5Shot, at the 1911 forum, just sent me a new holster. It's for my 1911 SA GI .45
He doesn't have a website yet but here's the original thread.
http://forums.1911forum.com/showthread.php?t=115742

Here's the review. Had some time to work with the holster. It's loosened up some after I wrapped the gun in a couple of layers of wax paper. The workmanship is top notch. Stitching is tight and even over the entire holster. Belt snaps are perfect for my 1½ Rafter belt. The holster molds to my hip and the gun lays tightly against my forward kidney area. There's very little noticeable bulge or distortion in the belt area. The draw is tight do to the newness of the holster but with the forward cant, it's very quick and smooth. I've had surgery on my stomach in the last week but the rig is very comfortable in a sitting position. Standing or sitting, nothing is digging into my side or back. Since I have no "love handles" :hand56: the holster is one of the most comfortable I have. 5Shot, this is 1 great holster. My congratulations on a fine product. It was a pleasure doing business with you and I am more than pleased with the holster. You are a true craftsman. Thank you.

Very well executed! A high, tight secure ride. 5Shot is quite talented. If you can, please invite him to frequent this forum as well as 1911.

BEAUTIFUL work!

As I say often - we are all but spoiled with such a plethora of fine holster makers around.

Super Nice piece of leather with a beautiful, deep, rich finish.
Made Even Better Looking with that perfect accent of Exotic Lizard Skin. :biggrin:
I just couldn't say a bad word about it ~ it's an awesome piece of work.
And...it's nice to see some pics of a masterful leather holster being properly worn.

That is a great looking holster, 5Shot. The finish and what details I could see look very well done! Good luck with sales and when you get a website up, post it in the "Related Links" area above. I think you should do very well. :wink:

P.S.
Shoot me a PM with a price when you get a chance.

ya know i forgot to comment early it is a great looking holster... are ya gonna make left hand models?
Actually - I will make you anything you want. I don't think I have made the same holster twice in the last year. Everyone wants something a little different, or something similar to so and so's.

I have done full coverage shark, shark trim, stingray trim......

Let me know what you are after, and I will accommodate you.
