Rare bird!

I got a call from Milt Sparks today, and have a really rare bird on the way to me after the Thanksgiving weekend - it is a Thad Rybka Rhodesian holster for a Wilson EDC X9. I will post pictures of it when I receive it, but I am going to enjoy it for quite some time after it arrives. Here's a teaser photo:

I have one for my Hackathorn Special Commander, and it is rapidly becoming my favorite holster for training days. It is a good looking holster, but more importantly it is well made and appears to me to be a straight drop instead of canted. In winter months with heavier exterior clothing it is concealable, and I have worn it a few times that way (the Hack Special of mine is 9mm, and I usually carry a TSG Pro in .45). For summer carry in this part of the country, it is a no go for concealed carry but still near perfect for training in either condition.

It was made by Thad Rybka. He makes a limited number of holsters for Milt Sparks to sell, and I happened upon this one by happenstance of timing on a communication with them. If you want to order one directly from Thad, the only way to enquire is by U.S. Postal mail as he doesn't have email of Fakebook. You could always contact Milt Sparks to see if they can order you one.
