Belt Construction
The back belts are made from 10 - 12 oz Wicket & Craig vegetable tanned skirting leather. The Oval, Diamond, straight or Round shape of the backs have  a good look  and offer support and stability like a weight lifters belt.  They are 5" to 8 " wide at center back and taper to 2" at the ends, lined with 4-5 OZ chap suede to minimize shifting. The buckles are set back from the ends of the belt so the front end of the buckle rests at the edge of the belt and won't pinch when the buckles are tightened. The buckle is fixed to the belt by a sewn leather billet which also holds the keeper. The billet can be opened by removing a Chicago screw for a changing buckles. Front belts are also made from l0 - 12 oz Wickett & Craig vegetable tanned skirting leather and are unlined. 
Backs of the belts and holsters can be carved with initials or brands or logo's.

Holsters
Holsters are made from 10-12 Oz Wickett & Craig vegetable tanned skirting leather and lined with 4 -5 Oz chap suede  A glued sandwich of  leather ,suede and  shaped rawhide liner is placed between the suede and leather and is then all stitched together. The finished holster is wet molded to the shape of your gun. The rawhide liner  molds to your gun and keeps it in the holster. This combination of leather, suede and rawhide is more expensive to make but allows the gun to stay in the holster until needed without sight locks. Pull's like its in silk but will not bounce out while riding.  No one in the industry makes a holster like I do. 
The sleeve holing the holster to the belt is sewn through all the leather and rawhide layers for strength. Turn them upside down; the guns won't drop out! They slide in and out easily when needed for a quick draw or gun change and easily slides back in the holster and stays there. Dump holsters are standard in our rigs. Gives you a larger target and deeper wide opening at top of holster for a quick secure gun change.

Hardware
Standard supplied hardware are Jeremiah Watt Stainless Roller Buckles for easy tightening of you belt. Two buckles on the belt allows you to adjust the rig to your best position for pulling and changing your guns. Concha's of Stainless, Brass, Sterling & Bronze and Sterling or silver plate are also available. I am always looking for antique and unusual hardware pieces and will change images as they are used or added. Custom made trophy buckles are also available 

Rifle & Shotgun
Rifle & shotgun Holsters & Scabbards are made from 10 - 12 oz vegetable tanned Wickett & Craig skirting leather and lined with 4-5 oz chap suede. Scabbards & universal shotgun/rifle holsters come with two buckled tie on straps to attach to your saddle. Designed to allow an easy smooth  pull without binding. Buckles are Jeremiah Watt Stainless etched ovals.
The new shotgun and rifle holsters are rawhide lined and molded to the shape of your rifle or shotgun. They are designed to hold the gun without bounce and to pull smoothly and not interfere with the horses movement. Rifle & shotgun stock covers are made of 8 oz vegetable tanned skirting leather or softer Elk Tanned Cow, tooled and molded to the stock then laced.

Chaps and chinks are available in many leathers from 2 oz garment to 8 oz oil tan and are custom fitted to your measurements. Waistbands are 8 - 10 oz  Wickett & Craig Skirting  leather in  various shapes and tooling.

Saddle Bags and horn mounted Pommel Bags are also available upon request.
