Anyone carrying an I-Frame? I realize some of you will have concern it's not a magnum, but I find it on the more palatable end of the pocket guns. Which at times, I find handy - and better than a sharp stick.

I'm having difficulty finding holsters. A J-Frame will holster will work in a pinch, but it's not quite right.

Before I resort to modifying or making my own, any suggestions?

How do you carry yours?

Ebay. Look for holsters for things like terriers or vintage leather. Tough but might find one. Being smaller than a J frame makes for a compact little package :). A shame they discontinued those little guys years ago.

I just carry a model 60 … TONS of leather out there for the J. Good luck!!

My first guess would be ebay also. They have a lot of odds and ends that you can't find at a retailer. You just have to keep on checking.

I had to look up what an I frame even was , for those curious 32 S&W long. Apparently not capable of handling the pressure from 38spl and was last produced in 1974.

Something custom would probably be your best bet , I know several gun shows including the 1500 have kydex benders on hand for stuff like this.

I frames are a great size, but I have a weird love for .32 guns. Unfortunately the old I frame my grandmother had was stolen and never found.

I believe there were some chambered in 38 S&W also. Regulation Police model, not sure if there are more.

I like the I frame and have a few 1903 Hand Ejectors. Nothing more modern. They do make an accurate pocket gun.
