What is a "Body Shield"?

A body shield is a piece of the holster that extends above the rear of the holster or back panel. It provides a layer of protection (buffer) between you and the back of the firearm. In addition, it also helps with ease in reholstering the firearm. Our body shields are doubled up, with 2 layers of leather for additional reinforcement that aid in preventing collapse.

What is a "Reenforcement Panel"?

This is a leather panel placed on the front of the holster. This panel provides additional strength and stability to the mouth of the holster; helping to prevent collapse and aid in reholstering. In addition, it is aesthetically pleasing as it can be an essential part of the design incorporating exotic inlays, overlays and stitching.

How much is this going to cost me?

While I do provide "starting at" costs on the pricing page; the final cost cannot to be determined until after we have a brief discussion to finalize all the details of your specific holster. Details such as type and amount of exotics, lined vs. unlined, thumb break or open top and special requests will influence the final cost.  Typically 50% of the final cost is due prior to starting the build. Upon completion and prior to shipment the remaining balance is due. Please do not send any money until we have had a brief phone discussion.

Can you build a holster for any handgun?

I would love to be able to answer "Yes" to this; but unfortunately I can not. There are some handguns that I can not get a suitable replica for. Due to this, the cost of some replicas and the time involved in custom pattern making are just some of the reasons why many craftsmen will only offer holsters to specific guns and model. However,  I will try my best to accommodate your specific holster requests. In addition, there may be specific requests that I either do not or will not build. If this is the case, I will do my best to refer you to a builder that that does.

How should I clean and maintain my holster?

While there is more "Do Not's" than "Do's" this requires its own separate page. Please Refer to the "Care and Maintenance" tab for details

Why do you need to have a discussion with me prior to my order?

My primary goal is to exceed your expectations, I am building this holster specifically for your, Because of this, I need to know the detail of what you are looking for. I promise to take as little of your time as possible.
