So my wife gave me the green light to buy a new “toy” for our 25th wedding anniversary. I blazed a trail to the local fun store and got the revolver I’ve been eyeing for a while - a S&W 19 K-Comp.
Now...anyone got suggestions on a good CCW holster?
Barranti leather has some great leather. I just received a model CCR for a 3" K frame and it is excellent. No long wait time either...

The original K-comp, or the new issue?

New issue...just put in the case...
I have one and carry it in a desantis belt scabbard holster with the thumb snap. The revolver has a great trigger and the ball detent set up locks it up like a vault. I probably have about 700 rounds thru mine, at least 300 .357, the rest .38. Cabelas had a run on Winchester 110 gr. White box, so I bought a case. That round thru the k comp are actually fun to shoot. A little loud, but very mild for a .357. Very accurate as well.
Congrats on your milestone and new revolver. It's a good one.

While I do not own one of the Model 19 K-Comps, I do own the Model 66 F-comp and one for the 7 shot Model 586 L-comps. I have been very happy with them.
Sooner or later I will add the Model 19 just because I prefer to look of a blue gun
I use mostly Galco Holsters for my newer acquisitions and have a pancake for the 586 L-comp.
Naturally the Model 66 F-Comp or your Model 19 K-Comp fits in most of my old leather from my snubby 19/66 carrying days. Many of the 2 1/2" holsters are actually long enough and I have leather from a 3" 66 which is a perfect fit
You do nto mention of you prefer an IWB style holster or an OWB design.
For IWB I have always been fond of the Bianchi Pistol Pocket for the revolvers. Most leather makers have a copy of it available with a different name
For OWB, I like the Bianchi Askins Avenger (and all it's clones) or the Galco Concealable

If you intend carrying OWB, look at Garrett Industries Silent Thunder Ranger. A leather lined Kydex holster that rides close to your body. I have one for my custom 3" 65-5 and love it.

I've got a 3" Model 66 and carry it in an El Paso Saddlery Street Combat holster. It makes for a great carry combination.
