It's from Galco. A paddle type called F.E.D. the paddle sticks in the pants, over the belt and there is a snap release to hold the pistol in. Galco has many holsters to choose from for the 1911, and this was my preference. I might have gone with a small of the back holster, and inside the waistband, but since there is no concealed carry in Maryland and the 1911 is so big, I think I'd have to get used to any of the better hidden versions. I like this one because you don't have to thread it through you belt. When you go the bethroom you can take it off and put in the crotch of your pants so you don't leave it in there. I wanted the snap for safety and make it harder for someone ELSE to mess with. That's another disadvantage of Small of the Back. If people see it, they can more easily grab it. The snap adds another level of security for a 1911 carried in Condition One: A round chambered, hammer cocked, safety on.
I already don't like the spare magazine carrier I got with it, and would prefer the horizontal type. This one digs the magazine into my side. Next time, different.
