    They make fine western holsters, but I have experience with their other stuff.

    I have one of their pancakes for my G26.
    When I got it I found that the body shield was too large, and did not permit a full grip on the gun. You need all you can get when using the G26.
    I called them and sent it back after drawing an outline of what I needed to fix the problem. As it turned out I did not mark enough, and a friend, who does some leather work, fixed it for me.

    It is an adequate holster, but not in the league with Sparks, and other top rung makers.

    I have a friend who has a Kirkpatrick belt, and Askins style holster. He is satisfied with it.

    I think there are much better choices for concealment holsters. For great work and reasonably short delivery times HBE has some excellent reviews.
    You might also look at Fist.

    Regards,
    Jerry

    I've used Kirkpatrick leather for years for both CCW and Western carry. I've found the quality to be top shelf and a great bunch of folks to work with. They've always treated me well, no complaints.

    I have an Aker shoulder rig that I used for a S&W 4566, well built but definitely mass produced and sure not my first choice but in a pinch it did what it was supposed to. Have heard good things about the Aker Flatsider which I believe is their pancake type rig. FWIW, I'd go with them over Galco.

    I've had good luck with Aker, Kirkpatrick, O'Rourke, HighNoon, DeSantis, Safariland, Ken Null, Cobra, Bianchi, Hoffner's, and probably a couple of others I can't remember. With holsters you get what you pay for and most of the known names are top notch and back up their work. Best thing I can say is stay away from no-name crap listed on ebay and the cheap nylon stuff. Also, invest in a good gun belt to get the most out of your holster.

    Kirkpatrick Leather...I have a TSS for a Glock 30 SF. Top quality and love it while it sits on my Beltman!
    - You never need a gun until you need one very badly.

    - Running is for people who don't have ammo.
