Evidently my holster collection is inadequate, having mainly USGI stuff. I have a couple US-stamped WWII era flap-holsters for the 1911A1; one a dark walnut Warren Leather Co. and another a tan S&B Co.; and a(nother) US-marked dark walnut backwards-flap TEXTAN holster (with lanyard!) for the old M1909 Colt New Service.
As far as total inventory and strap-ability goes there’s also a “Fletch” for the 4-inch S&W Model 10 in the “Quick-Grab Box” for household use, a nice vintage Bianchi of a similar type for the vintage and pristine 5-inch barreled Model 10, and a Summer Special for the ’43 GI Colt. For the Sig P220 there’s a Comp-Tac Minotaur which also fits the P245 but really could be shorter (for the P245 short-barrel), and an Uncle Mike reinforced nylon holster for I don’t know what. Still a small box of holsters as I understand it. Could grow.
The P220 has a light/laser attached so it really doesn’t fit the Comp-Tac unless it’s stripped bare, so the P245 is nestled there for the time being. So…. In anticipation of another round of pistol footwork and classwork preparing for my CHL (or whatever the hell they call it around here), I sent off for my Main-Man-From-U.N.C.L.E. gear — another Galco “FLETCH” (which stands for Federal Law Enforcement Training Center Holster, in case you needed to know…) for the semi-diminutive P245. Basically I chose that since I wanted to match (or reduce any other external variables) my memory/experience of training with the Colt Commander (Ed Brown) in my with Louis Awerbuck classes (1-Day and 2-Day). Also for the simple reason that from an non-experiential ideal, I *still* like the apparent security-blanket of a thumb-break – which may change rapidly once actual carry commences. And probably will.
Sometime in the future I’d like to have a fancy, exotic-hide rig to match the Ed Brown, and some fancy grips for the Sig.
