Just thought I would give a 2 1/2 year update. I have a Texas IWB that I wear daily. Even after losing almost 60 pounds, this holster is still the BEST I own. The stitching is still tight and intac... »

About

My name is Luke Adams. I've been involved with firearms all of my life. In 2009 I started making holsters. Firearms have always been a passion for me, and that was because of my family. My wife also helps out in the shop doing some of my finishing and email etc. So we do various parts of the process though I build all of our rigs she is involved in part of the process.

My grandfather, Don, was a peace officer and he passed on many lessons to my father, Dave, who has been involved with firearms his entire life. If you met a gentleman at a gun show with my holsters, chances are that's him.

I began carrying a concealed handgun regularly around 2004 and went down the path many have in trying to find a comfortable way to carry. I've owned countless holsters of all sorts of designs and materials from leather to Kydex and generally found that they didn't solve the problem of a comfortable way to carry daily. I decided rather than spending more money on holsters that I just couldn't seem to get to work that I would build some of my own. My first few holsters were pretty rough around the edges but their focus was on comfort rather than looks. As I made more holsters I found better ways to change my designs and took inspiration from some of the other successful holster makers on the market. I have found that there are quite a few different ways to fold leather, Kydex, or cloth to make a holster but most of the time inspiration came from someone else's ideas. If you read down to the bottom of this page I will put up a list of other holster makers that I have found inspiration in either their designs or the way they make holsters. I've also read countless pages of advice on forums and heard quite a bit of it in person from guys testing out my gear. I've always been a do-it-yourself kind of guy, so I started making some holsters for myself. Soon I was making them for friends and family, and then for other poeple.

Issac Newton's old quote that "A dwarf on a giant's shoulders sees farther of the two"  comes into play here. There are only so many ways a holster maker can fold and sew a piece of leather. Here is a list of great holster makers that I've taken inspiration from over the years. They aren't in any particular order. They all make excellent gear.

I also wanted to thank all the guys out there who helped and are helping me test new designs.
