    CrossBreed, check midway and others who actually stock the SuperTuck or call and ask if CB has a blemished holster for immediate shipping. Chances are a common gun like a standard 1911 will have holsters in stock.

    Warning, you won't be able to take people who "can't conceal" anything bigger than a LCP seriously after easily disappearing a 1911 in a quality holster.

    Also, if you don't have an ultra lightweight model you need a real gunbelt, too (this warning is as much for someone searching through as it is for you, cavman). Again, common sizes will ship quicker, if you're tiny or mongo-sized a belt can take a while to arrive.

    I recently ordered an MTAC Minotaur holster from Comp-Tac. It got here in a week (though not with a large margin) and nicely conceals my 1911 government. It's far more comfortable than I thought it might be and looks professional. I didn't like the crosses on the Crossbreed holster/clips and I like the ability to adjust the cant on the Minotaur. The crossbreed and the Minotaur are very similar and I don't think you could go wrong with either.

    cavman - Since you live in Burke you should go to Virginia Arms in Manassas. They have an entire wall of holsters from Galco, DeSantis, Safariland, etc. They will have many different models in stock for 1911s. Deciding on what style to buy is difficult so being able to hold it in your hands is a big plus.

    checked out the Manassas guys. They recommended the Galco (as they didn't have the Crossbreed), but had no lefty versions.

    Looks like the timeline has been extended :) thanks for the suggestions

    I'm not late - he fooled around and didn't ask until the last minute. :)
