Thumb Break Holster for 1911

I am looking for a holster with a thumb break/snap for my 1911. I need one that works for me to carry Cocked/Locked. Also, suggestions for major brands would be appreciated; I need it by Thursday, so I need to pick it up locally. (Twin Cities West Metro if you have any suggestions.)

If you can find one, a Galco Fletch holster is a great choice. It of course has a thumb break and is made to carry cocked and locked.

+2 for Galco Fletch.

Requires some break-in though. It'll hold the gun, but good luck on the speed draw if it's not broken in!

I use a DeSantis Cocked and Locked Thumbreak. I don't know if you can find one in your local area, but I'm sure they're available online.

Yeah, I see that Optics Planet has them.
