how you change the sighting systems.

It needs that snapped to retain the revolver.

But it still cradles the revolver quite tightly. Personally, if it has a strap I use it as I have had a number of occasions where my revolver exited my holster and that is never good, no matter how good the retention.
