Over the years I've had a few holsters that I've used.

The most comfortable IWB holsters I've been using are the Sparks SSII for my commanders.

I've also been using Criterions for 5" & 3" 1911 as well as one for G19.

I'm needing to knock off a few pounds and make room in the old waistline for the IWB stuff.

Over the winter I'll be using some OWB scabbard style stuff I have, but I'd rather have a Kramer horsehide.

Awesome. That's what I enjoy seeing....a gun that is carried, used towards good ends and it does it's job well.

I'll bet that 6" length is really the ticket in the 10mm.

I've been thinking about holsters for a 3" 1911 that I want to start carrying soon. Those Lo Pro's are looking interesting.

Wilson also has a Lo profile III for the 3-3.5" models. Fits my Sig 1911 Ultra Compact perfectly. Pictured earlier is the Lo Profile II for the commander length 1911.

I prefer leather OWB for comfort sake and my go to leather providers are Privateer leather and Warbird leather. Both quality products, with superb customer service.

I recently got a BlackArch Protos M IWB for my G43. Am impressed, the most comfortable IWB I’ve tried. Will be getting another for either my P320 c or my P10c soon.

Whatís your edc Holster

Milt Sparks Criterion for a commander 1911. I have found it to be superior for me and my body type over anything else, including an SS2 or VM2. Looking at this picture makes me want to order another one in another color/trim combo.

For my 1911 style pistols (and the High Power) I prefer the Bianchi Carrylok. I have two sizes; one for Government sized and the other for Commander sized gunís. Depressing the lock with the trigger finger on the draw is simple and quite easy to adapt to.

erf7, How do you like that MGL belt. I have read that they are to thick to thread through some belt loops.

I have a question for you as that you own two of the models I am looking at.
From looking at the pictures can you confirm the following....
Criterion with a "slot" in the rear looks like the butt might stand off from the body where the VM2 with the slot in the front would hold the butt closer to the body for less printing.
Thank You
Happy New Year...

I've tried a few but finally settled on the famous 1791 pancake holster.
Great quality and workmanship, USA company owned by veterans, decent price and matching accessories (mag holsters etc).

Thanks. I'm guessing the models for sale on the WC are ready to ship ?

Sure is a fast way to get a good holster.

The natural rough-out with shark loops & patch looks super.
