    I have been looking for a holster for my full size Ruger SR1911 for a while and I was not liking any of the "off the shelf" holsters. I looked at a bunch of the big name custom holster makers but their turn around times were way to long.

    I did a google search to see If K&D holsters were still open as I have used them before and got the best holster I have ever had for my M&P 45c but they closed a few years ago, in the search results I found a link for Nelson Holsters and the owner has been carrying on some of K&D holsters designs.

    His pictures and reviews looked good and his turn around time was only 3-4 weeks so I thought I would give him a try.

    The Holster is absolutely beautiful and the quality is fantastic, he does all the stitching by hand and not on a sewing machine and the molding fits and holds the gun perfect.

    His name is Ervin Nelson and he does all the work by himself, he is the most friendliest person I have dealt with and will answer any questions you have right away. Here is the best part, I ordered the holster on January 7th and I received it on January 15th!!!! He does not keep holsters instock he made the holster in six days!!!!!!

    If you are looking for a holster I would not hesitate to order one from Mr. Nelson. Again here is his website Nelson Holsters

    Here are some pictures of my holster.

    The holster is $80.95 and then I added the thumb break for $15.00. I normally would go without the thumb break but this is going to be for open carry so I wanted some extra retention.

    Very nice looking holster. In this day and age of kydex and nylon (both of which are great, BTW), there's definitely some guns that seem to just feel better in a leather holster.

    I only use leather for all my guns, there is nothing better looking than a well made custom leather holster.

    Awesome, the owner is using my picture of my SR1911 in the holster for the stock image on his website for this style of holster.
