    Revolver pancake holster question

    Simple question... I am having a pancake holster made for my 29-3. The leather smith asked me if I wanted the trigger covered or not... I never have a trigger cover for my OWB belt holsters but being that I never CCW a larger revolver before. I would like the trigger exposed and no thumb break. Should I have any concerns if I order it that way?

    All comments are appreciated
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    Having your trigger exposed without the benefit of a retaining strap or thumb break holding the hammer in place just presents an unnecessary risk IMO. What is your reason for wanting the trigger exposed?

    I can't recall seeing an exposed trigger guard on a modern day revolver holster. Personally, I wouldn't do it...not very safe.

    Here's an old one with exposed trigger. Safe enough as long as the retaining strap is fastened. Not the pancake type the OP wants however. This was for sale on ebay. An old Bucheimer.

    According to the maker he said the revolver is canted forward and sits up higher than smaller frame revolvers. There is no retaining strap but the hammer sits below the leather line. It is molded leather so that is why there is no retaining strap.

    I would have the holster made so that the trigger guard is covered. OMO, YMMV.

    Just wanted to update.

    I got the holster and found that the mold was for a 629 with vally rear sight. I have an adjustable sight on my 29... I modified it a bit to allow the rear sight to be open.

    I also got the trigger covered. It had the added benefit of giving the holster some extra material so its win win.

    heres some pics.
