Ruger actually makes a decent one (actually someone else makes it for them.) It is $35 I think. Fits the Bearcat perfectly.

Here is a hint...you fill out the info card that you get in the box the gun came in and Ruger will send you their catalog with a Code for 20% off hidden on the back near your mailing address.

You might even find it on the ruger.com website.

One can find Hunter brand holsters for the 'cat at gunshows or in the "bargain bins" at gunshops sometimes. I found a nice, boxed Bearcat at a gun show and this cute holster came with the deal.

thanks all ... i couldnt find a bearcat holster on the ruger webpage (i guess it might only be listed in the catalog?). however, i did note that hunter makes three different holsters which purportedly fit the bearcat.

Hey n8 those web sites are hard to navigate. It took a few minutes but I found the Ruger.com link to holsters for SS & Bearcats.

I have the Hunter Snap-Off-Belt model holster, Ruger's holster (made by Triple K) and a Blackhawk nylon hip holster (size 12, IIRC). I think anything else is gonna be in the order, wait a month or two, and pay a larger amount type of holster.

These folks seem to make several styles for a Bearcat, including a flap model. I haven't seen one actual, just the website. Looks to be good work and prices.

This is a quality holster that came with this BC when I bought it recently.
Good fit and nice workmanship, unfortunately I don’t know who made it,
no maker's stamp on it anywhere.

+1 for the Triple-K from Ruger. Works and looks great.

I also have an old flap holster of unknown manufacture. But while out in the woods I also use a fanny pack. The small cat fits in small places nicely.

I carry mine cross draw in a holster I made. I've also made similar holsters for others for Bearcats, Single Sixes and Blackhawks.
