    Stick with the CrossBreed. IMO the best holster on the market. Plus the price is such that your not breaking the bank to buy one.

    Welcome to the 1911 club.

    Give Fist holsters a try...see 'Related Links' above...

    All my 1911s go in Milt Sparks Versa Max IIs. I am thinking about grabbing a Brommeland Max-Con V due to the taper at the bottom. Looks like a nice one!

    You are in business with the classic 1911... there are thousands of great holsters for you to pick from.

    Congrats on your new pistol! So...after you got over the initial surprise.....how did it shoot? You liking it a little bit, or a lot? Can't wait to take it out again, or just clean it and look at it? Reason I'm asking is cause I still want one of these and interested to hear more PT1911 owner's opinions.

    I love 1911's, bet you can't stop with only one. I've got a complete matching rig from Nate at UBG holsters for mine, IWB holster, belt, mag holder, his stuff really is top notch.

    Good. Good.

    Enjoy that 1911. Those PT1911s look to be a great value.

    + 1 in a big way for TT Gunleather. Great holsters at a very good price WO the long wait. Also gives military and LEO's a discount which raises my respect for him. His quality has improved since he started out and I give Tim nothing but the highest recommendation. Here is one of his IWB's for my H&K P7. A quality holster for a quality pistol IMHO.

    I have a crossbreed and it works well for me.
