Handmade Holsters
by Ed Buffaloe

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 for very small guns.  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.

All holsters are made to order.  Shipping for small holsters in the U.S. is $7.90 and subject to change over time.  Overseas shipping usually runs about $35.  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.
