New D'Ambrose Holster




I just got this D'Ambrose western style holster for my Kimber Stainless Target II pistol. It's definitely not a quick draw holster, but I don't carry this 1911 for defensive purposes, so this holster should serve me well at the range.

Looks like a nice, quality made holster. But, for me, the 1911 just doesn't ring a "western" theme with me.. ... but it looks nice, and a nice fit..

Thanks!

Lots of Texas Rangers (and others) carried 1911 pistols in western style rigs from my era of police work and earlier.

I'm sure they did, or do.. Dont get me wrong, it looks nice with your Kimber. It is only a personal thing with me. I like both. I like the western style myself (we're from Texas too, even though we live in Michigan now), My 1911's are in more "military" style accesories, and revolvers and things we tend to lean to the western style ourselves. I just never though to mix the two. But again, it looks nice, nice fit and finish on both..

Understand perfectly, amigo!

I've carried 1911s in both settings (military and "western" civilian life) so, for me, they easily cross the line between the two.

Very cool!

Geno is currently making me a matching double mag pouch. I'll hopefully have it in a week or two.
