    The New York "Badger" Reload Holster - NEW!

    As you all know, Rhome finally returned from the Philippines and is back making holsters. He asked me to try his new backup holster, and I am in love! I wore it all day, and truly forgot I had it on.

    As I am fairly new to the shooting sports, How exactly does the magazine fit into that revolver?

    The mag fits very nicely in the Kimber Ultra Carry that I carry on the other side! If I run out of ammo for the Kimber, I have 5 rounds of .38+P. I usually pocket carry the 642, but this is fast and really comfortable. And yes, the 642 can be drawn with the mag in place!

    That's a cool idea. I recently stopped carrying a BUG but if I went back I think that might be a pretty good way to go.

    I did think that the revolver could be a BUG and should have gone with that. They do say howver that there is no such thing as a stupid question. Right??

    I was so excited about the holster that I gave a very brief (read lousy) description; it was not a stupid question!

    Just laying that holster on the table could confuse quite a few individuals...

    Am I correct in assuming that this setup is for left (weak) side of a person whose strong side in on the right? (has to be)

    Absolutely correct! I think that one of our members, who is also a Sheriff's Lieutenant, came up with the design. I just need one for each type of mag for different carry guns now! This could get expensive...

    Nice holster.

    I prefer to carry a small .380 auto in my strong side front pocket as a BUG.

    Even if I don't carry my primary I still have a firearm on my strong side ready to go.

    Hello everyone, I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while as I've been busy building holsters for our local law enforcement officers. Anyway the holster Swiftyjuan is showing you is the New York Reload designed as Swifty said by my friend a Lieutenant on our Sheriff's dept. It is designed to be worn on the weak side as it carries 1 reload for your primary gun and your bug. It is becoming popular here with our Law Enforcement community. It will also be designed to carry other style bugs. Ok enough of a break for me, back to the shop I go ! I hope to talk to you later, if you have any questions just give me a call, but Swifty is our P.R. man, and doing a fine job if I do say so. Bye all

    Best,
    Rhome

    For a second it got me too. The key word was "backup".
