Comfortably draw and re-holster the firearm...
Made specifically for each firearm, our holsters are individually built for each pistol, to ensure that each holster has excellent retention and fits like a glove. During the fitting process, your holster will be molded with a hydraulic press to form the shape of your firearm - your holster will fit like a glove.
Leather with “Gentleman-like traits”...
Our holsters are soft & strong, yet quietly ready for anything. We pride ourselves on offering undoubtedly reliable holsters that are comfortably casual, even while under pressure. The water resistant finish provides protection against rain, sleet, and snow. Our leather holsters age with a natural patina and will enhance with wear.
The reinforced opening makes it easier to re-holster the firearm under normal and stressful situations. You’ll be able to safely and confidently re-holster your firearm, without the holster mouth obstructing your access.
Wildlife Conservation Program...
Our holsters tell stories of majestic wild animals that were harvested sustainably through national wildlife programs. We’re committed to supporting nonprofit groups that improve wildlife conditions and advocate for nature. At checkout, you’ll choose a conservation group to donate 1% of the order toward - together we’ll make sure our beautiful world continues to flourish for future generations.
Never sacrifice quality and never mass produce...
Nothing profoundly satisfying happens overnight, including our holsters. Our team of master craftsmen delicately handcraft each holster entirely by hand. While you may think we’re out fishing, we’re actually meticulously perfecting your holster to ensure it provides generational satisfaction. Your grandkids will enjoy it as much as you did. Our current lead time is between 5-6 weeks, before your holster will ship.
Field tested by Dads, Cowboys, Professional Athletes, Game Wardens, and by our nation’s war hero's, our collections will outlast and outperform all. Like a great hunting dog, our holsters are there when you need them. We’ve spent months in development by spending weeks in the duck blind, days in deer stand, and weekends on the river, all to ensure each product will withstand a lifetime of abuse.
QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Would there be pictures available to see how the holster sits at the waist? Also, why is this holster $100 more than the cross draw made by craft? Respectfully, craft’s is much more aesthetically pleasing. Why would I buy this holster instead the craft?
Great question. We will take photos of the holster and we will email them to you. As for why our holsters cost more money than Craft Holsters, that is because we manufacture all of our products in America. Craft is a Slovakian company, and does not advertise where their products are made from. Where and how a company sources it's materials and manufacturers it's products is the largest cost driver. Southern Trapper choose to source all of our leather and produce all of our products in the USA. Craft on the other hand, is not an American company, does not source their leather from America, does not manufacture in America, does not ship from America, and does not pay sales tax in America. If want to buy a product with a limited warranty that was made by a foreign company that does not support America, Craft is option. If you want to invest in a holster with a 100-year warranty, that was made in America, with American materials, by a company that supports Americans, than you should choose Southern Trapper. Does that answer your question about why Craft sells their foreign made holsters for less than our American made holsters?
