We’ve received emails requesting recommendations on concealed carry holsters over the last couple of years. There are many good choices available including IWB holsters from High Noon and Crossbreed.
I use a Crossbreed Supertuck for my primary concealed carry pistol, a Glock Model 36, slimline .45 ACP. This is my favorite holster because it’s the most comfortable and concealable. The Supertuck (horsehide) costs about $100 (with shipping) and takes 4-6 weeks to receive.
Recently I decided to upgrade to horse hide Supertuck style holsters for all my concealed carry pistols. I found the best deal on quality IWB holsters at Butscher’s Leather & Fabrication
Jack London, owner/tradesman of Butscher’s is a north Texas entrepreneur. Jack shares my belief that everyone should give serious consideration to obtaining a CHL. Jack makes holsters that are comfortable for carrying Concealed Carry Weapons all the time.
He makes holsters that conceal your handgun, are comfortable, and won’t break the bank. Jack hand makes each holster individually to ensure they perfectly fit each gun.
Butscher’s Leather and Fabrication makes custom OWB, pocket holsters and other leather gear, including belts. After emailing Jack to inquire about his products, I ordered a horsehide IWB for Mrs. Wolf to carry her new Ruger SR40c.
The Holster was $45 + $3.00 shipping, half the price of a Crossbreed horsehide IWB Supertuck. I must admit I was concerned that a low priced Butscher holster may not measure up to the more expensive Crossbreed Supertuck.
Any concerns I had were erased as soon as I received the Holster, less than 24 hours after I ordering it. The excellent quality and craftsmanship of the holster was obvious as soon as I opened the package.
Crossbreed makes as good an IWB holster as I have seen. My IWB Butscher’s hosrsehide holster meets or exceeds the quality standards of my Crossbreed. I’ve given this holster a work out for two days. It’s been 75 degrees in the metroplex and I’ve been carrying a Ruger SR40c in the new holster both indoors and outdoors while working in the yard, exercising, shopping etc. Mrs. Wolf wants her pistol back! She says the Butscher is the most comfortable and secure holster that she has worn.
This Butscher’s IWB is the most comfortable and well constructed holster that I’ve ever worn for concealed carry. I’ve been wearing the holster without an underneath T-shirt because it’s been unseasonably warm . I like a holster that can be comfortably worn in warm weather with just a t-shirt over it. Natural horsehide is the best choice for concealed carry holster in warm or hot weather.
Natural horsehide does not have dyes to irritate the skin or stain your clothes. Horsehide is a tighter grained leather and is stronger than cowhide. It’s thinner and more concealable than cowhide. Horsehide absorbs less sweat than cowhide, making it the best choice for warm weather wear.
I’m ordering three more horsehide IWB holsters today. Check out all of Butscher’s Leather products here http://www.butschersleather.com/products/ordering or at http://www.facebook.com/butschersleather/
My Butscher belt arrived today. It is a quality casual belt. I personally won’t wear it for concealed carry of any of my guns except my Sig Sauer P238 (.380). The leather is not thick enough for my everyday concealed carry belt. But it’s also half the price of most heavy duty concealed carry belts.
A thick leather belt is essential for concealed carry of most handguns.
