We stand for the
flag, and kneel for our fallen brothers.
We are a family of public service and military and want everyone to know.
As of 2016 we
have moved from Alvin, Texas to Hayesville, North Carolina
We feel it is impossible to buy a personal holster
or rig without talking to the craftsman. John discusses all the options and
choices with his customers before an order is placed so each shooter will be
happy with the final result. We work as quickly as possible to complete every
project in the order that they were received and are always working to reduce
the time frame. Please understand that fancier rigs will require extra time to
complete. We have taken steps to improve our time schedule by reducing items
outside of CAS gear and believe that we should stay with the kind of work we
know best. We can refer you to other makers that make quality gear outside of
our normal range if you do not see what you are looking for here.
We are proud to be a U. S. company and primarily use domestic leather from
Hermann Oak and Fiebing's dye and finish products. We will happily ship
International packages to our Cowboy Shooting friends around the world. However,
We will not ship any products to China or entertain any proposals for
distribution from Chinese based companies. We strive to keep our product costs
down and quality to the highest standards, and are not interested in leather
distribution from foreign sources or input from outside website services, so
please do not contact us for these. We do not need any website services.
When you are ready to order or just have a question give John a call at
(713) 703-1915 or email him at
Belt measurements: The measurement for a gun
belt is simple for those that already have some kind of shooting rig. Measure an
old shooting belt while laid out flat. Measure the length that is used when
worn, from the inside edge of the buckle to the hole that is used when the belt
is normally worn. This will give an overall length for a new belt using a
similar type. Also include your pants size to help us confirm we have the
correct size. It is best to round up with heavy belts.
For those that are ordering their first gun belt, use a tape measure, to measure
over the top of the clothing normally worn, such as jeans or CAS clothes. The
measurement should be made around the upper hips, or where the gun belt will be
worn. A heavy gun belt will usually be about 5 inches longer than your waist
size, but everyone is built differently and extra gear on the belt can change
the dimensions. We do want your pant size as well to make sure we are using
We will always work with a customer to get this measurement right. If it is
ordered the wrong length, we will exchange the belt or modify the belt, but
there may be an additional charge and it is expected to be returned unused, and
the customer will need to cover shipping both ways. Personalized belts will not
be exchanged if ordered the wrong length, so just be extra careful. Custom,
modified or personalized work orders may not be returned or refunded, as they
may not be resold. If we make an error on the length, we will exchange or
replace the belt with no questions asked.
Options: We offer a product line of
holsters, and the customer is encouraged to make the gear personal and one of a
kind. There are numerous options that are no extra expense to our customers to
tailor your shooting rig. But this does not include structural modifications.
Color combination: Any gear can be two tone
or have accents of another color, such as a dark brown holster with a light
brown holster strap.
Holster straps: Almost all holsters can be
made with or without a holster strap around the body of the holster. The holster
body is secured by Chicago screws and the strap is decorative.
Hammer loops: Some shooters prefer a hammer
loop to secure the gun in the holster. All holsters are made without them unless
they are requested. There is no charge for hammer ties.
Thread color: The thread color will be
matched to the main leather color on most gear. But the customer may select from
several other colors to make a visual statement. We mainly use, brown, black and
natural; but also have red, blue, tan and purple.
Initials: There is no charge for adding
initials to your holster or belt.
Belt lining: The lined belts are normally
lined with suede, but may be lined with smooth leather as well for an additional
charge. Both are about 3-4 ounce leather and are a personal choice of the
Tie downs: A leg tie down is not recommended
for our holsters. The holsters are wet molded and mated to the belt and a leg
tie will cause damage by flexing the holster with forced movement.
Buckle style: Standard buckles are clip
corner style in solid brass and nickel over brass, and roller buckles in
stainless steel and brass. If there is another style desired, please let us know
and we may be able to accommodate.
