the more I shoot it the better like it. Loaded with Rem GS 185 gr jhp and it works fine.

I feel the same way. Handy size, reliable, accurate, and for a big bore the recoil is not bad at all. It's carried more off duty than any other pistol I own.

Be honest, fair, and always prepared...

Yep,I love mine. I too, use GS 185. Iíve got to make a correction about mine. I said I put a Talon grip on mine(like skateboard tape) but after getting moved and finally getting it back out of the safe, I found it was my .40 that had the Talon grip as the .45 doues have a very aggressive grip already. Sorry for the confusion.

Like you, I am partial to a good leather holster, but it's hard to find many desired holsters today. So many sizes and shapes and configurations of semi-autos offered that there seems to be a shortage of holsters specifically designed for them. Thanks to age, crappy health, and impaired mobility and loss of strength and grip, I couldn't work the slides on most of my semi-autos, so over the past year I have sold them. I had a good leather holster for my .45 Shield, but when I sold it, I let the holster go with it. I don't remember the brand.

I'm trying to find a proper-fit holster designed for my Ruger 3" LCRx .357 and also a decent belt holster form my Smith & Wesson SW22 .22 LR. Also a good belt holster for a full-size Ruger Security 9. I have an open-top concealment holster for my Security 9 Compact, but want a good leather belt holster for the others.

Best of luck finding something good in leather.

Yes, I too have my semi-autos, but folks need to credit the serious versatility of a good revolver with a serviceable load.

840, I have a 3" also and when I carry it I use a Simply Rugged holster. I will say it seems to be a big piece of leather but it is very well made I like it.
I just checked the Ruger site and it had a Mitch Roson made holster for the 3" for 74.00 the S.R. is 60.00 bucks, money is a factor for me. The M.R. did look somewhat smaller overall, for what that's worth.

Russ, I appreciate the reply. I have to watch my spending budget as well and the SR Holster site has two or three holsters that I've been looking for at a reasonable price. A good looking product in my favorite holster material ... LEATHER! Time to do some Christmas shopping for myself.
