Hi, Newbie to this site..
Waiting for the waiting period to end is driving me's a short trip anyway.
I am curious as to anyone who owns and carries this Kimber as to what holsters and what type you use IWB or OWB and the like.
I just recieved confirmation that Sidearmor does not make a 1911 in left hand. Oh yeah, I am a lefty if that matters.
I do have a CCW and want to carry .
Looking forward to your replies and suggestions.

Try either


They both have excellent Kydex, in left handed holsters.

I have had nothing but good results with everything I have bought from Blade-Tech.

Includes 4 holsters, 3 different mag pouches

I highly recommend them!

Outside of Ky-Tac that requires a fair wait?
If you're willing to pay the $60 or so for better Kydex you might as well get hand-crafted & formed to the exact gun Kydex like Frank Spezzano makes @
IMO the mass produced stuff isn't worth the high $ they try to get. A reasonably priced Kydex holster that IS hand-formed & made comes from this Forum's own Mike Benedict @
All 3 make LH gear too!

Welcome to the forum! Lots to learn here from some pretty talented folks. Personally, I like leather, and there are many good choices out there. For IWB carry, I'd suggest you look at the "GWH", made by Lou Alessi and offered for sale by Dane (who, I believe, also designed it). Don't know for sure if it's offered for lefties, but suspect that it is. I also happen to really like the "NSA" by Galco. Not for everybody, but works for me. Also like the "Summer Special" by Milt Sparks. Bottom line is to look and try out as many as you can, and pick what you think will work best for you. Chances are, however, that you'll still refine your choices as the years go by, AKA the infamous "holster box". HTH.

Make It Hot!
