My, what nice leather you have...............

It's been a very long wait for those of us who live in Wisconsin to get a Concealed Carry provision recognized as law. My first opportunity to carry presented a myriad of options concerning carry. I took my time and wanted, like everyone else, to avoid the dreaded "holster drawer". There are a lot of fine holster makers represented here, and having no desire to slight anyone, I went with Mitch Rosen as the source of my first leather. I carry three S&W revolvers....a 2.5" 66, a 2" 64, and if it works out (just got the holsters this afternoon....), a 2.5" 686. Despite the difference between the K and L Frame, I may be able to carry the 686 in the same rig. These Flash photos with a P&S camera don't begin to capture the deep, rich coloring of the holsters and belt, but better pics may be submitted in daylight. The quality is obvious....The box from Mitch made my day....Sandpiper
VERY nice! Bet there was a nice aroma from that box when you opened it up!
I know Kydex and similar materials have their place, but good-lookin' guns like these just deserve good leather. You've chosen well!

As much as I like your choice of holsters, I'm even more impressed with your choice of guns. Outstanding!!!!!!!!!!!
Beautiful choice - enjoy!
Like both the guns and holsters... Good choice.

I thank you and Mitch Rosen thanks you...Yes, the small of leather is so good that my Wife just walked into the Den and told me how great it smelled in here...:) Is it wrong to cover your nose with a holster and walk around the house? Sandpiper
OK, that didn't take long.....The IWB ARG is now available in the Classifieds...One try, one fail...at least it won't go in my non-existant holster drawer....:) Sandpiper
Really nice I love rosen, milt sparks you cant beat good leather. If you want to see something special I mean more of a work of art even tho they are great holsters look at hayesleather I have the patriot OWB For my SP101 2.4
my 2.5" 66 is carried in a brown Kramer horsehide Vertical Scabbard. it's good looking, i think, but not as stunning as your Rosen gear. nice going!
too bad about the ARG. i have a Galco NSA of similar design for my Sig P-229 which works fine for me. did you use this IWB with pants 2" larger in waistband size, like i do? if you didn't i would expect that it would be uncomfortable.
It's not the holster guys...It's me being way too big for my pants. I did indeed order an extra two inches on the belt, but when you're 25 lbs overweight, it just isn't possible with pants that are too tight. When I buy bigger pants than I've worn for 40 years, I feel like a Clown in them. It's easier to sell a fine holster than to shed 25 lbs....I envy anyone who can wear IWB, but it's tough to be old and undisciplined. Choosing to carry a revolver complicates matters even more. I wasn't unteachable, it's just that there were better choices, and now I'm in it. On the other hand, the Rosen 5JR OWB is perfect for me, I just wish I hadn't had to loose a belt loop on my pants to locate it where it hides best. That's another issue, but a minor one....Apparently there's not much perfection here...if it wasn't a struggle, there wouldn't be "holster drawers"...I'm still resisting...:) Sandpiper
...I think you need to be more consistent in your revolvers so you don't get confused...keep the ones with adjustable sights and ship that bobbed M64 to my local FFL...I've been looking for one for about 10 years that nice...settled on a SP101 DAO till I can find one...it's a dream of a gun...how long have you had it??? I've got a pair of Compacs in the drawer just waiting till I find one!!!
Hi Snubb 44......I've had it for a few years, but decided to have it done over for my Wife last Fall. She'll never carry...I did it after she admitted she sensed a need to become an active part of out SD plan. The thought did occur to me that I might end up carrying it at some point...:) They truly are nice little guns...Model 10's too...just need to be more careful in wiping them down......Sandpiper
...I'm looking at a clean M10 at my local shop...$500 but it wouldn't last a week in summer...sweat while working till I'm soaking most days...I'll keep looking till I find a 64...you've got a nice herd, there!!!
