Grabbed a gently used one for a good price. Broken in to match the 228. I can definitely see what the fuss is about the VMII, it's well worth the money and worth waiting for. Extremely comfortable and stable. If you think $100-140 is too much to spend for a leather holster, its because you've never used a good leather holster. Next up, some Nills, then a reverse two tone from CCR.
