In need of suggestions.

If I'm in the wrong group, I apologize. I'm in search of some leather of the cowboy kind. I need a strong right and a right cross draw rig. I don't know where to start. I have been reading all I can on SASSNET and lots of videos. But I can't find a holster supplier. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

You can't go wrong with El Paso Saddlery. They will also do semi custom work and will build what you're describing.

I'm offended by people that are easily offended.

Though I don't compete, I can also recommend El Paso for quality cowboy leather.
They are not just another maker of old styles of holsters, but can trace their history back to making leather gear for real wild west lawmen and desperados.
I have their "Duke Rig", of the style worn by John Wayne in a lot of his '60s westerns, and their "Patton Rig", the holster/belt combo made famous by Gen. Patton.

Though not western gear specifically, my holsters and belts from Davis Leather are of very high quality, and they have a good range of western gear.
The late Gordon Davis was in on the ground floor of cowboy action shooting.

A buddy puts his SAA in a rig from Black Hills, and it looks like quality.
Runs off at the mouth about anything 1911 related on this site and half the time is flat out wrong.
