Howdy. I've always liked the concept of the adjustable tension holster. I need a good belt holster for my 1911 and I've had my eye on the #1AT for quite some time. I checked Milt Sparks' website and they no longer catalog the #1AT. It has been replaced by an IDPA legal pancake style holster. The IDPA website states that the #1AT is NOT IDPA legal. Why? I reckon Milt Sparks would make me #1AT if I begged. Would it be a good choice for range and field carry? How about concealed carry when wearing a long jacket? Thanks.

for range and field carry it is an exellent holster (most of my leather gear comes from Id.) But for CCW it really is not the best. It positions the grip a little to far from your side (also why it is not IDPA legal). If you want one holster for range/ field/ IDPA/ CCW; try their 55BN or Legacy. Both by the way were designed by the late Bruce Nelson.
