I'm new to these boards but have been reading posts here for awhile now. Thought I'd say hi and start off my first post with a review of a product made by someone who frequents these boards.
When I had decided on a good reliable outdoors revolver (I ended up with a stainless Ruger Super Blackhawk .44 with a 4 5/8Ē barrel) I knew I needed a good holster for it. After looking at several different brands and not finding what I wanted I decided to have one custom made. After doing some more research and asking questions I came to the conclusion of buying one from Evandailey. Evandailey took the time to ask me several questions about what I wanted and what I was going to be using the holster for. I wanted something that I could use while hunting, fishing, and just general woods carry. Evandailey sent me pictures of some of his work and after much discussion on options, color, and finish I had decided on a chest holster with a removable retention strap and a cartridge slide to hold some extra ammo. I wanted it smooth lined and closed at the bottom. A few short weeks later I recieved my holster and all I can say is wow. It far exceeded anything I had in mind. In addition to being a chest holster evandailey found a way to give me the option of wearing it on my belt as well for those times when I donít want to wear a harness. There is enough adjustment in the straps that I can wear it over a t-shirt or over my hunting parka. The .44 rounds fit perfectly in the cartridge slide, the gun fits perfectly with just the right amount of retention, and the strap is nice an snug over the gun. The stitching is tight and even. Overall the holster reeks of professionalism. Evandailey is a top notch guy to deal with and I highly recommend him for your holster needs. I wore this rig while deer hunting for 9 days this year so far and it has really performed well for me. I have included some pictures to give you an idea on the qualtiy of the item. I freely admit Iím no photographer so go easy on me.
