    Paddle Holster for 1911 officer model

    I am in the market for a paddle holster a 1911 officer model. Does not require a retention strap. I would like to have a paddle type holster for easy on and off and this is what I am used to carrying now. I am only after leather holsters.

    Me too! I do not have experience with them, but am going to look at Galco's website.

    Yep - Kramer MSP. I doubt you can do any better.

    I am wearing a Galco Yaqui (sp) paddle holster as I type. I have a Kimber Tactical Ultra II (3" barrel) in it. It has become my favorite holster in which to carry on my hip.

    I want something that fully covers the gun not like the yaqui that leaves the barrel exposed. i bang the gun on my office chair when sitting down.

    Yes. Or the Fist #18 Jim Murnak paddle. I've got one of these for a CZ P-01 and love it.

    Paddle holsters tend not to be the closest-fitting types of holsters, by comparison to other designs that can hold a gun quite tightly to the body. But within the paddle category, I don't think it gets better than either the Kramer MSP or Fist #18 Murnak. Comfortable, relatively easy-on / easy-off. Well made, durable.

    To paraphrase Everybody Loves Raymond: it's not about the holsters. It's the paddle that makes these things work; here's my thread on that topic (sorry, don't know how to link otherwise):

    How to spot a well-conceived paddle (holster)

    The Kramer paddle is very much off the mark; it's a 50 year old design and is only used because it's cheap to make, not because it's good. Doing a paddle properly is expensive.

    The Kramer paddle is so old-fashioned, here's the 1940s Myers version:

    Including the strip of leather that runs horizontally across the paddle, to engage the belt or waistband.
