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 […]
The holsters you made for me are wonderful. Your “Cuda” for my 1911 Commander with the Inside/Out straps has eclipsed my original Roy Baker pancake holster… it fits better, hides better, and holds the gun superbly. Workmanship is impeccable. What more can I say or want in a holster? Very well done – Thank You.
The holster you made (which is another beautiful piece by the way) for my 1917 N-Frame revolver is a bit tight on the draw. What is the best way to widen it up a little on the top (it’s narrow there and the cylinder catches coming out and going in)? (The answer is to slightly twist your wrist as you holster the gun. This pries the mouth of the holster open just enough to let the cylinder past the mouth of the holster. Rob)
I really like the way the gun sits in there – down and deep.
My wife and I now have 3 of your holsters and highly recommend them to anyone that asks who is looking for high quality, excellent service, and a good custom fit. Keep up the outstanding work.
