Another member here asked me about a remake of another western style holster and I can't for the life of me remember what it was... Crap.

Back in the 80s and 90s, you will never convince me of blued steel and leathers. It was all about parkerized and plastic and nylon.
True enough. Although in those years I was still full time 1911. I did and still do carry a custom ruger single action from time to time. I was a western saddle maker so my Leanings are earned but I still can't bring myself to make a kydex knife sheath or a holster. There's just something about it to me that doesn't have any soul to it.

I must be the odd one out. I'm 34 and I've always loved western style holsters.

But I also feel like living on the East Coast in a fairly large city I'd look a little on the dopey side carrying the dream rig (6 shot .45 long colt in a floral carved leather rig.) Or stick out like a sore thumb - possibly both. Besides, I feel like you have to earn those stripes. Ranch hand, farmer, or at least live somewhere rural and be capable of riding a horse.

I can't wait to get out of this concrete Hell they've labeled a 'city.'

western styled doesn't have to mean a floral carved gunslinger rig. It just needs the flair. My favorite "style" has been and always will be the Texas ranger rigs. Those guys carried 1911's for decades and still do! Their gun rigs are renowned for their craftsmanship and western flair. All while being worn on duty. You just have to love it.

Good work! Here is my take on a simplified Threepersons holster, but with covered trigger guard.
