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, Gibson Gunleather, Bruce Gibson, Bruce Gibson Design, Hermann Oak, Natural, hand, carved, floral, holster, OWB, conceal, concealed, belt, slide, premium, Made in USA
Full-floral, hand-carved, natural for 4″, 4.25″ or 5″ 1911. The toe is open so a 5″ will expose about 3/4″ of muzzle.  This one is unlined.

I don’t expect any awards for photography on this one, but I just finished it, it was sitting on the bench, and I thought, “Why not?”  So…here she is.

Right-hand, high-ride, 15-degree rake, belt slots set to fit a 1-1/2″ dual-layer (1/4″ thick) gun belt.  This one is made from premium American-tanned Hermann Oak leather.  This one does not have a liner.  Heavy white polyester machine stitching.

This will fit a 4″, 4.25″ Commander, or 5″ full-size 1911 with 3/4″ or so of muzzle exposure.  It’s pictured here with a 4″ Kimber Pro Raptor II.  Hand-carved, hand-stamped.  Edges are hand-beveled, hand-dyed, hand-waxed, and hand-burnished.  Slots, too.  There’s a hell of a lot of time and love in this one.

The backside is hand-moulded and detailed for retention.  This baby conceals beautifully–imagine that!  I don’t think you’ll want to hide it, but if you have to, it’s easy!

Made in the good ol’ USA.

$150.00, shipped via the US Postal Service and Priority Mail with Tracking/Delivery Confirmation to all 50 of these United States (yes, that includes Alaska & Hawaii).

Any questions, shoot me an email to BruceGibson@aol.com  SATISFACTION GUARANTEED.

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).

Rockmount. Jack Weil. And another Glock holster seeking a home. (G3)

You’re supposed to keep yourself limited in topic–keep it simple.  Don’t be confusing.  “Those are the rules.”  Well, I think most folks are smarter than that.

We’ve got another in-stock holster for sale, and I was thinking about the late founder of Denver, Colorado-based Rockmount Ranch Wear, Jack Weil.  Jack passed away back in 2008 at the age of 107.  We never met, but I think Jack was a cool ol’ dude.

In this interview he talks about Denver “way back when.”  He also touches on New Englanders…”You could always tell a New Englander…you just couldn’t tell ’em a goddamn thing.”  I recall an interview where a reporter asked him about his legacy.  The reporter asked, “How would you like to be remembered?”  Jack’s response was, “I don’t give a damn.”  They don’t make ’em like that anymore.

Anyway, back to clearing out our in-stock holster collection.  All handmade, with insane attention to detail.

gibson, Glock, holster, leather, 19, 23, 32, OWB, premium, leather
Gibson outside the waistband (OWB), Natural Oil, Hermann Oak Premium American Leather Holster. Handmade in the USA.

As I mentioned yesterday, I’ve been going through all the in-stock holsters I have around here, and I’ll be putting them up as time permits.  This one’s a right-hand, belt-slide or pancake for the Glock 19, 23 or 32.  Belt slots are designed for a 1-1/2″ wide, dual-layer (doubled) gunbelt.  This one rides nice and high, with a 15-degree muzzle-rear rake.  Natural oil, premium American-tanned Hermann Oak leather, and heavy white nylon stitching.  Maker stamped on the face.  As always, the Glock in the photo’s not included.

The holster in the photo above is the one you will receive.  Any questions, feel free to shoot me an e-mail to BruceGibson@aol.com .

In the event of mutual purchasers, the first one gets it.  All others will be immediately refunded.

$100.00 via the PayPal “Buy Now” button below.  Shipping included via USPS Priority Mail to all 50 states.  *If you’re in Florida we have to add $6.00 for the required sales tax contribution to the State.  (Florida buyers I’ll send a PayPal invoice for $6.00 to cover sales tax).

Satisfaction Guaranteed.

Hermann Oak. Since 1881. No, it’s not in China.

cropped-FLORAL-BELT-WITH-BUCKLE-JUNE-1-201511.jpg

This is just a short post of where we get our leather.  It’s from Hermann Oak Leather in St. Louis, Missouri.  Yep…in America, the good ol’ USA.  That’s important to me since my name ultimately winds up on it, and it’s one of the few arenas where we (our government) haven’t allowed the Chinese to screw us.  The saddest part is that we’ve stood by and handed them the keys.  It’s been “consensual” as they say in the legal arena.  Usually in criminal cases.  Hermann Oak’s one of the holdouts.

Hermann Oak has been in the leather business since 1881.  By my math, that makes 2016 their 135th year.  We don’t shop around for our premium oak-tanned belt and holster leather.  It’s all 100% American, all 100% Hermann Oak.  It’s better than the import stuff, and of course, more expensive.  Quality tends to be that way.

Here’s a neat video on a legendary American company.

Gibson Gun Belt Star Basket BK and TLF. 1.5″ wide in Natural oil finish with border.

This is one of the most popular of the many hand carved, and hand stamped belt designs we produce around here.  This one is the Star Basket BK in a 1-1/2″ width.  It’s hand cut from a side of premium, American tanned Hermann Oak leather.  Each star basket is hand-stamped, one at a time, the entire length of the belt.  Each tiny half flower making up the border is hand-stamped.  That includes the hand-sewn leather keeper.  Nothing is ever embossed.  (Embossing is used in mass-produced factory products where the design is rolled or pressed into the leather with a machine).

GIBSON STAR BASKET IN PROGRESS DOMAIN-JAN 30 2016
The stamping process. By hand, one at a time. “Old school,” and time consuming. That’s what makes it so cool.

The buckle is solid, polished brass.  This one has two floral engraved brass Chicago screws attaching the buckle.

All edges are hand-finished, hand-waxed, and hand-burnished for visual appeal and to minimize the effects of exposure to the environment.

All of my belts have seven (7) adjustment holes spaced 3/4″ apart.  This is both visually appealing, and functional.  The heavy nylon stitching is recessed into a stitch groove to minimize exposure and wear.

Every belt is finished with 100% pure Neatsfoot oil.  Unlike an imported factory, or department store belt, these take a minimum of three (3) days to produce.

And, yes.  I baby ’em every step of the way.

STAR BASKET BK-NATURAL TWO-PLY LINED-DOMAIN--JAN 30 2016
Gibson Star Basket BK with border. Two-ply, hand-stamped American-tanned, Hermann Oak leather, natural oil finish, with heavy white nylon stitching and polished brass hardware. Made in USA.

Workin’ on it.

GIBSON GLOCK 19 23 32 NATURAL SAN CARLOS BORDER

As most of you know, I changed domains and web providers several months ago.  A bunch of you have made inquiries about product availability, pricing, accepting orders, etc.

I’m workin’ on it.

I am not accepting any more advance orders. accepting a very limited number of advance orders.  That’s not intended to be coy–it’s simply to minimize my backlog.  I’ve got a few things in-stock that I’ll be adding in the near future.  If you see something you’re interested in, feel free to send me an e-mail to BruceGibson@aol.com.

There’s a bunch to catch up on.  The fun part’s making it…writing about it?  Not so much.

Thank you for your patience.

Star Basket Gun Belt

DSCN1569

This is a star basket gunbelt in the beginning stages.  This one’s going to Montana.

There are about 25-steps from start to finish.  You can destroy one at any step along the way.

I’ve screwed up my share.

If all goes to plan, this one will be black cherry, with black stitching.  It will have a natural Hermann Oak leather liner.
