Welcome!

Got a few top contenders? Chances are somebody around here either has the holster or has had it.

Chad Kleinschmidt, He is from Little Falls. Very great guy to have as an instructor. well worth the money.

As far as contenders. Versa Max2 is one i like, looks like it could be confortable to wear. and i was looking for something along the line as a Summer Comfort. But dont want to wait 6 months.

We've got a couple of Milt Sparks owners around these parts...I'm not one, but I've heard nothing but amazing reviews.

Now, that said...

We've got a few great IWB custom holster makers around these parts too.

If you're looking for that tight of a turnaround, I'd see what Streichers has in stock...

Barring that, Schleif Leather does 1 week turnarounds. The catch is that if he doesn't have a dummy gun, you have to get your gun to him, and he's a bit northeast of the Cities.

If you decide you can bear a longer wait, Srigs' (Sideguard Holsters) IWB's are gorgeous.

Welcome and as a Versa Max owner I must say it's an awfully comfy holster for carrying around a 1911 when paired with a good gun belt. I got mine off ebay last year, a word of warning Milt Sparks holsters go for nutso prices on ebay. I'm a lefty so it's not so bad. Srigs builds a really nice holster and might already have one made for you because he builds a lot of stuff for gunshows.
