Any good alternatives to Sparks VM2 holster?

I really want to get a Milt Sparks holster for my new Ultra Carry II, but I think the wait is something like 6 months! (if anyone knows the actual wait, please let me know..)

I need something else in the mean time. Does anyone else make something similar to the versa max II in terms of quality and functionality? I like how the belt loops are on the sides of the body of the holster (to keep it slim), and I like how the belt loops have snaps. Are there any reasonable immitations without the crazy 6 month backlog? Thanks in advance...

Keep an eye on Top Gun Supply. I've ordered a number of them from them, and never waited more than a week or two. I do see they have gone up a little though. They are out right now, but they will email you when they are in if you sign up.

While I do have a number of them and like them, my Blade Tech IWB's get more use year round and actually hide a little better. About half the price too.

http://www.ttgunleather.com/ makes some decent holsters. Wait time is 10 weeks though.

I purchased a TT gunleather model, but a week before I received it I got the email notification from Top Gun, so I sold the TT holsters.

I got a Milt Sparks VM2 in about a week from http://www.lightningarms.com/
It was at about a $40 premium over what it would cost from Milt Sparks, but a lot cheaper than the same thing from Ebay. BTW it's the most comfortable holster I've ever owned, and conceals very well.

Thanks guys! Exactly what I was looking for...

I left my email with TGS. I hope they notify me within the next 2 weeks or so. Only thing is they only offer the cowhide version. Is there any reason to go with horsehide over cowhide?

The TT leather looks nice too! I might go with their slim IWB holster (without a reinforced mouth) for my Glock 19 since the slide is fatter than my Ultra Carry II. I figure that out of all my handguns, these are the only two I will carry IWB so I might as well get some quality leather for both of 'em..

Thanks again!
