HAND FORMING & DETAILING
There seems to be some confusion on the method we use to mold and detail our holsters, so please allow us to clarify.
All forming to the weapon, all the detailing placing more of the leather in contact with the weapon, IS DONE 100% BY HAND!
We never use a vacuum system and seldom use a press to form and detail, but when we do, we will specify it.
We know there are those of you out there that feel our holsters look too good with superb consistency and cannot be done by hand. It is, we do and its just a lot more work.
ALL MATERIALS MADE AND TANNED IN THE USA
All we use in the building of any of our gun leather items are components and materials made right here in the USA.
Our leather is Wickett & Craig of Pennsylvania, one of the oldest of US tanneries.
Our thread is manufactured here in the US.
Our holster clips are all treated spring steel from JRM out of New Jersey.
All hardware is from a US supplier.
We buy and use full thickness Wickett & Craig 8-10 ounce sides and backs to make most OWB holsters. These sides are from 1/8" to 5/32" thick, unlike most makers and manufacturers who use much thinner and less durable leather.
When you see OUR listings you will see different "WEIGHT" or "Ounce" sizes for the leather used in the building of the holster. Leather is gauged in thickness by how much it weights for a certain size area. I have listed a simple conversion table to help out.
Below is a chart to determine the thickness in inches
1 Ounce = 1/64" 2 Ounce = 1/32" 3 Ounce = 3/64"
4 Ounce - 1/16" 5 Ounce = 5/64" 6 Ounce = 3/32"
7 Ounce = 7/64" 8 Ounce = 1/8" 9 Ounce = 9/64"
10 Ounce = 5/32" 11 Ounce = 11/64" 12 Ounce = 3/16"
13 Ounce = 13/64" 14 Ounce = 7/32" 15 Ounce = 15/64"
16 Ounce = 1/4"
PANCAKE & AVENGER holsters are made from 8-10 ounce leather.
Clip on holsters are made from 6-7 ounce and 7-8 ounce leather.
IWB in the waist holsters are made from 6-7 ounce and 7-8 ounce leather.
Unless specified in a listing the available colors are as listed.
Black - Wickett & Craig USA skirting/holster drum dyed leather.
I buy 8-10 ounce thickness sides and backs.
Brown -Wickett & Craig USA brown skirting/holster drum dyed leather.
I buy 8-10 ounce thickness sides and backs.
Chocolate Brown - Havana brown Wickett & Craig with a chocolate coloring.
Only available in a 8-9 ounce thickness.
Dark Brown - Custom dyed Wickett & Craig brown skirting/holster leather.
I buy 8-10 ounce thickness sides and backs, then re-spray with dark brown dye.
Available by request only.
Free Range dyed colors are those that are spray dyed here in the shop and tend to reflect the grain and character of the leather. Unlike tannery dyed leather the dye or stain is only surface deep.
HOLSTER STYLES WE MAKE
AVENGER OWB holsters - designed for security and comfort. Avengers offer style with performance with little conceal ability sacrificed.
PANCAKE OWB holsters - I DO NOT make flat back pancakes. Ours are two equal halves with the pistol divided in half. They offer excellent retention and conceal ability but lack in one hand holstering.
IWB In the Waist - great concealment in a lightweight package. With or without reinforced throats in a variety of styles.
CLIP-ON- great for the range or outdoor activities depending on the clip system you choose. Security and retention with either safety straps or tension systems.
Sewn sight tunnels are two leather bars sewn into the crown of any wrap around holster. They run the length of the holster and reduce drag of the front sight. Eliminate sight hang up and slow or eliminate front sight finish wear.
Double stitched holsters have two stitch lines running parallel to one another. Unlike widely spaced decorative double stitching my lines are so close together they almost double the strength of ordinary stitching.
ORDERING A HOLSTER NOT ALREADY MADE
There is a section titled "Order A Holster" if you would like to order an item.
All other sections offer items that are made, in stock and ready to ship.
I am a Marine Corps veteran building some of the "Best Dang" gun leather items you will find anywhere.
Maker of gun leather items such as holsters, carry belts and accessories. Please ask if you have questions. There are no stupid questions here.
I guaranty 100% satisfaction with any of our work.
