    You want high quality holster with a high price and long wait?
    We can arrange that for you...

    You want high quality at at fair price and have it in 5-6 weeks?

    HOLSTERS

    My experience is not with just one or two nice holsters.
    I have purchased 30+ of these (various holsters) over the past 5 years...never a bad one.

    In fairness, I have never looked for an alligator holster with rhino trim and shark straps...that aside, Fist has an excellent product.
    If you look on the front of the site page, there are some excellent holster makers who can produce some tremendous holsters...I take nothing away from them.
    The last Blood Moon Tetrad for this millennium starts in April 2014 and ends in September 2015...according to NASA.

    Starting now you can get a Sparks in time for Christmas I think. It will be July before he is taking orders.

    There are several good makers mentioned here. I would also recommend you contact Eric at HBE and see what he can do. He has an excellent reputation as to his skill, and has a shorter lead time than Sparks.

    Another possibility is John at 5Shot. He has just turned full time, and should be able to make what you want in time for Christmas.

    H.B.E. Specialty LeatherWorks
    5 Shot Leather, LLC - OWB
    Milt Sparks Holsters

    There are other good makers, but some have lead times that would be in excess of Christmas. I think these can deliver in time, but talk to them.

    Another option is to contact Lightning Arms and see what they have in the way of quality makers holsters.
    http://www.lightningarms.com/products.htm

    Top Gun Supppy also stocks Sparks holsters.
    http://www.topgunsupply.com/holsters-milt-sparks/

    At least this is a start, and good luck finding what you want in the time frame you need it.

    Regards,
    Jerry

    Good holster makers

    My favorites are:

    Del Fatti
    HBE
    K&D
    HorseShoe Leather Holsters
    PURE KUSTOM!!
    Mitch Rosen
    Don't own a UBG but I really like Nate's work and I haven't heard any negatives.

    I am sure there are others but the one's above Nate's, I own at least one of.

    Good luck!

    The three I'd like to try are:

    1-Purekustom
    2-Fist
    3-Tucker Gun Leather

    There are allot of great holster makers oout there and more I'd like to try, but these are the ones I'd like to try first.

    Milt Sparks, UBG and TT Gunleather come to mind.

    You might as well of asked what soda is best or what car manufacture.. LOL

    I will also recommend TT Gunleather


    Just for the record:

    I only recommend TT because that is what I use. There are so many great holster makers out there.

    I'm wearing a "Crossbreed Holster" right now and I barely know its there. However, this is the only IWB holster I own. I'm not sure if they make one for your type weapon or not.

    Good luck on finding a holster that meets your needs!

    Another for TTGunleather.
    Man there are so many awesome holster makers mentioned on this board. It is hard to choose, so I end up with tons of great holsters just for the variety, and I am addicted to buying them. Heh
