    I have used most of the Leather makers you list and found them all to be good enough. My current favorite tho is K&D a small custom shop that you can find at http://kdholsters.com/ Kevin and crew are top notch both in customer service and craftsmanship imho . I predict that his current 10 to 12 week backlog will continue to expand so order now lol .

    Both of mine aren't listed, so I picked "Other."

    Milt Sparks for leather, Comp-tac for kydex.

    I don't know how you could have left off Milt Sparks, Del Fatti, Alessi, Horseshoe Leather or Bulman. I have some of each, and they make fine holster. I'd say my favorites are my Milt Sparks, but Del Fatti and Horseshoe Leather are right up there.

    Aker Flatsider for autos and Sidearmor for kydex.

    I've handled the 'big name' expensive holsters before and they are not the quality that people make them out to be. For a holster to cost $100+, it better be here tomorrow, not 15 months down the road.

    Sparks, Boomstick, Del Fatti...

    Your list is not complete.

    Many of you may not have heard of Boomstick Holsters...you should see those that Longtooth has for his wheelguns.

    A review done by Longtooth with pics...

    Milt Sparks and UBG. The way Longtooth has been bragging on his Boomstick holsters and after talking with the owner a few times, my next one will be a Boomstick.

    FIST and Comp-tac. Both make great holsters and deliver them in a reasonable amount of time. Great customer service too:what:

    My favs?

    Comp-Tac for Kydex
    Used to be Rafter S for leather (but since they've stopped delivering products). So right now I'm on the hunt for my next leather maker, I'm going to try Simply Rugged next and see how I like Rob's work.
