Also only paid $77 with shipping for a single holster that works great as both iwb and owb. Super comfortable and will buy many more from them. Superior leather work

I really appreciate all the links and opinions that you all have posted,it looks like I have a lot of research on finding the right holster. This could be as hard as choosing the pistol? lol Lots of fine holster rigs to decide from,thanks again for the help and assistance.

Harder to impossible. I'm of the opinion the perfect or even very good holster system for any gun has yet to be made

Do you happen to remember which model you purchased? I was looking on their site and haven't found the model for both OWB/IWB

Thanks

Exodus and milt sparks are GREAT IWB holsters.
I agree those are beautiful holsters but I don't agree that you have to spend that kind of money to get a very good holster. You have to spend that kind of money to get a piece of fine leather craft on par with saddlery, but there are many good working holsters out there that are more utilitarian and easier to produce.

I prefer the crossbreed style IWB double clip kydex & leather holsters that can be had in the $40-50 range all day long online. All made in the USA.

I ordered a Old Faithful IWB about a month ago. You can get them assembled, which cost more or in assembled for about 40.00. Rather easy to assemble yourself I'm sure.
