    Looking to buy a holster for my 1911. If you have anything extra laying around and want to get rid of it let me know. I'm leaning toward a Galco concealable belt holster but I am open to others. I'm a skinny guy so I would like something held close in.

    You might want to try a Galco Skyops. I carry a full fram 1911, and it is a great holster for CC. It's not the easiest to get to, but with practice it is not bad. I love mine, and its completely concealable, most of the time my wife doesnt even know I am packing.

    I've used a Galco Stow-n-go for the past year. It is leather and cost around $25. My problem with this holster is that since its leather and well its pretty "flimsy" at entrance point of where you insert your pistol. It is near darn impossible to reholster your pistol without losseing your pants. Yeah, in a real life situation, if you ever had to draw, I guess it wouldn't really matter how long it took you to reholster, but this got annoying really fast. (One of the main reasons I started to OC, much easier)

    My brother carries a Kimber Warrior in a blade-tech UCH holster. Hes had it for about a year and has nothing put praise for them. I went to Blade-tech yesterday (In Lakewood) and got a holster made for me right on the spot. I originally wanted to get the "Universal fit" but decided I rather have one that covers the entire gun. So I ended up spending $78 after tax. I can now say it is extremely easy to reholster.http://www.blade-tech.com/In-the-Wai...ED-pr-820.html

    If you want an OC holster, I would go with a Blackhawk Serpa. A lot of us, use it.

    I definitely recommend Crossbreed Holsters. It is probably one of the most comfortable holsters I've ever used, and the customer service is excellent. Check them out at http://www.crossbreedholsters.com

    Good ideas, got me thinking anyway. I have a FIST IWB for my XD service so I was looking for OWB for my 1911 since it's quite a bit bigger.
