apparently i collect 1911s...
.. and holsters.

my newly acquired shoulder holster from gunsnrows (top left) had me try it out today.
i found a few 1911s!

the UMX Govt model is just a tad too beefy to close the strap but all my others w/o a rail fit like a, uh.. a 1911.

the mag pouch just happens to be from a Taymor Nomad folder that matches the belt holster (and fits oh so good) perfectly!

the suede IWB makes for an interesting conversation piece.

Nothing wrong with that.

I got my first 1911 when I was 16-17 ( registered to my father of course ) Then it went from there.

But after about 20years of owning 1911s, I got tired of them. I found out that I could make a CZ 75 thinner than my 1911 and fitted my hand better. Which is odd considering its a double stack.

Hi,

I collect holsters, even more than airguns. I have dozens of them. :D

My favourite is an M1916 Crump, made for the 1911 Colt 45.

The most difficult to find was an M1912 USMC Dismounted holster. I bought it in 2008 from an American museum. It came with the unit marked, WW1 US belt.

v nice! :tonqe:

here's another of mine, recently obtained...

t'was quite grimy and dirty but after a quick buff,
what i thought was a blemish or scuff or gouge proved to be something other than!

i advised the previous owner of the stamping (of which he was unaware)..
but allowed that it was now my holster.

the M (as far i have learned) is for marine but not as in Marines but the german translation for navy.

I was shooting revolvers in IPSC back in the mid 70's- a solid "C" shooter. I tried a 1911 with factory hardball
and instantly became an "A" shooter. Never looked back, but I still prefer to shoot my revolvers on targets.

Hi,

Here's one of my favourite revolver holsters, a 1950's "Patrolman" holster, made by Bucheimer. I would like to find the belt and pouches for this. :D

I still have one of those, with the 3-speed loader pouches, on my duty belt from Corrections. I'd lay odds, Don B. and I (Don was the other Firearms Inst) were the only ones in Canada
with those holsters. LOL They fit our 6" bl. Model 10's - .38 SPL.
Got to dig it out for pictures.

this Bianchi Judge #2800 holster is of a clamshell/front opening design so patrolpersons can draw the gun forward, while seated in a squad car, rather than pulling it up under one's arm pit to draw their weapon.

Hi,

Leon Yrag, this is awesome. :D

My belt size depends on the holiday :oops: Usually 36" +/-?

What a coincidence! I'll send a PM.

Daryl, thanks for sharing. This is a very unique rig. I bet that the holster may fit a 38T, perfectly.
