View Full Version : best leather holster for range use
7th September 2005, 14:03
I need to get a holster for falling plates events at my club. I want leather, not the kydex rigs I see mostly in use. This would NOT be for carry, concealed or otherwise, outside of the club ranges. Need to accommodate a full size 1911 govt. model, finished in blue. I know to anticipate some wearing on the blueing, and that's OK, but don't want any scratches from metal buttons, rivets, what-have-you. Lean to the traditional side a bit I guess, but not hide-bound. Didn't mind the appearance of the Western/semi-western Black Hills rigs mentioned in the other thread (owner on horseback), but not sure that is the best choice for my use.

Go to www.bulmangunleather.com. Scroll down to the SBS-2 belt holster. Or, www.usgalco.com. Choose Colt 5" and look for the "Training Holster" almost to the bottom of the thumbnail pictures. I hope this helps you out.

Thanks Brian, these are both interesting choices.

Also brigadegunleather.com. I have purchased several holsters from them and am very happy. Look at their selection.

I have a Di Santis for my M1991 which I woulnd't recommend and a Bianchi Model 7 for my G20 which I would highly recommend in the forward tilt position.

I just bought a De santis #2 speed scabard. Fits tight against your body and can pull out gun easily.

My De Sanits is an 85 that was given to me - the sight part of the slide is exposed and it sits lower than the Bianchi and has less tilt.
I'm still checking out IWB's for the M1991 that I can CCW with shirt tucked in.
Rudedog, how much tilt does the #2 model have?

My holster has 3 slots 2 on the front and 1 on the rear. I can adjust it about 25 deg forward or straight up. Seems to hide the gun really well under a t shirt. I bought it at natchezz.com for 38.75 plus shipping. Really fast shipping.
