Ok guys, I'm looking for a OWB leather pancake holster. I happened to lose my favorite OWB leather holster after 10 years of hard use during my house move and need a new favorite rig. It was made by a local gentleman that no longer makes leather goods.

I was thinking about the Milt Sparks CC-AT or I-BAK, Rgrizzle countryboy, Brommeland Def-Con OWB, Del Fatti (the wait scares me), etc.

I'm looking for something that rides as close as possible and pulling the butt of the gun as much as possible.

Please let me know your feedback or suggestions.

Thank you:smile:

Edited: I'm going to use a Glock 19.

This shop often has a bit of quality gear in stock: Lightning Arms Sports, in Beaverton OR. They carry Del Fatti, Milt Sparks, 5 Shot Leather, Ritchie Leather. Galco, too, but these are being phased out apparently. Good place to go if you know what you want and can order sight-unseen.

Take a look at DeSantis. I ordered mine a few months ago...only took about one week and it wears very well.

i really like my Kramer Belt Scabbards. they are FBI-canted holsters, though, and need to be worn behind the point of the hip.

all of mine are made from horsehide, so i can't comment on Kramer's cowhide products.

Kramer's are not as detail-molded as some of the better cowhide holsters i've seen from makers like Alessi or Rosen, and in my opinion, Kramer's are not so pretty. but they are VERY durable.

I just received my Galco FLETCH for my 23C I'm picking up tomorrow. This thing is a beast! Very well made! Can't wait to test it. Not sure on concealing it. I was planning on using it for open carry. But it seems slim enough to conceal with a cover garment. I like having options.

In God and Glock we Trust

+1 on the DeSantis. Reasonable price, readily available and very good fit.

I've also been looking at getting a custom holster made and I've heard great things about the holsters from Zlogonje Gun Leathers. There are some great reviews and photos over at xdtalk.com. Prices are very reasonable too.

Lobo Gun Leather has made two "Enhanced Pancake" holsters for me. Quite happy with the price, quality and production time. His pancake features an extra layer of leather in the belt slot area which strengthens the holster and provides a sight channel as well:

Lobo Gun Leather - ENHANCED PANCAKE STYLE HOLSTER
Yes, Lobo Leather! I have an enhanced pancake with a thumb break for a S&W 686 and its fantastic. Ordered a belt and a speed loader holder at the same time. Didn't realize until I got everything in that the leather was a perfect match with the wood Talo grips that come on the gun.

Just when I think I have it narrowed down, I realize there's a million other manufacturers out there.:smile:

If you have never carried in a Galco Concealable you should try it. The forward molded design allows the butt to be pulled in to your body and it is by far the most comfy holster I own. You should try it, seriously. One need not spend $200 and wait 9 months for a sparks. Galco has you covered (and I do not get paid to say that)
