    I just noticed your site.

    What is closest to the Bianchi Black Widow with thumb break (my favorite holster)?

    I only noticed two holsters, Memphis and Savannah, but that was in the featured categories.

    OK, I see the description says Open Bottom, so I am guessing Savannah.

    Do you make the Savannah with a thumb break?

    Wow, I didn't notice until MP pointed this out. Glad to have you aboard.

    Do you have a regular store front too? I live in Acworth and would love to stop by if you do.

    I'll send some more questions through your web site.

    I'll be the Gineah Pig. I just ordered a Memphis IWB holster for my PPK/S. After 6 hours in the car, I decided that my Ross Leather isn't comfortable for sitting. It stops at the back of the grip and leaves the beaver tail and hammer exposed to dig into your side.

    Hey all. Just saw this post. I'll try to answer your questions in order.

    MP - The closest I have is the Savannah. But I can make something very similar to the Black Widow. When I mention "Open Bottom", it's just that it is not sewn closed like this.

    The barrel is not exposed in any of my "open bottom" holsters.

    Rammstein - I can make the Savannah with a thumb break.

    pro2am - Sorry I could not accommodate your firearm. And I do not have a physical store front. I work out of my finished basement and garage.

    Adam5 - Thanks for your order. Expect to have it in about 3 weeks.

    You can view some more pictures here andherethat I have uploaded for previous customers.

    The Southern Ghost is the Memphis modified with the closed bottom.

    The belts look pretty tough, too.

    I open carry sometimes, which is the reason for inquiring into the thumb break.

    I've been meaning to get a spare mag holder. I may be ordering one from you in the near future.

    I cheated. I used my G-mail e-mail address instead of "our e-mail address" and my visa instead of ours. "The Boss" doesn't know that I ordered it. :twisted:

    I need a mag holder period. The magazine feels funny flopping around in my pocket.

    So, you make more than what is shown?

    I am uncomfortable with no thumb-break-snap-thing, especially when open carrying.

    I bought a holster from southern holsters last year on ebay. He hand makes all his stuff with high quality leather. It might take some time to break in the leather though.

    I'll post a review when it get here, and update it after a weekend of carrying. Oh wait, my parents will be here this weekend, and want to go to one *&^%$ public gathering after another. I'll have to go out about after work one night this week to give a review.

    All it takes is a little time to break one in and a little raid of my daughter's riding supplies for saddle soap.
