    Try Lightning Arms Sports, search for website.

    They are in Beaverton, Oregon.

    Very nice folks, and likely to have in stock, too!

    Ditto above! www.lightningarms.com is the best place to get them. Craig and Audrey are great and they have a lot in stock too! Ordered LOTS of Milt Sparks stuff from them in the past, always happy.

    Its my understanding that LA Sports buys holsters from sparks in volume (i.e. lots of the same holster) for common applications. This helps sparks work a litte faster and lets them "load level". LAS then has a "stock" that they can quickly provide... for a premium price. What you're paying for is LAS's forsight in having ordered your holster a couple months before you got around to it and their investment in capitol between the time when they bought from sparks and took your order.

    Normally with sparks you request a holster. The request goes into a pile. Then you're request gets to the top of the pile the holster maker pulls the patterns off the shelf and makes your holster. If what you're requesting is commonly asked for he might page though the stack and pull similar order and make a couple of the same. This process takes 8 or so weeks.

    I think its a testiment to the desirability of spark's product that a guy can make a business out of cutting short the order time. God bless America.
