Good luck with it Irish, sounds like a summer special type holster.

Sounds interesting!

I have one of these that I like well enough:

Think you could duplicate something like that in leather?

I'm looking foward to seeing what these look like.

I don't have a permit to carry concealed, so I might not be a candidate, but I'm curious. Do many people carry pistols as large as 1911s in this way, inside the waistband? And do they carry them cocked and locked????? :shock:

Yes and yes. Next question?

It's actually not that hard, depends on if you have enough... er... padding like I do, alas, for it to fit in.

If I remember right Milt Sparks designed the Summer Special years ago for an undercover narc who used it too carry a 1911 concealed, if I carried a 1911 for personal defense I would carry it cocked and locked as it was originally designed to carried.

Cool, from everything I hear, my pf9 is compatible with 1911 holsters, particularly with those for the officers model.

I need a custom made holster for my 4.5" Springfield XDm. I have a great holster for normal belts, but I need a Duty Belt holster for yearly firearms certification. The big duty holster makers make them for the XD in 4 or 5 inch, not for the 4.5" XDm.

It also needs a thumb break. It would be awesome if you could possibly do that.

I searched high and low for a forward canted, left-handed leather or leather & kydex M1935 holster with a strong & thick thumb break.

My Falco holster meeting the above criteria finally arrived from Hungary yesterday. Hopefully you can do something better, someday!

Agreed, but it ONLY for the range.

Irish, I'm warning you now. Expect an order for one of those for a Commander length (4.25") 1911. ;)
