Well, at least you won't be packing a Glock - which, of course wouldn't have fired if the idiot hadn't tried to catch the gun by its trigger.  I haven't tried any backflips, but my Commander seems to be well secured.

That one looks great!  My Commander needs a new holster.

Not having a retention strap worries me. You think my gun will stay in the holster if I do some backflips when I dance?

Been looking for another holster for my Combat Commander, something fairly easy to conceal under a shirt tail for OWB carry.  Always like Bianchi products while the man was alive and running the company.  Since the company has been out of his hands (think he retired in 1993), pretty much all Bianchi holsters I've handled seem to have gone to crap.  Light, overly flexible leather and appears the suede holster lining has been replaced with a heavy grade of sandpaper.

Have seen a number of ads for John Bianchi's Frontier Gunleather, a small one man company he started after his retirement to make custom Western rigs.  Over the years its grown a bit with several original Bianchi holsters being modified a bit (imagine to beat any legal charges) and added to the inventory.  For the past couple years I've been meaning to order a Vulcan holster (a modified version of his original Askin's Avenger).  Finally got off my butt a couple weeks back and ordered one.  Got it in last week.  Fit and finish of the holster is first rate, better quality (heavier) leather than any Bianchi holster I've seen in recent years.  Got the smooth leather lining; again very high quality work.  Wrapped my Colt in light plastic and left it in the holster for a couple days.  Fit is now perfect, the gun is still held securely in place - but draw from the holster is smooth and quick.  I really like this rig.

If anyone here is an old Bianchi fan, or just looking for an excellent leather holster, belt or combo I strongly recommend you check these boys to see what they have to offer!!  frontiergunleather.com

Just prior to the move I was loading some .44 Mag ammo using Hornady 240 gr XTP's. Once I get my reloading gear unpacked I'll have to get some more .44 Mag brass for the Marlin.

Been ordering ammo from Georgia Arms (georgia-arms.com) for the past ten years or so.  Always very clean and never had a problem with any of their loads.  Just ordered 250 rds of .44 magnum 240 grain SWCs and another 250 rounds of .41 magnum 210 SWCs for $25/50 rds.  Ammo arrived in less than a week with no problems; delivered to the door by FEDEX.  Took 50 rds or each to the range to check in my 4" 629 and my model 58 Smiths.  Was impressed with the quality and performance of both loads.  The .44 SWCs are rated at 1000 fps.  In my 4" S&W they cleared the chrono between 980 and 992 fps.  The .41 magnum rounds are rated at 800 fps, over the chrono they ran between 880-902 fps; a little warmer than expected, but still easy handling.  Can't find either load locally for under $50/box, looks like I'll be ordering another 1K of each load, replacing it as I shoot.

It is an excellent article.  Hope McConnell can get his head out of his butt long enough to get Kavanaugh voted into the SCOTUS.

Thereís a chance.
