I'm picking up my Vaquero Tuesday, and am interested in getting a crossdraw holster for it. I'm thinking of something in the sub $100 range. Looking for some recommendations if anyone has some experience with them. It does need to be for a left handed shooter, color doesn't matter much to me.

Thanx

Do you want it for plinking, hunting or concealment? The few organized ranges that allow holster use usually won't allow crossdraw holsters.

Check out Bianchi Holsters. This one is the Cyclone and can beworn Crossdraw, or strong side. This one I found is for a Redhawk, But Im sure they have them fo Blackhawks as well.

I am gonna use the holster while camping and hunting. I don't plan on using a holster on the range. I like crossdraw holsters because I carry my knife either in my left pocket or on my left hip. I cannot shoot pistols right handed due to a wrist injury.

Here is the one I got. The Guy modified it for Me to hold My Super RH.Also allows Me to sit on the ground on a Coyote stand without the holster hitting the ground http://www.oldtradin...roducts_id=7114

Good luck. I really like mine. However I always take the Bullets from the bullet loops while driving around hunting." Revolver empty too" Just to avoid any possible misenterpritation by a Game Warden.. lol

Yes sir! I do the SAME THING when traveling, no need to get in trouble!!! This gun will mainly serve as a plinker/snake gun while out hiking about.

When I had my 44 mag that I bought of deer hunting outta my jeep, I had it on my CCW prmit. That way I could carry it in the holster under th coat with no problems. I got kinda strange looks when I wanted to put a big ol gun like that on my CCW, but what the hell.

Braz I think you broke the law by hunting with that gun out of your vehicle even though it's on your CCW. The idea is to be outside your vehicle before you load the gun. I'm pretty sure had a warden seen you he would have cited you. As you know it's legal to carry a concealed weapon while you are hunting but not in a vehicle is where they draw the line.

If that is so I'm still breaking the law by carrying a handgun on my hip like I usually do. I'll continue and fight that one. Stupid california laws don't make any sense do they.

Okay but I'd ask fish & game about it as your CCW gun isn't supposed to be your hunting weapon.
