Nixon gun leather out of Alliance Nebraska.The owb holsters are 100 dollars and constructed as well as my Mitch rosen.If I buy an owb Nixon is the only one I will buy after having most of the top brands.
For iwb I prefer the Milt sparks versa max 2 over the TT gunleather mikes special.Both are quality holsters but I do not like the way the loops are fastened to the holster on the mikes special.The screws came out and had to have him send me some more because I lost one.Got some more screws and put Loctite on them but still doesn't feel as secure as the VM2.
Whoa, looked ‘em up - very nice work.
If you look, the same screw set up is used on the Versa Max II. I’ve had screws loosen up on both holsters. Have to check on them now and then.
If you want something simple, try a Don Hume J.I.T. slide. I'm wearing one right now, with a Tucker Ranger Belt. Shop all the holsters you want, but when you do, don't forget the belt. A good belt can improve the cheapest holster, but the best holster on the market won't work well if it's on a poor belt.
I own OWB and Tuckable IWB Holsters from these makers. You can't go wrong with either of them.
Tucker HF-2 OWB is a good one. Tucker does good work. I have these for G-26, G-30, and G-19's
Also Tucker and Byrd - they make great Holsters also.
If you haven't ordered from someone yet, I would second Kramer's horsehide holsters, but my 1st choice of late has been holsters made by Ryan Grizzle. His craftsmanship is second to none, fit & finish is beyond excellent, as is attention to detail. There is a wait to get one after you order it, but it is well worth it. Flip through his gallery of customer pics on his web site, and, you find more than one that you would like to have. The High Country holster that I had made for my 26 is wonderful to wear. Look at rgrizzleleather.com
IWB Revolution Hybrid. Molds to the shape of your body and is breathable for all day comfort.

Another vote for Kramer. I have about a dozen of their holsters all in horsehide.
Those do look nice. I'm thinking of getting one of the Kramer J frame holsters now.
Haven't decided on one for the G26 yet.
Kramer makes an excellent horse hide j frame pocket holster.
In my experience I tend to go for the lower quality holster I have. I have a 150 dollar tier 1 concealment aiwb holster and a 39 dollar aiwb holster I bought off eBay. Both are kydex and I like the 39 dolllar one just as much. In fact I seem to carry it more. Now for the g19 I will always use the tier 1 as it has two clips and keeps the heavier gun in position better.

I would suggest a Versa Max II from Milt Sparks. I purchased one over 10 years ago and have never looked back.
Pure Kustom Holster Black Ops Pro , https://purekustom.com/ I searched for a long time on Ebay and picked up two years apart,one for about $50 and one a couple of months ago for $25! Black Ops Pro can be used for Iwb too but i use them for Owb. Craftsmanship is great.
I would be interested in a Kramer. They use horsehide instead of cowhide, so stronger, thinner leather.
Also, El Paso Saddlery is pretty good. I have had a couple of their Double Agent holsters.
Just a shout out to all of you who recommended a low end molded kydex holster from some dude working on his kitchen table, in response to a request for high-end leather holsters.
They may be a bargain, but all I need its the picture to not recommend them to somebody looking for a high end leather holster. Aside from the "Black Ops" and "tactical" mall ninja names, it looks like the guy doesn't even finish the edges. It takes more than a pattern and a sewing machine to be a leather holster maker.
