Tom Threepersons was a law enforcement officer in the El Paso, Texas, Sheriffs, and Police Departments. Because of the automobile, he redesigned the belt holster in the 1920s into the world’s first quick-draw holster. He took his ideas to Sam Myers, an El Paso saddle maker, and Tom soon had a new holster made to his specifications. The holster became an instant success with his fellow El Paso officers, and within a few years Myers was advertising a “Threepersons, quick-draw holster” in their leather catalog.
Toms 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, making the grip easy to grab quickly. The Threepersons holster design became the basis for the standard FBI holster, and would became known as the “FBI Tilt”.
