    I had my hopes up for a blackhawk style paddle holster, but none seem to exist. Bought a soft nylon holster for now, but I don't like how it feels. Does anyone have this gun and carry it? I'm thinking the next option is a leather holster. Don't really want to shell out the money and "hope" it works. Nobody seems to make a holster specifically for this model. So, does anybody have a holster they like for a S&W 457? Thanks for any info.

    Blackhawk isn't my cup of tea with the whole button to release...

    I recommend searching http://www.copsplus.com

    TBH, I think Blackhawk holsters are junk. Also, if you're serious about OCing everywhere, buy a duty belt + belt holster + belt keepers. That way you can take the gun off with the belt attached.

    A duty belt goes over your regular belt, you do not loop it through your pants. The belt keepers go around both belts.

    There doesn't seem to be much of a selection for your 457, but I've just went through a couple pages on the search.

    Might consider looking at holster that are advertsided to fit the 4506 series, maybe even the 910, 915, 410 and 411.

    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    The 457 seems to be the redheaded step child from S&W. I spent over an hour looking and found nothing specifically for it. I like the Don Hume's, but would like to get my hands on one before I lay down $50+ bucks and hope it fits. May have to hit one of the gun shows and look around.

    S&W has so many models some holster makers don't even bother.
