    Personal choice, I'd go with the Pure Kustom Black Ops Pro. Oh, I did.

    I have Black Ops Pro holsters for several weapons. I love them as they allow for comfortable concealed carry for a variety of weapons.

    Check out my AVATAR. This is one of Rockie's Black Ops Pro's for the 1911. So far, it out surpasses all the other holsters I have (C5, Mitch Rosen, MTAC).

    Holsters are sort of a personal thing, but having used both a VMII and one of Rocky's Black Ops holsters, I'd recommend giving the Black Ops a try.

    I don't think you can go wrong with the Black Ops Pro. It's such a versatile holster, and the craftsmanship is impeccable. Rocky is a fine artisan for sure!

    Del Fatti? Good luck with that. Guys grouch about waiting 6 months for a Sparks. Matt is years behind. In fact, I believe he recently took some orders, but stipulated that the 1911 was all he would take orders for. I'd sure like to see one of his pieces for real.

    There is a well known company out there that does stock Del Fatti products and believe me when I say that Matt Del Fatti is in a league of his own.

    Rocky's Black Ops Pro is the best holster I have owned.
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    I love holsters, so some day, I'll get a Sparks - it's just that where I am now in my training, I'm dedicating a lot of funds to tuition, ammo, and gear that I know works....and for me, the Pure Kustom Black Ops Pro is one of those pieces.

    I'm new to concealed-carry, but I've carried my XDm9 3.8 Compact since late last March, virtually every day, and aside from a few of my "gun friends," no-one, and I mean no-one, knows that I carry. My everyday wear? A $5 Old Navy T shirt, untucked, over some Old Navy jeans (yeah, I'm a slob, but when you're an academic scientist, no-one really cares if you've just fallen out of the pages of GQ or if you're dressed worse than the hobo on the corner ). Ask my wife if I carry, and she'll say "carry what?"

    The extended sweat-guard takes getting used to, but it doesn't compromise the draw if you trained towards it, and offers exceptional comfort even for us guys who have love-handles. My first time timing-in from concealment was this past August, so you do the math: after 5 months or so of training, starting from absolute scratch (my last time on the range, prior to November of 2010, when I started shooting, was some time in 2002/3), I was able to easily meet the old Gunsite standards, and it was using my everyday dress, my everyday holster, my everyday carry gun.

    Knowing that I'd be shooting more from-concealment this year, I actually purchased a second Black Ops Pro, so that I would have one that was dedicated for training use.

    I've seen and handled a Sparks, and sure, it's an impressive piece, and I'd like to own it to try it out - but I'm not ditching my Pure Kustom like it's yesterday's newspaper, because I know how comfortable it is, and how well it works. Sure, I'll get a Sparks one day, but from everyone who has had both, in the end, it comes down to personal preferences, and Rocky's holsters rank right up there with the best.

    Since you already have a VMII, get one of Rocky's. I've only seen the great pics of them that he posts here, but I've never heard of anyone who owned one that didn't absolutely love it.
