The “Tequila Ladies rig” is designed to meet the specific needs of women shooters. Curved on the ends to sit flat on the hips; the new TQL rig will be more comfortable during extended use.
After many requests for a cowboy action shooting rig designed specifically for women, we decided to give it a shot. We wanted to create a rig that would fill the design needs of women shooters while keeping the competitive features Kirkpatrick Leather has become known for among single action shooters.
Once again, we called on Five-Time Modern World Champion Tequila to lend a hand. It seems that Tequila knows everyone, so we asked him to get some ideas from women shooters for a more comfortable belt. Each of the ladies came back with a request for a curved belt with tapered ends and the buckle in the back. Also mentioned was a design with sewn shot shell loops on the pistol belt eliminating the need for a separate shotshell belt.
Using the information gathered by Tequila, Mike went to work on designing the newest addition to the Kirkpatrick line…the new Tequila Ladies rig. The final product is what you see here. A rig designed with the help of female cowboy action shooters to add comfort and adjust ability without sacrificing function.
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. The belts are made using heavy 9 oz. saddle leather and are fully leather lined. Come equipped with high quality solid steel and brass hardware. Our custom gun belts are built to last a lifetime.
