I came across a gentleman named Ron Graham who makes custom holsters. The quality and workmanship of the belt slides (the only ones I have purchased so far) is outstanding. His prices are ridiculously reasonable as I have seen holsters like this sell for more than triple the $15-$20 he charges. Drop him an email at grahamraven@worldnet.att.net, you will not regret it. I do not know this gentleman and have no affiliation whatsoever with him, just thought I would pass this along.


Regards,
Frank

I recently ordered a holster from Ron Graham. It's a belt slide for a 1911. I have to say this has got to be one of the best values I've come across. The holster is a great compromise of flexibility and body (heft).

Thanks faiello5. You are absolutely correct about the quality of Ron's product.

Next, I'm going to try him out on a medium frame revolver pancake holster. The Roswell model.

I have one of his belt slides for my kimber and a second one for my baby eagle on the way. Ron is a nice guy to deal with and is giving these holster away at this price. Here is his web page.

Let me add another endorsement for Ron Graham. I sent him an e-mail around 10PM yesterday (Saturday) regarding making a holster for the H&K USP .45 Tactical -- not a holster easily found. At 7AM the next morning (Sunday) I have a return e-mail advising what models he makes for the Tactical.

Obviously, I do not have the product yet, but the quality described here on TFL is excellent, the price is wonderful, and the customer-oriented attitude could not be better.

I suggest Ron Graham's products may be one of the very best deals around -- and he seems like a fine gent.

Another vote for Ron. He's a lefty like myself and understands that southpaws need holsters too. And you don't have to special order one. I have two of his holsters and highly recommend them. His turnaround time is usually two to three weeks, but it's well worth the wait.

I just ordered one for my G19 thanks to all your feedback.

Any opinions re the two different types of IWB holsters that he sells? I also would like one for my Kimber Ultra.

It looks like his prices might have gone up a little. The cheapest is $25.00. Thats still a darned good deal for leather though. If it keeps the gun close, it sure looks worth it.

I think Ron told me in an email that he wouldn't be able to maintain the "giveaway" prices for too long. 'Still a good deal.

About a month ago, (see the above post) I ordered one of Ron Graham's holsters for my new H&K USP .45 Tactical. The holster was received earlier this week and it is an outstanding piece of craftsmanship. Not only is Mr. Graham a true gentlemen and very easy to work with over the Internet, but his products are superb. Thanks Ron. TFL members, I have never bought a holster that came close to the value provided by Mr. Graham.

I just ordered three holsters and a couple of mag pouches from Ron. I'll post back when I get 'em.

BTW, for you lefties, CDNN has a TON of left hand Gould & Goodrich holsters, both duty style and concealment, for something like $10. They don't have as many for us righties, but they're still cheap, at around $13.

Browning,

I hope you are kidding, at least as far as my posts to this -- or any other -- thread go. The primary purpose of TFL is to share firearms-related information. That is precisely what has been done in this thread.

More specifically, during the last thirteen months, I have recommended a couple commercial enterprises to TFL members (ammoman.com and Ron Graham are the only ones that come to mind). I have no personal interest in these firms, or in any other firearms-related companies for that matter. Moreover, I would never mislead TFL's membership or promote any product for selfish reasons.

I value my reputation -- and I certainly do not participate in "commercials".

B9MMHP - I'm don't know exactly what "The previous posts sounds like a commercial to me (sic). What do the of you think (sic)?" means. Your grammar isn't condusive to determining if there's a specific post or person you have a problem with, or if the innuendo is intentional.

Personally, I beleive people are simply trying to tip their online peers to a well-priced, quality product. I know that's my only intetion.

Please explain, so I'll know if I should be offended or not .

No offence intended to anyone.

As I read the posts, It just read like an infocommercial. I was not picking on anyone.
If you go back and read the first 10 post with an open mind you may see what I seen.I suppose I should have added some smiles to my post.

I am one, that at a drop of a hat will give a commercial on a product that I like. So please accept my apology.

I know they're cheap in price, but from the pictures they look cheap in quality. The blocking looks very crude. I think I'd rather pay the money for something that more time and energy went into.
