275_costner-orange_151Charley Leather Holster is patterned after a traditional 2 loop holster from the 1880s. It is also the same look worn by Charley, in that excellent western film, Open Range. This holster is a closed toe design and is shown in the movie color, antique brown. Available in all colors. Charley’s Chaps

Kevin Costner’s, Open Range, has a different premise than many westerns of this type. In the old westerns, range wars erupted when farmers attempted to put up barb wire across open range. In this movie Boss Spearman, Charley Waite, and their 2 man crew are moving their herd of cattle across community range, and are denigrated as, Free Grazers, by the local cattle magnate. Who then proceeds to try to steal their herd, kills their friend, their dog, and puts their 16 year old wrangler on his death bed.

Bad move. Turns out Charley Waite is a rerformed gun man, with some psychological issues from his days as a hired pistol fighter. The Town rallies around the out-gunned strangers, and the final gunfight scenes are some of the best ever staged and one of the movies highlights. Here’s Charleys Hat ~ Boss Spearmans

GUNBELT MEASUREMENT and BUCKLES (below)

Correct Gun Belt Measurement

correct gunbelt measurement

correct gunbelt measurement

Getting the correct gun belt measurement is easy if you follow some simple steps.

  1. Put on a pair of britches/pants you plan to wear with your gun belt
  2. Have handy any belt that currently fits you. You can even use a piece of string.
  3. Put the belt on and buckle it where you will wear your gun belt Slightly down over your hips in most cases. Remember the gun belt will be supporting another 4 pounds per pistol and holster {about 3 lbs for the pistol; 1 lb for the holster} That weight will drag the belt down. You may want to go another notch tighter in your measuring.
  4. Make note of the most comfortable hole in which the buckle goes through.
  5. Lay the belt on a flat surface and measure from the end of the buckle to the most comfortable hole. See picture below.
  6. Distance from the buckle end to the centre hole of your belt will be the measurement you supply us with. This is now your gun-belt size.
  7. Generally this measurement should be about 3 to 4 inches larger than your jean size.
