We all enjoy a good, “do it yourself” success story, and when it involves classic gun leather, that makes it even sweeter for us RevolverGuys. Trust me–if you love leather holsters, this one is gonna knock your socks off! Continue reading “DIY Leather Holster Restoration”
In a previous installments of the “Fighting Leather” series, we looked at some landmark police duty holster designs, such as the Jordan Border Patrol style, the clamshell, and the various front break designs from makers like Berns-Martin, Hoyt, Bianchi, Safety Speed, Rogers and Safariland. Today, let’s look at another popular option for 20th Century police–the cross draw. Continue reading “Fighting Leather: The Cross Draw”
When gunleather designer and maker–and ace “Holstorian”–Red Nichols shared these images with RevolverGuy for our review of his magnificent book, we couldn’t use all of them in our story. They were too neat to scrap though, so we thought you’d enjoy seeing them in a standalone feature. Continue reading “Photo Essay: Lawmen, Actors, and Gunleather”
This is a book review that is long overdue at RevolverGuy. Continue reading “Book Review: Red Nichols and John Witty’s Holstory”
We get a lot of holsters to review here at RevolverGuy, and not all of them show up in a post when it’s all said and done.

As much as I like it, though, carrying appendix isn’t always possible. Appendix can get quite uncomfortable if you have to hold a certain position for long periods of time, and some types of dress and activity don’t support the method.

I didn’t want to like this holster.
It wasn’t a question of workmanship or materials. It was obvious from the start that this holster was made of good stuff and had been assembled with care and attention to detail. This was not one of those holsters (and there are many out there) that missed its calling as a chew toy for a large dog. Continue reading “The Aker Model 160A IWB Holster”
