When you decide what youy want, go shopping on eBay. They have hundreds of holsters-many for lefties. The lefty models go CHEAP.

Just go there and type in a brand and see what comes up--ie Bianchi holsters.

This posted topic is somewhat limited.
Depending on your budget & what features or uses you need, I'd check these websites; www.DonHume.com www.Miltsparks.com www.Safariland.com www.Galcogunleather.com www.COMholsters.com www.Blade-tech.com www.Highnoonholsters.com www.MitchRosen.com www.Blackhawk.com .

The Safariland SFS & ALS lines are useful. The Blackhawk SERPA & Check-Six holsters have merit too. The man-made "skin-tite" holsters from HighNoon Holsters could do well. They are ready to ship & offered in different formats.
You should be able to buy decent left hand holsters if you look.

Here's a relatively small-scale holster-maker with whom I've done business and would recommend:

I use Bob's PS1 8, LH model, and it fits my 1911s as well as my P-35.

Bob makes strong, thick belts, too.

Find the style of holster you want and then contact the manufacturer if they don't specifically list it as available in left hand. It's no harder or more expensive for a holster to be made in left hand than it is to make it in right hand. It doesn't require the manufacturer to make a new pattern or anything as the same pattern is used for both right and left hand, if you have a right hand pattern you just flip it over when transferring the design to the leather and it becomes a left hand pattern.

Leather for Lefties / Packing Heat will have a huge selection of left handed Galco and Bianchi holsters. I'm a lefty too and have a bought a lot of holsters from them. Do a search and you'll likely find several selections. Both Galco and Bianchi make great holsters too.

I bought a used 1911 leftie Fobus for $5.

All my other lefties are from Galco.

Funny you should ask, I just bought a left handed plain Jane cowboy style holster from Hunters Holster yesterday. It is a left handed holster and it is for my Ruger Old Army 45 caliber revolver but it will fit my Ruger Super Blackhawk 44 magnum revolver equally well.



Give them a call and see if they can fill your needs.
