    i think I’ve gone mad. As my 1911 collection nears a good “pausing” point I’m spending more and more time looking at leather.

    I scored a 5 shot IBS on eBay and a nice VM2 5” via addict gun buy.

    Then I just sent in an order for a Barranti Yaqui. And now I’m thinking I need (er.. want) a classic MS 1AT.

    On top of that I’ve got a MS order from October being worked right now For some non 1911s: VM2 for a 4” S&W Model 28 and Glock 43.

    I blame the winter.

    Anyone else in the long leather wait or recently get something nice in? Whatever you do don’t post pictures. :)

    I just ordered Ernie Hill's new Raw Speed OWB with a matching belt. Ernie said about 30 days, so not too bad a wait at all, but still seems like forever.

    Ernie's picture, with mine to follow in about a month :)

    I'm waiting on two from Cross S Bar leather. Not expensive, but an uptick in what I consider to be the most comfortable holster for me.

    The Slider . . . .

    Photos when they get here.

    Funny you should ask, waiting on a Ryan Grizzle IWB for my Kimber Micro 9. Already have two of Ryans creations so I'm sure it will be top notch. Should arrive next month some time. His stuff is worth the wait.

    I got my EDC X9 in December and ordered a milt sparks criterion the same day I got the pistol. Should be here in the next few months.

    You want to see a long wait? Order a Del Fatti. Estimates are in years, not months. Stupendous products.

    The best part of getting new leather is breaking it in.

    @RS. I had recalled you’d ordered a VM2 for your S&W 28 and I’d been wondering how that was working for you. Sounds like it shouldn’t be long now, perhaps?

    The winter is getting long, I have stopped buying gun specific holsters & look for P99 leather holsters my 1911 (s) Glock 19/23, jframe 3” & of course p99 all fit. IWB Owb. Still have to buy separate for Sig p320 (s) Should have checked before buying.

    When I called I yesterday to change my G43 from a nexus to VM2 they indicated the smith 28 VM2 was being made now. Shouldn’t be long. :). I’ll post pictures when they come. Once I get those I plan on ordering one for my P7

    More info on his Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ernie.hill

    Order at: [email protected]

    Last I saw it was only available for 1911s and Glocks.

    I found out about the new holster model through this FB group: Custom Handgun Holsters- Discussion, Sale, Trade or ISO. It's worth joining

    Happy to help.

    More info from Ernie's FB post about the new model:

    "This Ernie Hill OWB concealment holster is model "RAW SPEED". It's constructed like no other. It is double leather front and back with smooth leather next to your pistol to protect your finish, and lined with RAWHIDE. This is the magic. The structural integrity is awesome, like kydex, but the luxury of leather!!
    This rawhide liner in between the 2 layers of leather, makes it rigid so the tension screw works, is extreme lightweight, and secure. And of course, the draw is fast with the speed cut in front. I am not fond of a slow holster, lol, too many are. It's slim profile is a perfect no print EDC concealed, and draw speed perfect for IDPA. Secure and fast, the best of both worlds!
    Price is $100.00, and the quality is unmatched!

    Available for 5", 4.25", 4" 1911 and Glocks initially.
    Made to fit my 1.5" width 150CS belt.
    Email me to order @:
    [email protected]"

    I just noticed the email in the FB post is not the one he and I have been communicating on about my order, so if you don't get a prompt response maybe try the other one above.
