    Yaqui ?

    I am thinking of getting a Yaqui slide for my SP101 from El Paso Saddlery. I have used Yaquis with 1911s and SIGs and liked them but I have never tried one with a revolver.
    Anybody use one with their revolvers and do you like it?

    Don't like Yaqui slides

    I bought a Galco Yaqui slide a long time ago for a 1911 and didn't like it because it doesn't pull the gun tight against your body. The design of the Yaqui is not very good, in my opinion.

    Another Galco belt slide holster called the JAK slide works much better, as the belt goes over the gun and pulls the gun very tight against your body. I have a couple of JAK slides and have used them frequently. Here is what it looks like, from the Galco website:

    I am not really concerned about concealment with this holster. Mostly range and open carry sometimes. Occasionally I like the offset that a Yaqui slide offers. I just haven't tried one with a revolver.

    I use Yaqui Slides but never with a short barrel weapon. Just not for me. I personally prefer a Kirkpatrick Texas Yaqui Slide. It dosent need adjustable screws as it is fit tightly by molding. Otherwise I find them very comfortable but just a little less concealable than a belt holster and much more than a in the pants holster. However I do use and have used them frequently compitition.

    So the Yaqui is the perfect holster for fat boys like me? I absolutely DESPISE IWB holsters, pancake holsters are...mmm...ok...but I'm looking for something that doesn't gouge me in the side and something that's not up under my armpit.

    Hey if the late Col Cooper made it his standard holster, thats saying something. The only holster I ever saw him use actually (in life and photos) but I'm sure he had others.

    Now with that said, it dosent work well with shorter barrel lengths, as the butt of your weapon tends to flop.

    So it's a no-go for a Glock 23, huh?

    I've carried my 19 in one and it works ok, but it dosent work so well with my Sig 228/229s.

    Only one word of warning when using a Yaqui and one caution. Warning.....becareful sitting down, you can push the muzzle up and loosed it in your holster. Caution.....if you wear Wrangler Cowboy Cut Jeans (aka 13MWZ series) the brass rivit on the theigh will rub the inside of your barrel.

    Thanks!

    The idea that that much of my gun is left "unprotected" from daily bumps & bangs bothers me. That and if my cover garment should lift a bit in public and instead of seeing a piece of leather someone would see a gun barrel instead kinda concerns me too.
    I'm a child of the 60's, but I got over it.

    Claremore? As in "Claremore, Oklahoma?" I was born in Claremore, Oklahoma! I grew up in the J.M. Davis Gun Museum! It was my dad's home away from home!
