Recently, I received a Laredo Defender holster for my SA 1911 from Kevin Manley at KDholsters. It's a beautiful piece of leather. As usual, Kevin has done a great job on fit and finish.


The stitching is absolutely perfect.



The snaps for the belt are excellant. They do not pop loose in day to day carry.
I use 2 different belts and the holster fits both.


There's no movement or slipping of the holster and it fits very snug against my side worn in the 3o'clock position. The holster is naturally curved and I really like the feature. My 1911 is pressed against me and does not print.




The draw is very quick. Retention of the gun is snug but I think the draw is better than any other holster I have for the 1911.
This is one great product. I've been using Kevin's holsters for quite awhile and they continue to evolve into exceptional holsters for the price.

krang,

Very nice! :hand10:

Of course, I'm a little biased, as I have that same holster for my Glock 23. Like you, I'm very impressed with the workmanship, the fit, and the functionality. :biggrin2:

The primary reason I went with the Laredo Defender instead of the Eagle Defender was the ability to mount or dismount the holster without having to remove the belt.

Even with that, you have to love how the holster keeps the gun tucked into the body. I'm 5'8", and now down to 159 lbs, but have NO trouble concealing the G23 with it's double-stack .40 mag.

Do you have one of Kevin's belts? That was my other "smart move," I got the belt along with the holster.

To be "fair & balanced," I failed to get a spare mag carrier, a situation I'm about to correct! :redface:

Yep - another K&D classic. I too like that inbuilt curve.

Great workmanship.

madmike,
I use a Rafter belt. Thick and supports the 45 without sag.

Steve,

Yours should be ready soon. My order was placed just a couple of weeks before yours.

Hang in there, it will be worth the wait! :biggrin2:
