Good guns, especially the treasured ones, deserve good quality custom holsters. Some deserve something that’s handmade and one-of-a-kind.

Thankfully there are many skilled artisans capable of building bespoke holsters of all kinds — appendix carry holsters (AIWB), concealed carry holsters (CCW), IWB and OWB (Inside the Waist Band and Outside the Waistband), even gorgeous Western holsters for sixgun loves and CAS/SASS shooters. Here are 3 such craftsmen.
