This is a holster of unknown manufacture & is simply marked with the number 17. It's a well made holster
pictured with the Ruger BH 7 1/2" 357 Mag.

Anyone with a holster of unknown manufacture you consider a great holster?

No unknowns for me. I have Simply Ruggeds, Tuckers, High Noons, Bianchis, a J.W. O'Rourke, and an AlienGear kydex.

Actually I'm glad to see that there are some folks who still prefer leather rigs. The ballistic nylon stuff and hard molded plastic things just ain't natural to this old man. All my single actions ride in all leather single loop holsters with corresponding caliber loops in back for ammo. Think John Wayne's rig and you're close. And as stated earlier, my DA .38Spl S&W rides in a Jordan Border Patrol holster on a Sam Brown belt.

I have a couple of those nylon things but they don't get used. Keep them around for visitors and such but I don't use em.

Yeah, Lynn it's a foregone conclusion that guys like us do grow on trees. Good old American Oak! Lookin' good brother!

I like leather but will use nylon at times when things are
really wet. I've not tried any of the molded plastic.

I don't have any holsters for my single actions, but my double actions only saw leather.

I don't have any "unknown" makes, but my favorites are all made by 'JRL Leather'. He was a local master craftsman and made them exactly the way I wanted them. Just like grips, I was never happy with a holster I ordered out of a catalog or on-line.

I do have one plastic holster for a plastic gun. I'd never put a quality firearm in one.

I've had nothing but great results from John Bianchi when
he was living & the same with Rob Leahy & Simply Rugged.
But on the other hand, never had a custom made holster.

All but one of my holsters are leather. That said, the one Kydex IWB holster I have works extremely well in that application.

The main thing, it works.

I have holsters from Bianchi, Safariland, S&W, El Paso Saddlery and etc. I've never had any complaints about quality as they were all very well made. I guess it's like buying a suit off the rack at a discount store and having one tailor made in Italy, although I've never been that picky about suits...

I am to the point where belts or suspenders no longer
work (medical reasons) so it shoulder holster and I
like the old G.I. ones which works with a host of guns
(and I am very familiar with it) OR a bandoleer with
holster.
I also have nylon ones in shoulder holster or
bandoleer style.

Being a lefty as far as handgunning (shoot rifle right
handed) my holster selection has been somewhat
limited.
I have learned to make right hand holsters work in a
fashion. It's been hit and miss (in more ways than
one)

Somewheres around here I have one for my single
actions I made out of a boot top -wins the award for
crude, ugly, cheap but functional.........
