    my grandpaws .38

    my grandpaw left me his old Rohm 63 .38spc and a old cowboy carry rig that has mostly rotted away over the years and is not usable.I decided to see what i could do with it, the holster it's self is in decent shape so I took the rig apart and mounted it on an extra Blackhawk serpa paddle and put a little forward cant on it. I still need to make a retention strap of some kind and I'm going to trim out the trigger slot some to seat the pistol about a half inch deeper into the holster. i will post some more shots of it as i play with it,and before y'all start about the exposed trigger and the crappy quality of the rohm this is just kind of a tribute and a way to remember my grandpaw and just shoot his gun every now and then, there is a lot of memories in this old pistol for me, I was about five the first time pappa took me out and let me shoot it and me and it have killed a few truck loads of cans and bottles and paper targets over the last 35 years

    Hey, nice job. Personally I would not worry about the pistol setting down lower. For retention you can use a leather lanyard as a tie down. Punch a couple of holes and weave a string of leather through the holes.
