Gibson Floral Carved Wild Rose Belt Slide OWB Holster in natural for 1911 Commander. **FREE SHIPPING**

Stock Number for this one is #G-MFT.  $159.00 with FREE SHIPPING via USPS Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation.  Includes Alaska and Hawaii.  NO INTERNATIONAL ORDERS ACCEPTED AT THIS TIME.

Gibson Gunleather and Bruce Gibson Design Wild Rose floral carved right-hand belt slide pancake holster for the Commander length 1911 with 4, or 4.25-inch barrels.

The Wild Rose floral pattern is not embossed–it is hand-carved, and hand-stamped one detail at a time.  This process takes many hours.  

The site 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 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” or “natural” colored nylon machine stitching.

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

This holster is in-stock, ready to go, and ships via US Postal Service Priority Mail with delivery confirmation within 2 business days.

Satisfaction is guaranteed.

Questions are always welcome! Shoot me an email to BruceGibson@aol.com .  And again, satisfaction is guaranteed.

Thank you for looking!

Gibson Saltillo Star Basket Leather Gun Belt. Hand stamped and handmade in the good ol’ USA.

GIBSON SALTILLO 1.5" LEATHER GUN BELT GUNBELT HANDMADE HAND STAMPED CARVED HERMANN OAK

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.

If you want one of your very own, please feel free to order below.

If you have questions, shoot me an email to BruceGibson@aol.com, or use the contact form below.

$195.00 plus $12.95 USPS Priority Mail Shipping, Insured with Delivery Confirmation/Tracking.  Total is $207.95  (Florida Orders please contact me for Sales Tax).

“I wish I had his job. He’s living my dream.”

Gibson, leather, floral, carving, practice, pieces, stamping, carving, leatherwork, leathercraft, work, craft
Practice pieces. Carving and stamping flowers, vines and leaves.

An old friend of mine said that to my wife a few years ago.  He was a lawyer, and had been for many years.  He passed away a while back, far too young, and I was just thinking about him, and what he’d said to her about this “job” of mine.

I love what I do.  Most of the time.  I suppose most folks that have chased a dream, do.  I worked in the legal field for many years, but for me, it was like trying to nail Jello to a tree.  Constant stress, and no sense of worthy accomplishment.  Even good outcomes were intangible, and rarely, if ever, good for both sides.  I don’t miss it.

With this gig, it’s different.  It’s not all wonder and awe–it has its moments.  But, even when it’s bad, it’s awful damn good.

Gibson 1911 Holster. I think it has your name on it. (G6)

This one’s gorgeous.  If you hang around here much, you know I’m a huge fan of the belt slide/pancake holster.  This one was designed from the ground up.  Literally, a sketch on a legal pad.

Details

This one is designed for a 4 or 4.25″ Commander-length barrel.  It’s pictured with a 5″ Kimber Raptor with the muzzle exposed.  I like that look–your mileage may vary.

Full firing grip.

High ride.

Outside the waistband (OWB).

15-Degree rake/cant.

Slots are for a 1.5″ wide dual-layer 1/4″ thick gunbelt.

Premium Hermann Oak American-tanned leather.

Very proudly handmade in the USA.

As always, your satisfaction in guaranteed.

This one is $120.00*, shipped via USPS Priority Mail with Insurance and Delivery Confirmation.  (*Florida orders I’ll send you an invoice for an additional $7.20 for sales tax.)

1911. NO SITE TRACK! $75.00 shipped. (G5)

Here’s another from the “in-stock” collection.  This is a post-prototype that has no molded, or sewn-in site track.  It’s pictured with a 5-inch Kimber Raptor 1911.  The design is for a Commander 4.25″ or a 4″ 1911.  I just like the look.

Retention is excellent.  It’s handmade from premium American Hermann Oak leather.  Ride is high, and it has a full-firing grip–you can reach for it, and there’s no grip interference.  This is a sweet holster, it just lacks a site track.

Everything about this one is top-notch quality.  Materials, stitching, fit, molding.  All the normal insane attention to detail is here.  The Kimber has full-size sites.  But, because it doesn’t have a molded/sewn site track built in, we’re letting this one go for $75.00 bucks, shipped.  And, your satisfaction is still guaranteed.  If you get it, and don’t like it–send it back.  You’ll get a 100% refund if you do it within 14-days or so.  That’s how we operate.

The backside is molded, detailed and Maker stamped.

15-degree (FBI) muzzle-rear rake.  Questions?  Holler at me by email to BruceGibson@aol.com

$75.00 shipped to any of the 50 states.  If you’re in Florida, we’ll send you an additional invoice for $4.50 for the sales tax.  Everywhere else, –it’s $75 bucks.  Period.

We ship USPS Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation and Insurance.

Here ya go.  Buy it–safely through PayPal.  You’ll be happy you did.  If not, we’ll make it right.
