Skyball Mountain Bandoleer Holster Review
I was looking for a holster for my 22A with no luck, until I found this holster on E-Bay. It is a size 22-7 which is made specifically for the 7" barrel S&W 22A pistol.
I paid $32 for it from Skyball Mountain's E-Bay store with free shipping. All Skyball Mountain holsters are American made at their shop in Alabama, they offer a wide selection of holsters : Belt, Shoulder, Drop Leg/Tactical, Bandoleer, Ankle, Concealed Carry, and Ammo Pouches at affordable prices. The holster I purchased is top quality nylon in a camo pattern. It features tough nylon strapping throughout the holster for extra support. The shoulder strap is fully adjustable with quick release buckles and a padded, adjustable shoulder pad. It also has a moisture barrier to protect your pistol. The retention straps use a snap buckle and are Velcro adjustable to hold your pistol securely in place. A Velcro strap loop is used to attach the bottom of the holster to your belt so it won't swing or move out of position. I also discovered it has a belt loop so you can remove the bandoleer and use it as a hip holster. It offers a smooth, no snag, draw. Overall this holster is very comfortable to wear and seems to be very well made. A great investment, I highly recommend it.
It is not a scoped pistol holster and I knew that when I purchased it, but when I received it, I was able to alter it to accommodate the red dot on my 22A.
I used a razor knife to carefully cut the stitching on the straps around the holster and removed them. Then I cut away a section on the top of the holster for the scope , used some excess nylon to seal the cut edges and sewed everything back in place. I then sewed the bottom strap buckle onto the side of the holster. Problem solved, my scoped pistol fits perfectly and my alterations didn't compromise the quality or fit of the holster. I have to wear it in the forward position now because the bulk of the red dot isn't very comfortable at my side or under my arm.
