Salty Dad Special (SD Special): $100

The "SD Special" started off as the "Aspis" holster for me. I wanted a EDC for larger pistols, namely full size 1911's, to be carried on the kidney. Then, I was contacted by "Salty Dad" (check out his FB page ) who wanted an even more extreme cant, kidney carry holster. I sketched up some ideas and used a lot of eraser to finish the design to where he felt it would be a winner. Luckily, for me, it was.
With his help, I was able to come up with a design with a nice stabalization fin, good ergonomics, an adjustable cant (to a point, of course) and it allows the grip to be sucked up into the wearers body, allowing it to be worn under a t-shirt.
The holster can be ordered to the customers specifications on cant. The most extreme I have built was a "neutral" cant of 35 degrees, with an adjustment to almost 40 degrees.
I prefer building this holster with a sewn muzzle to avoid extra reinforcement at the mouth. However, I can do both or I can leave the muzzle open. It is entirely up to the customer. The only additional cost the customer will incur will be $10 for reinforement at the mouth, if desired. I like to keep this holster as slim as possible for better concealment; but, I do realize not everyone alike.
Both versions are available with original loops, or fold over loops, please specify when ordering. If you want both sets, it is $10 extra.

SD Special (A) Price: $90

When working with Salty, he wanted as flat of a back and slim holster as humanly possible. Unfortunately, at the time, I was not able to pull that off. However, with trial, error, cussing and R&D from some great professionals, I think I nailed it.
Introducing, the SDS(A). It is molded differently to allow for a flat back. The face covers from the trigger guard to the far side of the holster to slim it down even more and allow a better wrap at the kidney portion of the body.
This holster is made of 5 to 6 oz premium vege tanned cow or horse hide. It is not offered with a reinforced mouth to keep it slim. However, during testing, one handed reholstering was not an issue. The cant starts at 15 degrees and is adjustable to 25 degrees. However, 30 degrees is not out of the question.
Partial and full facing of exotic is available. Please contact us for more information.
Both versions are available with original loops, or fold over loops, please specify when ordering. If you want both sets, it is $10 extra.
