As the name indicates, each holster is a simple design, but they are also very rugged and will protect the firearm while you are out in the field or carrying concealed. Holsters are hand molded around each type of firearm to provide a snug fit and hold it in place whether you are riding horse back, on your 4-wheeler, snow machine, fly fishing or hiking on a trail through the woods. For more examples of the retention capabilities look at our customer testimonials page. Our leather is dyed a rich cordovan color and then top coated with a clear coat to further protect the leather.
Customer service is the most important part of our business. We want you to be satisfied with your purchase, if you need adjustments or repairs, we will gladly make them or refund your money upon return of the product.
Thanks for taking a look. E-mail us with any questions you may have.

This is some research /prototype gear I made with my son in mind. I just picked up the Taurus 1911 for him from a friend. Crocodile inlay on the holster croc overlay on the mag pouches. The spines are supple enough to lay down if he chooses. Click to enlarge photos.

I received your Simply Rugged Holsters™ Holster for my Ruger Alaskan, and it is awesome. I had bought and tried several other holsters from large manufacturers, and their holsters allowed the Alaskan to both rock and spread from my body. I actually gave those holsters away free. The first day I got your holster I wore it all day in the house and around town, since then, I wear it very regularly and it is totally comfortable and the Alaskan stays where it is suppose to stay. This is the best holster for the Ruger Alaskan. This holster is master design and leather work for this revolver, I know where to come for the best holsters made.
"Rob makes excellent pancake style holsters. They will be appearing in my articles on the Redhawk 4" and Alaskan .44 magnum and hopefully also in Gun Digest 2008." (It made it!) John Taffin (Guns, American Handgunner magazines, Gun Digest)
“I carried the Mountain Gun in a simple but rugged and very practical holster built by custom holster maker Rob Leahy. It is of a pancake design, and is built of quality hand-boned leather with expert craftsmanship” Jeff Quinn, Gunblast.com
