Why its right here in my Hot little hands.

I Ordered a Sharkskin for a 1911 5" with 1.5 belt slots Left Handed on the 1-4-2008 and got it 1-9-2008 excellent turn around time esp for a lefty..

One thing you will notice is it is thick and i mean thick Which is Good once you pull it tight to the belt no wobble no flex .. very Nice for a OWB.. I did have to wax paper the Gun for a few days so i used one of my les baers now it draws smooth as can be ..

Well enough of the Babble lets see some Pics








Conceal Carry Holsters

Thanks Roy

Sometimes if the holster's a little too snug,you wrap the pistol in wax paper and ram it in there for about 24 hours or so. It helps to stretch the leather just a hair.

Bud, what do mean by "wax paper" the gun for a few days?

Thanks

..L.T.A.

Zero got it ya wrap it in wax paper wax side out and holster the gun and it will stretch a little and also the wax transfers off the paper so it makes it easier to draw when trying to break it in

VERY nice holster, Bud. But my brain just cannot comprehend a
5 day turn-around on a custom SHARKSKIN holster!!! That's insane.
It's impossible!
I'll bookmark that website, for sure.:notworthy:

Just received mine today, have to say very nice.
As you said it is a little tight, I have mine wrapped in some saran wrap. (Wife’s out of wax paper)

I think I will get one in a commander size also.

Thanks for the heads up.:wavey:

I know this is a Old thread but thought i would up date it ..

I have been wearing the hell out of this holster it has pretty much become my EDC holster and it still looks as good as new and is holding the gun as good as new ..

Holding up great like a handmade holster should
