Holster Maker Spreadsheet
Posted 21 March 2012 - 04:43 PM
This is our time! I can feel it.
Some time ago I started thinking I wanted a very functional, comfortable and durable holster to carry when they (the legislature) finally get their heads out of their arm pits. A friend recommended getting a Milt Sparks VM2. The $115 isn't a problem for me but Milt died in 1995 and the company has continued in his name. Their products are first class. But they open the website for orders for a short period and if you miss that window, you will wait 6 to 8 months to place an order.
I decided to use my computer skills to find what I wanted. So I thought, I can't be the first person to think of this and set out to find a compiled list. What I found were several lists that overlapped many times. I decided to cull through them and delete the duplicates, add the ones I had found on my own along with some unique products. I put it all into a spreadsheet and included hyper links to jump to the site quickly. I also added photos of the flagship products so a user could hover over the link and see a quick image of their work. Unfortunately, Google docs does not import the images, only the links.
I'd like to thank Mauserme for his assistance guiding me through the process of creating the Google spreadsheet. I probably could have done it after a while but you sure made it painless and helped me avoid the struggle of trial and error. Thank you sir for your kindness.
It took me several months to complete the list. Please scroll through the makers, visit the ones that are of interest and if there is some value to the information consider it a small contribution to the cause. Listed are 258 sites that cover mostly leather holsters to CC clothing (pants) to women's handbags to bed holsters to car holsters even some pistol sling rigs. It is NOT an extensive or complete list by any stretch of the imagination. It is however a fairly good start to some of the better leather holster makers in the US and some unique CC products you may not be aware of.

I predicted that Chicago/Cook county will be sold out in order to get "shall issue".
Based on the restrictions on carry in Chicago/Cook County, I was right.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. - C.S. Lewis

Anyone making custom holsters in the Quad Cities area (IA/IL)? I've got a few pistols to which I've had rails added to the dustcovers.
I got your PM and I think I can help you out.
