Hi

I'm new here and as like a lot of newbies have to start right off with a question - sorry. Does anyone know of a good inexpensive concealed in belt holster for a Taurus 357 Mag 4" barrel revolver? Just moved to Texas from New York and always used a shoulder holster in NY but I know the temps are alot warmer here in Texas and wearing a second shirt or jacket will not be the way to go as the temps warm.

I have seen quite a few concealed in belt holsters online but none of the ones I have seen have pictures or say that they are for a "revolver".

Thanks for any help

Look at galco and crossbreed. They have charts for different weapons. If you want cheap check out elite survival systems. I carry my LC9 in one of their iwb holsters. Its secure enough I could jog with the gun on my belt. However I always wear an undershirt or the slide digs into my skin.

Btw I would recommend spending $50 or up on a holster if you know this will be your EDC. Comfort is a bug factor and there's no denying crossbreed and galco are some of the most comfortable holsters.

Alright that was a great help - I downloaded the chart. It only listed one in belt which would be a size 3 for my revolver
at elite Survival but it does not have a strap to go over the trigger. I feel much more sucure with a strap to hold the gun.
I will check out the other palces and see what they have. You are right about the comfort thing when wearing for hours.

This is the one that will work http://www.elitesurvival.com/concealment-holsters/inside-the-waistband-clip-holster-iwb/
if I can just find it with a strap or trigger

Rael; You might want to check with Mernickle Custom Holsters, on the web. They will work with you, have a beautiful product, fair prices and a good turn around time. I have a crossdraw holster for my S&W9VE, custom belt and a double magizine pouch, for my 2 double stack spare mags.:)

Still not having a lot of luck finding the exact IWB I need for my gun. I am not sure of the model, but it is a Taurus 357 and on the barrel all it says is 357 MAG with no model number. It is a 6 shot revolver. Not sure where you measure the barrel from to tell is it is classified a 3" or a 4"

Here is a picture of the gun I found on the net



Elite Survival had an IWB that would work but when I purchase they sent
an email saying it was back ordered for 8 weeks so I canceled

Any help would be great

Even if someone could tell me the model or frame ot this gun would be a help

Not many people would carry that gun IWB. You would be better served by a 3 slot pancake holster. When you buy a holster for a revolver you can simply go by barrel length. Personally, in TX I would try to find a snubbie you can pocket carry. I have a 70's model charter that works real well for summer carry. If you buy a charter find and old one, they don't make em like they used to.

Thanks

I plan on buying a different piece but just moved here two weeks ago
and towed my boat behind moving truck so the next pruchase will be another truck. Have one in mind and should be doing that in a week or so
and then will look into something a bit easier to conceal

Thanks

from the picture, it looks like a 3". Measuring from the barrel tip to the wheel is close enough. There is that space between the two parts. Im not sure what thats called, but I think thats part of the frame. You should be able to round toward the most accurate length for your holster.
