While an MP in the Army, Rob used an excellent full flap holster: John Bianchi’s M-66. One of it's outstanding features was the pivoting flap. this allowed me to draw my 1911 very quickly or easily remove it if so desired. It really helped to keep the gritty Chihuahua desert dust off of my duty 1911, while stationed at Fort Hauchuca and the mud and snow off of my 1911 while working and training in the forests & hills of Northern Europe.
When I decided to build a full flap holster, I adapted the best flap design I knew of, to the best designed field holster extant (clears throat) The Sourdough Pancake...The Sourdough almost fully encompasses the the gun, about the only way dust and debris can get in on the gun is through the top, if you are not wearing a jacket or vest. I have rarely found myself out in the field hunting, without one or the other, but there are times. And with the CPS it is very nice when worn outside the coat.
This is a full flap added to one of our Sourdough Pancake™. The removable flap flips up out of the way as you draw the gun. It adds protection for the grip frames and stocks of your pistol.
THE FLAP JACK HOLSTER IS VERY POPULAR IN STATES WHERE THE GUN MUST NOT BE CONCEALED, EVEN WHILE HUNTING.
