View Full Version : Thumb Break Holster for 1911

January 19, 2013, 09:43 PM
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 (http://www.desantisholster.com/store/SEARCH-BY-GUN-MANUFACTURER/COLT/GOVERNMENT-MODEL-45cal/BELT-HOLSTERS/Cocked--Locked-Thumb-Break-Scabbard). 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 (http://www.opticsplanet.com/desantis-right-hand-black-cocked-locked-thumb-break-scabbard-1clba85z0.html) has them.
