    For inexpensive holsters, try these guys....

    Ever since Uncle Mikes / Michaels of Oregon holsters have been around. I have been a fan. They were cheap in price and would hold up to play. But the past 5 years, I have seen them go up in price continually. So they aren't that cheap anymore....
    Enter Protech. They are Alabama grown. They prob been around a year. They are inexpensive to own and are just as well made (or better) as uncle mikes / michaels of oregon.

    In fact Art I have two Protech ankle rigs - one of which suits my R9 rather well at times.

    I do not often these days like to stray much from leather but - yes, these guys do make some reasonable products.

    And hey - it's time us EST guys were in bed LOL!

    Kevin...you're wild!

    I'm sticking with high quality leather also.
    I was never all that enamored with Uncle Mike's holsters.
    To be fair...I've not tried anything of their holsters recently.
    Their "paddle style holsters" were bad enough to chase me away forever.
    Just my opinion that all they ever had going for them "advantage wise" was the low price.
    The protech holsters look like they might be a bit more functional for good concealment.
    I'll stay with leather though.
    Why should I move backward at this point in my life?

    So how is not sticking with leather in holsters moving backward? Leather is nice but leather in holsters sure is not the direction that modern holsters are moving.

    It's the non-leather holsters that are moving forward.

    Yes, with the tactical mall ninjas!

    I like leather best.

    That's because leather holsters have been perfected and thus don't need to change.

    Talking

    The Uncle Mike's Paddle.
    I dunno...some people LOVE them so...I guess that just proves that I don't know as much as I think I do about holsters...either that...or they don't.

    Thumbs up That's OK with me.

    Fobus must be selling holsters and I guess that Uncle Mike's is selling them also...or they would both be out of business by now.

    It's just my personal opinion that there are other better holsters available for serious everyday concealed carry.

    It's not my obligation or my desire to decide what exact type holster any other person should carry their firearm in.
    That is (of course) their own personal decision...as it should be.

    Anybody can always feel perfectly free to disregard my opinion or any other personal opinion.
    We all should cut our own path through this world.

    I am definitely looking to leather for my compact 1911, however, I carry my Sig232 in a Protech and it is fairly comfortable.

    The metal clip on the Protech is super tight and sometimes gives me fits.
