Sweet! And the arched MSH and mag-well look great!

I really like the muted color of the prairie rattler. It just looks comfortable.

Have you shot it yet? I bet it feels like a well broken-in pair of boots.

Greg, is that a Versa Max II? How does it carry? I've heard they are one of the most comfortable IWB holsters out there.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

These things feel great. Really fill the hand. I've got em on two so far. All the others will be skinned eventually.

Yeah, its a Sparks VM. Absolutely, the most comfy IWB I've worn, and I have a box full. I got it for my Kimber 4", but it works great for the Defender also. I carry at about 4 o'clock and can wear all day with no problem.

Yep, Went to the range this morning to test my new STI and put a few rounds thru the defender while I was there. Feels sweet, even with +Ps.

It's what I heard, might need to sign up for the 6 month wait.

Nice snakes.
