    K&D Laredo Defender just arrived!

    My lefty Laredo Defender for my HK P7M8 just arrived!
    I'm wearing it, along with a maniacal grin, as we speak.

    As soon as my wife gets home we'll take some pictures.

    It rides high and snug. The craftsmanship is gorgeous.

    VERY NICE looking holster!! That is Kevin's quality on display. What is the trim leather?
    You will enjoy wearing that piece of art for years to come.

    Ron,

    Black sharkskin.
    Forgot to mention that.
    I'm amazed at how thin Kevin managed to make this holster while maintaining the integrity for support and one-handed re-holstering.

    Me too, his holsters are not bulky at all but are sturdy.
    Congrats, that looks awesome! Kevin does some great work!

    Great holster! Mine should be here in the next two weeks. I can't wait. I'll probably go ahead and place another order when I get this one and maybe it will be ready in early 2008. Hope you enjoy it.

    Nice holster. Kevin is a real artist with leather.

    I check my bank account every morning hoping to see a K&D charge. I have, if I counted correctly, 6 items on order. Unfortunately, only two are holsters. The others are items that Kevin and I have pretty much designed together. Some of these may show up in his regular product line one of these days, but right now they require some parts that have to be manufactured. So I just sit back and wait until Kevin finds someone who can make and provide the parts at reasonable prices. The nice thing is that I don't have to pay until he succeeds in getting the parts. The bad thing is that I need to order some more holsters and keep waiting to get one thing in before placing another order. Ah, well. I do get some pleasure out of seeing that someone else has gotten a fine piece of gun leather.

    Congrats.

    Nice!!!! I have one ordered for my new Walther P99 Compact. I called Kevin yesterday and was told I have another month or more to wait, but it is worth the wait. I love not having to take off my belt to get the holster on and off.

    I like his work so much I think I'm going to go ahead and order a Maverick Defender for the same handgun.

    I wore my Laredo out last night: dinner (Bigz Burgers), errands (Walmart of course), and a late night walk with the dogs.

    Although I feel like it's completely obvious I'm carrying, even my wife assures me it conceals well. No more using the urinals at restaurants and stores for me!

    Just to restate, I can't believe how thin this holster is. As an added bonus, my next-door neighbor brought some old holsters by for my to use as I see fit. A little bit of modifying and I'll have some back-up holsters.
    :)

    Hey arawn, looks good! Hey how does it hold the butt up against your side? Does it pull it in tight?

    I have one of these in x-draw on order, can't wait. I ordered mine middle of August, so I don't think I'll get it until December.

    Jonesy,

    It does indeed, even when under only a large tee-shirt. I'm still trying to figure out the best position for concealment and comfort, however.
