Long Hunter/Sourdough Consolidation

If you are looking for the Long Hunter, you will find it in the Sourdough Holster line up. They are cut from the same patterns and only differ in the whether or not you want the toe of the holster sewn closed.

Custom Ruger SBH w/ 5" S&W M29 barrel

"Smith & Western" I've have heard this too many times in various gun shops... Several years ago, I read an article by John Taffin, in which he  wrote about his Andy Horvath custom .44 mag Ruger Blackhawk that had a S&W barrel fitted to it.
