Tom Threepersons was a law enforcement officer in El Paso, Texas, Sheriffs, and Police Departments, and several years of service fighting bootlegging along the Mexican border for the US Prohibition Service.

Threepersons Schofield Holster Ready to Ship 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.
He took his ideas to Sam Myers, an El Paso saddle maker. Tom soon had a new holster made to his specifications. The holster became an instant success with his fellow El Paso officers. Within a few years Myers was advertising a “Threepersons, quick-draw holster” in their leather catalog.
Tom’s re-design of the belt holster cut around the trigger guard, exposing it completely, along with all of the hammer.
