Outside the Waistband
I decided to come up with an Old School Scabbard (OSS) for people that prefer a snubbie revolver in the OWB appendix position. This holster has a muzzle forward rake and is designed to be carried AOWB. It pulls the grip right into that little hollow in front of the hip and is very comfortable, even while sitting. It also makes for a very fast draw, without much telegraphing.
These will be available for 2-4" revolvers.
SOB-5 Small of the Back 5 O'clock - This holster is very specific in it's use. I recommend this to people who may find themselves standing a lot at work, such as Plainclothes Security officers, Shop owners, etc. This hides the handgun quite well, yet provides for a fast draw. It is comfortable to wear while seated, but may be impeded on the draw if wearing a seat belt. This holster is actually worn right behind the hip, to the side of the spine. It is NOT worn over the spine like similar designs. This holster works well for women with longer torsos.
This holster now comes with a removable foam yaw pad on the back to control tucking of the grip.
BS-CDA Belt Slide Cross Draw / Appendix - This holster is designed for most Pistols and Revolvers. Based on the size of the handgun, there are slight variations on how high the trigger guards sits in relation to the belt. The rake angle provides for a very natural draw in the Appendix or Cross draw carry position. Your gun is almost always accessible to you, even while sitting and driving. in the Cross Draw carry mode, you want to pay particular attention to weapon retention.
The size of the handgun will have direct effect on the clothing this model will work with. Since it is an OWB holster, it works best with a suit jacket or similar open front coats. For women I recommend the trigger guard be placed more in line with the belt, to avoid the grip digging into the rib-cage. An added benifit to this holster is, you can use it for a psuedo small of the back holster, by ordering it in the opposite hand (BS-SSC). You would still wear it on your strong side at about 5 o'clock. This holster now comes with a removable foam yaw pad on the back to control tucking of the grip.
HR-1 High Ride - I designed this holster to be worn very high above the bottom of the belt line. With an aggressive· rake, this holster makes for a very concealable holster that has a fast presentation. The wedge shape design maximizes molded in retention, while allowing the gun to clear leather as fast as possible. It works best with compact handguns, to keep the muzzle of the gun just above the belt bottom. It can be made for full size guns, with a minor loss of concealment. The muzzle
of the gun will have to extend down slightly farther and can be covered by a regular jacket. This holster will work well for taller women with longer torsos. Unfortunately, it rides to high for shorter women.
BS-SS Belt Slide-Strong Side - This is a great holster with wide flanges that help conform to your body with use. It also does a great job of breaking up the silhouette of the gun. It is usually carried in the 3-5 o'clock position, right on, or behind your strong side hip. Now, you do have to consider the size of gun you carry in relation to the height you wear your pants. If you are wearing jeans that ride lower on your hips, you may want to limit your gun to a compact size, otherwise this will fit most normal handguns. This holster works best with suit jackets, tails out shirts, sweatshirts and large t-shirts.
BS-SN Belt Slide-Snap -· I have heard the need from customers asking for the BS-SS in a snap on version. The snap on flanges are integral with the rear body of the holster. This makes for a much trimmer holster body, by not adding an extra layer of leather on the back of the holster. (I do offer another style that has separate flanges, as shown on the top picture. I can supply the holster either way). This is a great holster with wide flanges that help conform to your body with use. It also does a great job of breaking up the silhouette of the gun.

SK Field Holster - The SK is the only non-concealed field holster I currently produce. It's origins lay in the designs of Hank Sloan and Elmer Keith. Instead of using an adjustable sewn in gusset, like the original, the SK uses a tensioning rubber grommet.The hammer shroud is standard and protects the lining of jackets and keeps the hammer from snagging.
It can come with a neutral rake, 15 degree rear rake, or 15 degree forward rake. This holster is available for most revolvers.
SSA - This Strong Side Nelson#1/Avenger inspired holster has been modified to use two rigid belt tunnels and I have removed the extra web of leather under the trigger guard to reduce bulk.
This holster is available with a 5 degree muzzle forward rake(ejection port runs about even with the top of the belt), neutral rake or 5 degree muzzle rearward rake(ejection port runs approximatetly in the middle of the belt). This makes it ideals suited for both strong side carry as well as crossdraw.
The streamlined reinforcement, coupled with a proprietary hardening process, make the SSA a very durable holster.
SSM - The SSM is a Minimalist Scabbard Holster. Designed for range work and plain clothes carry, this holster offer a lightning fast draw. Though riding a little lower, the root of the grip completely clears your belt line, allowing for· a full combat grip. The SSM is a light weight holster that is made to stand up to use, with double stitching through out and molded with our proprietary hardening process. It comes standard with 20 degrees of rake and mounts via a belt tunnel, molded and sewn on the backside.
It is truly a "less is more" holster, that is not only functioal but aesthetically pleasing as well. It lends itself well to exotic overlays, for your custom BBQ rig. (Pictured in Burgundy Lizard with Black Frog accent)
