    This may sound like an odd request coming from a holster maker, but hey, you don't think musicians only listen to their own music do you? ha ha.

    Anyway, I've got my eyes on a Ruger GP1000 5", a less common model. I'm interested in a nice full leather OWB for this gun, any suggestions?

    (Yes,I will make one for myself and give IWB a shot as well)

    Thanks!

    I carry a 4" N-frame in one, daily. Superb quality and very concealable.

    Thanks for the suggestion, I also found Simply Rugged holsters. Seems like a good option as well.

    I can't say from experience but the simply rugged look pretty good to me for the price. I keep thinking ill try one for my Taurus 66 6".

    You will also have to let us know how the iwb works for you. I've been thinking of trying that with the same gun just for s&g if I could find a holster.

    I recently ordered a Simply Rugged for a Model 19 in 4". I didn't have it punched or order the IWB straps so it's OWB only. The Model 19 belonged to my dad so it's pretty much priceless. The Simply Rugged is a fine piece of work for something this special to me. I'm tickled to death. And I'll be ordering another one with the IWB option for my 60. You get your money's worth.

    Jeff at Hays Holsters. He's a member here and his work is top notch. I have 7 or 8 holsters and they are all perfect.

    I had a Simply Rugged and wasn't impressed. Quality for the price didn't do it for me. That was 4 years ago so maybe they've gotten better.

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.
