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!

“Thin Blue Line” leather cuff bracelet.

I didn’t have a clue that this item would get the attention it has.  We’ve added it to the Shop, so if you want one, you can click the link below and have a look for information and ordering.

We’ll have a size/sizing chart put together shortly, but in the meantime, just measure around your wrist OVER your wrist bone, and we’ll build it from there.

Here’s the link to the “Thin Blue Line” cuff bracelet:

Black Cherry. First “plain” one I’ve done with no stamping or carving.


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, 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).
