This is hand-stamped one little bitty basket stamp at a time, and finished off with a Barry King flower border. It’s a right-hand, high-ride with a full combat grip. Your middle finger won’t rub on anything. Hand-dyed Black Cherry, with hand-dyed black waxed, burnished and polished edges and slots. The slots are designed to fit a dual-layer, 1/4″ thick heavy gunbelt. The backside is left natural, so there’s no chance of any dye rub-off or transfer. You can sweat in this thing and not look like you’re bleeding. It’s made from premium, American-tanned Hermann Oak leather, and machine stitched with heavy black nylon cord. 15-degree muzzle-rear rake, and a molded sight channel. Only one of these, and she’s in-stock and ready to hit the road via USPS Priority Mail. You can have it in your hands within a week or so.
Kimber Pro Raptor II and Wilson Combat mag not included.
I finished this one (and 9 other assorted models) on Friday. Shot a few pics–it’s for a 4″ or 4.25″ Commander-length 1911, but I’m partial to an exposed muzzle, so I shot this one with a 5-inch, Kimber Raptor.

The credit for this idea goes to a long-time customer. I happen to love it–thanks, Mike!
This is one of our 1-1/2″ wide, dual-layer (lined) leather gunbelts. It’s a cool color we call “Saltillo” for the deep red highlights. This one is hand stamped with the Barry King star basket stamp, one tiny little star at a time. The border is also a Barry King stamp. Stitching is heavy white nylon. The hand-stamped leather keeper is hand finished, and hand molded to fit this belt. It’s also hand sewn with linen thread in order to avoid a metal staple, which would corrode over time and make a mess of the works. The edges are beveled by hand, painstakingly dyed by hand, then waxed and burnished to a fine polish. There are seven (7) adjustment holes spaced 3/4″ apart. It’s topped off with a heavy, polished solid brass Weaver buckle, and two floral brass Chicago screws.

Slow but sure–finally starting to add a few belts and gun belts to the shop. So far, this one. But, that’s progress, right?
We’ve also whittled a week off the lead-time. We’ve gone from 5 to 6 weeks all the way down to 4 to 5 weeks.
Check out the dual-layer, Star Basket gun belt in Natural Hermann Oak. It’s available in Natural or Black Cherry. Stitching colors are black or white, your choice. Buckles are heavy, polished Brass (gold), or heavy polished Chrome Brass (silver).
A first for me, and I was a little apprehensive up until I got it assembled. Now I want one. Thanks Jeff & Crystal for letting me make something new!
This one is solid Black Cherry with heavy black nylon stitching. It’s hand-made from two layers of premium American-tanned Hermann Oak leather cut from the side, bonded and stitched, babied and nurtured through some 30-steps before it’s completed. The edges are hand-beveled, then hand-dyed (an inch at a time!), waxed, and burnished. The heavy solid polished brass Weaver buckle is attached with two floral engraved brass Chicago screws. The belt keeper is hand-molded, and hand-sewn. Factory belts have a staple or two on the keeper that corrode in short order. The lining on this belt is left natural, and the combined thickness of the two layers is right about 1/4″. Width on this one is 1-1/2″.
My plain gunbelts are $150.00 plus $12.95 for US Postal Service Priority Mail shipping and insurance with tracking/delivery confirmation. 6% Florida Sales Tax if it’s shipping to a Florida address. Payment is by PayPal. To order, contact me by e-mail to BruceGibson@aol.com, or through the contact form below, and I’ll send you an invoice. Delivery time (from order to ship date) is currently running about 4-weeks.
Thank you for reading. If I forgot something, or if you have questions, don’t hesitate to send me an e-mail (or use the contact form below).
If you were sitting on the fence, I apologize. If you ordered, I appreciate it. My backlog/wait-list has reached the limit that I’ve set for myself. Any longer and I lose sleep, throw up blood, and start trying to work 24-hours a day. Naw, it’s not really that bad.
I like to be booked far enough out to circumvent poverty, but not so slammed that I can’t work on other projects. Some would call me a lightweight. Hell, my friends call me worse.
I’m blessed to be busy. Thank you for all the orders.
