Suspender Holster
« on: August 16, 2022, 05:01:38 PM »


Good Evening Gents,

One of the holsters I offer is a version of the Suspender holster pictured in “Packing Iron” pictured below is my prototype and as you can see it’s seen some use. I’ve packed a brace of SAAs in these around the farm and have to say they’re some of my favorite holsters. They ride well and are surprisingly comfortable. They conceal my 4 3/4” Ubertis very well and with a shirt or coat over them they’re practically invisible.

I make mine from 6-7oz Hermann Oak finished with Extra Virgin Olive Oil. They’re sewn with very high quality linen thread waxed with coad. I try to keep my materials as close as possible to those used in the period.

Changes I made to the design from PI were slightly refined flaps and an open toe. Sometimes I’ll carry a brace of 7 1/2” guns in them and find they have no problems with the sign clearing the toe.

Pardon my crude work on this holster, it’s rather rough. Was experimenting with a couple new tools.

God Bless everyone and hope y’all have a great rest of the week!

That's quite an interesting holster design. It's good to hear they work well. Nice job on this one.

The trouble with Packing Iron is it's full of so many cool ideas. ;D

Nicely done. Could you show a picture of it attached to suspenders?

Skeeter beat me to the question.  Would love to see a shot of them on.   Also, if that is crude, I am going to quit posting.  It looks great!

Here’s a quick shot of the holster attached. Whenever I get the chance I’ll try and do some detailed photos of them on.

Thanks for all the kind words guys!

Very clever. Old school "inside the waistband" I LIKE it.

Since Ethan didn't admit to it, I'll rat him out- yep, that's him.  ;) BTW, what's your handle on IG, Rube? I'd like to check you out. Love your work. Mine is @axe_and_anvil- traditional blacksmithing and etc.
