Kydex?! Leather has stood the test of time, I'd try it with this style of handgun.

I know Halifax, I couldn't believe he mentioned the "K" word. I was trying to ignore it. I shudder at the thought...

For single actions Simply Rugged pancake holsters are pretty good. El Paso Saddlery or Mernickle are pretty good too.

Good to know. My 6.5"er is a tack driver & I've got a bunch of 170gr LSWCs & 180gr SJHPs to play with.

I will second the simply rugged rig (with the chesty puller harness). Triple K makes a good cheap rig. Cowboy needs.com has good prices on them.

Thanks for all the good feedback on holsters, I am leaning towards the simply rugged at the moment.

I also bought the very same vaquero stainless .357. My first revolver and I can't hit the broad side of a barn with it. Do really well with all my semi-auto's but this is way different for some reason. But, I only have 180 rounds though it , so I know it's me not the gun. Enjoy. Most of my rounds have been 38 SPL.

I remember getting my first SA back in '81. Haven't stopped collecting them yet. It's addictive.

357 is a nice load! I had a S&W 686P seven shot and it was really nice
to shoot. The only problem with me was I used 38 special for over a year and the carbon built up as to not allow it to accept 357! I found out when I went to the range and bought
a box of 357 and they didn't fit! I went to the counter and asked if they were the right type. An associate looked at my gun and told me the groove in my cylinder had filled up and I had to do some serious cleaning to get it to accept 357. I learned the hard way.---John

You can say that again! Bought my first single action Ruger, a super SS .22 in 1965 used. How it multiplied into 28 I'll never know!! And I've even sold a few.
