    GP100 OWB Holster Suggestions

    I believe I'm going to start carrying my .357 as a back up side arm when I'm hunting and I want to find a decent but inexpensive holster for it. Anyone have any suggestions on one or thoughts on what to stay away from?

    I'm hoping to keep it reasonable since its use will be limited, but I don't want to waste money on something poorly made either...

    I carried both a 4" and 3" GP100 at times in the past. For holsters of the OWB variety I had great success with both the Fobus paddle holster and the Bianchi AccuMold holster. For the environment you will be in I would recommend the Bianchi as it has a thumb strap and is made of tough ballistic type nylon. These are very ruggedly made holsters and will hold that six-gun safely in place, plus it offers excellent coverage to protect it from the elements as well. I looked on Midway and they have some in stock for around the $50 mark. I have listed the product number and description below so you can see an example of the AccuMold I am speaking of.

    For carry on hunting trips or any trips afield out in the weather I like the Universal Military Holster. Here's my own GP100 in the UM84R from Bianchi.

    I've got a 6" GP100 and love it. I've made a couple holsters for it and one for my brother w/ the same gun.
    I'll try to post a photo later tonite. Its a simple and very sturdy holster w/ a thumb break.
    IM me if you are interested in one. I enjoy making them for the GP.

    +1 for the Biachi accumold! For the type environment you are using it in, it is perfect. IMHO kydex is not ideal for hunting due to it being noisy going through the woods.

    I have a 4" GP100, and I like the Simply Rugged pancake holster quite a bit.

    I just sold my GP 100. Too darn big and heavy. Was the stainless model.

    I did, however, keep the holster. I bought it when I bought the pistol new. It is a longhorn safety holster model. And I think it would fit the bill perfectly for you. Mine is not for sale, btw.

    Id check out ebay for old longhorn holsters of the right size.

    I have the Bianchi 111 Cyclone Holster Amazon.com: Bianchi 111 Cyclone Holster Fits Ruger Gp100 4In Rev (Right Hand): Sports & Outdoors..

    You didn't specify the size barrel on your GP-100 but mine is 4". This holster is simply 'perfect'.. perfection comes around every now and then and although presumably mass produced by a well known purveyor of holsters it is extremely high quality and very, very well made and fits the gun like the proverbial glove. The belt slots are set up for strong-side carry and weak-side cross-draw.. $65 and worth it. I've found that I have never had want, need or desire to look for an alternative to this one I have which is rare for me as I don't believe I own another pistol that only has one holster option in my money-pit of a holster box..

    I carry mine in an old S&W holster that I've had nearly 40 yrs. They don't make it anymore ( I checked ).

    However, this is very close. 4-GP100-Holster-Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc.

    Made by Triple K and reasonably priced.

    I'm just here to find out what decent and inexpensive looks like. I might need some options while I'm waiting for my expensive long wait IWB holster for my WC GP 100.
    There is a solution but we are not Jedi... not yet.
