I have a variety of handguns that I select from for concealed carry, open carry, and hunting. Over the years, I have gone through hundreds of different holsters and have developed some strong preferences for everyday carry. I thought it might be interesting to post some pictures of your favorite holster and why. I'll start it off with one that I just ordered fro Lobo Gun Leather. I have a few of his holsters and do not believe I have ever had a better quality holster and his prices are reasonable for the quality you get. I use Lobo Enhanced Pancake holsters with a smooth leather lining for my Colt Diamondback and Python. They are boned to where even the cylinder flutes are visible and after two years of carry, there is absolutely no holster wear on my fine revolvers. This is a picture of the rig I just ordered from them for my 1911. Notice the piece of leather that extends behind the slide on the 1911? It is to keep the slide from rubbing a hole in your side, a feature well worth having if you carry every day.
