Just about anybody who owns and/or carries a firearm for self defense or straps one on as part of their sworn duty to protect the public or our great nation needs a holster to carry that tool...a necessity that must function under the most extreme situations and circumstances...to secure that protective device from good as well as bad weather...as we go about our daily lives or protect our communities or fight enemies both foreign or domestic...whether it be here on the unforgiving streets of our cities or in some far flung corner of the globe...

It must be up to the task !!

This thread is about those crafted and fitted pieces of leather, exotic skin, kydex, and woven nylon fabric that aid us in protecting and carrying our blued iron, stainless steel, and polymer tools that in turn protect us, our families, our communities and our nation.

If you own a firearm...chances are you own a holster...

So...Let's See Them...share their specifications...and maybe even provide website information... to share what we utilize to tote our personal firearms:

High Noon Holsters...

The Split Decision...This leather firearm holster is constructed of thin premium grade cowhide and allows the wearer to completely conceal a small to medium size pistol or revolver without wearing a vest or other outer garment over it.

This holster is worn inside the pants for superior concealment and features combat grip accessibility, necessary for speed when drawing. The Split Decision rides high inside the waist band.

The recommended carry positions to wear this holster are 3, 4, 5. This inside the waistband holster requires only a tucked in shirt for concealment, and is designed for those who cannot consistently wear a concealing outer garment.

A leather extension allows the wearer to tuck his shirt completely over the weapon and holster. The only visible part of this holster is the belt clip. Weapon access is accomplished by pulling the covering shirt up with the weak hand and drawing with the strong hand.

It features a tension screw for adjustment of the draw, open muzzle design, 15 degree forward cant, and an all steel clip that locks onto the belt. The black clip against a black belt fools the eye, you can barely notice it.

The leather is just thick enough to provide the right amount of padding, and thin enough that it just kind of disappears. This is the closest thing to wearing no holster at all. Its that thin.

Available in right or left hand. Numerous Firearm Models Covered. Black finish only.

Cleveland Holsters

All of our conceal carry holsters are so comfortable because we only use smooth American tanned premium dense leather to protect you and your firearm. The superior quality of the leather keeps sweat away from your firearm, while molding to your body. We also extend our design to create a barrier between your skin and the grip of your firearm. This creates the highest level of comfort as no part of your firearm is touching your skin.

And since we burnished the edges to a smooth finish, it won't peel or scrape against your skin. Plus the bottom edge of our holsters feature a continuous curved line. This is far more comfortable than the typical cornered shapes other holsters use to trim tightly around a firearm, but give more pinch points where their holsters can dig into your skin. Ours are one long, smooth curve - no pinch points.

It all comes down to one thing: comfort. And our conceal carry holsters offer comfort like no other. Every idea and material that goes into our design reports to that mission of absolute comfort. Because comfort leads to confidence and security. In fact, comfort is really the reason you're carrying a firearm in the first place.

If your conceal carry (IWB) holster is comfortable to carry for twelve hours, you can carry the kind of firearm you feel more confident about. You don't have to reduce to a smaller weapon for the sake of comfort. Not with our holsters. Because with Cleveland Holsters you can conceal carry a full-frame semi auto without the burden of a full-frame semi auto.

With that level of comfort you're more at ease and don't have the constant reminder that you're carrying. You can live your day the way you want and still have the confidence that when you need to draw your firearm, your conceal carry holster will perform. Every single time.

Texas Gunslinger { by Tom Hancock }

Our holsters and belts are hand made and tooled from American quality, premium saddle cowhide, and are fully soft suede lined to protect your guns. We have a large stock of high quality ready-made rigs for immediate shipment.

Your satisfaction is guaranteed, no questions asked. Return prepaid in original condition within 10 days for a full refund, less shipping.

The 'Gunslinger' ( below ) is made in plain, smooth leather in a dark, rich Mahogany Brown color with 18 bullet loops, and is stocked in 22, 38/357, and 44/45 calibers.

Belts feature a low drop at the holster area so your guns will ride about hand high for a quicker, easier draw. Hand Molded bullet loops are matched to most gun calibers. Most regular waist sizes from 30" to 56" are stocked. Belts sized 48" and larger are slightly higher and may be a special order.

Holsters are the single loop style and are matched to your gun's size and length. They feature an adjustable hammer strap (to hold your gun in safely) and a leg strap (except 'High Rider') to hold it steady on your leg.

Whatever your choice of single or double action handgun or barrel length, it deserves a quality leather holster to hold it secure and protected.

We make single action six gun holsters for Colt, Ruger, Interarms, and more. Just tell us what kind of six-gun you have and we will most likely have a perfect fit for your single action firearm.

Another focus of TEXAS GUNSLINGER is to generate new products for our single action handgun, and handgun hunting customers. Just tell us what you would like to see in our line of products and it could possibly become a reality. If it is a .45 Colt, .44 magnum, .357 magnum or .22 we have the single action holster for you! Before you pay too much for a SINGLE ACTION SHOOTER six-gun holster, take us up on our money back guarantee and compare our dollar for dollar quality…you'll be happy you did!

I’m definitely becoming a Glock guy. Another proud member of the “ugly gun club”!

One of my EDC pistols is the Bersa Thunder 380, and being "old school", I'm partial to leather rigs. Most days I'm wearing this leather pancake holster which is made by Bersa at around 4:00.

Sometimes when I get dressed up or wearing a sports jacket and want to feel like "James Bond 007" I'll wear my Masters shoulder holster which is custom made by Holsterama.

It also has two spare mag pouches on the right side as well as belt tie downs on each side.

I actually own one of those shoulder rigs too...

Very comfortable...especially when you offset the gun weight on the strong side with the two loaded mags on the weak.

I've carried a Colt Gold Cup National Match 1911a1...full size 5" barrel...under a sports coat and no one was the wiser.

I have a pic of me using that rig at a Roaring 20's theme party...with the rig and my Thompson...

But, I don't put my image anywhere on the net. Period.

Hey Dutch, how do you like wearing the shoulder rig? Pros... cons...?
Hey Taz, I don't wear my shoulder rig often, however, when I do it is comfortable like Shooter noted.

Having those two mag pouches on the weak side does help to counterbalance the rig also.

You do notice the added weight on your shoulders, but it's really nothing to concern yourself with as it's very minimal!

When wearing it however, I do have to be mindful of the fact that my weapon is on a different part of my body and not on my hip, as I wear an OWB 99% of the time.

I do like the fact that when wearing it, I don't have to pull my pants up as much from the added weight on my hip LOL! Plus it has belt straps on each side to hold your pants up!

I'll add on a side note, that the ladies think they are super sharp!:cool:

Thanks for the input fellas. I’ve thought about a shoulder rig from time to time. Like y’all I don’t have a lot of use for it, but it’s been a thought.
