Addiction?



Summer Specials for just about everything, some people could confuse that with an addiction... I just call it being appropriately outfitted.

I would love to but the thread is too old for me to edit. Same basic thread with photos is available here though.

I noticed that today on Facebook (only have it for companies and no one can see me). They look great. Im just a little addicted to Milt Sparks, also. The only holsters and mag pouches that I use.

Now to figure a way to get a Heirloom Precision into one of them.

Thanks.

I often link to your thread when the "Which IWB, VMII or Summer Special?" threads pop up. I'm on your side with the less is more thought process.

5 Shot IBS holster show in optional rough-out construction



Sparks Summer Special and Del Fatti ISP - Two outstanding versions of the classic Bruce Nelson design.


Sparks Summer Special and 5 Shot IBS - The lineage of the IBS holster can be seen in this comparison photo.


The horizontal stitch that can be seen between the belt loops helps secure the loops to the holster body and prevent the rig from shifting or pivoting on the belt.


Supported by a proper belt, the closely fit belt loops help lock the holster in place.




The IBS is available both with and without a body guard/sweat shield.



I collected those pictures that Mr. Burton posted at LTW and consolidated them here.

Jason, what if we turn this thread into a Jason Burton Leather Collection post? similar to the Thad Rybka Rhodesian thread. You can post all of your holster p o r n here, no leather thong please.

Addiction is a mighty strong word. Maybe, appreciation is more accurate.

Addiction is appropriate.

I knew I had a problem when I figured out that I had more holsters than my wife had shoes.

Leather done right. As Clint Smith loves to say "this is why God made cows..." NEVER let your wife find out how many holsters you have.

Looks like about a 15 year wait in Sparks years. Sparks are my favorite.

Thanks for posting the photos JB and RT.

Just curious but why are some of the Sparks SS2's pictured above boned for the muzzle, dust cover and slide and some are not? My MS SS2 is boned as are my MS VMII and 60TK. (The SS2 has become my favorite.)

For those that want a Sparks SS2 and don't want to wait, Brownell's has them in stock with free shipping. I discovered this on the Sparks site under authorized dealers.

As a point of clarity, with the exception of the N-frame holster these are all original Summer Specials not the Summer Special 2.

In either case, the detail molding/boning you see on some of those rigs is from use (quite extensive use on the S/S in the middle of the top row). They all basically looked like this when they were new.
