View Full Version : IPSC Holster choice

September 22, 2002, 02:07 PM
Just bought a 4 inch S&W 625 .45ACP revolver to do double duty in IDPA and IPSC. I had no problem picking a holster for IDPA but am having trouble finding a suitable IPSC holster.

I've been using a Safariland Cup Challenge holster for my 6 inch, moon-clip modified 686 and this is a great holster. Problem is, my 625 is a 4inch tube and won't work in this holster. Any suggestions as to a solution? I'd like to stay with a similar design. I have a Blade-Tech straight drop holster for the 625 but I found the design of the Cup Challenge to be faster for me.

Any help would be appreciated.

Check out the CR speed revolver holster. This year they came out with a block for the holster that will work with 4" guns. If you have any questions, email me at [email protected]

A shooter from my area uses a Blade-Tech revolver holster, with a distinct muzzle-forward cant. He shoots a 6" Model 25, but they should be able to make it for a 4". The guy shot a sub-six second El Prez with the rig at Nationals, so it couldn't have slowed him down too much!
