I got a Gould&Goodrich B733-62 3 slot pancake holster for my 605 and it works pretty good. It was tight at first but I follow mfg suggestion of using silicon on inside of holster and letting dry overnight then putting my revolver in and leaving it for a couple of days.

I went out today wearing it and unholster and reholster the gun a few times before leaving the house and it works great. I like the thumbbreak especially where they put a metal strip on the back strap where your thumb easily unsnap it.

thanks

I shoot the heck out of my 605 and want to carry it but haven't been able to find a good holster. All I've been able to find is the Fobus, but it sticks out too much.
Will this work for cross draw? I want a cross draw for when I ride my bicycle.

Welcome to the forum. BTW, smart move. IMHO, friends don't let friends carry...Fobus holsters! :biggrin2:

The only thing I don't like about my Fobus paddle holster is that it isn't very concealable. The gun sticks out too much. Even with a baggy shirt or coat.

My 605 lives in a Galco SM100. I like it because it's a deep carry - nothing but the grip is exposed, and my Smiths fit also. After 12 years of carry, it's getting loose enough to justify a replacement of the exact same holster.

Thanks. That's another option. I wonder if there are more?
Do you have a specific model, or a picture of that holster? I googled the SM100 and it said they discontinued that model.

That's going to be my Christmas present. I like xdraw. I feel like the gun is more protected that way. Like a halfback carrying a football. They don't carry the ball on the hip.
Too many cops are shot with their own gun. Plus, I need to carry on the bicycle. I've seen small semi-autos on other bikers. I don't want people to see my gun.

IMHO, you are full of "entertaining hyperbole". Folks have carried (countless) handguns "on the hip" for beyond a couple of...centuries. (Since before halfbacks were invented). And, since the vast majority of LEO handguns are carried in +Level 3 retention holsters, when's the last (documented) time a "cop" was shot "with their own gun"? Use any holster that suits you. Yet, IMHO, you're really stretching your imagination for...justification. :biggrin2:

With the gun on my hip I feel like someone could come up behind me, push me into a car or wall, and steal my gun. A woman I work with was accosted that way, but they only took her purse. Criminals aren't usually going to challenge you head on. They are sneaky.
If you watch cops, when they get in close proximity to a crowd, the inside of their elbow comes to rest on the butt of their gun. They maintain contact with the gun.
I realize that with xdraw, someone could grab your gun from the front, but I would have two hands to fight them off, and hopefully they wouldn't even know I'm carrying in the first place.
(I'll try to keep the entertaining hyperbole to an acceptable level.):wink:

I carried cross-draw until a U.S. Marshall friend SAW that I was. Do NOT carry a cross draw defensive handgun unless the holster has manual retention. I had a Ruger Security Six 4" in an (old, unsnapped) Bianchi Cyclone at 11 o'clock. My (very experienced) LEO buddy just walked-up and mildly bumped into me. He then excused his "clumsy" act & asked to see my revolver. I reached down & discovered my holster was EMPTY. Grinning like a 'possum eating briars, he had MY Ruger in HIS right hand!
. The above is an old story that I told years ago ("SEARCH" is your friend). It pretty-well sums-up my opinion on crossdraw holsters. Your results...may vary. :bier:

When in Rome..............
After reading what you guys have said I think I'm going with the holster in the OP. Instead of cross draw I will continue to carry my Colt Pocket lite in a pocket holster when I'm on my bicycle. I just won't carry the 605 on the bike.
