I specialize in inside-the-waistband (IWB) holsters for classic guns. I also make a few IWB holsters for common concealed carry pistols and revolvers, and a few pancake holsters. All my holsters are handmade,
double-stitched by hand, and generally more expensive than machine-made holsters. But you get what you pay for. Since each holster is individually hand crafted, what you buy may differ slightly from the photos below.
I make holsters almost exclusively in horsehide. I use calfskin or goat kid to line some holsters, in an attempt to reduce wear on the finish of the gun, but I make no guarantee about the efficacy of linings in holsters.
I make holsters to fit the following guns:
- Charter Arms .44 Bulldog w/ 3 inch barrel - IWB holster only
- Colt Agent, Cobra, Detective Special, Commando Spec., new or old style - IWB
- SIG P-238 - IWB holster
- Kimber K6S - IWB holster
- Kimber Solo Carry - IWB holster
- Ruger LCP - IWB holster
- Ruger LC9 - IWB holster

- Seecamp .32 or .380 - pancake belt holster
- Smith & Wesson J-frame (Model 36 or 37, 1.75, 2.125 or 3 inch barrel) - IWB holster
- Smith & Wesson J-frame (Model 60, 3 inch barrel) - IWB holster

All holsters are made to order. Shipping for small holsters in the U.S. is $7.15 and subject to change over time. Overseas
shipping usually runs about $25-$30. I accept PayPal, cashier's checks, and money orders. I do not accept personal checks.
Generally I prefer to make the holster first, then send the customer photographs, then accept payment. I require prepayment in the case of left-hand holsters or any holster that might be difficult to sell otherwise.
