    I've been looking at Pancake style holsters for my Para 7.45, full size 1911 style.

    Any of you folks out there use such a holster?

    If so, which manufacturer/model of holster?

    Do you want leather or kydex?

    For off-the-shelf leather, Galco has some nice options. I personally like the FLETCH. I've also had Bianchi and Kramer stuff. Preferred the Galco over both of those.

    I'm much more of a kydex guy than leather though. If you go the plastic route and want name brand - it's hard to go wrong with a Raven Concealment rig, and they have both pancake wings, injection molded loops, and you can convert their stuff to IWB by removing the OWB loops and replacing with IWB soft loops by themselves, or an injection molded strut and soft loop combo thus allowing for a tucked in shirt.

    I have a High Noon belt slider that I'd describe as a pancake holster. I prefer an IWB for concealment but use this holster for anything else. I really like having the gun high and tight to my body and this one works well. Mine has a thumb break which some may not like, but I'm sure you can get something very similar with out it.
    For something easier to hide, I use Galco Summer Comfort and love it. The guy I bought it from didn't.
    Test fit any holster you can before you pay for it...

    I have a Galco Cop 3 slot holster for my Sig P250 .45ACP! All leather, three belt slots for a lot of angle adjustment, top notch quality! Like the many other Galco holsters I own this one has been perfect! Very comfortable. SRG
