Looking For Holsters With Super Nice hand Tooling

Lost all my bookmarks some time ago, now I'm trying to find the sites of several holster makers I had saved. They were for very nice hand tooled/stamped designed holsters. The type I've seen worn by the Texas Rangers and several other agencies.

I like holsters that seem to exhibit themselves as works of art. Not looking for exotic skins such as Shark, Ostrich, and the like, just super nice hand tooling on horse and/or cow hide.

I though I would ask here before spending all the time required to look for them again. Money if no object, just as long as the designs are nice, new, and even strange looking.

Thanks!

Do you have photos of what you like? What pistols/revolvers?

Here are a few...

All those make holsters for modern firearms as well as western.

Sorry Russ, no pictures. Just some holsters that I had seen on the sites I lost.

But I do believe you've posted their links for me.


Thank you much!

Try Rudy at Black Hills Leather in Lerado. He's done several holsters for me and he's not overly expensive or over booked and backlogged.
