    Milt Sparks 55BN Holster?

    Ordered one of these for my Beretta 92FS. The other MS holster I've had was an IWB for a 1911, and loved it. I've got a 16-20 week wait ahead of me so I thought seek opinions of this holster in the interim.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    +1. Great holster. My favorite for my 1911. This will be a lifetime purchase.

    This is the continuation of the Bruce Nelson Professional, originally designed by the late, great Bruce Nelson. It is an excellent OWB rig, and has been copied, with varying degrees of quality, by many makers. My Bulman FDS holsters are derived from the Professional, but with the forward edge tilted down, rather than the rear tilted up, which better fits me when toting a full-length 1911. The Galco Avenger I used for years to carry a BHP, and then 1911 pistols, is a quite decent copy of the Professional.

    I find a holster of this type, with one tunnel loop and one outboard loop, to be more comfortable than "pancake" holsters, which have two outboard loops. This makes sense, due to my being on the slim side. (A good explanation of this can be found on Matt Del Fatti's site.)

    Thanks, Rexster, for the reply. I'm looking forward to getting the 55BN, but after doing some further reading, I decided to hedge my bet and add a 60TK to my order. This holster is supposed to ride higher, so getting both should give me more latitude when dressing to conceal.

    Regards,
    Tom
