I'm ashamed to admit it, but I have a "Barbecue CCW". It's totally custom, devilishly handsome & entirely too expensive. Extraordinary measures & stupid money were required to get something I had wanted for decades that simply wasn't available off-the-shelf. It IS a fighting pistol (no engraving, precious-metal plating or pearl grips). I'm not gonna' to describe it 'cause I don't wanna' hear any "gun snob" or "elitist" comments from anyone. It's my money, I have enough to occasionally indulge myself, so mind your own damn business(es) .
I tell you this only to make clear how seriously I took my holster choice, as I decided it was almost criminal to have this quality of practical handgun stuck away in the safe. I had to now pick a IWB holster for my full-size autoloader (hint, hint). But the bluing was so beautifully deep (almost black) that Kydex was not ideal. Leather is great (I like Milt Sparks) but I'd been hearing good stuff about Remora holsters from our DC family. I'm at a local GS yesterday and, lo & behold, there's a big "REMORA HOLSTER" sign in the far corner. Seemed like an omen so I made a beeline. Met a nice guy behind the table who was delighted that he didn't have to explain any benefits of a Remora holster. In fact, I told him! He DID, however, make an interesting comment. His sales double every single time he repeats at a GS. Word of mouth sells his product & it was his 1st time in Kentucky. I bought a reinforced-top model and hurried home. I wore it all day today forgetting it was there in about 20 minutes. It stays exactly where you put it. It babies both my candy-ass AND my gun's flawless finish. It's the best (yep, BEST) $25 (I got a believer's discount) handgun accessory I have ever purchased. Go buy one & see for yourself. Now, if I can just find free .357 sig ammo (hint, hint) I'm all set.
