Yes I chose the quickship for the g17. Figure with the 17 sized holster I can carry the 17 or the 23 fine and have even more options with the 1 holster.
I don't for one second regret dropping the money on the Tucker for the nice leather, there's something about stainless 1911 with nice cocobolo grips that just cries for a dark cherry leather rig with stamping
But the Raven is a very functional and comfortable holster, for the practical pistols. As I said originally, I've got a Down Under iwb for my 23, and I've used it for years. Always thought of myself as more of a "leather" man. Just something about the old west gestalt or something, "gun on the hip = leather" type deal. But the Raven has definately opened my eyes. Leather will always have a soft spot, classic is classic, no matter what - but I now accept Kydex as a legitimate answer as well
It was AGAF's thread from back in august asking for opinons and the pics Mikekjg posted of his rig that convinced me to give them a try, and boy am I glad I overcame my "plastic prejudice" and did so.
If anyone else is on the fence, I highly recommend giving them a try. They say a happy customer is the best advertising - in my case, they're probably right. I've already had a few friends check it out and I think they're looking at working one into the budget as well.
