How much do you want to spend? Because leather holsters are like cars and women, the more you spend, the more you get in "features"

Well right now I am pretty much spending my alloted "You bought what?!?!?!?!" allowance with the Kimber, the AR upgrade, the 1100 rebuild and now hopefully that Howa. So I was hoping to stay within the $75 range. I don't need threat level retention, only either a friction lock or a thumbreak. I would prefer the trigger guard be covered.

A flap holster is a very slow draw Darin. It's to protect your sidearm. A thumb break would be faster, but leaves more of the handgun exposed. If it's for the woods and you don't expect to get bounced by a pack of liberals, a flap holster will serve your purpose well.

Do you guys have any advice or suggestions? Oh and it needs to have an open muzzle for when I get a 460 conversion...
It's not leather but it works for me!

Darin, there are several great choices on the page, so I am not going to rehash any of them.

Everyone here has a dozen holsters. If they don't, they just bought their first handgun. We all have shoulder rigs and carry rigs and hidden rigs of all sorts. Everyone. Take a poll and see for yourself.

Now, when you have the ultimate pistol that you can not ever see yourself living without. The pistol that WILL be your life dependant piece.....

Meet Milt Sparks: Milt Sparks Holsters

This man has forgotten more about making quality holsters than any of us will ever learn. He is not cheap, he is not quick and he is not "normal". He is definitely one of the best and most definitely worth the price.

I'm gonna jump in canebrake's boat cause I have a Fobus paddle for my 1911 and love it. It's the most comfortable 1911 holster I have ever had. I had a clip-on belt holster but found it to be uncomfortable and if I had to run or jog the holster would pop off my belt dropping the weapon in the mud (only happened once but that's all it took).

Take a look at Bianchi leather. I have one for each of my .45s, one for the full size and one for the Kimber compact. I love them. They are good for concealment and carry under almost any condition.

I use a Galco. Not sure what model it is, but the numbers on it are: "B919WC CM212".
It's a brown leather belt holster, open at the bottom and the top, no flap or snap.
I use it when i'm working at the store and it's very comfortable.
