    A few months old now, but a classic like your Cobra (or anyone else's) would do well in a Bell Charter Oak holster. Lefty has several designs and does great work.

    It's pretty hard to beat an older Bianchi #5 or 5BH. I believe the B stands for thumbbreak, the H for highride. I have a plain #5 that doesn't ride too high and doesn't even have a strap, and another #5 bought off ebay and on the way that has a safety strap. I consider the Bianchi holsters sort of a modern classic and a good match fora classic piece like your Cobra. They are affordable -- I bought one of mine at a gunshow for $10, and the other on ebay for $28 shipped. I sold a very nice #5B for a 2" d-frame earlier this year for $40.
    The two Colt Detective Specials that I owned fit nicely into some j-frame holsters. I have a nice S&W #22-62 holster which I'm planning on selling-- it's a good but not too snug fit for my Chief Specials so just might work for your Cobra. PM me if you're interested.

    Yes and no. The 5 was originally a strapless revolver holster, the 5A was the version for autos. The 'B' was to differentiate it from the first two, and indeed is the thumb snap. Yes, the 'H' is for the high ride version, though we did not apply it to the 19 auto holster when I converted it to the high ride belt loop created for the 5BH. The straps were added to the original 5s out of prudence. It's nice to think that these old models could still be desirable; some years ago it was a bit of a shock to search 'vintage holster' on eBay and have my Bianchi creations come up! I'm that old!?
