***SOLD!*** Gibson Black Cherry Star Basket for 4″ or 4.25″ Commander 1911. Shown with a 5″ Kimber Raptor.

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.

This is hand-stamped one little bitty star 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 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 her in your hands within a week–and she’s even better lookin’ in person.

$159.00, shipped.

***SOLD!  This one’s Texas-bound!***

Sam Andrews of Andrews Custom Leather makes a holster with Hank Strange.

It’s a little long, but this is an excellent video done by Hank Strange in Sam Andrews shop down in Alachua, Florida.  This one takes you step-by-step through Sam’s process of making a belt slide, or “pancake” holster for a Glock 19.  Sam recently moved his shop from Alachua to St. Augustine, Florida.

Sam’s process is a little different than mine, but similar in many ways.  He’s been at it for some 40-years, and he stays booked with an extended backlog.  As a Maker, I love watching other Maker’s processes.  I always learn something, and this video is no exception.  One thing I learned from this one is that Sam Andrews seems to be a heck of a nice guy.

Awesome video from Hank Strange on a process I’m always fascinated by.  Check out Andrews Custom Leather here Andrews Custom Leather and Hank’s YouTube Channel here Hank Strange YouTube.

A little belt slide for the SIG P238, Kimber Micro or Colt Mustang.

Busy, rainy week around here so far.  I think it’s been a week since I’ve seen enough sun to bother mentioning.  It does make me appreciate it when it does show up.  Worked on a couple of prototypes for the Sig P238, and just finished the finalized design.  This is the first fully-operational belt slide pancake rig I’ve made for that cool little .380.

This is the final prototype, and it’s ready for a home.  Outside the waistband with a 20-degree muzzle-rear rake, or cant.  Slots will fit a 1-1/2″ wide, dual-layer (double thick) gun belt.

Stitching color is Wheat (or Natural).

The Hermann Oak leather for this one is natural.  It is unlined.

We built this one with a sweat shield.  Also known as a slide guard, shirt guard, shirt protector, etc., etc.  That’s where we put the Maker Stamp.

It’s handmade, machine sewn, hand beveled, waxed, burnished and finished.  Also hand-detailed and fitted.

Questions are always welcomed.  Contact me through the website, or send an email to BruceGibson@aol.com .  Regular price on these will be $79.00, shipped.

This one’s a prototype, so it’s not as spotless and pretty as the regular production models will be.

This one is $59.00, shipping included via USPS Priority Mail with tracking/Delivery Confirmation.  This is the only one, so if you want it, use the “Buy Now” button below to grab it and give it a home.  We’ll ship it out in a day or so.  *Little Blue Gun not included.*

Crazy months and no more backlog. Almost.

GIBSON, STAR, BASKET, STAMP, NATURAL, WHEAT, THREAD, 1911, COMMANDER, KIMBER, COLT, SPRINGFIELD
Gibson Star Basket for 1911 with 4″ or 4.25″ barrel. Hand-stamped one tiny little star at a time.

Caught up.  Finally.  Or, 99% there, which is close enough for me.

You’ve all heard me bitch  complain over the years about being slammed, booked, backlogged, etc.  Not anymore.  At least not until enough brain cells die that I forget the agony of being booked weeks in advance, and let the word “yes” slip out in response to an emotional plea.

Nothing will get you caught up faster than saying “no.”

In the meantime, I’m enjoying the creating–the making of things that I’ve had rattling around in my head for what seems like forever.  Things that I haven’t had the luxury of available time to make.  If all goes according to plan, those products will be appearing here on our humble little website.

Speaking of which, we have the holster above.  Smooth, eh?

This is one of our hand-stamped, Star Basket belt slide/OWB holsters for the Commander-length 1911 (4″ or 4.25″ barrel) in natural premium American-tanned Hermann Oak leather with a flower border.  15-degree rake, high-ride, full firing grip with a molded sight track.  The stitching color is called “wheat,” or what I’d describe as a really light tan.  This one’s had a few hours of warm Florida sunshine to give it a head-start on a honey patina.  Edges are hand-beveled, hand-waxed, and hand-burnished.  Retention and concealment are excellent, but I think it really shines when it can be carried openly in the non-snowflake jurisdictions that allow that kind of activity.  I really enjoyed making this one–so much so, that I’ll be making more as we move along.

Backside detail.

Questions and comments are always welcome.  Just send me an email to BruceGibson@aol.com, or use the contact box below.

I only have this one for now.  If you want it, it’s $150.00 via PayPal with free shipping by way of the US Postal Service and Priority Mail with Tracking/Delivery Confirmation.  Just click the “Buy Now” button, and we’ll get it on its way.
