    Summer Specials for just about everything, some people could confuse that with an addiction... I just call it being appropriately outfitted. :D

    No way. An addict is someone who is mentally and physically dependent on a particular substance. It is apparent that you are a well organized, thoughtful individual with a diversity of tastes and talents who enjoys variety.

    I've really been meaning to give one of these a try. With an endorsement like this I'm over the edge. Plastic quick draw time.

    Very nice Jason! Just ordered a Milt Sparks Criterion today, for my Government model. Now the wait begins... :bang:

    I have a 55BN vertical drop Commander length coming for my new/old Stinger from Allan Yoast today!

    I wonder if Mr Burton would hire me as his shop custodian when I retire?

    I think you need help. But who I am to talk. Instead of the proverbial drawer of holsters, I have boxes of them.

    Ok, I'm confused, which is of course my normal state. Where is the link to see these fine holsters?

    I've got the Summer Special. Now if only I could afford the Heirloom Precision 1911 to carry in it. :)

    I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure there are at least three impostors in your lineup masquerading as 1911's.

    This is my current carry gun...


    ... and this is my previously most carried gun and still likely the one I shoot the most...

    Very nice collection! If I may ask, what made you change to the SS?

    I'm not sure I ever changed or switched to it... the Sparks Summer Special was the first good holster I ever bought going back almost 20 years ago. That rig has become the standard by which I judge all others. The design is simple and works well, it's the reason I have so many of them for a variety of guns. Even though I have many other excellent IWB rigs from different makers, all of those holsters follow the same basic shape and design of the Summer Special.
