I received a new holster from Dennis at Dragon Leatherworks last week. Dennis has been working on a new pancake holster for the 1911 in honor of the 100th anniversary of John Moses Browning (PBUH)'s most celebrated design, and graciously offered me the chance to review a model. Last Thursday I found a package on my front porch containing this:
One of the greatest things about being in touch with Dennis more or less on the "ground floor" of his holster-making odyssey is watching how his style and craftsmanship have evolved from the Pistol Pouch to the Fugly to this latest holster. The quality of Dragon Leatherworks holsters has always been top notch; what's been amazing to watch is how the fit and finish has changed over the years and the different models. There's no denying that his stuff is sturdy to beat the band; lately he's been stretching his artistic chops as well, and the Talon is a wonderful amalgamation of form and function.
Here it is with a full size 1911:
Talon & SW1911
Here's another shot with my 1991A1 Compact:

For now, though, the Talon sure looks like it's hitting the mark!That is all.
