    Black Holster for S&W 686 4" needed, recommendations please.

    I read through a lot of past threads but didn't really find what I am looking for. I need a holster for my S&W 686 4" .357 and really prefer black. There have been a couple that I have found that looked quite nice but black was not offered as an option. Since it is a fairly large gun, I don't see IWB being practical so OWB is the way to go, although if I am mistaken by all means give me some feedback. I want something of higher quality and prefer all leather but I would possibly consider part Kydex. I also need a fairly severe cant, upwards of 25-35 degrees. Thanks.

    You may want to contact Dave at Littlebearholsters.com. Jim and Dave will treat you right.
    They make a quality leather holster that can be OWB or IWB or Between the pants and the belt(note: I have been wearing the BTPAB setup and it feels just like I had the holster IWB.)
    I have a tan leather holster with Dark sharkskin belt loops and trim, see avitar. This really fits nice and tight because I also bought their Dark sharkskin 1.5" belt. I have worn both for over a year and a half and both are like still in new condition.
    Sharkskin will provide for a long life as it is very tuff....

    Thanks to all 3 of you. Rocky, somehow I missed the specialty page when checking out your stuff originally so thanks for speaking up. Your Big Dog O.T.G. is looking like an extremely attractive option. Out of curiosity, have you had anyone get a Black Ops for a 4" barrel and if so, have you gotten any feedback on the possibility of IWB with it?

    You might consider IWB. I find revolvers surprisingly easier to conceal than semi autos. I don't have a IWB holster for my 686 so I don't have personal knowledge but the cylinder isn't all that much bigger than the J-frame I do carry IWB and it's the easiest gun I have to conceal.
