    Hello to All

    My name is Harold. My first contact with CombatCarry.com was to guide me on a holster for my new Kimber Eclipse Pro II. I read a review by Bumper on Andrews Hybrid Saddle Holster. Excellent Article. I then contacted Sam Andrews and discussed holsters. He talked me into the saddle style due to the four inch barrel. I now have it and well satisfied. Thanks again to Bumper's article. I also now have a CCW permit. I am a senior citizen, retired and now enjoying my lifelong hobby of shooting and handloading. Have enjoyed reading the forums.

    Welcome to the forum, Harold! I'm glad you found that review useful and I know you will continue to be satisfied with any holster from Sam. I was pretty impressed by Sam's process of just talking to you about your gun, your habits and preferences, etc until he gets a good grasp on what would suit you best. His quality is impeccable....

    hdwmson, Retired AND a Kimber man. I like you already. I have been a 1911 guy all my adult life. The Colt 70's series got too heavy a couple of years ago so bought myself a Kimber Ultra CDP II. I absolutely love it. Welcome to the forum. Jump right in with your $.02 worth. Here , you will find that your seldom wrong but at times your not as right as others. The people here are full of knowledge about various subjects(includeing philosophy). They will share their wealth of information and it will give you some great ideas on weapons,training,and tactics. Again,welcome. -------------
