So I picked up a 1978 dated PD the other day, and it's in great shape and very shiny. It has made me think that it deserves a proper holster.
It fits into my leftover 1911 stuff, but the Arratoonian is for a 5" and both it and the Kydex are just a little too modern. But then I realized I have a generalized gap in my knowledge.
Whether cops or mobsters (half my family was low-level Sicilian mobsters) or if Cooper or Awerbuck ever said so, what DID people carry in during the 70s for concealment, specifically?
Not super interested in tracking down an original Jackass, so belt holsters of a style someone makes today, I hope.
But I also love history so anything about how holster design moved onward from the post war era would be interesting.
