Gunleather

On this page is a selection of holsters and other related things which I have made. For the first 8 years of being a leatherworker I didn't make any sort of gunleather, holsters or gun belts however I have always had an interest in them especially Old West cowboy gear.

Being in the UK of course handguns are completely illegal so we don't have the same sort of gun ownership, clubs etc. that some other countries do. If you are in the UK and you would like to make holsters you can look into buying deactivated guns, blank firing guns or airguns none of which require a license.

Please remember—if working with a functional gun of any kind you must observe all necessary firearms handling precautions at all times. If you don't know how to handle a firearm safely you should not have them in your workshop for leatherwork.
