I'm looking for a nice leather holster for my 1911. I'm not LEO, don't have a CCW, I don't shoot in any events. Just looking for a nice holster to carry my weapon when appropriate. Would like to stay under $100 if possible.

Wilson has a nice looking adjustable one. Pricey though.

Galco combat master 212. Very nice OWB leather holster for the money. ~$60

Below is a link for one listed at $69 but you can get them a little cheaper on EBay.

I just ordered a Don Hume. Good price. Long wait to get it as it's for a Sig1911 and they don't stock them. A standard 1911 though, I would imagine they have in stock. It looked pretty good and worth the money to give it a try.

Just another avenue for you to investigate on your own.

I use teh safariland 586 and love it. Very comfortable for a paddle holster and has great fit and finish.

I also suggest looking at Galco, lots of option, almost too many!

I'm looking at this one now but I haven't decided whether I will get or not: http://www.usgalco.com/HolsterPG3.asp?ProductID=3803&GunID=173 not available until end of March anyway.

There are a lot of options for a belt holster though, all their holsters are made with concealment in mind however. So if you want something exposed outside of a shirt and not wearing a jacket I'd look at something along these lines:

http://www.usgalco.com/HolsterPG3.asp?ProductID=2406&GunID=173
http://www.usgalco.com/HolsterPG3.asp?ProductID=155&GunID=173
http://www.usgalco.com/HolsterPG3.asp?ProductID=459&GunID=173

Those are all belt holsters, there are many paddle holsters (and more belt holsters) and the Yaqui holsters.

Galco rocks but you'll pay a premium for those suckers. I like the http://www.usgalco.com/HolsterPT3.asp?ProductID=861&CatalogID=4 and

I carry in a GALCO V Hawk - - I think it was like $75 - - all leather - IWB - very comfortable and doesn't have that "plastic" feel.

I never suggested to OP to buy an IWB holster. I said I owned an IWB holster from El Paso saddlery and that it is a good holster.

The link explains.

I'd suggest going with something from Tim Thurner, he built most of my holsters, and his Stronghold holsters are great too...and you can help support the CA and Lake county economy by buying from Tim :)

How childish can you be? :facepalm: I can ask you the same question.

To OP: These might suit your taste better.

Bianchi 19L might fill your needs; thumb-break for retention and suede lined to protect the finish from scratches. Good outdoorsman holster. Midway USA carries them, as do other suppliers.

Never used that model before, but I do have the SRB model.

I dont think you cant go wrong with Blade Tech holsters. That model does look pretty nice and price seems very affordable.
