Concealment or regular carry? Bianchi makes a nice OWB holster that can be concealed and won't break the bank. The model is the 5BH.

I believe you could find some IWB holsters as well but a full size .357 isn't something that I am an expert at concealing.

Kramer leather....horsehide ...is the only holster I'll wear...

I like the forward FBI tilt on my holsters...

I have both IWB and belt scabbard holsters ...for my N, L and K frame S&W revolvers...from Kramer. Great holsters.

I have and like a relatively inexpensive Gould and Goodrich I got off amazon. I don't use it every day, but I've had it for 6 months or so and worn it out hiking several times. It seems well constructed, and holds the gun very securely.

I have a blackhawk that I bought at Wal Mart and an Uncle Mike's I bought at my friendly neighborhood LGS. both have been more than adequate for carry in the field. I have a 6" GP100

For walking the woods, I have a synthetic Bianchi UM-84R (flap-holster in the style of the military M9 holster, but made for 4" revolvers).

For other times I have a leather Galco pancake that works fine.

OP said he wanted a carry holster, I believe the one ruger sells has a thumb break, which may or may not be best for carry.

Bianchi UM84R field holster....

For range or field carry, Id highly suggest the great Bianchi UM84R 4" med frame nylon rig.
It's based on the milspec M12 holster used by NATO & US troops since the mid 1980s. The UM84R is offered in black, OD & a camo version.
You can wear it on belts up to 2.25" wide & convert it to shoulder or crossdraw carry.
I owned a Bianchi UM84R for my Ruger GP series GPNY(a stainless .38spl revolver designed for the NYPD). I used the holster often in the 2000s.

There are a few other good holster brands out there too; Milt Sparks, Don Hume, Galco, Alessi, Greg Kramer, El Paso Saddlery, Simply Rugged, DeSantis.

Good point and correct.
