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 […]
Rob, hope things are going well for you all. When wondering about your weather compared to ours in the southeast of the Lower 48, I think of our high temp predicted to be about 80 today, while the only thing that keeps running through my mind this morning about Alaska is an old Johnny Horton hit record of about 1960 or so (“When It’s Springtime in Alaska, It’s Forty Below”)!

When you have time, please let me know the out-the-door amount we need to write a check for to order a sourdough for a J-frame S&W Model 649.
That’s her little carry piece and, after COMFORTABLY wearing Ruger Alaskans around in your Sourdough Pancake!”s for some time now, one of those for the little Smith will probably make the weapon feel like a disappearing act. The secure grip, simplicity of the design (no snaps, straps, screws, etc) as well as the addition of the extra slot offering cross-draw utility should serve well on routine concealed carry. We also were pleasantly surprised at how well your holsters hold the larger Ruger revolvers so close to the body. Concealed carry with a .44 is a delight plus a good chuckle at the same time.
I think the missus’ favorite holster finish is a light shade of tan if such is available. Otherwise, we’ll be happy with whatever the lightest shade is on call.
Looking forward to hearing and thanks again for the outstanding quality and utility of your products.
