Handgun Holsters

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)
