    And I have one of his, and it's by far one of the best I've ever used.

    Eric Larsen at HBE Leatherworks was two weeks to my door a few months ago and he may have some in stock for your pistol... Mitch Rosen was about three weeks on the 'express line'...

    Regarding the cost of premium holsters, I have noticed that premium ammo is about $.75 per round in most stores. Compared to the cost of ammunition you will use, even if it is Walmart practice ammo a premium holster is very reasonable.

    In the long run you will enjoy the holster forever, but if you get less than the best you will sooner or later be dissatisfied, and then buy the best. The cost will be more and the wait longer.

    Regards,
    Jerry

    Try Kramer Handgun Leather.

    Takes about five weeks or so. He may be a little over your budget, but it'll be worth it. Also, take a look at Mitch Rosen's "Express Line". It's quick and doesn't cost any more than a comparable Galco.

    My first holster was an IWB/OWB holster from Black Hills Leather in Laredo, TX. Good price and quality with a reasonable delivery time. What was great was that I was able to experiment with both styles of carry. I found I prefer IWB.

    I bought a 1911 a few moths ago and automatically ordered a VM II from Milt Sparks. I know the wait is 6 months and I can change my mind if necessary. I don't have a problem with a long wait. If I change my mind before the order is started I have no problems or guilt cancelling it. The holster makers aren't really losing a sale due to their waiting lists and the guy behind me gets his quicker.

    I'm a BIG fan of HBE Leatherworks and TT Gunleather, both whom have already been mentioned in this thread. I rate the HBE COM III as the most comfortable holster that I have ever strapped on and my Browning HP is residing in one right now. You can't go wrong with either one.

    I've seen a lot of good comments about UBG holsters, and see that he lists his wait time at 7-9 weeks.

    As for my recommendation, I say order a Milt Sparks holster today, that way the waiting time starts ticking off now--when you get it, I assure you that you won't regret the waiting time! While you're waiting, get buy with a cheap plastic rig...you know who they are...

    Wait times only hurt IMHO if you are waiting for your only holster. If you already have a couple for your carry gun then why get bent out of shape over the wait?

    If you need one IMMEDIATELY, then lightning arms (for high quality) or Galco for "good enough for now".

    if you're right handed, you can usually find them lightly used by cruising the various bulletin boards at decent prices and, of course, without the wait.

    if you're a lefty, like me, you'll have a much harder time finding used holsters
