As I am sure anyone who has a non standard 1911 knows, finding a holster can be difficult at best. Having one with a accesory rail as a part of the frame is darn near impossible. Yes there are the thigh position tactical holsters made by some very well known manufacturers in that industry, but for the average Tex like me....those are not what I want. Recently I found exactly what I wanted for OWB carry of my new gun.....at least at the range and any informal competitions I attend. It is a holster made for the gun and even has the Taurus name, logo and model on the holster. It looks just like a plastic holster from another manufacturer, but nowhere is their name on the holster. I like it for what I want it for. Since this is primarily a range/home defense/light competition gun, it will fill my needs. I really like the fact that it also has a push button release/retention system. The gun fits perfectly and is nice & tight with no movement whatsoever. I found the holster via the web at Glenn Zanders Sporting Goods in Baldwin IL. Here are a few pics.

Good that you're happy and secure that your 1911 wont suffer a fall out of the holster. However, the retention system on that little paddle holster won't deter an aggressive bad guy. Please watch this short video.

Oh, I completly understand that this is not sufficient for that purpose, nor did I buy it for that purpose. But I ride horses, motorcycles, and ATV's quite often with a gun and this retention system will help to keep the gun in the holster until I need it.

I've got the same thing, different name. It sticks out too far for concealed carry, though; unless you've got a parka.
