    i have a 4 inch barrel ruger service six, i am going to get my permit soon and untill i can get a smaller gun the ruger will be my carry gun. i have tried to check online but i can't figure anything out with all the models of holsters. i can't afford a lot of money but don't want something that will break in a few times carrying either. i saw a uncle mikes in the waist band holster size 2 for $12-$16 on ebay as the cheapest that look made well. how about some others that ya'll use?, thanks for any help.

    Take a look at Alien Gear holsters. Just do a search online. They have a life time warranty on there holsters. They are reasonable price too.

    I would recommend an IWB clip on, I have so many holsters I have tried, the only ones that stood test of time were the clip ons, easy on, easy off. The ones you have to thread your belt through are a PITA.

    i have found some iwb holsters on ebay, they are american made, leather, steel clip and with lifetime warranty. however they told me that they make they're holsters for modern guns only and the service six isn't on they're list. they have holsters for gp100, one for sp101 then they have s&w k frame holster and a s&w l frame holster. then a taurus 65 and 66 holster then taurus tracker. and a rossi 971. which would be closer to my gun? it's got me puzzled, this is my first looking for these holsters as i normally just open carry. thanks for any help

    This is just my opinion. I am sure there are exceptions. By and large DeSantis holsters are the best value for the money.

    Really, you are over thinking your holster selection. If you have love handles carrying IWB isn't going to be fun unless you are prepared to appendix carry. I have a box full of leather holsters I put a lot of thought into buying. Each purchase was attempt to carry a gun in a way that my body isn't built to do. I finally wised up and realized I have two choices when I carry a gun. I can either wear a paddle holster and dress around it or I can put the gun in my pocket. There is a third choice appendix carry IWB. I don't like the idea of a gun pointing at my junk and the gun really spoils the mood when my wife is frisky.

    Here is my G19 in a Desantis Pocket Tuk. The G19 is close to the same length as your security six. The pocket tuk also has a clip for IWB carry. For $15 the Pocket Tuk is a very versatile holster. The soft Tuk similar to the pocket Tuk but it is a little more compact.

    Pass on uncle mikes. So far my favorite holster is the safari land 5181-09. I use it for edc of a 4" ruger police service six.
