I have a Uncle Mikes Kydex holster for my 1911 ... Is there a way to convert it to a tactical leg holster? Who sells an extender?

Does that REALLY sound like a good idea?

Never seen an adapter....

Gotta go with Lumpy though, probably not a good idea.

You can get some cheap drop leg holsters from cheaper then dirt and sportsmans guide though.

Don't buy cheap - it'll look like shit and won't work.

What are you using it for.

Range, Look cool for the ladies



­I got my wife a bagmaster for her walther. Works fine for the Range but I would use it anywhere else. 29.95 @ gun show

There is a reason why we all have a box/draw/cubbard full of holsters for our guns....

Just buy the best one (or two) to last you a life time and you can't go wrong and will save you money in the long run.

I bought a cheap leg holster ($20.00) for my Beretta 92FS and it doesn't fit right, hold the pistol tight, hard to adjust and hard to draw from. Sure looks cool though! Then I bought an OMEGA leg holster from BlackHawk and it makes all the difference - plus it looks cooler! As it's been said before, we all try to buy cheap/fabricate our own and all we end up with is a box of useless holsters. Buy right the first time. hug.gif

Also, consider the reason you are buying - looking cool? tactical? life-or-death? That question should answer the question of how much you should pay. hug.gif

Duct taping an uncle mikes kydex holster to your thigh is a sure way to loos your handgun during movement. Even some nylon rigs that are built for it i've seen loose the gun. I can only really recommend the Safarilad 6004.


That being said, the only real reason for the thigh holster is if you're wearing extended coverage armor or a tactical vest that somehow impairs you from accessing a gun on your hip
