Gibson Star Basket for 4 or 4.25″ Commander 1911. ***SOLD!***.

Gibson Gunleather and Bruce Gibson Design hand-stamped Star Basket, right-hand, high-ride belt slide pancake holster for the Commander length 1911 with 4, or 4.25-inch barrels.

The Star Basket pattern and border is not embossed–it is laid out and hand-stamped one tiny star at a time.  This process takes time, and hand-crafted attention to detail.

The sight track is molded in to accommodate the larger sights on modern pistols, and the stitching is flared to eliminate “sticking” or hanging up on the draw.

Retention is excellent.  Suitable for open or concealed carry.

Full trigger guard coverage, and cutaway for a comfortable, full-firing grip while holstered.

This holster is designed to fit dual-layer gun belts 1.5″ wide, and 1/4″ thick. This is a high-ride, open carry or concealed holster with a 15-degree muzzle-rear rake or cant.

The Natural oil finish will darken somewhat over time with exposure to sunlight.  A lot of folks describe this as “patina,” and it’s a really cool natural occurrence with veg-tan leather.

All we use is Premium American Hermann Oak vegetable tanned leather.  All proudly made in the USA.  Hermann Oak has been in the leather business in St. Louis, Missouri since 1881.  There is none better.

Heavy wheat colored nylon machine stitching.

Hand-fitted and hand-detailed. Holster edges are hand-beveled, waxed, finished, and burnished.

This holster is in-stock and ships via US Postal Service Priority Mail with delivery confirmation.

Satisfaction is guaranteed.

Replica gun, mags and other goodies are not included.

Questions are always welcome! And again, satisfaction is guaranteed.

Thank you for looking!

$125.00 with Free Priority Mail shipping with Delivery Confirmation and tracking.

Ten year anniversary of the iPhone. Yee…haw.

I stumbled across this on my facebook “news” feed this morning.  It’s been ten years–it seems longer.  I’m saddened and amazed by the effect it’s had on this generation in such a short period of time.

I’m not a fan of cellphones, whether the “i” version, or generic “smart” versions.  In fact, I’m not a fan of phones at all.  I don’t think they’ve done us any favors.

I do have my flip-phone should I find myself broken down on the side of the road.  In that case, I’d call it useful.

Tourists dropping in for a visit. And, not much to write about.

Nice, calm weekend here on the Redneck Riviera.  Tourists can be annoying, irritating, and many times just plain dangerous.

Typically, they ride around in cars and trucks, barefeet propped up on the dash, camera-phone gripped in one or both hands, lost to the real world.  There’s a comfort in knowing what to look for, and avoid.

Well, yesterday a couple of them tried a new approach.  They fell semi-controlled right outta the sky.

Never a dull moment.  The story is here  CONTROLLED CRASH  on the WJHG website.

I needed some content.  Got it.  I’ll mark this one done.

Florals on leather. Birth of a cuff. Little canvas.

Happy Tuesday!

A LOT happening around here.  All good, but for now, all “behind the scenes.”

We’re still working on (fighting with) the shopping cart.  So, thanks again for your patience–if you come across something you want, holler at me.

Gibson Leather Cuff. Thin Blue Line. **SOLD!** …More on the way!

***We have more of these coming soon.  I had no idea this would be as popular as it is.  If you want one, shoot me an email to BruceGibson@aol.com and I’ll put you on the list.***

Something a little different.  The “Thin Blue Line” leather wrist cuff, or bracelet.

I had seen a few of these around, and chewed on the idea of making one for several weeks.  This is what I came up with.

This one is just over 2-inches wide.  Actual width is 2-3/16″.

This one will fit a wrist size of 6-1/2″ to 7-1/4″.  It will be a little loose on a 6-1/2″ wrist, and a little snug on a 7-1/4″ wrist.

Closure is two heavy snaps.

Made with soft, premium chap leather.  It’s very comfortable.

This is the only one I have.  If you like it, and you want it, just click the Buy Now button below.  $56.95 with free USPS Priority Mail Shipping.

***SOLD***
