I was looking for a good OWB holster that I could use with IDPA and was recommended to try the Garret Industries ST Champion. It finally came the other day and I must say I am very impressed. These holsters are kydex with a leather lining. The craftsmanship is outstanding. The adjusting screws do a great job of holding the gun inside while at the same time it's easy to draw and return the weapon. As the name says it is pretty damn quiet when I take the gun out. When it goes back in there's a last second little grab of the gun by the holster. Hard to describe any any other way. The cant can be adjusted as well.

Some may have seen my post regarding the leather dust created by my guns front cocking serrations. It worried me at first mainly because there was so much of it on my gun. It's starting to slow down now and read posts that said it was normal and not to worry. Okay, I won't.

Anyway, here are some pics. Hope you enjoy them.

Forgot to post the front site clearance. The extra tall option was chosen because I read that was the way to go.

Nice holster.

Reminds me allot of mine. (which i love)

Mine was made by Langdon Tactical.
Back when he used to still shoot for Sig.

I got mine for my Sig226

holster looks almost exactly the same.
Except inside was swede leather.
And belt part was hard leather.

had the best of all worlds if you ask me.

Any its nice to see someone else making something close
have not seen anything close since he left sig..
