Simply Rugged is a great little company and makes some fine holsters. They are out of Prescott AZ.

I love Crossbreed, I carry my Glock in it every day, and it is the best holster ever. They were the first design concept. If you'll notice their slogan used to be "carry the cross" now it is "often imitated never duplicated" because, Galco created a knock off in the King Tuk. I prefer the looks of the Crossbreed over the Galco, because the King Tuk looks mass produced whereas the Crossbreed is hand made. Plus with Crossbreed you have the two week try it free guarantee, and a lifetime warranty, if it ever breaks or fails send it back, and if they can't fix it they send you a new one. I've recommended them to a lot of my coworkers, who are looking for a great IWB for off duty carry, and each one has loved it.

I was advised to look into Theis by Canebrake. One of the reasons was that he preferred the retention of the Theis over his Cross breeds. I don't have a lot to compare it to, but I can turn it upside down & shake without it going anywhere.

Here's the thread in question:

Liberals are constantly telling us about the poor and oppressed in this country. With that in mind, why do they feel the need to keep importing poor people from other countries?

I've hear these are nice. Anyone use them?

I'm surprised this hasn't been mentioned. Absolutely look at the Old Faithful Holsters. They are superb. 30 day money back guarantee, if you don't like it. 50 year warranty. They sell kits which you assemble yourself, and all you need is a hammer. The kit ranges anywhere from $30-40. Extremely good quality. They give discounts. American made. I ordered mine and about 2-3 weeks later it arrived. Great customer service, great quality product. Customizable cant, tilt, etc.Also if you decide on a different carry gun you can just order a different kydex mold for the new gun, and use the same leather backing.

If you don't check them out I will hate you forever. I suggest them to everyone. You will get he same quality as the Galco or Crossbreed, IMO, with half the price if you buy the kit.

Seriously, I could go on and on about them. No, I'm not affiliated with them.

I have one for my M&P9c.

Here's mine:

It's not our fault there are so many good holsters on the market.

If you are looking for a full kydex holster, which wont break down over time like leather, you can check us out. Ive made many IWB holsters for full size 1911s and have not a single return or complaint. I never understood how carry a fullsize 1911 would be very comfortable but plenty of people seem to be happy with it!

The comfort comes from know you are strapped with something that has 100 years of proven battlefield experience...when your ass is on the line you KNOW it will work.

I've carried a full size 1911 IWB and OWB for years. It's not uncomfortable but you know it's there.
