    If light rails were needed on handguns John Browning would have included it on the 1911.

    I suggest you take your photo's against light colored clothing and /or background. I can barely see the ones on the belt.

    I would say that look's way better than the pictures offer. A new camera is a must Greg in order to show the true quality of your holsters.

    Nice looking IWB by the way, whatcha calling that one?.

    Well I have to make a few subtle changes to the holster design to make it ride a bit lower and reinforce the mouth but it is to be called the "Raider" and will be available as shown and a tuckable with kydex clips.

    The revised version will be pretty wicked when it's done. I have about 7 orders to fill so I will work on it in spare moments. Right now I am waiting on new hides and a couple of new pistol molds to arrive (we are having serious flooding today rained like 6-8 inches last night).

    New camera is high on the to get list.

    The prototype rides so high because I am used to duty gear so when I reach for my gun it needs to be in a certain place and it affects my ride placement of prototypes occasionally.

    Greg, nice looking holster you got there. Just my 2cents on it, I like one that rides just a little lower under the belt, a little more cant and a bit lower on the beltline and that thing would be perfect for me. Please don't take this as a slam or anything of the sort. Just looking at a holster that I think is nice but can be better for the wearer. Easier to draw, less to dig into your ribs, but some people do like a higher riding pistol. My old banged up shoulders need one lower. Hope they take off like wildfires for you. Pretty soon you can join all the other holster makers here telling us how over worked you are.

    I agree that it needs to be lowered and a couple of others were kind enough to offer their suggestions as to how to accomplish that.

    My brain is hardwired for duty gear, so sometimes when I do a prototype concealment holster the ride is too high, I just expect when I reach down my gun will be in the same spot it's always been on a Sam Browne belt.

    I am working on making the improved version to actually be offered.
    reinforce the mouth, and include the holes at the bottom edges so that if you want you can get Comp-Tac clips and make it tuckable, although I will offer it that way as well.

    It may end up being similar in function to Garrity's Triskel holster, although that was not the original intent.

    If I can reach down and touch my belt and feel a grip there I'm a happy camper. With the proper cant I can carry a full sized 1911 that way. I prefer the shorter than 5" because they tend to pinch me when I sit. I carry at around 3:30 and I can see where the nice wide loops on yours will form the holster to you. Most all holsters today are some sort of a version of another. You find several that you like and see what can make them better for you. There are several that are a take off of Sam Andrews McDanial II , some add a front strap to it. There are lots of Summer Specials, all holsters that are really good, someone looks at them and trys to make it better for them. You don't find a lot people trying to improve on versions of bad holsters.

    Nice looking gear Greg!

    The nice thing about Comp-tac clips is that the 3 holes allow you to adjust ride hight.

    Good luck,
    Joe
