    Wink Need a holster for THIS monster (460XVR)

    I went and got this thing simply because I've always wanted a handgun capable of bringing down truly big game or large dangerous predators. Don't plan on shooting it a lot, but want it there IF I ever need it. I'd like a hip or shoulder holster for sporting rather than concealment. Any suggestions on how to keep my pants around my waist. for example? Note that I got the silly little nylon holster with the rest of the gear in the case, but I don't take that very seriously. I do like the Galco offering for this gun, though. Any other suggestions?

    I don't have any experience with the holster but it appears Simply Rugged make a couple.

    Probably will order one myself for my 460 at some point.

    Would be curious to know how it works out if you order one.

    I though you were supposed to put wheels on it and pull it around with a HMMWV...

    Lot's of good leather available. Off the top of my head I know Tucker, Fist and Galco all fit the X frames.

    A holster by Simply Rugged and some good suspenders should work well.

    Not FIST. I checked them out & the website mentions J, K, L, N frames but no "X." Oops!

    Dang!! Thats a lot of pistol for Florida!!! Is it for rogue Grizzlies trying to steal your Salmon?
    I agree with the Galco option, they make really good OWB holsters.

    Actually as I told my wife with a semi straight face, it's for the rampaging polar bear or Everglades Bigfoot at the mall -- UNLIKELY, but it COULD happen!

    More realistically, we like to vacation with our Newfoundland dogs and I'd hate to meet a bigger critter than they with eyes on them as food & a 9mm in my hand! We're seriously considering a move to Idaho (Boise) for our retirement.

    My Big Foot scenario is backed up by an unusual reference: US Special Forces.... BFRO Report 6486: Special Forces team follows bipedal trackway, gets screamed at

    Okay... seriously, maybe Galco?

    Well, Now that I think about it..... I guess it's possible if not probable to see a Everglades Bigfoot running around a mall down there, my ex-mother-in-law moved to Florida a while back..

    Enjoy that pistol, you might need it in Idaho

    I know Fist has them for the 500 - I would think they would be the same fit.
