WAY back on June 22nd I dropped my CZ 75 SA .40 off with Ray at Lobo Gun Leather to cut a holster for my hard-to-fit CZ (the SA is different from the standard CZ 75, furthermore the .40 is different as well). I picked it up yesterday! (June 28).

So for less than $60 and in a week I got a real nice custom holster (honestly unless you're local, I seriously doubt he'll get a holster out to you that fast, and Ray admits that my holster just happened to fall into his schedule perfectly, but even at three times the turn around time he's still fast).

I got a "Model 1 Pancake" with slide shield and detailed boning in Cordovan Brown.

Overall I'm very pleased with it. It looks good, its not-too-tight/not-too-loose and holds the gun nicely. One great thing about having a holster maker make the holster directly from your gun is you can get little custom touches done. For example I had him do the boning with the gun cocked and locked (which you can't do with a pistol mold) So the holster assists in keeping the safety locked while carrying (this is a SA pistol that is carried Cocked & Locked like a 1911).

Normally Ray adds a nice little touch that I requested he not do on mine. He twists the leather slightly just outside the belt slots which makes it fit very nicely (I have this habit of adding spring clips to pancake holsters to convert to IWB so I didn't want this feature, but if you are going to wear the holster OWB like a normal person this should make them even more comfortable ... you can see what I'm talking about in this other review (http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=527218) of a Lobo holster).

Here's a few more pics (my skills as a photographer are lacking ... the pic above shows the color most accurately).
