    You spend probably $500 on a gun, don't be afraid to spend more than a $20 on a quality holster. I'd personally get a good leather holster ordered from alessi or sparks.


    I also detest the crossbreed

    Neither one that I posted were $20. Both of them seemd to fair well over at glocktalk when I searched.

    I tried oe of the ctac ones a long time ago. Might have been the Shirt Tucker. I sent it back. COmpletely uncomfortable. Although, in hind sight, I should have given it some time to adjust to it.

    Why do you detest crossbreed?

    We have varying opinions of what that is worth ;)

    I really can't come up with a thing to like about the crossbreed. Its an immitation of a high quality holster thats poorly made. There's nothing wrong with an imitation but the mtac as posted above at least does it with some quality. They're not cut to have a proper firing grip, there is no craftsmanship to the leather works. Its is a step up from an uncle mike's I guess but still suffers some of the same flaws. I wouldn't spend a dime on a holster that wasn't custom fit for my gun and that isn't the cross breed.

    or search a little more. I found mine through another online shop that had one in stock.



    If you are going to go with a tuckable, I put the Versa II at the top of the list. I used to use the kydex (tucker Answer, C-Tac) but after a day of carrying, It just didn't feel comfy so back to all leather holsters for me.

    Smartcarry is a bastard of a method to draw from quickly. Deep cover carries the tradeoff of draw speed. IWB kydex rigs like the CTAC/MTAC/Answer mean speed and concealability. Crossbreeds are range holsters... skip them. Spend the money on a quality rig that will work and last.. not work or last.

    I really think I want to stay away from kydex. That Sparks Versa Max II looks OK but I'd almost want to buy something to hold me over. How secure is a firearmn in the Versa Max II? I know on the kydex holsters the gun kinda "clicks" into place and stays in tight. How well does leather accomplish this?

    The VM2 is rock solid. The link in this thread is not a VM2, it's a summer special. This is a versa max II.

    They are great holsters. They start at $105 and go up to around $135, list from Sparks. The wait can be lengthy, you can find some in stock at different retailers from time to time, but expect to pay a premium over the list price.

    I understand. I didn't realize V-Max = Sparks Versa Max II. I thought it was some other model made by comp-tac.

    As I said, I'd consider the Sparks Versa Max II but I'd need to get somethinf else while I wait. I guess, according to their site, I'll have to call on monday and get on the list. In the mean time I'll try to find one in stock somewhere??

    yep, you don't have to just shop at Milt Sparks' site to get a Vmax, search around and you will find many many other places that stock and sell them.

    And if this is your first carry rig, invest in a good belt. It's just as important as the holster. I use an Aker B21, it has a polymer insert sewn between the leather for stability. You can get them for under $40. Galls carries them.
