I am looking for a leather bandoleer/cross draw style holster for my scoped 14" Encore. I have done several google searches and there is not much out there in the way of Encore handgun holsters of any sort. Those of you hunting with the Encore handguns how are you toting them in the woods and who/where could you recommend I contact to find such an item. Any pictures you have would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

If leather is what you're looking for, contact Mike "Doc" Barranti at Barranti Leather Company. He can't build you what you need. Ask about his Northeastern Hunter model; very well made and extremely comfortable.

Can't help you there. I just use a sling.

I have had the Bandito Belt rig from Pistol Packaging and it works very well:

I now use a sling though as it also aids in steadying the shot.


Rod, too.

Short cuts often lead to long recoveries.

I use a sling for big scope guns.

I have been using Bandito Rigs for my pistols for over 15 years. I have them for a Ruger SRH; BFR; and an RPM XL. Great workmanship, good price, and nice folks to do business with.

I really like the Shamrock Holster for the encore; economical as well

I have been using Boyt Harness Contender cases for years. I add D Rings to the handles to attach a strap for cross chest carry.
