    Both are very well made and last you for years. I am sure you will not be disappointed by either. I do like the looks of the 5 shot a bit better.

    Both are great holster makers but my hat tips toward John Ralston of 5-Shot Leather.

    That what I was thinking, but I've been told I am on the border line of comfort with the wider LA-CCS because of my smaller waist size. I actually was able to fit a 1911 inside my waist with my 33" paints. I have a pair of 34" that I can fit two 1911s if I want to :-).

    Thanks for the replies everyone. I ended up going with A Bulman TSA-HP IWB. I was really considering the IBS but Heirloom was out of stock for the 4.25" and John said currently 6 months wait, although he's working on shortening that. John at 5 shots was nice enough to say some very nice things about Bulman holsters when I asked his opinion. I appreciate his professionalism. I did order one of John's mag carriers (SSPC) though . Oh yea, I bought a new DW VBOB Valor to go with the holster.

    Josh Bulman is on par with Matt Del Fatti and thus his holsters are nearly impossible to get. John Ralston is the only Alessi protege who is producing holsters as good as his mentor. The Alessi family is second to John and Skip Ritchie is starting to catch up.
    All, my opinion only.
