Hey there, I’ve posted here a few times, I’ve got a older 15-2 6VH and I was wondering what kind of holster options there were for my new toy. Where’s the best place to get a holster for these?

This kind of depends on your intended use. I rarely use holsters, but the few I own are from DeSantis. They seem to be a good balance of quality and reasonable price. My local gun shops always have a decent selection, Amazon has at least five pages of holster offerings, and  Cabela’s also carries a good selection in store and online.

As the size and weight don’t intimidate me, I intend on carrying it, whether concealed or not, I currently am using a shoulder holster but I also would like something I can draw from the hip. I know holsters can be tricky so i wasnt sure if there were any specific  reccomendations

Might want a 21/2″ BA for carrying. Any holster for a Python will fit a Dan.

As Ole Dog states, holsters designed for a Python work and so do those for S&W 586/686.  You will likely find a better selection that way than shopping based on a Dan. I tend to compromise on a 4″ BA for strong side hip carry as that works well when seated.  With a 6″ BA I prefer a cross draw but that’s a personal thing so to each their own choice!
