Can anyone recommend a good holster for field carry? I've got a hunting trip planned next month, and I'd like to carry my 41-V8 on my side. I had an Uncle Mike, but it felt like it was lined with sandpaper. The holder inside snap button rubbed against the cylinder. It did not mar the finish, but it was threatening to so into the trash it went. Long story short, I'm looking for a good carry holster for a large revolver.

I don't often carry w an 8" tube but when I do a break front shoulder holster is the only thing that works for me. I have a 20+ year old Bianchi X15 that is still holding up well. As you state you have an 8" V you may try shopping based on an 8 3/8 S&W 29. VH tubes are harder to fit - I usually search on Colt Anaconda but even that is fairly uncommon...
