^^^ Oh, man, those look great!

This holster is working so well for the BHP (wearing it even now as I type) that I’ve been pondering one for a P225 or even a P229 - seeing your SIGs in one will probably force me to make the call and place a new order! Smile

Shark trimmed IWB from TT Gunleather. It's very comfortable and the quality is top notch.

Barranti Summer Classic IWB and related leather sized for a 5-inch S&W Model 27. I’d never argue that an N-frame like this is mainstream for IWB carry; however, it can be done.

Again with the 5” S&W Model 27, this time with a “Dirty Harry Shoulder Holster” from Ruffiano International. Yes, I got a severe urge for one of these after repeated screenings of 1971’s classic “Dirty Harry” haha…

Hey, thank you dking271 and Oaklane!

I hear you re: that RSO leather. I’d had one before (part of a mass-order from Alan Yoast Firearms and unwisely sold it. About the time I was able to re-purchase that Caspian 1911, Karl Beining / KGB Customs offered some Sparks leather with their brand.

Ethan Douglas / Douglas Leather is a young, up-and-coming leathercrafter clearly cut from the mold of the likes of the late Bruce Nelson. I have a few pieces of Douglas gear now; that single magazine pouch is becoming one of my favorite OWB magazine carriers.

In another thread of a member’s Milt Sparks holsters, I mentioned a few that I had buried in a collection of holsters. I love the craftsmanship of fine leather holsters almost as much as the firearms that they carry. Over 30 years of carrying concealed firearms, I’ve ordered holsters from Milt Sparks, R Grizzle, TT Gun leather, Kramer and, many others. The four above I will single out because everyone I have dealt with at the above companies have been some of the most gracious people with their time and assistance. This thread is for anyone who’d like to display their custom holsters and the firearms they carry.

I’ll start with a few Milt Sparks holsters I had made for my S&W 3” CS-1 686 revolvers.



What do you use as a light box?
