    Rossi 462 need CCW holster IWB

    I am new to concealed carry (just got permit) was in state where you had to be shot 3 times than you could shoot(Exaggerating a little). I bought my first revolver Rossi 462 .357 Mag snub( 2 inch). Since my 45 is way to big to conceal this is going to be my concealed gun. What i need is a low cost (not cheap quality though) in waist band that works for a heavier set guy ( nice way of saying beer belly). please with links.

    If you are talking about the 462, I carry one. I carry inside the pocket. But any holster made for the Colt detective special will do or the Ruger 101.

    Perfect I just was looking for a holster for my new rossi 461.

    Since there aren't a lot of holsters made for the rossi's i was look for something close. J-frames are not quite right.

    I needed a smaller gun to carry in the summertime

    What about an SP 101 or Colt Det Spl. They are a hair bigger then the J frame.

    Yes I have a OWB made for the Colt Det. Spl and it fits my 462 like a glove.

    or a model 10 smith and wesson holster.I used a Desantis thumbbreak for mine..I used it between my belt and pants,for a kinda IWB/but not thing...ps..I'm a big guy too(read:fat)and this worked better than IWB for me.
    BTW these guns are under rated IMO.

    TonyB I am in the same boat. That is why I do not use a IWB. Yes the 461 and 462 are very under rated.

    Most K-frame holsters work well for the Rossi 461/2 revolvers since it is a 6 shot instead of 5 shot. So a K-frame 2" would work well for you.

    Thumbs up

    Very useful info, I love mine, owned it for 2 weeks already have 200 rounds through it. took a little bit to get used to sites but i love it now. i tested it double and single action, shot great.
    So be it, until victory is America's and there is no enemy, but peace!
