    Don't carry my 1911 enough, want to into the habit more often. What type of holster does glock talk recommend? OWB would be how I carry it.

    The best holster is the one that you:

    A. Can afford to buy.

    B. Fits your needs.

    Following those rules I normally will pick up a Fobus Paddle holster(I know everyone hates em' but they work ok for what they are) and then I can shop around on E-Bay or LGS for something better.
    I really need to get up to Muddy Pond and get a double shoulder of 10oz Oak Tanned leather from the Mennonite's so I can start making my own holsters again. Need to get some more waxed thread too. That's the best way to get a holster, that way you can design it just the way you want it. :cool:

    Milt Sparks 55BN works for me.

    I made a copy of the Milt Sparks Summer Special that worked pretty well. If you can afford the Real Deal that'd be a good IWB holster to get.

    I've been carrying my 92 in one for almost six years now, fantastic holster if you want IWB.

    That's a BIG gun to carry IWB. I used to own one, and almost always carried it in a shoulder rig.

    You sir, are the man.

    Yes indeed! The 1911 and the VM II are a phenomenal combination.

    YIKES!!!! You are correct. I read the OP too fast.

    My apologies for giving an incorrect answer.

    OWB I prefer the Milt Sparks 60TK also used to be known as the RoadRunner.

    Sorry

    Sean

    I think the Axiom is the best designed of the Sparks OWBs.
