Editor’s Notebook: Ancient Weapons? Simply Rugged’s new holster, the Shootist, has elements of old and new. The design pulls the gun in close to your side. Rob Leahy, proprietor of Simply Rugged Holsters – formerly of Alaska and now of Chino Valley, Ariz., and his media/sales guy Bruce Warren were discussing how good it would […]
Dave Hartman, Marine /LEO Gunsite Instructor: Range commands after a drill: “Slowly, reluctantly, holster your firearm.” BEST advice on holstering a gun I have ever heard. Slamming the gun home is a good way to end up with a couple extra holes in your leg. Slamming the gun home into the holster is the sign […]
The Simply Rugged Cuda is a combination inside-the-waistband (IWB) / outside-the-waistband (OWB) holster. By combination, I mean you can easily convert it from one to the other. Other designs on the market allow you to perform this exorcism by screwing and unscrewing clips or gun pouches or whatever. The Simply Rugged Cuda design has the […]
An unsolicited, unrepentant plug for Simply Rugged Holsters™
I got my holsters from Rob Leahy this week, a pancake and a Border Patrol for my Model 24. The pancake holster is the only OWB holster I have ever tried that will conceal a N-frame under my blue blazer, which is the hardest test I put a holster through. Under my suede jacket, corduroy jacket, nylon windbreaker, or photo vest, no problem, hands-down winner. And with the sights covered it will not chew holes in the linings any more.
The Border Patrol is also just what I wanted: a sturdy, usable field rig. It is not a barbecue holster, but then if it was, it would be Simply Gorgeous instead of Simply Rugged Holsters™. I didn’t want a barbecue holster, I wanted the one I got. (Not that it is bad looking — I hope I’m not giving the wrong impression.)
Thanks Rob, you done good!
