    Looking to buy a new holster. Any suggestions?

    I haven't looked at holsters for about 10 months so I don't know if there are new makers or what. I currently own a Crossbreed Supertuck and a Pure Kustom Black Ops pro. I am looking for a different manufacturer than these two. I love both these holsters but I don't want more than 1 holster from the same maker. I like variety :)

    So I need an all leather holster. I either need it for a Beretta .32 Tomcat or a Walther PPK. I want it to be less than $100, high quality, and less than a 4 week wait. I need it to be IWB or IWB/OWB. I prefer it to be from a custom maker rather than a large manufacturer such as Galco.

    Look for posts by bigo5552000 within the past few weeks. He does some nice work, and his price and turn time are very reasonable. I wanted him to work up a piece for me, but he couldn't get the proper mold.

    It seems like the list of really good holster makers has grown almost too long to list. I now look for who to avoid.

    I usually start by browsing the "Where's my holster?" sticky.

    I think you should be able to find a good holster for under $100.00, but I'm not sure about the less than 4 weeks turn around time.

    You might check out UBG. Their turn around time is pretty fast and prices start at $70.

    Fist holsters can usually fill your price requirements within the time-frame mentioned.

    +1 for UBG and FIST. I've owned 3 UBG Canute (Glock 30, Glock 19, Kimber Ultra Covert) and a FIST #1 (Glock 26). The FIST is my newest, which only took just under 3 weeks.

    Holster

    Check Don Hume and see what they have. You might also check EBAY searching for holster and your weapon of choice.

    I just bought a Don HUme 715 IWB for my LCP on ebay after checking the Hume Website and verifying hat a certain holster fit my weapon. Beat the Hume website (probably cheaper shipping) by a few bucks.

    Also have bought a few from theholsterstore.com. for my M&P9C......Great quality and fair prices....

    I too have a CBST for my M&P and my G19/23 but wanted some other options for carry as well.

    So if you had to choose between UBG and FIST, which one do you like better and which one has a better build quality? I am sure they both are great so I know it is hard to choose.

    Check the Holster Store. I've got the Pro Carry LT for my G30. It's a lightweight version of the Pro Carry HD (similar to the Hume 715). If I were to order it again, I'd get the forward cant, but I have no complaints. It holds the gun, like a holster is supposed to do.

    I'm going to have to call it a toss up. I went with FIST specifically for the appendix IWB as that was what I needed. The quality of the leather, molding, and workmanship seem to be fairly even between the two. I'd say it can just boil down to which model holster of the two makers you like better.

    For fast, and good quality, check out Bullard. I have the "Bodyguard" lined. Very nice. (IMO, a step above Don Hume)
    Maybe 6 weeks, look to R. Grizzle. "City Slicker"
    For art, HBE leatherworks.

    I recently overpaid for a pocket gun because it came with a Matt Delfatti Ostrich holster, and I don't regret it one bit. (He's not even taking orders and is 2 yrs behind.)

    I prefer it to be from a custom maker rather than a large manufacturer such as Galco.
    Sorry, when I said " I don't know about the 4 week wait time," I thought you meant one or the small one man operations. Not factory custom like Fist.
