Leather-Made Product Advice Needed

In the upcoming days, I plan to purchase a Smith and Wesson M&P in 9mm.

But, before I purchase it, I would like to already have a holster and gun belt for it. The only problem is, I'm not finding any holsters or belts that are to my extreme liking.

What are some good manufacturers or small-time businesses and producers (which I prefer) that make quality leather holsters, belts, etc?

There are lots of great holster makers to chose from. Bianchi, Galco, Desantis, Kramer, Mitch Rosen, Milt Sparks, Don Hume and of course High Noon. As far as belts go, it is hard to beat thebeltman.net.

My favorites are Galco, Bianchi and High Noon. I own several of each and they are all well made and have performed very well. I will say that as a lefty, High Noon is more left hand friendly hand a lot of the others.

Are you going to carry it IWB or OWB? If you're planning on IWB, definitely go with a CrossBreed Supertuck or an MTAC Minotaur. They're ugly, but they are some of the most comfortable holsters you can buy. And these are partially leather. not entirely. So if you're going OWB, your choices are much more broad.

Magnum,

I think I'm going to start out carrying OWB. I may eventually transition to IWB, but as for now, I've always carried OWB and plan on continuing the trend for a while.

Custom holster makers that I recommend are Adams Leather Works and Kelley Gunleather, in no particular order. Both have relatively short turn around times. I have bolsters from both and they are fantastic!
