    New to forum and have a question

    Hello, I can't believe I haven't found this site sooner. What a great place. Anyway I have a question. I have a Les Baer Thunder Ranch Special full size 1911. I am wanting a OWB holster that would conceal under a untucked t-shirt or dress shirt. I have read alot of info and narrowed my options to Milt Sparks 60 TK or a Alessi CQC. I was just wanting to know what you guys thought of these from personal exerience. If you have another holster suggestion Please let me know. Thanks for your time and info...

    I occassionally carry my Colt Commander in a Sparks 60-TK. It works OK for me, although it carries the pistol a little higher than my usual carry rig, a Sparks Summer Special.

    I usually reserve the 60-TK for cold weather, when I wear a heavy coat.

    BTW, welcome to the forum.

    Welcome to the forum.

    I have a left-hand (weak side for me) 60-TK for my Browning HP. I purchased it as a training holster and just-in-case I ever injured my gun hand/arm...I can holster up and carry anyway being trained in using my weak hand.

    As Terry, above, stated it rides higher than other holsters. It carries very well and keeps my BHP flat against my body.

    Hello



    Can't comment on those 2 rigs you mention but browse some of the other holster-makers sites - one rig that comes to mind which might suit you is the Defender from http://www.kdholsters.com/

    For OWB, I'd consider Tucker's HF1 or Brommeland's Def-Con. I have both and quality and functionality are outstanding.

    Kramer belt scabbard

    A very good OWB holster for 1911 carry is the Kramer belt scabbard, which comes in either horsehide or cowhide. The horsehide version, which I have, is made of a dense, strong leather which doesn't sag over time and holds the gun very tight against your side.

    Welcome...

    from Central Florida!

    I keep talking about FIST, Inc., and I just received two more Fist holsters in yesterday's mail for a Glock-36.
    One IWB with a 15% forward cant, and an SOB(IWB)...both are great quality, just like the other 2 doz. that I have.
    Search the web site...it doesn't cost to look.

    Stay safe...
