I bought a Ruger Super Redhawk in .480 Ruger from a friend ...now I need a holster. Anybody want to comment or make suggestions on the following so my holster search will be more fruitful?
- Holster Brand (to lust after ...or to avoid!)
- Holster type (belt, shoulder, guide/chest)
- Leather or Kydex or ?
My wife carries the shotgun with the slugs and this is just for back-up while camping or berry picking, etcetera. I'm leaning towards a standard leather belt holster, but might consider a shoulder holster (not the conceal carry kind ...the kind that leaves the gun near your hip.) A friend says to get a guide-type holster, the one that carries the gun on your chest near your sternum ...but I don't like things that make me feel 'constrained'. Comments? I'm not too worried about cost, and I value good sense and functionality/utility over anything else. Pretty need not apply.
Thanks a mil!
