PHOTOS
All pictures of active listings are of the ACTUAL item. The only stock pictures we use are for "Made to Order" listings only. We do this because each and every item is uniquely different even in the same model and color.
We take the time to make a picture of each one and each has it's own listing so you know exactly what you are buying.

HAND FORMING & DETAILING
There seems to be some confusion on the method we use to mold and detail our holsters, so please allow us to clarify.
All forming to the weapon, all the detailing placing more of the leather in contact with the weapon, IS DONE 100% BY HAND!
We never use a vacuum system and seldom use a press to form and detail, but when we do, we will specify it.
We know there are those of you out there that feel our holsters look too good with superb consistency and cannot be done by hand. It is, we do and its just a lot more work.

ALL MATERIALS MADE AND TANNED IN THE USA
All we use in the building of any of our gun leather items are components and materials made right here in the USA.
Our leather is Wickett & Craig of Pennsylvania, one of the oldest of US tanneries.
Our thread is manufactured here in the US.
Our holster clips are all treated spring steel from JRM out of New Jersey.
All hardware is from a US supplier.

LEATHER THICKNESS
We buy and use full thickness Wickett & Craig 8-10 ounce sides and backs to make most OWB holsters. These sides are from 1/8" to 5/32" thick, unlike most makers and manufacturers who use much thinner and less durable leather.
When you see OUR listings you will see different "WEIGHT" or "Ounce" sizes for the leather used in the building of the holster. Leather is gauged in thickness by how much it weights for a certain size area. I have listed a simple conversion table to help out.

Below is a chart to determine the thickness in inches
1 Ounce = 1/64" 2 Ounce = 1/32" 3 Ounce = 3/64"
4 Ounce - 1/16" 5 Ounce = 5/64" 6 Ounce = 3/32"
7 Ounce = 7/64" 8 Ounce = 1/8" 9 Ounce = 9/64"
10 Ounce = 5/32" 11 Ounce = 11/64" 12 Ounce = 3/16"
13 Ounce = 13/64" 14 Ounce = 7/32" 15 Ounce = 15/64"
16 Ounce = 1/4"

PANCAKE & AVENGER holsters are made from 8-10 ounce leather.
Clip on holsters are made from 6-7 ounce and 7-8 ounce leather.
IWB in the waist holsters are made from 6-7 ounce and 7-8 ounce leather.

Unless specified in a listing the available colors are as listed.
Black - Wickett & Craig USA skirting/holster drum dyed leather.
I buy 8-10 ounce thickness sides and backs.
Brown -Wickett & Craig USA brown skirting/holster drum dyed leather.
I buy 8-10 ounce thickness sides and backs.
