99.1% Customer Satisfaction
"Materials and craftsmanship are superior. It’s an absolute perfect fit for my CZ P10z, custom fitted for the threaded barrel and suppressor ready sights. Worth every penny and you’ll be handing it down to your kids or grandkids someday!"
- Steven of Cypress, TX
"The best custom holster maker that I have found. I ordered several custom holsters for some client gifts. They looked amazing and fit perfectly. Loved them so much I now carry one myself. Love the fit and finish. Really a first class true custom holster. I wear it everyday."
-Robert of Ft. Worth, TX
"Very glad to have made this purchase. Worth the money. I have tried some other really expensive leather holsters, and they don't seem to have the snug wrap around my hip like this holster does. Happy with the belt clips as well. I'd absolutely recommend these guys. I also made one request into customer service, and got a response immediately. That's the type of interaction I want with people I do business with!"

Our philosophy is simple - Exceed your expectations no matter the cost. We'll never mass-produce, we'll never sacrifice quality, and nothing will ever leave our shop unless we're certain it will last 100 years. Every piece of leather is built with pride and integrity to provide a lifetime of satisfaction. We're so confident in our talented craftsmen, durable materials, and outstanding designs, that we warranty them against workmanship for 100 years.
The Defender is designed for strong side carry, at approximately 3-5:30 on your hip, and are designed to carry your gun with a 15 -degree forward cant (angle). This helps to maximize the ability to conceal the firearm. It also aids in a quick, smooth draw and presentation.
Comfortably draw and re-holster the firearm...
Made specifically for each firearm, our holsters are individually built for each pistol, to ensure that each holster has excellent retention and fits like a glove. During the fitting process, your holster will be molded with a hydraulic press to form the shape of your firearm - your holster will fit like a glove.
Leather with “Gentleman-like traits”...
Our holsters are soft & strong, yet quietly ready for anything. We pride ourselves on offering undoubtedly reliable holsters that are comfortably casual, even while under pressure. The water resistant finish provides protection against rain, sleet, and snow. Our leather holsters age with a natural patina and will enhance with wear.
The reinforced opening makes it easier to re-holster the firearm under normal and stressful situations. You’ll be able to safely and confidently re-holster your firearm, without the holster mouth obstructing your access.
Wildlife Conservation Program...
Our holsters tell stories of majestic wild animals that were harvested sustainably through national wildlife programs. We’re committed to supporting nonprofit groups that improve wildlife conditions and advocate for nature. At checkout, you’ll choose a conservation group to donate 1% of the order toward - together we’ll make sure our beautiful world continues to flourish for future generations.
Never sacrifice quality and never mass produce...
Nothing profoundly satisfying happens overnight, including our holsters. Our team of master craftsmen delicately handcraft each holster entirely by hand. While you may think we’re out fishing, we’re actually meticulously perfecting your holster to ensure it provides generational satisfaction. Your grandkids will enjoy it as much as you did. Our current lead time is between 5-6 weeks, before your holster will ship.
Field tested by Dads, Cowboys, Professional Athletes, Game Wardens, and by our nation’s war hero's, our collections will outlast and outperform all. Like a great hunting dog, our holsters are there when you need them. We’ve spent months in development by spending weeks in the duck blind, days in deer stand, and weekends on the river, all to ensure each product will withstand a lifetime of abuse.
