    I tried to get one once but I wasnt willing to wait 3-4 months to get it...figured unsecured pocket carry of a Ruger SR9c was not wise :) . So I got a crossbreed. but the thing I liked was that they dont take your $$ till your stuff is ready/shipping/being made....I hate places that take your $$ then want you to wait on their stuff and maybe you get it lol. Someday I will have a Milt or a R. Sherrick for my CC weapon.

    I have the Galco Combat Master holster for all of my guns...i don't understand why people pay three times as much, and wait for months/years for a HOLSTER, when an off the shelf rig from Galco, Desantis, Bianchi, etc will do just fine...and since it is a CCW rig, who is going to see it???

    I would put my Galco up against any and every custom holster made....and i have HAD several custom jobs from TT Gunleather and Mitch Rosen.....can't tell a difference when wearing any of them

    I know I'm inviting a hail of criticism for saying this, but cops, along with doctors, janitors, and everyone else, deserve what they can afford.

    Which you apparently don't know anything about.


    What did Nevermore say that is wrong? If people don't deserve what they can afford, what exactly do they deserve?

    I wouldn't expect you to get it. The two of you are pages out of the same pulp fiction novel.

    Maybe, instead, you could explain what "business ethics" you are referring to?

    I have a Combat Master and three Galco Concealables, I agree they are great holsters. I also have several that Lou Alessi made for me. If you compare the two side by side there really isn't any comparison. The ones Lou made for me, as well as the Sparks holsters I have, are better in every way. This is just my opinion of course. :dunno:

    Not only that they aren't much more money really not even twice as much. The Sparks SS is on the shelf most of the time at Brownells, for 1911s and Glocks, and is $95.00. It's the most popular and most copied IWB holster of all time.

    Galco Combat Master retailed at $82, while the Milt Sparks IBAK retailed at $95.

    One is off-the-shelf one is custom made. Easy answer for me.

    The best thing about Milt Sparks is that if there were a problem with their products, they'd handle it ASAP. Try to refund your Bianchi/Galco/whatever. Chances are the shops that you bought them from would tell you to contact the manufacturers for warranty issues and then you can wait at their own time for resolution.
