Shay,

That's one sharp looking setup!

I've been looking into IWB's myself, and was wondering if the Burns model was reinforced at the mouth, allowing one hand reholstering?

Let us know how it performs for you.

The GWH made by Alessi designed by Dane is reinforced at the top and the "U" shaped sight chanel keeps the holster from collapsin all the way down to the muzzle end, unlike some holsters that are only reinforced at the mouth with a thin metal band that if you lay on your side while shooting will collapse and make it impossible to reholster your weapon. this is now my 3rd GWH which I have been carrying a fullsize 1911 for atleast 12 hours a day and it is holding up very well. I spent 5 days in humid 98 degrees training and the holster even when soaked in sweat kept its nice tight hold of the gun and rolling on the ground while shooting, it never collapsed, even under my 240 pounds

it is way underpriced for the quality you get in workmanship and design. the reason i got 3 is to fit different belts.

Regards,
Shay

The mag pouches are 3 single pouches. both the mag pouches and holster are cordovan with black shark trim.
I am not sure about the price because it was paid together with some other stuff. best thing to do is call Allesi or send email for a price.

Is this holster featured on the R&F website? I can't seem to find it...what does BCP/GWH stand for? The setup is absolutely gorgeous...

Gigi,, That holster is only available from Dane Burns, and his web site is: www.burnscustom.com We make the holster exclusively for him to his specs.
Thanks for the compliment on the quality.
Lou

The holster appears very thin and comfortable, like the Talon Plus, only with a wide belt loop. I really like it.

So little money, so many toys...
