Yes Sir!

These were recommended by an officer I know and you can wear it all day no fuss no muss.

Until you get to 5" 1911 size, the Remora holsters are the most comfortable I've used, other than a shoulder holster, & I've used a lot of holsters.

A lot to be said for particular body type/build when it comes to IWB holsters. Everytime Hunts shows a photo of his rigs I'm jealous. He has the Slim build to carry a holster well. I'm short waisted and heavier build,. I've tried 4 different IWB holsters, and none have had that " I didn't even know I had it on " feel, a couple were flat out uncomfortable. Clint Smith once opined, " A holster is not supposed to be comfortable, it's meant to be comforting ". In my experience, that's been a fact.

Crossbreed is decent. I love my old Galco Royal Guard!

I went with Don Hume. A simple, thin, well made holster with a strong clip. I wanted a holster for easy on and off.
Bought one for sig 365, ruger ec9, and ruger lcp custom. Wife has one for her lcp 2, loves it.
I’ve never been a fan of own carry, let’s just say that I’m not on the thin side.
I had a Milt Sparks for a commander. It was very comfortable but carrying a commander iwb wasn’t for me.

Smart idea.

Do as you wish, I've never worn an IWB more comfy and I've had a Summer Special II, Crossbreed Super Tuck(still have it in a box somewhere) and a few more.

There is a reason why Milt Sparks has been at the top of the game for literally over 50 years..

They pretty much wrote the book on IWB holsters. Lot of folks have copied their designs.

I have been wearing their IWB holsters since I bought my first one in 1991. They are well worth the wait, and worth every penny.

Kydex for appendix, leather or kydex for 3 o'clock for me.

Dara, Tier 1, Muddy River, Vedder, PHLster, JM Custom Kydex.

They've all worked well for me.

I have two Kusiak Leather IWB's for a G43 and a Ruger LCP. All leather, thin but strong, one click on and off, hold their shape perfectly. I carry SOB with a cant, and forget the unit is there. Right around $50 bucks. Check their website. JMHO

Leather straps are much better than steel clips.

All steel guns for me get leather, Sparks, Rosen, Kramer. I like Rosen's ARG the best along with his belt. Polymer guns get kydex and lately Tenicor gets my business with a ARES belt.

After trying several, all I get anymore is a Milt Sparks VM 2. They've been great with several different guns, and I've got another on order now.

pabucktail,

I love the VM2 I have on right now and wear every single day.

Have they given you any idea what their wait time is now?


No Ma'am. It's not my glasses that are crooked. It's my face.

I ordered last month and was told to plan on getting the holster in June/July.
