Western Leather Holsters

Western Leather Holsters : the real deal by Chisholm’s Trail

Western leather holsters custom made by Chisholm’s Trail Leather just for you. We do not mass produce these works of art. We make these Western leather holsters one at a time, as you order them. In the Old West, there were a great variety of patterns and all were highly functional for toting a cowboy’s six gun: his protection against threats that abounded nearly everywhere. Chisholm’s Trail has made improvement on the rough originals, especially in the functionality. The Soellner’s have learned trade secret treatments to make the interior and wearing edges of their Western leather holsters that allow you to draw your weapon faster than the cowboys in the old days. Note: for semi autos- If you have an extended magazine or bumper pad at the bottom, it is your responsibility to let us know and you will need to send one of these into us for correct fit.
