    Otherwise.. a lanyard on a gun? I get images of Barney Fife ....

    If "Barney Fife" had been DISABLED like me,he would have been well advised to have a lanyard on his gun!

    Many folks sleeping on front lines to this day like a lanyard around their arm, attached to their side-arm,

    while they are sleeping. I know I would, if I were in that situation.

    It may be as simple as Deputy's solution, or perhaps drill a hole through the grip, just inside the frame-tang.

    I use a home made Mexican Choker loop with good rawhide lace, or mil cord.

    My dad told me that in WWII the guys who carried .45s kept them on a lanyard. I went looking for how they did it, and found this pic, which I edited down for size:

    I can't tell for sure, but it looks like the lanyard attaches to the magazine. Or is the Windicator a revolver?

    Hi pardner. See post #10...Popeye showed where to get a work/knock about frame to daily use and add lanyard to. A revolver. And yes on the 1911 mags. Besides just general concern for dropping your weapon accidently when active...most should respectfully remember any revolver with aged history may have been used during Calvary periods. A lanyard being a must for an officer holding it and saber and managing reins all while commanding.

    After looking at #10 above and learning that it's a revolver, I'd be inclined to look for a solution involving a [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

    I pulled out the "grip screw" and it measures M4 (metric) having a tough time finding an eyebolt online with threads that small.

    Tip- whether you use eyelet as I showed example of or other, at home depot or craft store, get the Very small spring loaded catch for your cord or lanyard, for quick release. They make em real small...kinda like, sizes between a key chain, and a necklace ?
    Other option vs. eyelets above. From home depot or similar, get readily available m4 screw with CAP for allen wrench use....drill small hole center through head that will accept such clamp or tiny key ring circle ring ?
    Good Luck.
