Interesting, he is the first one I've noticed that does not make any OWB holsters.

Just received my Crossbreed Supertuck for my Para 1911. I will admit that I was very skeptical that someone with my slim build could conceal a "massive", 5" 1911. However, after only wearing it for a few minutes, it is already more comfortable than carrying my Glock 36 in a Supertuck, and conceals a little better than my Glock, too! :shock: Major Kudos to the folks at Crossbreed!

Kind of on topic: Any recommendations for holster make/model for a Kahr CW45, as far as accessibility, comfort and fit and safety?

A holster is a very personal choice IMHO. I personally take many things into consideration when choosing a holster. Do you like IWB, OWB, paddle, cross-draw, or many other ways a holster can be worn.

I personally feel OWB is the most comfortable for me. I have an open top custom made holster that holds my 1911s very secure and conceals very well, but I also use a IWB for those times that the other holster doesn't quite conceal enough for my liking. I prefer the OWB mainly because I sit alot at a desk or I am driving and a IWB for me is less comfortable sitting.

I also think that as most will agree, a good quality gun belt is just as important as a good holster. Believe me when I say a heavy leather belt is not the same as a good quality gun belt.

So my simple answer is there are many good holsters out there. Think about your lifestyle, your normal days activitys and go from there.

You're correct, I should have been more specific. The CW45 is *tiny*, kind of just a tad bigger than a Glock 30, with a slightly longer (and narrower) single stack grip. I'm looking for IWB here, since I plan concealed during the day and wish to walk about. Shoulder rigs for under coat carry are kind of generic for me all said and done. I do plan OC'ing so an OWB/standard holster is in order, but that's something I can figure out pretty quickly. IWB's just seem so persnikity and it's hard to find a shop that will open up the box to let you try on various holsters (or if it isn't, let me know a store in central Ohio that will do so!). I just didn't know if there was one IWB (3-6 o'clock) go-to type holster that everybody who carries a Kahr CW or P series seems to agree on. :)

Well...I'm not sure how you would go about "trying one on" at a store, but the 2 most popular IWB for CC is Crossbreed Supertuck and Galco's version of the same holster. The biggest difference I can tell between the 2 brands is warranty. Crossbreeds are guarenteed for life, Galco's are not. Since Crossbreeds are custom ordered, I'm not familiar with any store that sells them right off the shelf. Perhaps if you make it to a meet & greet, one of the posters here will let you try theirs on for size. There are soooo many different ones to chose from, it really comes down to preference and comfort.

FWIW, I have 2 regular carry guns, and have a crossbreed for each. When I can finally get my wife to get her a CHL, I will get one for the Ruger SR9c for her to carry. Since I bought my first crossbreed for my Glock 36, I am a CB customer for life.

For my kimber ultra carryII I got a kydex IWB from Deadeyeluke.com shipped fast with good communication and priced right at Under 30 bucks delivered. Its lightweight and super comfy. If this rig lasts I'll be hooked for life.

Anyone have a version of this list sorted by state?

Or another one for Ohio holster makers?

I know there are some, but with all the bloated web sites out there and dial up, it could be weeks before I could hit all those links just enough to determine each one's state.

Thanks,

Buckshot

My favorite holster maker?

Me!

I leather craft, and have a nice side of 8/9 oz. leather sitting here waiting for a pattern to be transferred to it so I can make me a nice Sheridan carved holster for my Ruger Super Blackhawk .44 (10" barrel).

A bit of work granted but the end results are nice and the finished product, were I to buy it in the real world, would easily go for ~ $450+ or so. I'll post a pic when its finished. :)
