Ruger Super Blackhawk 44.mag, Holster?

I've seen the "Sticky" on leather works companies and figured it would take me the rest of my life to rifle through all of them to find a holster for my Ruger. The problem I'm having is the 10 1/2" barrel… I tried the obvious Safariland and Bianchi, but I get "Sorry…" from both. Thought someone could recommend a good holster maker in the FL area or elsewhere, that either stocks such an animal or can make one for me. Just wanted a belt type, right hip, to carry when I'm hunting. It's stock open sights so no scope to deal with.

Thanks, Sparky

A little side note about Andrews Leather... actually a couple of side notes. I"ve bought several of his holsters for my CZs and Hi Powers over the last several years. His saddle style for EDC and his hybrid saddle for competition. Excellent holsters in terms of quality, gun fit, comfortable carry while holding the gun close in to your body. In short I can't say enough good things about his work. If there's a negative, often as not, you'll be waiting 2 or 3 months for your holster but, IMO, its worth the wait.

About a month ago I ordered another of his saddle style for a CZ 75 Compact I had just purchased. Now with Andrews you can download an order form or call him but you can't simply order online. I have always called and I think its a nice personal touch and insures you get exactly what you want. Because I've ordered several holsters over the years, he remembers me and we usually have a small talk chat. We got to talking and he asked if I had seen The Magnificent Seven. I had seen the original but not the new version. Well its seems that Thell Reed (part of the "gang of six" back in the day which included Jeff Cooper and Jack Weaver) has taken a liking to Andrews holsters. He (Thell Reed) was also the shooting consultant for the remake of the Magnificent Seven. To make a long story shorter, Andrew's made all of the holsters for that movie and one of his Webley's, which he collects, was also used in the movie. The director of the movie is apparently a stickler for getting things right for the time period of the movie so holsters were made with that in mind. Here's a web link to Andrews' web page of holsters made for the movie and other notables that he's made holsters for.

Spent some time on the web site last night and took a particular liking to the "Vaquero rig" It's kinda close to the original holster I used out in CA 25 years ago. As you said worth the wait!
