Holster Help Needed
I just got my Christmas present to myself, a Taurus 415 .41 mag snubby. Great gun.
Problem is, I'm having difficulty finding a good holster for it. I have a bunch of Milt Sparks holsters, and they are first-freakin' rate pieces of gunleather.
So I called them today to order PMK, and they told me that they don't have a mold for a 415. The closest thing they've got it for the Taurus 450.
I did some looking and discovered that the 450 is 1/2 of one inch shorter than my 451, but other than that, it is pretty much the same gun.
Since Sparks is closed at this hour, I didn't call them back, but I will in the morning to see if they are willing to try to figure out how to deal with that extra half inch. They may not be, and if not, I am good with that. They didn't get the reputation they enjoy by jerry-rigging holsters.
Other holsters that would then come into consideration are the "No Bull Scabbard" by Wild Bill's and the Del Fatti SSR and Del Fatti LP-QS.
Anyone have any suggestions or comments regarding either their experiences with ANY of these four holsters, or Sparks's willingness to diddle a little bit when making a holster?
Holster makers (and I know there are a LOT you who visit this board), please chime in as to any of your products that might also fit the bill (pancake-[I]ish] strong side revolver holsters).
A little cant is probably a good idea and horsehide would be great. I don't know that I prefer high or low ride, as I just don't know that much about the revolver holster game.
Talk to me, oh wiser ones!

You might take a look at www.andrewsleather.com and see if you like anything there. If so give Sam a call. Great guy to deal with but I'll warn you like most top craftsman he has a waiting list!

Have you checked with Kevin at K&D? An Eagle Defender might be just what you're looking for if he's got a mould for that gun.

Jack - best as I recall - that gun is not on Kevin's list of availables.
