I've been wanting to get a holster for my S&W 64-3 38 special. I like the idea of carrying it because I can hit better with it than any other gun I have. I bought it new in 1980 ( I believe) and it was the only handgun I owned for years. I carry low recoil hydroshocks in it.
I had originally planned on going with the Hoffmans holster, but decided to go with leather with the option of IWB-OWB from Fist.
It took 5 weeks and 2 days to get the holster. The others Ive ordered from Fist took 7 weeks almost to the day. This one came in with such a strong odor ( like polish), I'm going to have to give it a few days to dry or people will be looking at me funny.
My first impression was "WOW this thing is huge !! The first photo shows it compared to my Fist holster for my XD40SC. What a difference in size.
I've wore it around the house to see how it feels and there really is a big difference in carrying this big heavy pistol compared to carrying my XD or my 642. OWB isn't really too bad but I dont know how its going to feel carrying all day. IWB, I can really feel it's there. Maybe with a heavier shirt tucked in it would'nt be so bad. More experimentation is needed for sure.
The holster carries it well , it's just the size of the gun and the weight. It actually doesn't print anymore than my XD does. I was surprised. The holster holds it really close to the body. But I can't see carrying this in the summer. We'll see.
Of course I'm very happy with the holster from Fist. I've loved every holster I've ordered from them.
