I made my first leather holster in 1995. At that time, I had a couple handguns and more than a dozen
holsters that did not meet my needs or expectations. My needs were simple. I needed a holster that
would control the firearm in a safe and secure manner. I needed a holster that would allow me to easily
conceal my firearm as required in my state. Lastly, I needed a holster that would be comfortable enough
to wear all day. So, I went to work and started making holsters that met my needs. Control – Conceal –
Comfort – “what a holster should be”.

Using the best materials available, patterns entirely of my own design, time tested techniques and years
of skill and craftsmanship, I make a variety of holsters for many popular handguns. Each holster is made one at a time for a specific make and model, not a one-size-fits-all holster. All my holsters are cut by hand, dyed by hand, stitched, wet molded, finished and burnished by hand. I pay great attention to every detail to make holsters that will meet your expectations.

Making great looking high-quality holsters is a blast. I love being in the outdoors. I love hunting,
shooting, and collecting guns, and I have been working with leather since the age of 12. Holster making
just adds to the fun!
