    New owner of S&W 4506-1

    I am both new to this forum and a new owner of a S&W 4506-1. I have had it for about 3 weeks now and have put 250 rounds thru it already without a single hiccup. This gun is amazing.

    The only problem I have right now is I cannot find a holster to fit it. I did a search on here for 4506 and 4506-1 and came up empty handed so I figured I'd just ask.....

    Anybody else have one of these beauties? Any leads on where I can find a standard holster? I found a Bianchi IWB that wasn't made for it but it does fit it. I really want a standard hanging holster that was made specifically for my gun.
    Any ideas?

    Thanks
    Richard

    Search gunbroker.com and Ebay.com . Plenty of them for a 4506.

    What, pray tell, is a "standard" holster? Try Galco. They are a sponsor here, and their search is the easiest to use. Also Bianchi does list a couple of models for the 4506. There are several others. Get a good one though, otherwise it will end up laying in a drawer, or box.
    Also try Midway and Cheaper Than Dirt, they carry several brands. You just have to order and wait.

    Sorry, by "regular holster" I was referring to an outside the pant, attaches to the belt, style holster.
    I have tried Galco's website and came up empty. I tried gunbroker but the site was down(Friday night).

    Thanks for the input, I'll keep looking.

    The following link will take you to Don Hume model 721 OT which is a holster I use and like. They have a number of models including this one for the 4506

    For OWBs, Galco only offers the Yaqui Slide for the 4506. Nice pistol, but not a popular concealment gun, and concealment is Galco's main emphasis.

    Just as an FYI, many holsters for the Beretta 92FS will crossfit to the 4506.

    Thank you TOF. I checked the link and it does list it for the 4506 but not the 4506-1. My understanding is the mine(4506-1) has the round trigger guard where the 4506 has the square one. Will this make a difference on the holster or will it fit the same?

    Yes, it is kind of big for a "conceal" gun but it is my favoite of the 2 I own. My other pistol is a 9mm Makaorv. That is certainly smaller and easily concealed but doesn't pack the punch of my .45. I feel safer with my .45 on my side vs. the Mak.

    My 4506-1 was given to me by my father for a birthday present 2 months ago.
    I quickly fell in love with it. To date, I have shot about 350 rounds thru it and no issues with it at all. Fed them all with not one hiccup and once I got it sighted in, it is deadly accurate.
    I have to get a better feel for the trigger as I keep hitting low and left.

    For some reason, every time I shoot it, the first round ALWAYS hits low and left. After that, I can usually hit right where I am aiming.
    I read a great post by TOF the other day about "getting a feel for the trigger" and am practicing every night. Great info TOF.

    Thanks guys.

    You could probably shoot the folks at Don Hume an email and ask. Galco holsters fit the round and square S&W trigger guards interchangeably.

    I did check them and the holsters they offer for mine are not exactly what I was looking for. The ones they list for my model are open at the bottom(leaving most of the barrel exposed), not sure if that matters but I was kind of looking for an "enclosed" style? One that is not open on the bottom.

    I had a hard time finding a holster for my Mak as well. Didn't think it would be as difficult for the S&W
