Hard to find leather for this puppy. Seems like everybody's got leather for autos but not much out there for revolvers. Also the Bulldog 44 was off the market for awhile and fell by the wayside in priority, I guess. Anybody got a link to a decent maker that won't eat my wallet for lunch? Del Fatti seemed to have some interesting examples, but that was all I could find. I'm not interested in IWB or Kydex for this, either. :tired:

Number 51 does look good. Do ya think any of our resident leathermen might make one for us? Any of you guys got any patterns?

You know, I actually like the look of that Del Fatti #51 for the Bulldog. I did look at Milt Sparks and they look okay although I do like the del fatti forward belt slot that the Sparks didn't seem to feature.

Del Fatti...

Ex - sorry to run on with another post - found this place that says they make for the Bulldog:
bulldog holster
They are sure proud of it though.
I knew I recognized that site. They're the ones who produced that New York Reload double holster for the movie FACEOFF :comeandgetsome: with Nicholas Cage and John Travolta.

However I do like the model they call the Half Breed for the Bulldog....but I think I like the Del Fatti #51 even better.:hand5:

It does seem like that it would set the gun at a good comfortable angle.

I know you're a big fan of Sam Andrew's holsters, too. I have a Charter Bulldog .44. If he would agree to make a holster for you (and others) for the Bulldog, I'd certainly be willing to let him borrow mine. I'll see him next weekend (April 15/16) at a local gun show, so I could get the gun to him at that time. Contact him and see what he says, and then let me know if I can help in that way.

Hey K-Man, Do you make on for the bulldog? From what I've seen you do great work.

Bulldog Speedloaders

Well I don't yet even have the gun (have to wait until summer) so it's a little bit early for speedloaders but I was thinking I recently saw a set of rubber speedloaders that can be secured to your finger with a loop on the device and even inserted that way. The dump into the cylinder is accomplished via a shearing action away from the cylinder. THAT sounds pretty cool to me!:wave:

Okaaaaaay? Can't picture the loader. Do you have a web site for them. Also am talking to K-Man about a holster. We'll see what we come up with.

Ex is referring to the Maxfire Speedloaders. They are available from Dillon and others for about $5 each.

IMHO, they are o.k. for range use, but not good for serious work. It is not all that easy to peel them off and fumbles are possible. For me, at least, it is very slow.

Pretty nice of K-Man to offer his Bulldog to another holster-maker though...

K-Man said he could build me a holster for my Bulldog using the Eagle Defender style. That sounds like what I'm looking for. Have got to get with him on some finalities but I think that is the way I' go.

I love Matt's holsters and have a couple. They are well worth the money and the wait. However, I would certainly not describe them as "off the rack" or inexpensive. And, unless you have stumbled onto a used one or something, I believe Matt is currently building holsters from orders from November 2004 -- he keeps a running update on this website.

Hey Ex,
I just wanted to post this regarding Del Fatti and time. I ordered a holster from him last March. As Duane said he is currently on November of 2004, so I have 4 months of holsters to be built in front of mine. From what I have seen it will be worth the wait, but if you want it quickly then you might have to get it elsewhere. Just wanted to give you a heads up on wait time.

Yeah...even though I haven't even bought the gun yet I think I'm going with a Milt Sparks anyway.
