So after Lusting after Joe S.' Dan Wesson 744 I've decided I'm going to buy a wheel gun.
I see no since in going down to a .357 when I carry a .45 around every day. So it's .44 mag all the way.
I guess I've decided on the Taurus model 44. I'm kind of torn between 6.5" and 4" sizes right now, I honestly don't know enough about .44 mag ballistics to be knowledgeable about any real difference in ranged accuracy. I've found both for less than 500, NIB from the same dealer I bought my XD through. So it will only be a few weeks to a month before I buy. (Guess I'll trick myself into believing this is my birthday present)
Either way, I'm having a hard time finding a good selection of holsters. I'd like a leather holster, something that covers the entire weapon and does not allow it to lean away from the body. and something I could wear on my waist and cover with a jacket during the cold months. I know I'll probably end up with a nylon holster for vehicle carry, horse back, and trail riding.
Since you fellas have been shooting and carrying a lot longer than I have, I figured I'd bring it up here.
