The holster featured here is a reproduction of the Texan pattern shoulder holster. It is one of the most common shoulder holsters of the early 1900’s and preferred means of gun carry for many of the great lawmen and outlaws of the Old West.
This shoulder holster is constructed of premium saddle leather and fully lined with silicone treated suede. It is basket-weave stamped by hand and molded for a precision fit to your revolver. Made for Colt, Ruger, and similar single action revolvers.
We have been proudly making our custom holsters right here in the great state of Texas, since 1950. All our holsters are custom made from high quality American leather.
How our holsters are built
We start by cutting from the best part of the hide. We then hand dye the holster to ensure a rich deep color that will accent your firearm. All our holsters are sewn using seven cord bonded nylon thread and double stitched in all critical areas. The heavy weight construction also makes sure the holsters stay open when re-holstering. Each holster is then hand molded for a perfect fit. The edges are then sanded and hand burnished to a smooth glossy finish. This helps prevent moisture from entering the edges of the leather. They are then polished and finished with a clear coating to protect the finish. Our custom leather holsters are built to last a lifetime.
