New Mika IWB holster for me
I just received my latest masterpiece from Robert Mika (I think this is my fourth or fifth of his holsters), and I wanted to share it with you: it's an IWB for my CZ RAMI.
You know that I like appendix carry - it keeps the gun up front where I can keep track of it, it's easy to wear and fast to draw (even when seated), and easy to sneak-draw. Because I generally wear such a holster over a t-shirt and under my main garment, I asked Mr. Mika to make me a holster that would incorporate a sweat shield (the material he uses will not allow liquids through the holster onto the gun). I also asked him to drop the holster for carry as low into the pants as possible.
You can see he did a great job (yes, I'm still a lefty - those photos were taken in a mirror, but show the fit of the gun and holster).
It's noteworthy how Mr. Mika cut out a separate area for the rear sight. The RAMI's large rear sight used to hang up on the cheap suede IWB I had been using, drawing the holster out of the pant with it as often as not - the gun fairly leaps into my hand now . . . and the holster stays put! :image035:
Note the detailed stitchwork, though - this gun is solidly seated in the rig and is not going anyplace until you want it to.
As alluded to above, the clip Mr. Mika uses is no-nonsense - the holster does not come out of the pant when the gun is drawn.
And all this for less than the cost of a pizza supper! Who says you can't afford American-made craftsmanship anymore? If you're looking for an IWB rig or a pocket rig, you would do well to check him out. (Mr. Mika is running a bit busy nowadays; I believe it took five weeks from order to delivery.)
(And this is an entirely uncompensated endorsement - I paid full price for this and my other holsters! :hand10:)
