Anyone around here have one?? I'm gonna order one for the SBH BisHunter. He custom makes them for your gun. I emailed pics to Von and will mail him a tracing of my gun and payment tomorrow. I talked to a guy here at a gunshow a couple weeks ago who said it;s the best holster he's ever had and it took him 20 years to find it. He says that with the wrap around design it's form fitting and doesn't flop around. Very easy to get on a off when taking off your coat, etc. Not a bunch of straps to fool with.

Here's a pic Von emailed of one with what looks like a redhawk. Notice the buttons on the strap. You could tighten it up and raise it higher. I think this pic gives the illusion that it is larger than it really is.

Here's another pic from Ringlers website.



And a couple from Dustin Linebaugh's site for sixguns without a scope. It looks like this one's been carried some.

Nice looking rig.

I have a similar rig from Pistol Packaging called the Bandito. What I like is the ease of changing holsters for each gun. Have you seen the Bandito?

Ya, I looked at pics of the Pistol Packaging rigs and they looked like the holster would flop around. Maybe I'm wrong?

Anyway, I just mailed off a check and a tracing of my gun to Von Ringler to make my rig. I'll be the forum guinea pig on this one and let you all know what I think when it shows up. He said 3-4 weeks turn around time. I figure add another week or two for mail time, etc. I should have it by mid April.

I know that Fowler here on the board has one and seems to like it very much. I've seen his and it seems very well constructed. Mike Barranti makes a nice one also called the NW Hunter rig. I have one of his and love it for hunting just as another option. The turnaround time is not as fast as Ringler's though if that matters

I have a couple of them. I haven't tried them all but this holster is the most comfortable rig I've found. I've never worn mine around my waist, only over the shoulder. It doesn't flop around or slide, except when your crawling up on something. Then it will slide under your belly. If you get a belt strap attached to the back side of the holster it will stay put. The early holster I have didn't come with the strap but I sewed one on and attached a snap. If I were getting this rig I would make sure it had one

Yes I like my combo holster, I generally prefer a right hip holster for 99% of the time in the back country. But for hunting in the back country it is nice as you can keep it under a jacket really easily. Also works very well while carrying a gun fishing with waders on.



My favorite holster I own in a pancake style holster with a thumb break. It is holds the revolver high on my hip while controlling the weight of the gun so I don't even notice it on my hip. It is a 98% solution for me. Regrettably I don't appear to have ever taken a picture of the holster up close. This is the only picture I have of the holster at all, I like the picture but it does not help much here.



Von is a great guy to deal with and I highly suggest his work. If you are having a gun built by John or Dustin Linebaugh you can have him build the holster to fit your gun for a perfect fit. I did that on my Bisley Vaquero and it was a great thing to do while Dustin was tuning my gun. Oh and he has the best cartridge slide for the money of anyone out there I know of...

Fowler,

I can see by your dress that you are a cowboy.
