Welcome from Central Florida. I can recommend three manufacturers for sure.
Milt Sparks, Tucker, and Wright. You can’t go wrong with either of them.

Thank you Iíll look into them, I heard the finish wears off on Kimber in leather holsters can you confirm that? Used to carrying Glock in Kydex never had a issue, never used leathee

I have 2 OWB and 1 hybrid Wright Leather Works holsters. I've been carrying my Ultra Tactical daily for 2 years and there isn't a mark on the gun.

Wright leather works in Ohio is my first choice and worth the wait. Have also had great holsters from Tucker Leather in TX.

I've never owned a Kydex holster but I've read they're more prone to wearing down your finish than leather?

This is from the Theis Holster website

I do not line my holsters, and here is my take on this. I have carried both my G27 and my G30 in this type holster for 6 years and there is no holster wear on the leather side of the slide and no holster wear on the kydex side either. It is not the kydex or the leather that wears the finish off the firearm it is the dust particles that settle between the firearm and your holster. As you walk they work on your firearm like sand paper. If you carry every day take a real close look at inside your holster and around the trigger of your firearm and you will see what I am talking about. I unholster every night and at least twice a week wipe down my firearm and inside my holster and I believe that this is why my guns show no holster wear.

Same year after 6 years no wear shown on my Glocks it was something someone mentioned about their Kimber, kind of thought it might have been a neglect issue, thanks for the info

Cleaning my holster is a part of cleaning my carry gun. I do it on a regular basis. I use Fiebing's Foaming Saddle Soap.
