I am a nut for good leather and I thought this would be a topic most could join in on. This is my Rosen between the belt and pants with sharkskin trim for my Glock 27. No, I didn't pay full price, I bought it on E-Bay. Regards, Richard :-D

Shipwreck,

I have a the same holster for my Gock 19 and 23. It took me a long time to get it broken in, the strap was too short. I talked to Lou Alessi and he told me to dampen the strap to get it to stretch and then retreat the leather with Lexol. I did as Uncle Lou advised and it is a good holster. I picked mine up from a holster barrel in a gunshop for $30.

This is my 4" S&W M629-2 with a Kramer belt holster I bought from Dillon. The same holster works for my 4" Models 625 and 28-2.

Regards,

Richard :-D

These are two more kramer holsters I have. Both holsters are IWB "Duane Thomas" and "#2" and the caption tells what the pistols are. Regards, Richard :-D

Well, mine fits fine. I paid more than $30, though. I got it from Midway USA last Dec.

Shipwreck, it is like you always said about me; what is that? Even a blind squirel occasionally finds a nut!

Hal8000, I have a couple of Uncle Lou's CQC holsters and they are great.

I am amazed at how many quality leather makers there are.

Regards,

Richard :-D

This a holster for a 1911 that you do not see often, it is by Horseshoe leather in England. The first photo is the actual color, I do not know what happened with the color in photo #2.

Regards,

Richard :-D

These are Milt Sparks Mirage belt slides, they make a great range holster or CCW rig for shorter barreled handguns. Why shorter barrels? The barrel on a 1911 etc. tends to show below the covering garment. Regards, Richard :-D

Richard,
The RAPTOR is one of the best shooting 45's I have ever held --you point it will hit--point of aim is just unbelievable for an out of the box gun.
The holster carries well and conceals a 5 inch very well, I like the FBI cant because I am in a wheelchair and it feels better when seated and this one is a no cant carry but the way Jim made it , the carry still works for me and is one of my most prized, as he no longer make holsters due to the increase in the belt production.

Best
Ron

I just got a TSS from Kirkpatrick in the mail today. I'm gonna test it against my Alessi CQC/s and see which one I like better.......
