Belt: Billets: "Old California", Main Belt Panel :Ocean Wave Border
This is a almost faithful reproduction of the classic Meanea Cheyenne-style holster from the front cover of "Packing Iron". The "almost" stems from the throat area. It has been cut down at trigger and cylinder to fascilitate a faster draw than the original.
Classic Quick Draw
Classic Quick Draw Holster
1950's Buscadero Belt
This is the quintessential holster of the 50’s & 60’s TV western. It features an exposed trigger and a low cut over the cylinder and is fitted to allow the cylinder to spin freely in the holster. There is a screw post “lock down” to keep movement at the belt to a minimum. It also has a leg tie down.

Duffy O'Doone 3/4 Skirt Holster
Double beehive and Snakehead Meander border.
This holster is raked muzzle forward approximately 15 degrees and has been dropped so that the center of the grip frame is at the top of the belt. It has a fully-exposed trigger and is cut low on the cylinder with a slender, open toe. The loop is very wide giving it a business-like yet sleek appearance.
Cowboy Fast Draw
Ocean Flame Border
This is a slim jim holster. It has an amorphously shaped pouch and toe plug typical of later-day holsters. While this style of holster can happily function in the field or for SASS it was specifically designed to comply to the rules for holsters in the sport of Cowboy Fast Draw. It is raked 15 degrees muzzle forward.
Mark Flint’s Rig
Modified HF Brimstone Slim Jim
3-Piece Taper Belt
Holster: Double Shuffle
Belt: (all parts) Double Shuffle
This holster’s pouch is identical to the more traditional HF Brimstone holster with the exception that it is cut lower on the cylinder and has a fully-exposed trigger guard. These modifications allow the pistol to clear leather easier. The 25 degree muzzle forward rake makes for a very comfortable crossdraw. The extra-fancy hammer thong is formed from braided kangaroo lace with a tassel of brown horsehair capped with a pineapple knot. This is not a traditional hammer loop.
Miz Pitty’s Rig
Duke Halfbreed Holster
Double Shuffle border
A plainer version of this holster is the style that "The Duke" carried through most of his later movies. This one has a 15 degree muzzle forward configuration. The belt is a gunfighter style with full border stamping rather than the roughout with plain, smooth billets and cartridge loops as the original was.
Outlaw Gun Rig
Modified Duke Halfbreed Holster with Exposed Trigger
Furstnow with Bugle border
This holster is identical to our standard Duke halfbreed style with the exception that it has the trigger area fully cut away. This is an exceptionally fast holster.
Pocono Kid Slim Jim
3-piece Taper belt
Chain & 4-point star Border
While the pouch style on this holster is typical for late 1800’s slim jims, the loop is not. It has a serious “drop” plus a modest 10 degree muzzle flip to facilitate an easy draw. The trigger guard area has been cut down front and back to fully expose the trigger. This cut was prominent in holsters built by the Heiser saddlery in the early 1900’s.
