Custom Leather Holster

Having crafted over 1,000 custom holsters, building custom leather holsters is one of our greatest strengths and is certainly our specialty. Each custom holster is made entirely to order for each specific firearm to ensure a perfect fit. Our process is simple, build each holster one-a-time with the highest quality materials, so that each piece is worthy of being passed down for generations. Whether you have a rare firearm, unique lasers, lights, and optics, our talented crew of craftsmen will be able to deliver a holster that is comfortable, exceptionally crafted, and a true work of art.

How To Order A Custom Holster

Please follow this guide while ordering your custom holster. We will promptly call you to confirm the details of your order. You can also call us at 843-501-2771 to place an order over the phone.

Step 1) Choose your firearm manufacturer, model number, and any modifications (lights/lasers/red dots) from the drop down menu above.

Step 2) Choose how you would like to carry the holster, as an outside-the-waistband or inside-the-waistband or dual carry (has belt slots for OWB and comes with IWB clips that attached to belt slots)

Step 3) Choose the style of holster. A taco style holster is made one piece of leather that is sewn together. A pancake style holster is made from two pieces of leather that are sewn together.

Step 4) Choose how you would like the holster to attach to your belt.

  • Belt Slide - Your belt will be fed through the belt slots. Our belt slots are cut to 1.75", so that they will fit a 1.5" gun belt.
  • Metal Clips - The holster will clip onto your belt with one (or more) reinforced metal clips. Our metal clips are made for 1.5" gun belts and are very durable. The "tooth" on the the clip will secure the belt to the holster and will not damage your belt.
  • Leather Snap - Our leather snaps are made to match the holster and your belt, which naturally camouflages the holster snaps on your belt for ultimate concealment.
  • Paddle - Our plastic paddles are lightweight and comfortable and are made for 1.5" gun belts.

Step 4) Carry Position and Dominant Hand- Choose how you would to carry the holster on your belt and whether you shoot right handed or left handed.

  • Dominant Side - Also known as strong side carry, is where you carry the firearm on the same hip as you dominant hand. If you are right handed, your holster will be on your right hip.
  • Appendix - This is the most common concealed carry position, and is where you carry the firearm near your belly button.
  • Cross Draw - This is where you use your dominant hand to reach across your body to draw the firearm. If you are right hand dominant, the holster will be on the left side of your body.
  • Back - This is position is generally between 4:00 and 8:00 o'clock on your back. You can carry it anywhere between your hips.

Step 5) Choose type of leather. We have a wide range of types of leather to choose from. All of our exotic leather is dyed to order and we will call to confirm the colors that you would like.

Step 6) Choose if you would like a thumb break. A thumb break is the snap that covers the slide/hammer of the firearm, which prevents the firearm from being removed from the holster, when the snap is engaged. Each holster is made to be very snug, and a thumb break is not necessary, but is recommend if holster will be worn while riding ATV's/horseback, or other related activities. We can make the thumb break for either locked & cocked or hammer-down positions.

Step 7) Choose thread color - Available in a range of colors.

Step 8) Choose if you would like the holster to be lined with soft cow suede. Our unlined holsters have been resurfaced and slicked to provide a smoother surface than traditional rawhide leather. Upgrading to suede is not required, but the suede lining is technically softer. All of our leather holsters are made from vegetable tanned leather, so there are no chromium chemicals that would remove the finish from your firearm.

We custom dye all of our leather, so we can choose any color. Our craftsmen will call you to confirm the colors and we will provide you with color options during our phone call.

Can you make a holster for a laser/light/red dot sight?

Yes. We will be able to make a holster for your firearm that has a laser/light/red dot sight.

My firearm/laser/light is not on your list, will you be able to make a holster for it?

If you have a very rare/unique laser/light, we will still be able to make a holster if you send it to us. If it turns out that we cannot make a holster for your firearm, we will promptly provide you with a full refund.

Can I order a matching belt, mag holder, gun grip or shoulder holster?

Yes. We will be able to make a matching belt, mag holder (single or double), gun grip, or shoulder holster. The price will depend on the type of leather and other customizations. After you place your order, our craftsmen will call to confirm the details and will ask you if you would like to add anything else to your order.

Do I need to send you my firearm to make the custom holster?

No. We use replica gun molds to make our holsters.

Does my custom holster come with the 100-Year Warranty?

Yes, your custom holster will be covered by our 100-Year Warranty.

What does the 100-Year Warranty cover?

Our warranty covers any issues that arise from workmanship. Workanship includes: Thread coming undone, leather ripping, ETC.

What doesn't the 100-Year Warranty cover?

Our warranty applies to products used responsibly, and damage caused by misuse will not be covered, for example: your dog chews up the holster, if you fall off an ATV and the holster rips apart, If your holster falls into murky saltwater while you are wrestling gators, which causes it to shrink to change colors, we will attempt to repair it but we will not make an entirely new holster for you. Exposure to chemicals like chlorine, detergent, and conditioners may result in a breakdown of material, which will not be covered by our warranty.

What is the lead time for a custom holster? How long after placing an order will it take until I receive it?

Our current lead time for custom holsters is about 8-10 weeks, depending on how complex the holster is.

What is the best type of holster for me?

Our craftsmen will speak with you about how you plan on carrying your firearm and we will help you determine what type of holster is best for you.

Can I choose the angle (cant) of the belt slots?

Can I remove my thumb break or add a thumb break later?

No. After the holster is made, it cannot be modified to remove or add the thumb break.

If I do not choose to line my holster with suede, will the holster scratch the finish off of my firearm?

No. Our holsters are made from vegetable tan cowhide leather that has been resurfaced and slicked to be smooth. The suede lining is softer, but our unlined holsters will still protect the firearm's finish.

What happens if the holster does not fit?

When a holster does not initially fit, it is almost always because it has not been broken in yet. Our holsters are made from genuine leather, and require a break-in period, just like a new baseball mitt.

If the holster does not fit the firearm after being broken in and stretched, we will remake the holster at no additional cost.

What is your return policy?

Our craftsmen do their best to build each holster to your specific requests. We do not carry an inventory of custom holsters, therefore we will not be able to accept a custom holster as a return. However, we will work with you to resolve the situation on a case-by-case basis.

How will you ship my order?

We offer complimentary USPS shipping, but you can also pay for for UPS delivery as well.

Yes. You will receive an email or text message with the tracking number when your order ships.

Holster for STI Staccato P

The holster is really beautiful, I tried to use it recently on the range and discovered that it is very difficult to get my gun out of the holster, like almost impossible. In saying that, I have never owned a leather holster and may not be using it correctly. I was wearing it OWB. I need to figure out if I am wearing it correctly. I am also wondering if I need to condition it with leather conditioner. I will figure out how to effectively wear it. It is really beautiful. I will wear it with pride. My STI Staccato P fits in it perfectly.

Hello Terry, thank you for taking our phone call. As we spoke about over the phone, here is a link for the break in instructions. Each holster is made extra snug so that you will be able to break the holster overnight in to reach your desired retention level. - https://www.thesoutherntrapper.com/pages/how-to-break-in-a-leather-holster
