    New Exotic OWB for S&W 642 - With Gator Inlay!!!!

    Hello All,

    I recently got a new holster for my wife for her S&W 642 (she affectionately refers to it as "pinky"). I thought if she wouldnt wear it or like it, I would use it to carry the little guy with the black grips! It is brown leather with Gator inlay...it looks black because my camera stinks! We have broken it in via the baggy trick AND my wife doesnt have a gunbelt yet so I had her throw on one of my old brown belts so we could take pics.

    I have worn it around the house on my gunbelt and it just carries awesomely. GREAT retention too, but not so snug that you cannot remove the gun. I got it from Julian who many of you already know....his email is bigosholsteremporium@gmail.com and he really is a great guy to deal with. I also got a Kahr PM9 OWB from him and it too rocks. Here are some pics:

    Business end:


    And a couple of her throwing it on for pics...yes, I know....a crappy belt...just for pics!:

    Funny you say that...she has run just about 700 rounds through it...and mostly VERY DIRTY wadcutters....and this last time I was so tired of seeing the black smudges that I gave it a REALLY good cleaning!

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    P.S. I think she needs a nice pair of gator boots to go with that.

    Let's not give her any ideas!!!!

    Yes, it fits very comfortably at the belt midpoint and tucks in just like it should, yet it is very easy to access the grip for a firm pull......very well done Julian.

    Very nice. Gator belt to go with the boots.
