Just picked up a Commander at the gun show today. Looking for a IWB holster. I currently use a DeSantis Cozy for my Defender and Officer. Hoping to make this my primary carry gun. Any suggestions.

Milt Sparks Summer Special is the standard by which all are judged, but he has other designs that may be better for different people.

I prefer the Summer Special.

Having not yet orderd a summer special, I use a Milt Sparks Versa Max II and love it. It has worked very well.

And here's what that looks like (disclaimer - the holster is for a 5-inch model, since those get carried as well):

1911's beg for leather...back when I carried one I went with the Sparks summer special for my 5' and the VMII for my CCO:

Les Baer "Stinger" in VMII:


Baer Concept V in Sparks SS:



The VMII is positively one of, if not the most comfortable IWB holsters I've ever worn.

SSII?

ETA: No, that's not a Sparks is it?

Sparks Summer Special or their Watch-Six (which appears they no longer offer) or their VMII in horse hide.

Another vote for the sparks summer special II. I know the versa Max is a good holster, but I prefer the summer special because it's less material inside the waistband.

Have you worn a VMII? I felt the very same way you do, until a friend let me wear his for a day, the VMIIs & Watch-6 are actually more comfortable for me than my SS's (and they are thinner).

Found the same here also OD. Used the s/s for years, then tried the vm2 and for iwb, it's superior to the s/s in comfort for me as well. But I got away from iwb when I left the commie state for the land of the free. lol

Yep, yep, yep. And horse hide is THE choice (IMHO). :yup:
