Hey gang, I thought this might be a good place to post these pics. I have a couple of Safety Speed "Clamshell" pop-open holsters for medium framed revolvers. I just always thought they were cool, recalling Reed and Malloy on Adam-12 drawing from these. One is mounted on the wall of my home office. The second is a recently acquired Ted Blocker swivel model for a a 1911 platform. I found this one in basketweave but also recently located one in plain leather, awaiting it's arrival. They just take me back to when I started in law enforcement in the mid-80's. For the most part holsters were REAL leather and guns were steel with wood grips. Now holsters are either PLEATHER or plastic along with the guns....sigh! Maybe start this up as a "Show Us Your Classic Leather Duty Holster" thread??
