Default Best 1911 Holster

My wife just signed us up for an open-carry gathering in the Republic of
California. The problem is, we don't have a holster for my 1911 yet.

Please help!!! I need your input and soon! I have to order it and make sure
it's delivered before the 2nd.

It should also have 1911 mag holders.

Greatest <--- that's the one we want. (within reason, no Charles Daily price range stuff)

It's for a Kimber Customer II, I think leather would be great but i'm open to all options. Thanks!

P.S. Also looking for the best Glock 17 holster.

Holsters are a personal matter. I have 5 different holsters for CC. What am I doing, where am I going, how am I getting there? Cross-draw, strong side, shoulder rig, IWB, ankle?

Your question is in the same category of which is better, Ford or Chevy?

More in-sight is needed to make any recommendations.

For what you're doing, go to the nearest gun shop, or sporting goods store that caries holsters, or order an Uncle Mikes generic nylon holster. They're cheap, (under $15) ambidextrous, and are very rarely out of stock. You don't have time to order anything that's not in stock.

Simply Rugged also makes mag pouches,but i prefer Model 20A *Open Top Magazine Pouch Bianchi Leather Holsters
Springfield Armory 1911 TRP,two of them,in Simply Rugged holsters for the summer and Andrews double shoulder holster for winter.
