    4" barrel...

    I am considering purchasing a 4" revolver in .357mag. (S&W Mod. 60 or similar). With regards to a shoulder holster, would it be the considered opinion of most that I purchase a vertical holster for best concealment or would a horizontal holster be sufficient to avoid printing and recognition by others? I have a Galco system so it would just be the component I would need for that model gun.

    I don't think they make a model 60 in 4" I could be wrong.

    I think you'd have to go to a "K" frame for a 4" but very doable just the same. If a Pure Kustom wasn't available, I would opt for a Kramer Belt Scabbard with a forward cant myself.

    The Model 60 comes in 3 inch as does the SP100.
