I'm looking for practicality not pretty; it won't be for reenacting or CAS. I may use it for open carry occasionally and possibly for hunting backup.

i have the pietta 44. 12 inch barrel , i found a good holster for it that i liked ( uncle mikes ). got a thread cutter out of my wifes sewing kit and cut the belt mount loose and sewed it back on in a side/belly position to draw that massive barrel.....and it's comfortable and very practical.

I like the Uncle Mikes holsters for revolvers with adjustable sights. Many of the high end holsters will break the blade on your rear sight. I am not paying $100 plus for a holster with a lame retention system and no notch for the rear sight, especially when the holster is supposed to be custom made for my gun. I ride a 4 wheeler or a mule to my hunting places. My guns have never fallen out in an uncle mikes holster. I do have a custom leather holster that I had to take to a saddle shop to have a notch for sight cut into it and a decent retention strap riveted onto it. The first time I got on a mule that took off as soon as my butt hit the saddle my gun fell out of it.
