    Question Need help with not-so-popular gun holster

    I'm looking at a Taurus 617, stainless steel, 2"barrel revolver I can get an unreal deal for a NIB. The problem is I can't find a decent holster for this revo. By decent I mean I can find a few cruddy nylon OWB types from Cheaper Than Dirt, but not a quality leather holster. I'm open to any info you gun guru's can throw at me. As always thanks for the help.

    Product: Model 686 Plus Revolver - 2 1/2", 7-Shot

    If I can't find a holster I like for this model I may not buy it. And by the way I believe it's a copy of S&W 686Plus, other than a 1/2" barrel difference. If it is would a holster for the S&W work on this revo? If so that might be the loophole I'm looking for.

    "If you change that belief to 'I can handle it', you'll no longer experience FEAR. You'll simply see what you are facing is a challenge... an opportunity to test yourself.

    I own both the S&W 686+ and the Taurus 617. Below is a link to FIST holsters where you can get a good holster for your Taurus. Don't carry the Taurus in a holster made for the S&W....Not a proper fit.
