Kirkpatrick makes great leather. I have bought them instead of Bianchi (which I used to buy) because they were just as good, and cheaper. I also like the El Paso holsters if they have the design that you want.I received my Texas strong side holster a few weeks ago, I am very happy with the material and workmanship. It is a first class, comfortable carry rig. Best of all they had it in stock for my Kimber pro-carry.
