Home Sweet Concealed Carry Holster
Doug Childers of New Braunfels, Texas, runs Bear Creek Holsters, a one-man workshop finely crafting custom holsters that are gaining some attention. In addition to cowhide, he offers holsters made of horsehide, which is denser, smoother and more moisture resistant than cowhide. Color choices are black, brown or natural leather, which has a marbled light brown appearance. Holsters are hand tooled and stitched without rivets. Childers also offers accents and exotic materials such as alligator, shark, elephant, ostrich or stingray. Delivery times can vary based on demand. Check Bear Creek Holsters’ website for current delivery times. (Prices vary, bearcreekholsters.com)

Crossbreed

crossbreed  The SuperTuck Deluxe is a blend of stability and comfort. The backing is offered in horsehide, cowhide or hard-rolled cowhide. One option to consider is the Combat Cut where some of the leather is trimmed from the backing. This allows the shooter to get a better grip and a faster draw. The trade-off is a slight decrease in comfort. ($70, crossbreedholsters.com)

Blackhawk!

blackhawk! The Epoch Level 3 Light Bearing Duty Holster is designed for Glock and Smith & Wesson M&P pistols mounted with an under-barrel pistol light. It will fit with Streamlight’s TLR-1 and TLR-2 and the SureFire X300. Made of a proprietary polymer blend, the holster has the same master grip release principle as the Serpa series of holsters, which involves a thumb-activated release that disengages both the ejection-port lock and the protective pivot guard. ($125, blackhawk.com)

Galco

The smooth side is on the inside for a quick draw and easy holstering. It is made of horsehide with a natural finish. ($130, galcogunleather.com)
