I am using a Tri-Vertible rig ( vertical or horizontal shoulder set up that can also be used OWB ) it can be used either Right or left hand. I also have an old paddle style with loops that snap over the belt. the holster mounts on a metal tab and then snaps to the paddle to secure it making it very easy to remove if you have to go into an area where you cannot carry. I originally bought it for use with the Colt Cobras. I also have a Blackhawk nylon OWB for field and everyday carry including an occassional run into town.
I do love the way the 617 soaks up the recoil from the full house 158 gr. 357 magnums it feel almost like the Colt Cobras shooting 38 specials.
