    Take a look at Kramer handgun leather they make the best holsters bar non. there horsehide is some of the finest leather you will ever slip your gun into. and your 1911 deserves the best. it will thank you.

    I'd recommend you consider these two:

    The first makes a neat IWB that I think is an excellent value: ://www.concealco.com/miva/merchant.mvc?Screen=CTGY&Store_Code=ACL&Category_C ode=051IWB

    in this next site, look at the "dual" version. I wouldn't wear this OWB but I think it would make an excellent IWB for a full size 1911. I also think their OWB would be good for a full size 1911.

    I recommend both of these because the quality, price, and wait time are all good. You can go to a kramer or other highend guy and you'll get a great holster but I don't believe they're always "enough" better to warrant the additional cost and the wait.

    If you're looking for something inexpensive and you're not sure of IWB try Galco. If you're sure of IWB, UBG is great
