Just for fun, I recently got a .357 Ruger Vaquero. I've never owned a single-action, and am looking forward to mastering something new (or should I say 'old').
Now, it only seems appropriate that it be holstered in a western rig. I'm not planning on doing any SASS gigs, fast-draw, nor gun twirling. However, I do plan on becoming proficient in cocking while drawing, as well as all other aspects of marksmanship with it. I'd prefer a strong-side rig, and I think I'd prefer a drop-loop holster under the assumption that it will allow me to later incorporate 1911 holsters for the same belt as well?
I'm also thinking I prefer a low-slung rig (I have arms like an ape) and slight forward tilt (reverse cant) seems to make sense on this config. What other sorts of things should I be considering?
Any and all advice from the cowboys here is appreciated.
