    Bluegrass/ Fist/ TT

    Sent Bluegrass an e-mail with two Questions and never heard back from them.
    ( Maybe due to Holiday ) but am now leaning toward the Fist #11 close cropped combination IWB/OWB .
    Does anybody have any feedback on the #11 from Fist?
    Three two four week wait for $80 dollars after the upgrades I want.
    TT gunleather also has nice stuff.

    Fist

    All of my CCW holsters are from Fist, as well as my spare mag pouches. They are great to deal with and I've always had great service.

    Bluegrass makes good leather - I have a Mason-Dixon. I sent him an email a week or so ago and got an automated response saying that he was taking time off for the holidays... give him a couple days, I'm sure he'll get back to you.

    I just recently received a snap-on belt holster from TT Gunleather. Beautifully made product!

    Bluegrass

    Thats what I figured also, and I think I have answered my own Question anyways. I have narrowed it down to the Fist combination or the TT IWB. I really like the TT quality and the Fist options IWB/ OWB just by removing loops.

    I have several Fist holsters. Whether a specific one's going to be the right choice and fit for you depends on you, your body shape, what works for you. But Fist is great to deal with. No problems, ever. I have yet to have a poorly-made one, or one that didn't function very well. I doubt I'll ever have customer service problems with them.

    I'm happy with my TT holster. I posted a first impression here.

    I had the close-crop basic for my xd40 and I sold it. It's the only holster I've been unhappy with from Fist. It being close-cropped, it just fit too tight. Probably depends on body build.
    I have the Fist #14 combination for 4 of my guns and I love them all. excellent holster. I just recieved 2 from Fist and it took almost 7 weeks.

    I have an OWB and mag/light holder for my Kimber Ultra. I love it. Tim does amazing work and did a lot to help match my Beltman belt.

    Go here for pics. http://www.defensivecarry.com/vbulle...most-here.html

    Some people don't like him because of the similarities to other manufacturers. I'll buy from him again in a heartbeat.

    Fist #14 was the other holster I was looking at.

    Once I tightened my belt, it seemed to snug the holster too much and made it very difficult to draw from. May be my body build. I'm pretty much average size with justs a little "extra" around the waist.
    The #14 is perfect for all my guns. I've got it for my semi-autos and my revolvers.

    I've had a couple of holsters, previously, where this was the case. It definitely varied by where on my hip I had it. For example, it might be fine at 8 o'clock (lefty), but pinch the holster mouth closed if at 9 o'clock at the point of the hip. Same holster with a stout, reinforced mouth might not do that.

    I'm sure it heavily depends on body type and positioning (ie, where are your bumps and curves), and partly on the holster's design. Look for any feature that helps with reholstering, such as a reinforced mouth. Fist offers this on many (most) of their holsters as an option.

    I just purchased an IWB, OWB, double mag carrier, pocket holster and belt from TT Gunleather. Once I can get pics, I will post them. My first impressions are nothing short of stellar workmanship on Tim's part. I own Sparks, Broomland and several other special makers from this and other sites. I would put his work right up there with the top makers, and since you don't know me, I have VERY high standards. It takes a lot to impress me..and his work does/did. Pics will be up soon.
    I know, I know, you are smarter than me..just ask you..

    I have over a dozen holsters by FIST and have never, ever been disappointed.
