    Today I was telling a customer of mine that I just purchased a new Ruger SR1911. Me grinned at me and went over and pullad a new Uncle Mike's Reflex Holster out of a box and gave it to me. He has some irons in the fire in the gun world and has access to many things like this. I was caught off guard by his gesture and very grateful. My job is great because most of my customers are gun guys.

    Highboy check out the Galco King Tuck Holsters. Man are they comfortable. Congrats on the Ruger, Mine was accurate right out of the box.

    Youre welcome Highboy. The only thing I didnt like about my Ruger 1911 is the checkering on the grips is deep and it really did tear my hand up. Not to the point of bleeding but to the point of being uncomfortable. As soon as I figure out where my life is going due to having to have to retire I am going to talk to Carl and see about a new set of grips for it. The problemt here is Carl has so many different woods to choose from I dont know where to begin. If you desire to change your grips talk with Carl he is a great guy and spent quite awhile on the phone with me suggesting what woods would look good and directing me to pages on his site to see the pictures.

    I like rough grips. When your hands are sweaty, your gun wont slip. I have several 1911s with aggressive grips and I wouldnt change them. But, everyone is different. Alot of people put skateboard tape on their frontstraps for added grip along with the grips and then some guns have aggressive checkering on the mainspring, frontstrap and grips.

    Agreed DD but these seem like they are cut too deep on the checkering and are really pointy like holding a jagger bush in your hand. I have some grips for my sig that I had to add sticky stair tread to the front strap for that purpose that you mentioned.

    If you want smooth grips, find some off of a Rock Island GI. Either that or I'm sure Woodnut can hook you up :-D

    It's nice, but it's not leather. I have a friend that makes holsters and he is designing a new one so he is going to let me guinea pig it. I will post some pics of it.

    Only bad thing about the hard plastic holsters, is that they scratch the finish up on even a SS gun. Not deep scratches just marring scratches. I just bought a SS1911 and had to redo the finish because of a holster like this was used for the gun. Is to refinish a SS gun. Would not want to use it on a blued gun for sure.

    P.S. Love the Ruger
