    Stumbled upon C. Rusty Sherrick recently, anybody had any experience with their holsters? If so what models and what’s the review?

    Yes, I used a number of C. Rusty’s SIS holsters. Excellent top tier quality with an extensive wait list. When I ordered my last SIS set.. it was a year+ wait for the order.

    The gear is good. The wait is long.

    Good to know, are you using the SIS for duty or concealed? Govt 1911 or other weapon?

    Some years ago I had Rusty build me a competition holster that I could also use as a duty holster, if only my agency would allow 1911's. My agency never allowed them but the holster saw some competition use before IDPA became popular...........fastest thumb break I've ever used (mostly because of the muzzle forward cant) but it could also be used w/o the thumb break by tightening the tension screw, which is how it got most of it's use. This isn't the belt I used with it but shows the cant.......
    Will hold any Govt. model with or w/o a rail and with or w/o a red dot.........Don't think Rusty makes these anymore, and remember, I'm a lefty.

    I wear a C. Rusty Sherrick modified Vertical High Ride Scabbard. I had Rusty customize the holster by including the Tom Givens Speed Draw cut out. This opens the front of the holster approx. three quarters of the way down the ejection port.
    I've been wearing this holster at work for approx. 18 months as well to several pistol classes such as the Rangemaster Instructor Development Course.

    The holster is extremely comfortable with my Hackathorn Commander (light weight) during a 10 hour day of in and out of the car. It is discreet as the belt loop in the rear (ala Bruce Nelson Professional) tucks the grip into the body. The fit is very good as the weapon remains secured during open hands training. The holster remains open for ease to re-holster. The front sight channel keeps the front sight clean for presentation. Craftsmanship is on par with some of the best leather makers. I recommend Rusty for this holster. Be patient.

    At work I wear two pistols. The Hackathorn Commander on the right is in the Sherrick horsehide. The CQB Compact LW-LR is in a Milt Sparks 55BN crossdraw. The double mag case is Sparks also. Another great holster company. JW

    Very nice looking setup, thanks for the review. I’m certainly looking for a “high and tight” option and wondered on whether this would trade off comfort, retention, etc. but sounds like you’ve had good results.

    Rusty Sherrick is an awesome holster maker, I believe he may be retired right now.

    Actually, he is in the process of making a set up for me, although I believe he took a hiatus for a while.
