    Designed by Bruce Nelson, endorsed by Clint Smith, it's not the latest design but has been a standard by which all (more) modern IWB holsters are measured. Mine was built for a Colt Officers Model (3.5") so, yes, my SS holster does go past the Springer Micro Compact by .5". I believe the SS II is now available expressly for 3" models because there's so many 1911 manufacturers builting them. Print-through is not a problem, COMFORT is the deciding factor. I'll see if I can find the nice digital camera I bought for Mrs. Ghost Tracker. She might let me use it. "1911 friends don't let 1911 friends wear...Kydex"

    I carry appendix style with my GALCO Ultimate Second Amendment. They cost about $ 65.00. I normally wear shorts and T-shirts or Polo shirts. The gun (Kimber UC II same sized as yours) cannot be seen (at least on me - I am about 6'2 and a fairly slim 200 lbs).

    I use a Desantis Mini Scabbard for my Defender Fits like a glove about $45.00 on the street.

    I was originally gonna get a crossbreed... I had one for my XD but it just seemed big and cumbersome... maybe it was the XD's fault.

    My normal attire is jeans or shorts and a tshirt so i was thinking IWB but I'd be open to OWB if it can be worn under a regular tshirt.
    ...my budget is $100 or less

    I was also looking at milt sparks summer special but didn't see that they made them for 3 inch 1911's

    for fun here are some pics of my new gun

    I love it man! You know it's a sweet gun when you see the crossing cannons!
    Ccccccc what? Ccccccccccc Hawks!

    If money is tight, consider a Don Hume IWB with the thumb break. I have one for my S/A Micro and I forget I have it on. Check if Gunner's Alley has them in stock.

    By the way, the Micro is a great gun, mine didn't like Wilson Combat magazines for some reason, but is happy with the S/A and Kimber mags.

    I have the same gun and use a MaxCon V. It is a great holster. Might need a few more bucks though, but it's worth it.
    Walk steathly - and carry a big Springfield.
