Alan,

It will be hard to recommend a rig that works with your hunting pack without knowing how it fits you. If the belt is wide and covers a good portion of your waist, adding a gunbelt won't be easy. If you have the room, you can position your gunbelt below the beltline of your pants. Crossdraw would be my first choice when in the field. This allows you to carry a backpack and not constantly bump the butt of you pistol against the pack and allows you to protect the gun with your hands when traversing through thick brush. A flap holster would do that work for you but they're hard to find these days.

Butt packs work great as long as you can position the belt for the pack in a manner that allows you comfort. You could do any with the gunbelt and carry on your pants belt(use a wide, double thinkness belt to support the weight of the gun)and run the pack belt under your holster.

If you give some more information, maybe a picture of yourself wearing the pack posted here, maybe we can throw some more ideas your way.

So hows that big Ruger shoot anyway?

Alan,

As long as you wear the waist strap for your pack at or above your pants belt line you should have no trouble with a crossdraw holster. A strong side rig could give you some discomfort. Check out El Paso Saddlery's Tom Threeperson crossdraw. Their phone number is 915-544-2233.

Bill,

The 1920 Threeperson and 1930 Austin are two different models. The Austin is a single loop holster where the Threepersons uses a stiched flap on the back for the belts tunnel loop. I've never handled the Austin but thats my understanding of the difference. The El Paso online catalog leaves alot to be desired, their paper catalog lists a lot more of what they build. The Threeperson's holster is offered in crossdraw and is even pictured with a Redhawk. I tried posting the image but it was rejected as too large. I'll try again later.

No no James, you're right on the money. Good nylon is never a bad choice. Of course bad nylon is another story. I wish the Uncle Mikes and Bianchi lines hadn't shrunk as they have in the past few years. The old Uncle Mikes flap holster was a great buy.
