    Not exactly your traditional revolver setup. I have a new love for K-Frame S&W's, perfect size, still 6 shots, awesome.

    I picked up this 66 No-Dash (dates to 1977 i think?) last year and went a little weird with it. Heavily textured VZ grips, then had LAG Tactical custom mold me a coyote brown holster, and I made myself a speedloader holder. the speedloader thing doesnt look profesisonal quality, but it works really well and is ambidexterous. I couldnt find any products that met my needs, so made myself one.

    Coupled with a riggers belt, its a modernized revolver carry setup that I absolutely love when I'm out and about in the desert or woods.

    It carries quite nicely:

    I had a 6" nickel version in the late 70's, shot that thing a bunch then traded it for a 8 3/8" 29

    Looks pretty darned good to me. Couldn't tell the speedloader carrier wasn't a purchased product without more than a cursory examination.

    On odd revolvers I have a Spanish made Trocaola revolver that's actually a mashup between a Colt Police Positive and a S&W K-Frame. The grips had more or less melted away over the years before I got it in an estate sale so last weekend Coach and I took a set of wood Python grips and did a little work on em' to get them to work on it. I'll post pics in a bit. Haven't gotten around to making a holster for it yet. The pistol was purchased with the intent of giving it to my best friend / spotter The Disco Tripper. Now that I've finally gotten the grips done and some bluing restored I just have to wait 11 months for his birthday or think of another occasion.
