    Yeah, I have seen those. I can only find the 'green on green' for the Kimber, though. Would
    perfer the green front/yellow or orange rear, for sure. MMC has those on their web site, but
    not Meprolight.

    Thanks for the input. You reinforced my tendencies. What are the pros/cons of open/closed
    muzzle holsters? The only thing I can find from the manufacturer's is that it allows foreign
    debris to pass on...

    Here is a DeSantis model I kinda like. Model 85 (L)"Premium saddle leather, double seams and a
    highly detailedmolded fit, make this exposed muzzle, tight fitting, two-slotholster a great
    choice for yo...

    Thanks for info. All of gun smithing exp has been on long guns, so far. Like you say, it ain't
    hard, but ain't to muck up either. One slip of the punch and tritium everywhere:eek: How does
    the MMC bra...

    Thanks Matt and JD, I have narrowed my options to a DeSantis, with a FBI cant, OWB. The only
    real decision left is thumb snap or open top. Material is immaterial to me:cool:; do you guys
    see any pros/...

    With regards to retention systems, the Level II is my preference by far. As far as carrying a
    1911 cocked and locked, I would like a holster with a strap between the hammer and
    striker/firing pin. Tha...

    I just traded a XD .45 for a Kimber Ultra Crimmson Carry in same cal (see post in other
    thread). I want to install trigium night sights. I have done this several times on long guns,
    but never on hand ...

    Yeah, I have seen a black molded plastic, paddle style holster (the name evades me right now),
    that uses a "tension screw" for retention. I like the Blackhawk system of positive saftey,
    positive relea...

    Sorry for for being so vague. OWB, material neg., I did have a Blackhawk CQB SERPA for my XD.
    Seems they are not available for Kimber. I do like some form of "security", if you will, some
    way to keep ...

    Grettings to all,I just traded my XD .45 "4 Compact for a Kimber Ultra Crimmson Carry .45. This
    is my first 1911 since retiring from the USAF over 13 years ago. I picked it up new for
    $830+tax. I want...
