    if he was lucky and knew where to get one.
    I found polizei1 his VMII pretty quickly.

    I don't think he'd be able to find a good leather holster by Christmas because of the lead times.

    Sparks VM2, but you will pay +$100 to get one now. 7 month wait from Sparks.

    Jeez oh man!! I cant believe the prices on some of this stuff!! Thank god i use kydex lol! I know there is a difference in quality, but even as far as IWB goes, i havent found anything more comfortable than the CBST, now i use the shielded holsters though from a forum member which are essentially the same thing. Don, you'll have to let me tote the KC around for a day and prove me wrong :)

    :rofl:

    I had a 5" VMII and found that it was too long for me to comfortably carry since i drive a lot. sold it for twice as much as i paid for it. So i pretty much got my 4.25" VMII for free (which i got at the same time) :supergrin:

    I'd recommend looking at http://www.5shotleather.com/owb.htm

    High quality at reasonable prices. Not sure what his backlog is though. I have a CBS model that is going up for sale.
