    Whipped this up today

    I made one sorta like this for this pistol not long ago but it rides a little lower then I wanted. So I set out to make another that rides a little higher.. Came up with this..







    This last one just to show how close this holster holds the pistol to my body...



    The wings are a little wider on this one but it helps displace the weight of the pistol.. Of coarse the loops are Dave's...

    One last thing I just put these red cocobola smooth thin grips from Fusion on and they are SUPER NICE!!!!

    Looks great! The loops sure set off the holster. For some reason the pistol looks huge. Maybe it's just the photo though.

    I agree, The pistol looks HUGE, How do you conceal that monster. The gun looks almost bigger than you.

    Hey Southbound your work is impressive. Are you taking orders on your holsters because I have some ideas that I would like to try.

    I have been carrying like this for some time now and I have yet to have any kind of incident...There is a lot more retention to these rigs then you may think....

    My thought exactly. Seems like an accidental rap on the grip could knock it forward and out.

    I'll assume it's secure, but I don't think I could get comfortable with it. Looks great though!

    I can make this type of holster with a retention screw and normally I do. Either way I can make this so tight that the Kydex will lock to the trigger guard and you wont get it out short of cutting..

    Nice! I like the way the front is cut lower. Requiring less upward motion during the draw.
