ALL OUR HOLSTERS ARE LINED. Our gunbelt backs are suede so the belt stays where it is buckled. With the exception of our shoulder holster all holsters have a hammer tie down. 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

All our hand made leather items are made in America, and our Leather Master has been working with leather, hide and fur since 1978. Our leather cowboy holsters; belts and chaps are based on pictures from museums, archival photos and mail order catalogs from the late 1800s and early decades of the 20th century. And of course those great Hollywood Westerns. For truly authentic, top-notch cowboy and gun leather you’ve come to the right place!

Made to order. Made to last. Made in America by the Cowboys at The Last Best West.
