    OK folks I dont know where this thread would go. so I put it here unless the big brass wants to move it. I am looking for a shoulder holster for my springfeild 4 inch 1911. I am looking for a simple good comfy holster without the mag pouch on one side. I like leather and seems to fit better than plastic. I am looking something not over a 100 buck. This I can use when I go fishing trip and good for winter carry.

    Ah, the price tag will getcha, good leather costs. You can look in pawn shops and your local gun shops "used holster bin", found lots of good cheap stuff there.
    From good companies you have slim pickins...

    On the other hand this is perfect for you.

  3. Except he stated he didn't want the mag pouch on the off side.

    Personally, I find the mag carriers balance the weight of the gun much better but it's a personal preference thing.

    I am willing to go over abit over 100 bucks and just learned that better leather will cost abit. As Norc said, it would make sense to balance the gun with the mag pouch.. something I wasnt thinking of
  5. In that case, Galco (as previously suggested) would be a good choice.

    I've enjoyed the Galco holster that I have and would (probably "will") order another, but I personally don't like shoulder holsters. They're just not my thing.

    Mine either! Too many draw backs!
  8. While it's not my first (or even second) choice for carrying, shoulder holsters do have their uses. Depending upon the type of fishing the OP is doing, it might be easier to keep the gun out of the water. Another time they are useful is on long road trips when driving.

    I sometimes carry a matched pair of stainless 1911's in a dual horizontal shoulder rig. Very comfortable, and the weight exactly balances.

    such as???? I would like to know.
  11. Unnatural drawing method, when drawing or holstering the muzzle WILL sweep over some part of your body, harder to carry concealed.

    I would like to hear other choice.. thats why Iam all ear for it it. I do have ibw holster, made by smithy, model called comandor( sp) I use offen. but when comes to fishing, I got my chest high waders,, so it can be hellish to try pull the gun out of that. also dont need to let other know that I am CC.
  13. In the fishing scenario you posted, I think a shoulder holster would be the best choice.

    I have a galco IWB concealed carry for my Taurus 24/7 and it is nice However, yesterday the mailman delivered my new Blackhawk Serpa. I know you do not like plastic (well actually this is carbon fiber but looks plastic) but my belt is tight enough without the gun inside it. LOL I really like the way the Blackhawk carrys the gun so far.

    If anyone needs holsters, I can normally beat just about any price out there. I am primarily a fire/rescue dealer. But, my main supplier is loaded with anything police or SWAT related. They have a huge selection of holsters and even have some AR parts and accessories. The Galco holster mentioned above is even in stock as we speak if you are interested.
