I have a couple of Summer Special II's but I also like the 55BN's. Good holsters.

The Criterion about 80% of the time.

Criterion for semiautos and VM 2 for revolvers.

I just got a Summer Special with single loop for my Ruger LCR.

I've sworn by the VM2 for years. Now I find myself slowly replacing them with Criterions.

Iíve really enjoyed looking at the photos posted and thought Iíd add photos of my two favorite Sparks holsters. The 55BNSH was made for Wilson by Sparks.

Received both the Criterion and Axiom holsters yesterday. In a week I will let you know which is my favorite and why. Then, hopefully a month later if I can remember, I will re-evaluate and express my thoughts again.

I love the Axiom for OWB. I wear the VM2. I would like to order the Criterion in the future, seems like everyone likes it a little better than the VM2.

Milt Sparks belt is the best I've ever worn. I wear mine everyday even when I'm not carrying.

I am like pipeguy, love the sharkskin.

Very nice, a shark belt is going to be my next Sparks order. As usual, the day after my current order arrives.

#1 AT is my favorite. This is their newer version, but I think I like the older lined version better.

Thats the same position I find myself in. Never would have thought that I'd be getting rid of my VM2's, but I too am replacing them with Criterions.

Have you looked at or considered the Nexus... They are similar but I believe the Nexus to be an improvement over the WS. Biggest difference in the two is the molding on the Nexus is mostly on the outside so it;s even more comfy than the WS was. And the neo magnet loops are tops!

Just curious what others have as their favorite Sparks holster(s)
The Criterion: not sure that counts as they are my only Milt Sparks holsters.

Why?
Comfort.

Concealability.

Easy of mounting and unmounting.

The last is impotant to me because, at first, I used a different holster on days that I expected to mount and unmount. With a little practice, now it's the Criterion essentially every day.

I agree. Their newer ones look cheaper-made.

The Nexus for me. Without the reinforced mouth it's thinner than the Criterion, and I've never once had a problem with mine closing up on me.

Add a couple of the incredibly well-designed S-4C mag pouches and hang it all on a Sparks belt, and that's about as good as it gets as far as I'm concerned.

I must agree that the S-4C and D-4Cís are the best magazine pouches made.

I agree. This is my older version which I prefer to my newer one for a Commander for conceal carry. I'd pay for an older one. Perhaps Davis?

They still make the older version of the 1AT if you prefer it. All you have to do is ask.

For that you would have to ask them. I don't make those decisions anymore.
