that a holster would be available for a tired old pistol that you really want to carry sometimes?
Well, my tired old pistol, bought new, is a mid 1980s Llama Omni. I have carried this weapon, literally, all over the world. It has never let me down. It is not, and never was, popular enough to have a lot of accessories available.
It is one of the most accurate .45s I have had the pleasure to shoot. The SA trigger break is a very crisp 3 pounds. I love this old thing and will never sell it. I have put many thousands of rounds through it and it has never failed to fire. When, over time, the 1911 magazines it uses begin to develop excessively spread lips I replace the mags for a few dollars and march on.
Any way, I ran accross a web site for Old faithful holsters. They sell a tuckable IWB kit for $20.00 that solved my problem. An honest 1 hour of easy labor turned out a serviceable holster. I could have molded the Kydex a little tighter, and will probably call the company for a fresh sheet for 5 bucks and improve what I have. For now though I'll be able to carry the old girl from time to time in comfort.
That is really very cool. I am about to look that company up myself. I have a couple of guns I'd like to make holsters for....
