I just picked up a Smith M22A. Stock #107426 (http://www.kygunco.com/prodimages/22854-DEFAULT-L.jpg) with 5.5" bull barrel, hi viz front sight and soft grips. Its going to be a weekend plinker. I need a general purpose holster, and right now I am leaning towards a full flap as I may be wearing it while trudging around in a bushy rural area. Doesn't need to be fancy, but sturdy is good. I could live with nylon instead of leather just fine. Not wanting concealability with this.

Before I reinvent the wheel and start searching everywhere... anyone here have a good steer for me?

see if one of the old military (for the colt 1911) holsters will fit. they're usually easy to find at surpluses and second hand racks at gun stores

Bought a holster @ Walmart for mine. Cost about $12, nylon type with strap that goes over the grip. I can't remember the model number but it was the longest one on the shelf. Pistol fits nicely and is functional but won't win any beauty contests. Works with my Heritage Rough Rider 6.5" revolver as well.
