QUALITY HOLSTERS FOR SPECIAL GUNS
The Ruger SR1911 in 10mm was a special gun I was anxious to show to my envious friends. But the beautiful holsters I used to carry the gun during my test garnered just as much attention. I had two holsters from Savoy Leather—an open-topped belt holster and an inside-the-waistband holster—both molded specifically for the 1911. The company, based in Weleetka, Okla., makes all of its leather holsters here in the U.S. all from American materials, including the heavy leather, thread, dye and oil. They are all made to the custom specifications of its customers. The company also makes leather belts and rifle slings. The belt holster I tried had about a 15-degree forward cant and featured the stamped image of an owl, wonderfully depicted in full color (by hand). This rig had an MSRP of $189.99. The IWB rig had a coiled snake and the slogan “Don’t Tread On Me Since 1776.” It sold for $119.99. Each carried the pistol well, and the only problem I saw for a person who carries concealed is that there will be the desire to lift the cover garment to show everyone the fancy holster. All of the holsters from Savoy Leather are custom ordered. First you choose the art design, then the type of holster, the gun model and whether it will be for right- or left-hand carry. These leather holsters are handmade and might take eight to 12 weeks for delivery. When you have a special gun, you really should carry it in a special holster. These holsters from Savoy Leather are first rate.
