if he was lucky and knew where to get one.
I found polizei1 his VMII pretty quickly.

I don't think he'd be able to find a good leather holster by Christmas because of the lead times.

Sparks VM2, but you will pay +$100 to get one now. 7 month wait from Sparks.

Or an Occidental Phoenix Stronghold. No wait. Very similar build. http://i880.photobucket.com/albums/ac6/HokiePS7/536ba3f9.jpg

Jeez oh man!! I cant believe the prices on some of this stuff!! Thank god i use kydex lol! I know there is a difference in quality, but even as far as IWB goes, i havent found anything more comfortable than the CBST, now i use the shielded holsters though from a forum member which are essentially the same thing. Don, you'll have to let me tote the KC around for a day and prove me wrong :)

I had a 5" VMII and found that it was too long for me to comfortably carry since i drive a lot. sold it for twice as much as i paid for it. So i pretty much got my 4.25" VMII for free (which i got at the same time) :supergrin:

I'd recommend looking at http://www.5shotleather.com/owb.htm

High quality at reasonable prices. Not sure what his backlog is though. I have a CBS model that is going up for sale.

yaqui slide. minimal, but you tighten those tension screws enough and it ain't coming out.

If you want good quality and want kydex, then definitely go for a Raven. There is also a wait on these as well! The most useful holster i have ever used has been the Comp-tac locking paddle. When i used to use it in IDPA, people would ask what kind of inner/outer i used, i just smiled and said i didnt just a 5.11 operator belt and the holster
