For now I actually just ordered a Bianchi 3s. I like the fact that it has a thumb break, first CC here. I talked to a local shop here who gets the Milt Sparks, and I got a lot of good info on those. She suggested the Versa Max 2. I also asked her why none of those had a thumb break and to my surprise, there was a good explanation. She informed me that a nice custom leather holster should not need a thumb break, the leather and craftsmanship should hold the gun in proper place.
I think I will wait a while and butter my wife up before I get a Milt Sparks, but I will get one
Also, I am picking up a great looking Wilderness Tactical belt from this same dealer. I do not like leather belts and this is a great looking belt.
Thanks again for all the help and let me know how I did as far as the Bianchi.
I don't personally like leather because it retains moisture. In Kydex, you've got three really good choices. CompTac (one caveat: clips tend to break if you're rolling around on the ground grappling), Bladetech (I use the UCH, as does my LE fiancee), and Raven Concealment. I haven't worn a Raven personally yet, buy people that I know that carry CCW professionally have given them high praise.
So after not being able to find anyone in this country with the Bianchi 3s size 4 holster in stock, I decided to go with a Ted Blocker holster(http://www.tedblockerholsters.com). They are hand made and made in Oregon, so I can just pick it up when it is ready. I went with the model 12, dark brown, horse hide. I am quite excited + they said it will only be 2-4 weeks.
The USPC-.45 is a good carry pistol, it carries light and reasonably small. If you are like most of us then you will eventually have several holsters for each pistol. I carry my USPC-.45 in either a Fist IWB (www.fist-inc.com) or an IWB Highnoon holster (www.highnoonholsters.com). Both work well.
If you want to look at a bunch of holster sites then click on www.berettaforum.net and hit the "tactics and gear" forum. There is a sticky listing "holster sites" of about a hundred holster makers. It's fun to punch them in and see all the different styles of holsters. The 1911 forum (www.1911forum.com) also has a holster maker's site. Have fun.
