    If its off the shelf, for me its either Galco or DeSantis. Some occasions I'll get another brand, but 90% of my rigs are those two or custom made holsters.

    Galco for leather, Comp-Tac for kydex. Both will more than get the job done while waiting for that custom dream holster.

    I have Bianchi, Galco, and others. All great holsters. My favorite is made by Kirkpatrick leather in Laredo Texas. I own three and one is the Texas strongside that I use daily and have for many years.

    Off the shelf? Hmmmm Galco for leather and probably Blade Tech for Kydex. A lot of folks like Comp-Tac for Kydex but they don't make any IWB holsters for guns with rails. That rules my new Sig out.

    Highnoon has one or two off the shelf holsters that work very well. Great price, and fast delivery too.

    I will buy a Kramer. Although, not truly "off the shelf" they are readily available and good quality.

    There are very few factory made concealment holsters that I'd trust my life to...
    That's GOOD advise! I called Lightning Arms today looking for a VersaMax-II for my new SIG P-220 SAS and Craig hooked me right up!

I have always bought Don Hume open tops in the past to get me bye till the custom comes, then the Hume becomes the hiking, bush beating holster.
    Why don't you post what your looking for in the For Sale section with a WTB with model of gun and what type of holster your looking for. We all have lots of holster in the "holster box" and some people might want to sell. Just a thought.

    By the way, Highnoon has about 10 different holster for right handers they ship immediately. Hope that helps.
