Old Kareem, meet brand-new Texas holster from Luke.  It took two days of sitting holstered in a plastic bag, before it was broken in enough to carry...  But today it was. :D

Hopefully I can cut Luke loose on the G23 holster soon.

    It is an excellent and sharp-looking holster. My only issues concern the thumb safety:
    -1. The leading edge of the safety likes to 'catch' the sweat guard when holstering.  Not major, but it requires additional movement of the thumb to push the sweat guard out of the way.  With training, I suppose...

    -2. When riding in the holster, the manual thumb safety likes to 'halfway' disengage.  Not enough to allow it to fire, and not that it really matters when it rides in a good holster, but it's worth mentioning.

    The Glock will have neither of these problems. ;)


    All said, this holster is nothing less than the quality that I have come to expect from Luke.  I only wish I could keep him busier.  :D

    Hmm on the safety that can happen with some 1911's too depending on the style of safety, Kimber's are known for it since they have such a big slot between the slide and safety lever on most of their guns. I typically will move the sweatshield either with my hand that lifts my shirt to reholster or use my thumb to insure it's clear. I went back and forth with this gun when I did the Texas design on the sweatshield because I wanted the side coverage to keep it comfortable but try and keep out of the working parts too;) So this was my compromise of sorts.

    On the safety is it riding into the indention and how stiff is the safety, admittedly I'm a 1911 guy and not a hi power guy so I'm not sure if the spring on the plunger is the same style but on 1911's this is typically a problem with the spring tension not being strong enough. Or at least that might be something to look at if it's getting weak but you might know more than I do with it being a fairly unfamiliar platform;)

    Take care!

    It was recently gone over by a gunsmith that does BHP handguns, and he fit and tuned the safety.  It still might need more tension, but I am inclined to think he set it at the BHP 'standard' tension. (extremely meticulous guy)

    Buuut, enough thread drift.  It looks Great, and carries very well. :)

    Well the holster, ammo carrier and belt were a hit with the wife.  Can't say she was totally surprised, she had figured out I had some sort of holster in the works for her.  She told her mom it was really pretty.  As she has done a little bit of leather work she understands how much work all the tooling is. 
    I love the way that the nickel pops and the walnut color matches the grips.  All in all a spectacular subdued BBQ rig.  I also like the removable safety strap.

    Jim

    Funny you should say that at one time I was supposed to be in a show my old art teacher was putting on, he really wanted to get some of my exotics in the show. However I never heard back from him so I'm guessing the art hippie portion of his supporters balked about items used to carry firearms;) Doesn't make much difference to me I'd have done it for fun/favor so it's less time out of my schedule but still interesting;) Been quite some time since I've had anything in an art show(I used to do pen and ink, and charcoal along with other mixed media work).

    Also funny now that I think about it, I used to be very involved in art etc but then moved into technical fields and now I guess I'd say my media is leather but they always said artist's don't make any money. I may not be rich but I'm supporting myself doing something I love so I'll take it;)

    Thanks for all the compliments guys!

    Art.  Put a crucifix in a jar full of piss and you would get a check from the National endowment for the arts for 35000 bucks.  Make actual art and it's not acceptable for their display.

    That's alright I never really fit in with most "art" types, my style of doing things was never inside their little box of beliefs from faith on down the list;) I did have fun pissing them off from time to time, typically if I had to do a speech I tried to do at least one thing to kick them in the pants;)

    Simple Burnsie holster for a big freaking piece of iron;) This is for the Taurus Raging Judge Magnum, big heavy piece of iron fits well in a hunting holster. I gotta say when I build this style of rig I always go into it think dang this is a huge gun, then once the rig is done I start thinking man I need one of those since this carry's really well;)

    They work pretty dang good for carry just not concealment;) I used one last year to carry my dad's BFR 45-70 revolver and that was a heck of allot of gun but it works really well out in the woods for me.

    Well that's nice! ^  What are the hides?  Elephant and Ostrich?

    On another note, it's good to see guys from Illinois finally being able to use such a product.  :thumbup1

    Ostrich and shark for the hides, agreed I've done a few rig for guys in Illinois and I'm glad they are finally getting concealed carry worked out. Well I should say I did some for LEO's and whatnot in Illinois before, but it's good to see some regular folks getting concealed carry as well;)

    Here are a couple more I finished this morning for another order:

    Very similar color to the other rig, but this one is elephant trim with walnut dyed cowhide for the brown portion.


    And a matching Texas holster as well:


    This does remind me that I need a new Texas for my full sized 1911 since my dual exotic ostrich is getting a bit long in the tooth since it's not current with all the updates so one of these days when I have free time(ha;) I'll have to build something new for myself.

    Take care!
