    Hey every body how's everyone doing???

    Well I just recently (as of today 7-25-2008) aquired a 1911 and I was wondering if you awesome folks would once again help me out with finding a holster system.

    This is what she looks like.

    Before I actually received her

    (Today 7-25-2008) After bringing her home from the firing range where I picked her up

    She's a Sig Sauer GSR 1911 C3 .45cal (the compact 1911) and I was wondering if you all could help me find a cheap yet reliable IWB leather CCW holster for her.

    So let the link posting begin and thank you all for your help.

    Sincerely and Respectfully,

    USMCDK

    Nice pistol ya got there.

    I have found that the Uncle Mikes IWB built for a HK USP45 fits my SA Champion just perfectly. It will not fit the full-size 1911 though. With the wide body of the GSR, I'd bet it would be just fine.

    Funny I also own an H&K USP45 full size with light attachment. but that's not the point here.

    So you are serious the holster will also hold a compact 1911 from SIG??? Huh who would have thought. I will check that out some time, but everyone please continue to post I would like multiple opinions on this matter.

    Nice pistol. Don't skimp out on leather gear, especiall holsters and gun belts. It'll make a HUGE difference to buy quality. At the very least, Don Hume would be a start.

    Snug as a bug in a rug.

    I feel it actually holds the Champion better than it holds the USP.

    If you can buy custom leather for each piece, obviously, that is optimum.

    I like Blade Tech IWB holsters, they're extremely durable and the gun "snap"s into place thanks to their perfect molding.

    I use them for every gun that I carry...

    I forgot to add comfortability to the list. I can't be having no uncomfortable holster that would just be pointless. which by the way I am a 230lbs boy and wear size 38 waist, take that into acount all. I could mean the difference for me.
