    Tucker HF1 - Gear Report

    Last July I ordered my 2nd Tucker HF1. This one will probably be the only BBQ rig I will ever own. I received it Monday 2-25-008. It was 7 months to the day from order & worth the wait.
    Tucker holsters are top of the line in design, workmanship, beauty & durability. I chose the Diamond Cut design w/ a Texas Concho. Died Black Cherry.
    1.5" belt loops are snug fit from the package but not so tight, like some, that the holster will not slide on the belt while rigging up.
    Dye color is rich & deep into the leather. The edges are burnished, all edges are very smooth, & evenly died black that blends & fades beautifully into the Black Cherry.
    Every border stamp is even in depth, clean, & exactly spaced. All are straight w/ the borders & stitching. Tooling wraps all the way around the holster to the back side. All the hand work is typical Tucker quality.
    White stitching contrasts beautifully w/ the dark Black Cherry.
    Holster sets on the belt at about a 15 degree cant. For me personally & most others I think, this is the preferred angle for a comfortable draw.
    Positioning of the belt loops draws the holster snuggle to the body. With a quality gunbelt there is no sag or rock on the belt at all.
    Gun retention is excellent & the draw is still smooth at presentation & return.
    Tucker is quality leather that will last for yrs & the owner can secretly get excited as he hurridly grabs for his cover vest when the wind accidently blows it, "just enough."

    Man, that's a great piece of leather. Congrats!

    Looks like we have similar tastes. I was lucky enough to get mine when the wait was just 6 weeks!

    Great minds think alike. All 1911s in this high quality leather.
    Any tooling pattern is beautiful. I really like the Black Cherry Dye.

    I love the HF1 also, but mine is pure function in all black. The unique front flap/loop really hugs the gun into your body.

    Those holsters look fantastic and the black cherry really sets off the tooling.

    My other one is plain also. It is for my SA 1911A1 Loaded. Never really understood why the had to put the "loaded" on the end. Of coarse it is loaded. It aint no paper wt.

    I don't mean this sarcastic at all...but I wish I could think of something cool to put on one. Texas has cool seals.

    Sweet holsters. I really like the basket weave. Its between that and Milt Sparks new Axiom (SP?).

    Thumbs up

    That has to be the classiest holster I've ever laid eyes on and yours is a beaut!! I'm ordering one in black basketweave for my new 629 3" S&W.

    Absolutely beautiful. I ordered the HF-1 and double mag carrier in black with Fleur de Lis border stamp about 5 weeks ago. Seeing the fantastic examples of others holsters doesn't help my patience any. My stainless SA Ultra Compact will be very happy in its new home when it arrives.
