Single Loop Half Skirt A popular style from the gold rush
era, can be worn strong side or cross draw. Due to the wide skirt
this allows you to carry a Colt very comfortably.
Mexican Loop Pattern Holster This holster is copied after several
in "Packing Iron". A slight swell in the body profile
as well as the tie down connecting the holster body and the skirt
keep it from moving when you slap leather. Made from horsehide
it can be dyed to suit your taste. Straight line beading is available
at extra cost if you prefer. Reference page 118 "Packing
Iron". A horsehide holster properly dyed gives the look
of long trail use, so if you don't want to look like you just
came from the general store, this is the holster for you!
Circa 1880 Single Loop Skirted Holster Taken from "Packing Iron",
a copy of a Heiser Saddlery single loop holster. Heiser sold
theirs for $1.80, mine is slightly more. Made from horsehide,
dyed and finished to suit you.
