    So I've been trolling the local toy stores, and forums, looking for something I don't need, but gotta have,
    and out of nowhere comes the Dan Wesson Valor !

    I picked it up for a decent price and can't wait to shoot it. It fit right in, next to my PM 7.

    Now I need a good holster for it !. I usually CC my M&P or Glocks but I might switch over to the Valor when
    I got my fancy clothes on !!!!

    Any suggestions on IWB holsters........ ( no FOBUST or Uncle willeys ...lol)

    Kelley Gun Leather is getting excellent reviews from everyone who has their holsters. Steven is responsive, easy to work with, makes a quality product and has fast turn around.

    Nice looking VBOB.

    There are so many holster makers out there, it eventually comes down to personal preference and whether you are willing to wait.
    Most of the time the nod goes to milt sparks, but it comes with either a wait or finding them priced significantly higher on forum classifieds.

    I have a crossbreed supertuck but am thinking about switching to an all leather holster. I have been eying these:

    Nice pistol BTW

    Congrats on the VBOB. One of my favorite "off the shelf" blasters. I may happen to know where a new black 4.25" VM2 may be available without the 7 month wait. :biggrin1:

    Looks great, congratulations!

    I haven't tried too many leather holsters (unlike some, I don't yet have a plastic tub of sixty tried-and-rejected ones), but I like the Milt Sparks Summer Special II that I have. Surprisingly comfortable.

    Well, it's like this....some people have more money than patience. I often find myself in a position to facilitate that. :biggrin1:
