I'm looking for a low bulk IWB holster that's going to keep the sharp edges away from skin even when sitting in a vehicle. I'd like to keep it under $100. Ideally I'd like to try it on at least and decide if it's a keeper or not. I dont like the "you bought it, it's yours" deal that I'm likely to get via mail order. I already have an IWB for my SP101 that's ridiculously bulky and I never use it. I feel like I threw away $50 on something I cant use.

Milt Sparks Versa Max 2 is generally regarded as the best you can get for an IWB holster. But I'm sure you've heard of them and you may not be interested. If you are, goto:
www.miltsparks.com

Here's mine. You cannot tell that I'm carrying when I have it on, and it is comfortable enough for me while driving. It is just a little odd to draw from a 4:00 position while buckled in:

I bought one of these last fall, and like it more and more as time goes on.

Low buck and comfy / good don't generally go together and it is esp true with holsters.

Get the sparks - go to 1911forums.com and find LightingArms(?) - and advertiser on the site - they are located in the PDX area. They generally have VM2s in stock - that way you wont have to wait 16 weeks from gang in Boise.

Good luck

Great people to work with too.
Little pricey, but it's the only way to get one this year...

What he said. You won't believe how comfortable an IWB holster can be until you try the Versa Max 2 especially with a "flat" single stack like a 1911.

+1 on Milt Sparks, I like the "Summer Special 2". I think they are $75 from Brownells.

It looks strangely familiar...

For what it's worth, I have a Galco Royal Guard IWB holster that I have used in both a plainclothes and undercover capacity. It is one of the most comfortable IWB holster i have found. The rough horsehide exterior keeps the holster from sliding around and the two straps that loop around your belt are very sturdy. I had one of the snaps break off and sent it to galco and they fixed it for free. However as with many things it all comes down to what works best for you. Good Luck, hope this helps.

I use a Brommeland Max Con V. Same concept as the MS VM2 just different details. I find mine very comfy.

I have been using a Galco NSA II for about 8 months now. It has worked out so well that I have purchased one for the other gun that I regularly carry



$64.95 factory direct.
