    Thanks. The Bianchi Shadow II looks pretty close to what I wanted, so I'm taking your recommendation. And following the links off of Bianchi's homepage, it looks Like Brateman's has some pretty good prices (so much so that I ordered a few additional holsters.) As far as DeltaForce.com, unfortunately they don't have the one to fit the S&W 36 in stock. It seems Old World Leather has been out of business for a couple of years. D'oh! (I sure miss that OWL holster!)
    Thanks, Bill. I think you'll like the Shadow. Us and holsters can be like women and shoes (OK girls - don't flame me on this )

    I'd much rather try on holsters than shoes

    My favorite rig is from Bob Mernickle. Rides high and tight with no wiggle and excellent retention. Very classy rig, but cost @ $80.

    Wild Bill's holsters out of Garner, NC makes some nice stuff. I have a rig for my snub and one for my 1911 by him, and have been totally happy.

    Nothing wrong with Mitch Rosen, Galco, Bianchi, or Don Hume....all good makers.

    I can make you an appendix carry holster for that S&W M36.

    Tess, I'm tempted to send my fiancee to live with you for a few weeks if we could negotiate an agreeable fee.

    Unfortunately, she is a really, really good saleswoman and I fear that she would come home with no holster but you would have dozens of pairs of new shoes and a shelf full of new purses. :P

    I'd take that bet. She might win on the shoes (not likely), but I have one purse and that's all I need.

    Come to think of it, even most of my holsters are JBP (from http://www.holsterama.com though I bought them at the Chantilly gun shows) and all the same style and color.

    LOL - My fiancee told me that if Louis Vitton or Coach start making holsters she'll be more convinced about carrying.
