The Story Behind The "Fat Charley"
During a visit to the Dry Tortugas (Fort Jefferson), Capt Bligh was inspired by the tale of a military prisoner who was sent there in the 1860's to serve his term for deserting the Union. A full moat surrounded the fort, providing protection to the fort walls from heavy seas and enemy landings. It also discouraged prisoners from escaping. One prisoner, named "Fat Charley", wrestled a 10-foot shark into the moat. The shark circled the fort for two months before the prisoners ate it. The "Fat Charley" shark skin holster is named after the legendary "Fat Charley" of Fort Jefferson.

Purchase of the "Fat Charley"
Let me start by saying that from first phone call to delivery of holster, the experince was amazing!!! The people at Souther Trapper were helpful, courteous, and efficient. Updates on the progress of the holster were sent, and it took less than 6 weeks to get the holster. The holster is very high quality, and fit my staccato perfectly, with minimal break in necessary. It is the most comfortable holster I have ever had! The presentation on delivery was impressive as well. In summary, please order a holster from Southern Trapper, you will not be dissapointed!!!!
Holster fit gun perfect didn’t even have break it in
Not very impressed with details or finish.
I have four holsters and mag holders from another maker that are much nicer. Mag holder had the clip attached to the wrong or finished side. I paid much more than the other supplier, but he did not have the new Mako R7 template. Southern Trapper looks mass produced with less quality and value. Expected better and not happy.
Hi Dale, I am sorry to hear that you are unhappy with the holster. Based on the photo that you attached, I personally think the holster looks fantastic, I would be very happy with the holster. As for the mag holder, it was made for IWB carry, so the clip should be on the side with the shark skin. You were very patient while we built the holster and I can assure you it was not mass produced during the 8 weeks that you waited for the holster.
