Hand made cowboy leather from The Last Best West.

ALL OUR HOLSTERS ARE LINED. Our gun belt backs are suede so the belt stays where it is buckled. All holsters have a hammer tie down or strap across the action. All our holsters can be ordered in either of the draw styles. Cross-draw or strong-hand draw. For the twist draw we recommend our classic Slim Jim holster.

Traditional Slim Jim Holster
Is what Wild Bill would have used with his Navy 36s’, when he wasn’t tucking them in his sash. Patterned after the California Slim Jim shown in the leather makers Bible, Packing Iron. Nothing fancy – the look is, sleek, elegant, and versatile. These holsters adapt well for any of the three draws you may want to use. Cross-Draw, Strong-hand draw, or the twist or Hickok draw.

What does Custom mean?
We make our Hand Made Holsters, belts and Indian Rifle Sheaths to fit your firearms. We offer custom fit on our holsters for almost any pistol, and make our gun and cartridge belts to your waist and cartridge size. Enter your info in the comments box during checkout.
