« on: July 13, 2010, 05:26:44 PM »
  I just added a new member to my Family. It is a Nighthawk Talon II w/Lightweight Frame and  Ed Brown bobtail. Hope he gets along ok with His Big (Nighthawk Predator) and Little
(R9S) Brothers.

Chief.  I'm sure he will.  Nice addition!

 Now I am searching for some top notch IWB Leather for him.
 Any ideas?

Cheif , my apologies, I corrected my previous post, it was a little early for me.

Man I like your top shelf choice of 1911s, the bug bit you hard!

As far as leather, as Tom noted, Milt Sparks is tops, so is Kramer and Mitch Rosen.  
Rafter S makes a few nice rigs.  Even Wilson has some nice sharks.

I have rigs from all of the above that I am pleased with, all for 1911- except Mitch Rosen(Sig and Glock).

I'm sure Richard has some top makers to suggest, to bad Del FAtti is not taking orders.

 I am going to check them all out, do not want to cheap out on the new guy's house. Nighthawk sells custom holsters as well but IWB is a special kind, not all do it well. Anyone use Crossbreed's Super tuck delux?

That was one I was trying to think of, it just wouldn't come to mind.
Never tried it.
One guy in the classifieds is selling a Crossbreed with his gun and says that it is the most comfortable holster he has worn.

I have heard others say the same.
