The "King Snake" is the newest cowhide holster that we released in March of 2021. This dual-carry leather holster is made entirely by hand in the USA for your specific firearm, including firearms that have been modified with lights, lasers and red dot sights. Take this holster on a 30-day test drive with our 30-Day Buy Back Guarantee. You can easily transition from OWB (outside the waistband) to IWB (inside the waistband) using the sturdy metal IWB clips that securely fasten to the belt slots.
The "King Snake" holster is made from the highest grade American cowhide leather (not snake) with care and precision by our Master Leathermen. This holster will fit like a glove and will not scratch the finish on your firearm. This holster comes equipped with a full-sized sweat guard to provide exceptional comfort and prevent rust by eliminating moisture transfer from your body to the firearm.
Our holsters are designed for an easy and reliable draw and reholster. Each holster has excellent retention and your firearm will be securely positioned in the holster. The holster covers the full barrel and trigger guard of your firearm, while the dual wings distribute the weight of your firearm evenly across your belt. Over time, the leather will form to the shape of your body for even greater comfort and ease of use. All holsters come backed by our unbeatable 100-Year Warranty, ready for a lifetime of use and abuse.

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 5-ton 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 and are 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 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's mouth obstructing your access.

All Southern Trapper belt slots are cut for 1.75" belts and lower, and if you need an even bigger slot give us a call at 843-501-2771 and we'll customize the holster for whichever size you need.
