I do a lot of Cowboy Action Shooting and would suggest a "Huckleberry" rig like the one Doc Holiday wore. There are quite a few makers of them but the best of the best is made by Big Ed Douglas @ San Pedro Sadelry in Toombstone, AZ. Give him a holler, I know he can come up with anything you want. He does custom work at great prices.
Have you tried just sticking the barrel inside your pants? I've carried my Single Six with 5 1/2" barrel that way and with the belt tight it stays in place pretty well. It worked pretty well for McCloud too. Stay safe, Gary
Yes, Gary I've tried it, and I didn't find it very secure at all. I'm a LEO, and one of my big concerns is if I happen to get into a scuffle with someone off duty, trying to make an arrest, I don't want the weapon flipping out in the middle of the fight.
Also, I just really like nice leather gear.
I have made concealment rigs for Colt SAA previously (though few and far between). All have been pancake style belt scabbards or
"Avenger-style"/Nelson Proffesional type OWB holsters. I'm sure I could do something along IWB lines if you can live with a cylinder that large in your waistband.

I've often thought about an SAA IWB.... just for the coolness of it.... but it makes for such a disadvantage compared to a more modern arm (say, 1873 + at least 38 years ). Still, if Mark comes ujp with something really useable I just might have to have one. Please let me know what you find.
