While my personal concealed-carry choices tend to be in the 1911 realm more often than not these days, the recent acquisition of a Smith & Wesson Model 28-2 - fitted somewhere along its earlier life with the 3-1/2” barrel from a Model 27 - had me desiring to find a good way to port both the gun and some spare ammo.

Enter Barranti Leather. I owned a few pieces of their well-crafted gear already, but never a holster of theirs until now. Pictured is their Summer Classic IWB holster along with their Barranti Spare speedloader pouch and Triple Deuce 2x2x2 ammo carrier.

I can’t overstate how well these items work, particularly the Summer Classic IWB holster. This particular one is crafted for a 4-inch N-frame, and I’ve been using this same holster at times to carry a 4-inch Model 625-6 Mountain Gun. IWB carry of an N-frame? ‘Tis indeed possible!

Pictures here were taken before I’d ever even put the gear on; it’s all now showing a little wear. More pics to come after a little more breaking-in of the leather has occurred.

Nice outfit indeed,

Does that pistol weigh in at less than two pounds ?

It seems very interesting as well.
And
Nice composition

@bendable, many thanks!

That 28’s a bit of a beast but I admit, I’ve never weighed it.

Just checked a reference guide: 41 oz. for a 3-1/2” M-27, so that should be applicable to this M-28, too.

Thank you! Barranti can absolutely hook you up. Plus, they will have shipped it out already - they are in the Top Gun Supply category of speedy shipping!

Have to take a moment to post one more recent arrival from Barranti: another Summer Classic IWB, this one sized for a 5-inch M-27.

I won’t carry this often but I can report from early “trials,” this holster makes carrying this size gun ridiculously easy.
