on another note, I FINALLY got my hands on a mossberg 44 type magazine for my 42C.



75 year old rifle, 80 year old scope mount, 50 year old scope, brand new magazine, haha.

So far total investment in this is the cost of the magazine....$38.00

I tried to use one for over a year and hated it, with multiple guns.

It actually caused me to sell a gun, and then to almost sell another but then i thought "how about i try a quality holster". I got a crossbreed supertuck and now carry my G19 every day. If you asked me 1 week before i got the good holster, i would have said a G19 is too big to carry concealed.

holster makes all the difference.
I have been carrying a Beretta 92FS for a year and a half without issue. I wouldnt hesitate on getting another one.

Same went for my old 1911, never carried it. Had a custom rig built for my sig 1911 that is full size (weird slide profile, rail, and left handed meant there was not a single offering on the market for me) and now i conceal that dang thing under a t shirt too.
Maybe I should specify: I hadn't really thought that the choice of your holster was as important as the choice of your gun until I started reading what you had to say about it, and then it really started to make sense. You prompted me to research concealed carry holsters, not necessarily buy the Crossbreed. I just happened to come to the same conclusion you did when you bought yours

Different strokes for different folks is what I always say! Nothing wrong with that.


May I ask, have you ever carried it in a better material (not as thin and soft, so, like a leather holster) holster that was actually made for that gun?

Good good, I think a lot of people think the way you originally did.

I have a heavy fabric holster that I also use, it is universal not gun specific. IWB isn't to bad if you have an undershirt because it offers no fabric over the hammer, OWB it is very sturdy and comfortable. I use that holster for the few times I open carry, mostly to and from the range, but use it almost all the time in the winter when wearing a coat. Have looked into a supertuck but keep spending my money on other things, but soon.

Has anyone ever tried a belly band holster? Was looking for something when not wearing a belt. Came across one on you tube were the guy made it with a piece of leather for comfort. Was thinking of have the wife make one as she thinks the fabric would only be a few bucks, then the holster slots would be custom sized.

Also, found out the rifles I inherited over the summer are finally coming home, parents are coming up for Thanksgiving and bringing them, a 22, nothing to get jumpy over but new to me and a 50 cal muzzle loader. No one know my father-in-law had it, apparently he bought it in the late 70's, custom stock, cool engravings. Doesn't appear to have ever been fired before, so I figure I can change that rather quickly. Also gonna hold onto his pistols, a 22 and an unknown Korean WWII pistol. Brother-in-law is taking them but lives in IL and doesn't have a FOID yet. So I will hold onto them and do some research on the Korean gun. There was an episode of Sons of Guns that showed a Japenese Nambu which very closely resembles it, so possibly a Korean version. Can't wait to fin out, will post pics once I have them.

I'd say you'll be surprised by the accuracy if you can smooth the trigger out just a little. I've yet to come up with one of the older Mossbergs that wouldn't shoot. Oscar and Sons built a pretty good rifle.

Did the magazine come with the short adapter?

Usually, only the 44's were spec'd out as .22 LR only. Does you're 42 have the trapdoor buttplate?

Yup, my trigger sucks. Not gritty or anything, its just heavy as all get out. Still surprises me with the accuracy though. 25 yards it makes one ragged hole.

The mags from Havlin do come with the adapter. I believe mine is S, L, LR. Though I have never bought anything other than LR in my life.

Unfortunately I do not have the trap door for an extra mag. I'm told it may not have even come with a buttplate, being a 42C, but it has screw holes in the plate, i just need to find a correct one. I have a 44 trapdoor plate, but it isnt the same profile as this stock.

I did end up with an uncle Mike's holster. It is actually pretty comfortable. I got a left hand holster and have it in the small of my back, though I don't carry it everywhere with me. Its virtually invisible there. I have a Browning BDA in .380, which is pretty small, but it shoots rather well.
