In the early 1920s all levels of law enforcement were transitioning to automobiles, like the Ford Model T. This was to keep up with the criminals and outlaws they chased. Holsters that worked fine on horseback were neither comfortable nor was it easy to acquire your pistol in the tight confines of an automobile seat. This sent career Peace Officer and Prohibition Agent, Tom Threepersons, on his redesign of the Threepersons Single Action Holster. Tom’s goal was to make it better for a fast draw and for wearing and accessing in an automobile.
Tom’s re-design of the belt holster cut around the trigger guard, exposing it completely, along with most of the top of the cylinder and all of the hammer. He tilted the holster backwards to put more of the butt of the pistol forward as well as placing it above the waist line while seated in an automobile. This made the grip easy to grab quickly. The Threepersons holster design became the basis for the standard FBI holster, and indeed became known as the “FBI Tilt”
