Hello all S&W fans,
I started making holsters for my carry guns a 6946 and 66-1 2.5" because I could never find a holster that would work for me. You see I'm like a lot of us on the burly side and all off the shelf holsters don't have side protection. My tag line is "Holsters Made for Real People." So, one of my Minnesota based forums had a build your own holster training and I was hooked. Heck a bunch of members have some of my first holsters. Thank you members for your support over the years!
Here is one of my first prototypes for my 66-1 2.5". I still use this holster today to carry my 66. Notice the SGH and not the full logo.
Here is a diamond back rattle snake exotic I made for my 3.5" Officer 1911. Notice my dye jobs are much better now. No the model is not me and thanks to Oleg Volk for the pic.
I went from a couple basic holsters designs The Slide and Quick Clip to over 17 different holsters including exotics and 11 different belts and accessories.
I have even branched out to my own blog on holsters, accessories, how to carry, help for new carry people (in MN we don't have to conceal) and other items that you might be interested in so take a look. Side Guard Holsters Blog – Holsters for Real People
I hit up Lee about a year ago and suggested (I'm sure he was thinking about it before) that "I would love to be a forum sponsor." Now I have my chance to support the forum and my business and became a forum sponsor. I look forward to being one for a very long time. Thank you, Lee!
Let me know if you have any questions and check back often for more updates. Thank you, Erik
