Would also consider a kydex level 2. But have found nothing there at all.

Who carries a full size revolver OC and what do you carry it in.
Thank you for your help.

LT, as you well know, I have handled that Ruger of yours and admired it with a lustful eye. I think I have a solution for you...... send it to me, and let ME carry.....uhhhh.... I mean let me assume the burden of finding a good holster for it. :mrgreen:

Thank you sir. You know you are welcome to shoot it any time you come for a visit. You can even carry it while here. I will have to have it back before you leave. :tiphat:
Thank you for these sights. I am going there now.

LT, it has one belt loop on one side, and two on the other. Depending on which belt loop you use on the other side, it will be either cross draw or strong side draw. Here’s a picture of what the backside of it looks like:

In the picture, it is set up for cross draw. But if you ran the belt out that second belt loop, it would be set up for strong side draw.

Lobo seems to have established a pretty good reputation, although I don't have any personal experience.

I own an HF2 because of you LT! I always loved your holster and once I got to a point in my life where I could comfortably afford it, I got it. Now it's my BBQ rig holster for my 1911s.

I did not even find the HF2 on the new web page. I am going back to look again.
Checked again and since it is now Tucker and Bird it seems the HF2 has been dropped. The SST is the closest thing they have. It has no provision for a Thumb break.

Thank you for your confidence in a man long deceased. :tiphat:

When I had a 3" 686+, I purchased a Tucker and Byrd SST holster and they added a thumb break for a nominal fee. That was a great holster.
