I have been looking for a holster to carry my 4&5/8 41 mag Blackwawk when hiking & bowhunting. I wanted something that I could wear with or without a pack, & something not on the chest in the way of my binos & adding another layer of straps along with possibly getting in the way of the bowstring.
I decided to try Simply Rugged's "Sourdough" pancake syle. Checked their "in stock" page, & it turned out he had one that had had extensive tooling done on it that was already to go & was marked down to $65. I asked Rob what he'd charge to add a 3rd belt loop for cross-draw & he said it would be no charge. I sent him a check from Kenai Friday & had the holster Tuesday!
The quality & workmanship are top notch. The gun fit is perfect. There is no retention strap but due to good fit & design the gun is not going anywhere by accident, while it remains quick & easy to draw. The angle when worn cross-draw is great & seems to be out of the way of everything while being easily accessible. Because of the design & the location when being worn cross-draw I don't think it will interfere with the hip belt on my packs at all.
I prefer a plain holster but took this one since it was ready to go & I always want everything "now", but I have to say the tooling is also very well done.
All in all it looks like a holster that will last a lifetime & do it's job extremely well. And after looking at a lot of other holsters, I think these things are a steal at $55-$65.
Thanks for a great product & great service Rob.
