    I pulled the plug on a El Paso 1942 Tanker Holster for my Kimber, thought it would be perfect for times out in the woods and on the ATV.

    Anybody else using or have used a tanker holster?

    I did some research and El Paso Saddlery got high marks for quality stuff, so I thought what the heck. Should get it in about 6 weeks. Only thing I need, is to look for is a spare mag holder that will work on it.

    You know, I have seen that holster in 100 movies but NEVER knew what the hell it was. :eek:

    No. It's not anything I would consider for me personally, but I do believe it's a solid design, with solid retention, for a pistol of your choice.

    They say they are really comfortable and keep the gun out of the way when riding/sitting and going thru woods and brush. Kind of what I was wanting it for.

    I will report back on how I like it once I get it. I also love the nostalgia of it too :)

    Bought my daughter (The Lovely Miss Freefall) an Alaskan Guide chest holster by Diamond D Leather, a very similar rig, to go to Anvik to a fish counting station for the summer. $130 at Chimo Guns in Wasilla, not the cheapest venue. I was making her one of my classic Jackass Ripoffs, but made it too tight and ran out of time to make a new one. Hated spending the $130, but it is a nice quality item and now I'll have one of these to bastardize.:p
