Already a popular option for shorter-barreled revolvers and automatics, Galco has released new models of its premium-steerhide Great Alaskan chest holster, crafted to fit longer-barreled, hunting-style revolvers. This includes six- to six-and-a-half-inch barreled revolvers from Smith & Wesson, Ruger,Colt and others.
Good for both handgun hunting and backcountry protection, the Great Alaskan's positioning on the wearer's chest keeps it clear of the waistline, and of any water encountered when wading. Likewise, when a shot appears, drawing from a chest rig is fast and simple. When in rougher country, a simple retention strap with a polymer finger tab keeps the revolver from tumbling free from its holster. Finally, for comfort even when carrying a heavy load, the Great Alaskan boasts a wide premium-steerhide shoulder and torso strap. This harness will also accept a carrier for spare ammunition (sold separately). For more information on these new Galco Great Alaskans, please visit galcogunleather.com.MSRP: $225
