The guns are out there. The holster has some value.

I would not cut, alter, destroy that holster. Use it as is, sell or give away; your choice. Safariland quality and name deserve more respect than being butchered.
ebay it, it will sell and likely in the worth messing with money

I disagree. Don't cut off the strap. Find someone who can use it. I've got an Askins Avenger for the 1911here that someone cut the strap off. In a perfect universe, I'd have the time to disassemble it and do the repair it needs for me to use it. If I live a thousand years, that might happen. I once had the skills to do it, but that was about 50 years ago.

Anyone have an Askins Avenger they want to let go cheap? With the thumb strap?
Wasn't @Pstmstr getting into leatherwork? You might want to see if he can fix it.

I'd really like to have a Charter .44 SP Bulldog myself. ------------------ I've got much bigger and stronger hands, and about 10-12 rounds is all I can manage with it.

I know you're talking about your wife's .38,,,
But 2-3 cylinders of .44 is all I want.

Even with low-recoil cowboy action loads,,,
That pistol is brutal on your hands.

It's definitely not a recreational shooter.

I used to be recoil-insensitive. Used to be. But steel would have to be a little bit better than that alloy frame. Also have a Smith 66-1, in .357mag and it's not nearly as bad as her little pistol. Only fired moderate 38sp handloads with 158gr cast boolits in her piece. I have an ammo can of them my brother gave me. And both factory & handloads in .357mag. And a 4" Security Six... Only the alloy frame Charter is that hard to handle.

I'd at least like to try one again, on the Bulldog. That's another of many weapons I should have never let go. Too bad there's no kicking yourself in the *** emoji. :crying:

40 or 50 bucks? And one he got for a song in a bundle box? ----


Cut away and be happy - make it work
