I'm very happy with my Milt Sparks Versa Max 2.

It's expensive, and you'll have to wait for it, but for me it's worth it.

I'm convinced there are more holsters and opinions on holsters than there are germs in a kindergarten classroom.
Anyone with less than a drawer full is either really, really lucky, a n00b, or is way more easy-going than your average forum member.

If you don't outspend the gun price on holsters, you certainly will on ammo.

Thanks for the replies, I do own a crossbreed for my glock, and I'm happy with it just seeing what others are using that carry a full size 1911

I verify the quality of holsters when asked.
Personal likes/dislikes. Like OWB. IWB OK in Summer Special conformation. DISLIKE large leather back/kydex such as Crossbread, C-Tac, .....
Quality holsters just not my liking. :tiphat:

Look into the Silent Thunder. It's kydex, but is leather lined.

Or for a full leather IWB check out Tucker gunleather.

Original Milt Sparks Summer Special. Horsehide next to the body is about as flexible as Kydex.

I have been wanting to buy a tucker like the one in longtooth's avatar. I'm not sure how well i could conceal it. Is there anybody that has a picture with the holster on their side where i can get an idea of how it would sit/conceal. Thanks

Tucker's holsters are almost too good looking to try and conceal :thumbs2:

Not the best shirt for hiding a full size 1911, but it should give you an idea.

This one works well too if you want to go with your shirt tucked in. It's Texas Heritage from Tucker.
