I like the WWII type tanker holster for carrying a pistol while hunting.

oh lighten the hell up...

i donno what it is accually called, i am sure they got a big name for it, but it basically puts the weapon in front and higher up on your body, its accessable but out of the way. or go for the standard shoulder holster, just wear it on the outside of the jacket/hunting clothes

What are you looking to do with the pistol?  That's going to dictate how you carry it.

If it's going to be for protection, then use a general carry holster.  Something that you can put on your belt on your strong side.  If you're looking to possibly bust a critter with it while stand hunting, then anything will do.

The .44 mag I carry for hunting, I keep it in a holster in my backpack.  When bowhunting though, I carry a .38 for protection in a belt holster on my strong side.  O0

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.

To continue on what BC was saying; if the gun is for protection and you are going to be moving around more than sitting still, then you might want to consider something that allows you to carry it cocked and locked, like a Desantis or Bianchi.

These type holsters are perfect for the 1911, because the gun is cocked with the hammer back, but it's also got a strap to protect it from you falling down and having the gun discharge by accident.

If the gun is to be your hunting weapon, and you are hunting from a stand or blind, then you might want to consider a holster that acts more as a protectant to the weapon. This means it basically covers the gun with a flap and keeps you from scratching it up or dropping it if you fall down. When you get to your stand, then you can load it and keep it in your hands until you have something to shoot at.

If you are using it as a hunting weapon and you are going to be moving around a lot, then it's best to keep it in your hands as Morax stated, and pretty much any belt clip holster will suffice, since you'll not be needing a holster once you start hunting. If you kill one in this fashion, you can still safely carry the gun and drag the deer back without much effort.

i am going to be carrying it for protection mainly while squirrel hunting. down here in texas, everywhere there are squirrels, there are hogs too. i was just concerned that if i carried it on my belt that i wouldn't be able to get to it very quickly while wearing my big jacket.

I didn't think people in Texas wore jackets, especially big ones.  ???

In that case I'd carry it cocked and locked. Hard to beat the Desantis and Bianchi for that.

Leather will set you back more than tactical nylon, (web gear) and looks nicer imho, but the tactical nylon will last longer and you can wear it in all types of weather and it can take a pounding.

I actually still have one that I bought in 1989 for a S&W 9mm and I've worn it here and in Afghanistan and it still looks great and works perfect.
