Cool holsters

Cool holsters DEFAULT

The holster market is burgeoning, and folks have found Kydex easier to manufacture than leather. It also has some advantages, such as its imperviousness to moisture. Let’s look at some new scabbards, two of modern “plastic” and one of old-school critter-hide.

A reader wrote recently to ask if we had any advice on getting comfortable with inside the waistband (IWB) carry. The answer is, we need bigger waistbands. We bought the pants to fit us, and now it has to fit us, a pistol, and the thickness of the holster material around said pistol. As a rule of thumb, that generally means about 2 inches more waistband. That is, if you normally wear a size 36 at the waist, and you want to go with IWB carry, the best fit is likely to be a size 38 waistband.


This G43 9mm rides comfortably and securely in the Yeti-Tac Yeti07.

Yeti-Tac IWB

While testing the then-new GLOCK 43 for another magazine, one of the holsters I used was Yeti-Tac Yeti07, the first IWB designed by Yeti-Tac’s Bill Peters. One feature I liked is it comes without a sweat guard, allowing for a full drawing grasp. There were no sharp edges to bark the fingers in a fast grab for the 9mm, and it was perfectly comfortable when it disappeared beneath an un-tucked polo shirt, which concealed the loaded 43 perfectly. It comes with adjustable tension screws, but the tension was already perfectly adjusted when it came out of the package—secure, but allowing for a very clean and swift draw. Soft belt loops with 1-way dot snaps kept the holster solidly in place. There’s some adjustment range on the belt loops too, which allowed the forward tilt you see in the photos, which in turn allowed a perfectly personalized “3:30 behind the right hip” placement.

The ultra-slim G43, particularly in this compact holster with its thin, rigid Kydex skin, might even be comfortable with only an extra inch of waistband size.

Delivery speed was so fast as to be positively extraordinary. I was very happy with this holster in every way, and it’s become my favorite for that little slim-line G43. It’s a steal at a retail price of $50.


The HK P30SK (tested in this issue) proved excellent for CCW
in the Green Force Tactical Custom IWB

Green Force Holsters IWB

When I tested the new Heckler and Koch P30SK 9mm (see feature in this issue), I decided to use it as my teaching gun in a MAG-40 course at Thunderbird Tactical in Wichita, Kansas in the summer of 2015. Knowing it would be hot, I wanted something that would easily hide the pistol under an un-tucked polo, and reached out to my friends at Green Force Tactical LLC in North Florida, who quickly got me one of their Custom IWBs.

The Green Force Tactical guys actively seek out input from seasoned pistol packers and competitive pistol shooters, and they listen. They make a point of building the holsters the way the individual customer wants them. One of their consultants is John Strayer, owner of the ProArms Gun Shop in Live Oak, Fla., and one of IDPA’s few Five-Gun Masters, who has lost count of how many state and regional championships he has won.

Chris Green and Chad Mason at Green Force quickly provided one of their Custom IWB holsters. Once again, I was happy to see it come without a sweat guard, facilitating positive grasp at first draw, and therefore swift presentation. Comfort factor was high. A forward tilt carry just behind the hip allowed perfect concealment under just the shirt. Re-holstering was clean and positive.

These folks do good work, and they’re eager to work with new designs. If you’ve had something in mind but aren’t on the handy side yourself, give ’em a call. The Custom IWB is not overpriced for its quality at $69.99.


The Flashbang “Sophia” holster is a firm, comfortable leather holster
offering silent presentation and reholstering with the Glock 43

Flashbang Sophia

One advantage of leather over Kydex holsters is they allow a silent, surreptitious draw without a telltale scraping sound as the gun emerges. If you’ve had to do a “stealth draw,” determined there’s no longer a danger and wish to discreetly re-holster, you can do so in leather without that giveaway “snick” sound.

An example is the Sophia, from Lisa Looper’s Flashbang Holsters. Though the name is associated with Lisa’s most famous product, the Flashbang Bra Holster, the company offers much more than that. The Sophia, from her women’s holster line, is a semi-Yaqui slide originally made for the Springfield XD-S, which turned out to be a great fit for the G43. It has turned out to be my girlfriend’s choice for daily carry with the 43. She finds it comfortable and exquisitely concealable. We’ve both shot qualifications with the G43 out of the Sophia and found it fast and sure. (Yes, I’ve worn my girlfriend’s holster. Just call me Caitlyn, and get over it. At least it wasn’t the bra holster.)

The leather Lisa uses is soft enough the edges of the holster never dig at the body, but firm enough the holster mouth stays open without needing metal reinforcement. This allows, smooth, positive 1-handed holstering by feel, which can be important when you’ve had to draw in public, you know police are responding, and you realize you are “person with a gun, there now.” At $49.95 plus postage, this is a good holster and a good value.

1791 Gunleather is proud to offer a full inventory of open top holsters as well as models with thumb break features. An open top gun holster holds your weapon in place securely for ease of access and quick draw. Open top holsters are particularly common in law enforcement, although some officers prefer an added safety measure to prevent perps from attempting to remove weapons. Our models with thumb-break snaps are perfect for anyone who is worried about another getting their hands on your gun. It’s all a matter of personal preference and type of use.

Our open top gun holsters are customized to fit a number of different carries, including 1911s, Beretta, Browning, Colt, FN, FNX, H&K, Kimber, Ruger, Sig Sauer, Smith & Wesson, Springfield, and others. We have specific models designed to hold Glock 42s and Glock 43s with the same glove-like fit characteristic of all our products.

Three or four-way positioning allows for a quick reaction, whether you prefer to pull vertical, horizontal, cross-body, or cross-body inside the waistband with a conceal carry clip. We offer right-handed, left-handed, and ambidextrous designs. The belt-slide feature found in some models prevents the firearm from pressing against the seatbelt buckle when entering and exiting vehicles.


Revolver holsters can be a little bit tricky to purchase as they must match your particular firearm. Each model tends to boast its own virtues and have its own devoted followers. For example, our J-Frame sized revolver OWB belt holsters are a favorite among motorcycle riders carrying snub-nose Smith & Wessons or Ruger LCRs. K-frame sized OWB revolver holsters accommodate barrels from three to six inches in length, from Smith & Wesson M&P Bodyguards to Ruger Vaqueros or S&W 686s.

Search our inventory to find the right fit for your revolver.


The belt holster is the most common type of holster out there. While you can find some old-fashioned chest slings and ankle holsters, the classic belt holster lets you carry your self-defense weapon of choice close at hand, in the most natural position.

When shopping for the right belt holster, you’ll want to consider the cant of the holster – how tilted forward from vertical you want your gun to ride. Can’t ranges from 0 degrees with a straight-drop vertical holster, to 10-20 degrees with an FBI cant holster, to comfortable, easy-draw 30-degree cants.

Buyers should also consider whether a cross-draw capable holster is a feature you desire. Some people feel cross-draws offer the best accessibility from a seated position and comfort. It’s easy to surreptitiously draw your weapon and less likely for someone to grab your firearm from behind. If you’re shopping for a holster to use out hiking and hunting, cross-draw capability may not be of much use to you. Also, in close combat situations, it can be difficult to cross-draw your weapon, particularly without overshooting your target or injuring bystanders.

Depending on the model, some 1791 Gunleather holsters accommodate up to three possible positions, with Vertical, Horizontal, and Cross-Draw cants in ambidextrous style. When you require maximum flexibility, choose a holster that offers both IWB / OWB carry positions for inside or outside the waistband.


The most common choice you’ll face in concealment holsters is whether to carry Inside the Waistband (IWB) or Outside the Waistband (OWB). IWB holsters typically offer more concealment than belt holsters, allowing you to safely tuck your carry inside your pants and beneath your shirt. They may be worn at the one, three, or six o’clock positions. They connect to your belt using J-hooks, clips, and loops, keeping your weapon closer to your body and inaccessible to perpetrators. The downside is that you’ll need to buy your pants a little bit larger to accommodate the width of your gun – and even then, you may find this type of holster uncomfortable for a full day of wear. IWBs are trickier to pull from and to re-holster, so they are better suited for extremely confident carriers who can make up for the loss of speed and efficiency.

OWB holsters are much more visible, thought they are generally not a problem if you live in an area where open carry is legal and accepted. People like OWB holsters, as they have a confident, firm grip on the trigger. OWBs are often worn on the wearer’s dominant side with a slightly forward FBI cant at the three o’clock, all the way up to six o’clock, position. This forward-cant is perfect for concealing the bulge of a weapon grip beneath a shirt or jacket. Cross-draw OWB holsters allow a nine or 11 o’clock position for people who spend most of their time seated.


All 1971 Gunleather holsters are all made from the highest quality of Certified American steerhide leather. Leather is a traditional material for American holsters, with an incredibly long and rich history dating back to the mid-1800s days of Wild West frontiersmen.

Compared to molded thermoplastic holsters, a leather holster will not warp sitting on a car dash on a hot day. It won’t shatter or crack across a point of weakness as it ages. Leather holsters are unrivaled in their comfort. A 1791 Gunleather holster will break-in and stretch slightly, conforming to the contours of your body and becoming more comfortable with wear. The beauty of our handcrafted pieces of leather cannot be overstated. They are a statement piece you’ll cherish and want to pass down for generations.


Part of being a responsible exerciser of Second Amendment rights is properly securing your firearm. Every citizen deserves to proudly carry in comfort all day long. Making the right choice in gun holster will assure you can have it both ways. As a small company, we take great pride in providing valued customers with friendly, personalized service. Contact us to discuss your preferences and find the gun holster that best suits your uses. If, for any reason, the holster isn’t how you imagined, you can return the holster at no additional charge for an exchange or full refund.
