    A quick search for your revolver shows eight different holsters suitable for your gun. Two are shoulder rigs. I like the Galco because you can wear it strong side or crossdraw.

    Businesses that don't accept AmEx don't get my business. They have the best fraud protection of all the credit card companies. As someone who has been the victim of identity fraud twice, I can't tell someone who hasn't how bad it is.

    I like AmEx. They are non-political, and give the best customer service and fraud protection of all credit card companies.
