    Why spend $75 to $100 on a leather holster when a $35.00 one will do the same job and last just as long? Just check out Ebay.

    The same reason I would spend $2500 on a 1911 when I can get one that does the same job for $500. Quality.

    ^ For me, it's even more than that....

    If I can actually find a $35 holster that did just as well as a $75 or $100 holster, I ain't stupid, I'd definitely go for it.

    But I have yet to find one.

    The holster I end up actually carrying with or otherwise using tend to average around the $70 mark for Kydex rigs, and $180 to $200 mark, for leather.

    For me, it's more than just about pretty stitching or boning. It's more than just nicely formed lines on a Kydex piece. It's about the holster actually having been designed so that it offers the blend of concealment and usability that *_I_* want.

    And that takes money..........unfortunately! :lol::animlol:

    $75 to a $100 or more may seem like a lot at first, but there is no way a mass produced holster will fit you like custom leather. I have suggested TTGunleather ( Tim Turner) to anybody looking for a holster. Why? Because I have ordered 3 mag holsters, an IWB and an OWB holster as well as a shark dual ply belt from him. The quality is outstanding. That being said, throw all that out the window and here is why a custom holster is the way to go. All my orders were discussed on the phone prior to any work starting. All conversations were 15 minutes or longer directly talking to Tim. He wants you to have exactly what you want. Leather thickness, type of leather, reinforcement, ride height, firearm carry cant, possible belt loop position changes, etc.

    If your going to the trouble to pick out an EDC, purchase it, train with and carry it with you always, dosen't it make sense to have a carry rig that lets you continue on with your day while forgetting you are packing?

    Pretty good stuff, starts just over $55 ships in 5 weeks or so.

    That being said, I've never ordered something like TT discussed above.
