    Ruger SP101 meets Mr. Softy

    I bought a Mr. Softy for my Ruger SP101. I was hesitant, at first, because I read a lot from people who said that the Mr. Softy rode a bit low for a good grip.

    But azchevy highly recommended it, saying that it provided for a good grip, and he had the videos to back it up.

    So here it is. And it rides just right

    For autos, that would probably provide a much lower grip. Revolvers are very forgiving on grip.

    I. Love my Mr Softy for my Glock 26 because it rides low. The thing I didn't like about the one for my J frame was that it road a little high for my comfort. I wish the could be ordered at different heights. I recommend them to everyone. For the money,quality,quick excellent service they are hard to beat.

    I carry mine IWB in a soft nylon type that is actually a little too big for it, but it rides low and actually works better than the one made for it. In mine, the front strap rides just on top of the belt making concealability in a t-shirt and shorts super easy. It's stealthy concealable at that level.

    That looks like a great ride height, I had a don hume IWB years ago for an sp101 and it rode so high I thought the entire gun might flip over my belt one day.

    How hard is the hammer on you? I really don't want the cheese grater of hammer on my SP101 touching me or my clothes.

    dis-assemble the revolver and take a fine file and some finishing paper (600g works well) to those sharp edges and points on the cheese grater. Saves all those skinned body parts and wear points on the shirts. Been there, done that.

    There was some discomfort with a bit of hammer bite, at first, but I experimented and found a position that eliminated that. Surprisingly, it was only a minimal adjustment, probably measured in hundredths of an inch.

    High Noon doesn't make holsters for the Ruger SP101 in 3". That said, let me give a few words in favor of High Noon. I have really pushed Fist holsters, and they will always be 'top notch' in my book. I have always thought of High Noon as a holster company that sort of made a one holster fits lots of gun types. My mistake...I got a holster for my Glock-26 from High Noon along with a belt to match...WOW!
    When I received the Side Guard, I was more than pleasantly surprised...I was shocked at the quality of both the holster and the matching belt. The belt is BY FAR, better than ANY leather belt that I've ever tried.
    High Noon does make some quality leather goods.
