What is everyone's favorite gun leather and why? I personally use El Paso Saddlery www.epsaddlery.com. I like their quality and they're more or less a custom manufacturing outfit. I use their #77 Tortilla for my Ruger MKII and their #88 Street Combat for my larger carry guns. They make some good looking western stuff, too.

Here's the #77 Tortilla:


And the #88 Street Combat:


Their products are made to order. $50 each for the two shown and they come lined standard. Belt slots to order and right or left-handed at no extra charge. They also offer stampings for an extra $12 to $15 and floral carvings for slightly more. All things considered, their products seem like a bargain.

Kramer Leather and also, Ken Null Holsters.

Why??

Craftmanship, design, quality horsehide construction.

Built for professionals, not targeted to police equipment market like Uncle Mikes', Bianchi, Safariland. Not that there's anything wrong with that...

All of my street holsters are Galco "Concealable"s. I like the idea of the extra strength provided by the laminate construction. I'm thinking about getting a Kramer for my Ruger GP100 since they're local.

Hey Sparky,
I think JD is implying that you mean horseSHELL leather right?

No, Sparky's referring to Horseshoe Leather, the company. www.holsters-for-handguns.com

I prefer Waldon Holsters, myself. www.waldonholsters.com

Bulldawg is correct, I was referring to Andy Arratoonian's company name, Horseshoe Leather. I was not referring to him making holsters out of shell cordovan or actual horseshoes!!!!! He really does make excellent stuff- best boning I've ever seen. Recommend him highly. I like the Milt Sparks boys' IWB holsters better, but Andy's belt slides are second to none. www.horseshoe.co.uk

I am very pleased with my Andrews Leather jackass rig (he calls it the Monarch rig). Excellent craftsmanship, it fits my USP.45 beautifully. www.andrewsleather.com

He also makes something called the firepower rig, shown below--




Pretty cool huh?
