Default OWB holster

I'm looking for a holster, to wear while I'm hiking, for my Kimber Pro Carry II. I don't want a cheap one but I also don't want to spend too much. I came across an Uncle Mikes side kick ambi holster and I was wondering if anyone has any experience or opinions on this holster. They also have a sizing chart I the back on holster sizes for both large and medium autos. My kimber would fall into the medium auto category, correct?

I just picked up a Galco speed paddle, almost wished I got one with a thumb break. I have a Kimber ultra CDP

Personally I would want something made specifically for the model gun if I was planning to go off road with a holstered firearm. A one size fits all may not provide enough retention or protection. DeSantis, Fobus and Galco sell some decent priducts. You may also consider a military style holster with a full retention cover flap.

I see, that does make sense. Guess ill just cough up a little extra cash and get one that's tailored to my gun. Thank you for the advice.

I occasionally carry a Taurus Judge when doing tractor work, in the woods, working in dusty, outdoor environments, and I use the Blackhawk! Serpa holster. It has excellent retention and is of a kydex/carbon fiber type construction, pretty much impervious to the elements, and when I'm done I just wipe the dust, perspiration, debris, etc. off of it and it's good to go.

They come in gun-specific models, and though I'm not familiar with the Kimber Pro Carry II, their website does indicate availability for 1911 clones, so yours might just fit. I'm sure they could answer any of your questions with a phone call.

I got my dad a Serpa for his judge. Works great for yard work if rattlers are a concern. I think I paid $30 for it a couple of years ago.

I have a Blackhawk Serpa for my 1911. It is not very expensive. Retention is great. Water wont hurt it.
