    Rosie's Winter Ride

    My wife named the new S&W Model 36 "Rosie" when she saw those rosewood grips.

    I normally carry Rosie when wearing Dockers and shirt without any other cover garment, tucked in a Mika's pocket holster.

    This winter, when wearing a coat and running errands where I won't be removing it, I've found Rosie easy to take along--a Kramer MSP Paddle is easy to slip on, as is a speedstrip in Simply Rugged's "Most Versatile Ammo Pouch".

    Very nice. Thanks for sharing the info, considering a Smith 442 as a smaller alternative to the .45 XD.

    Very nice... I just ordered Kramer MSPs (and one "Woman's Paddle") for some people who work doing investigations an protection - what are your opinions of the rig?
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    That appears to hold in nice and snug - nice

    For one horror stricken moment I thought the subject matter was much less palletable LOL!

    ROSIE

    Call it Rosie if you want as long as the last name isn't O Donald. Just kidding I' got a model 36 too but havn't named her yet. I like the holster and gun combo. It looks good and rides high.

    That Looks Very Comfortable...

    and named, 'Rosie' (after O'Donald) fits...because she does 'shoot' her mouth off a lot...

    I'm very happy with it, holds snug to the body and is even more comfortable than any other paddle I've worn. It does have a removable "safety strap" that loops around the belt and snaps, assuring that you never draw the holster with the gun (I don't use it).

    You realize, of course, that the MSP stands for Michigan State Police. Their detectives still use it, even UC folks, with Sigs. That speaks highly of it's concealability.

    I got the horsehide, which I'm told is not as comfy as the cowhide, since the horsehide's paddle is reinforced with plastic, and the cowhide version's paddle is all leather.

    In short, I think you made a wise purchase and the folks they're issued to should be pleased.

    Thanks, JimmyC. I've talked to a few other folks and they all seem happy with the holster.

    My issue paddle holster is the SafariLand 560-54 (very similar to this: http://www.safariland.com/products.asp?id=348), and it is a good holster, but sticks out a bit farther from the body then I'd like. Of course, deep concealment isn't usually a concern when I'm wearing it, as I have a jacket (and badge) to cover it, but I'm very interested to see if the MSP offers the same performance levels in an easier to conceal package. Thanks again for your input!

    My first thought when I read your topic was this was about Rosie, "It my spoons fault that I'm fat." O'Donnel.

    Nice set up.

    You know, that is probably the same wheelgun that Rosie's armed body guards carry! (Hypocritical B@%CH!!!!)

    All kidding aside that sure is "purdey"!

    Nice gun, but the name does carry a certain disdainful connotation.
