Trying a large revolver IWB
I've got an nylon clip on IWB holster I've been carrying my PT709 and XD40sc in for weeks with no problem. I've tried out my S&W snubs in it and they carry fine in it as well (a little deep, but the shape and cut-out on the grip actually make it easily accesible and cover the trigger guard).
I've been getting the itch to carry my Ruger Police Service Six .357 Magnum. I have a leather OWB holster for the gun, but really don't want to OC it. I am going to try this weekend carrying my large frame Ruger PSS with 4 inch barrel in this IWB holster.
Interestingly enough, it rides low in it, but that gives the clip the low area behind the cylinder to ride in. It also completely covers the trigger guard. The barrel sticks out of the open end about 2 inches, but since it will be IWB, does that really matter? The hammer will ride a little over an inch below the top edge of the top opening, but the hammer does not catch at all. The shape and cut of the grip opening allows access to virtually the entire wooden grip.
Pics attached. Any thoughts on this experiment? Since I rarely carry this gun on my person, I thought I'd give IWB a try. If it works out ok, I'll look into investing in a good IWB holster that fits this weapon. If it doesn't work out well at all, no sense in spending a lot of money for something I won't utilize much. Any thoughts from others who have carried large frame revolvers IWB? At this point in a snow covered bitterly cold winter, I'm doing good to get myself inside my waisteband.
