Tom Threepersons Holsters

Home/Custom Leather/Tom Threepersons Holsters

Tom Threepersons 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 indeed became known as the “FBI Tilt”

Most of today’s holster designs owe a nod of thanks to Tom Threepersons for the first innovative approach to gun leather design. And like most innovations it happened because of a need to adapt. The need was for a gun fighter to adapt to a new mode of transportation, and still keep the ability to draw fast on the bad men he chased. Tom Threepersons truly was the last of the great gun fighting old west lawmen.

We are pleased to introduce a complete line of Tom Threepersons Holsters.
