I've had a lot of interest in holsters for Cowboy Action Shooting, so I've worked with a few people in the sport to come up with a suitable design. I've seen rigs that are lined, and have metal inner layers with tension screws and other fancy features for over $1000. For those looking for serious competition those are great, but I wanted to come up with a good entry level set up for those just getting into the sport and recreational shooters. These holsters are similar to my Wild West Holsters, but with a few added features:
The couture of the holster leaves a little more room for the gun, and so has less friction for a faster draw. The belt loop has a wider width at the belt for more friction to help hold the holster in place. In addition, I've added a stabilizer flap inside the belt loop that is set to the width of the belt. This also adds some friction, and keeps the holster firmly attached to the belt so it doesn't slide up and down vertically when drawing and re-holstering. Be sure to provide a belt width measurement as accurate as possible so the stabilizer strap can be correctly set. The front strap is semi permanent, and uses screw posts to hold it in place. This way it can be removed for the belt to be used on a slotted belt, or holster drop if desired.
The holsters are designed to fit Colt style revolvers used in CAS, such as the Ruger Vaquero and Cimarron Single Action Revolvers. They are made from a heavy 8-9oz. leather and finished in your choice of color. The inside is burnished for a slicker finish and less friction, but are not lined. The front strap is similar to the strap on my etched holster, and can be made with a decorative concho for an additional $5 per holster. Custom etched plates can be made for the strap as well as tooling the leather, please contact me for details and pricing for these options. For more photos, see the seperate SASS Holster listing.
The SASS Gun Belt is more basic than the Western Gun Belt, allowing more versatility. By leaving off the bullet loops, slides can be placed on the belt with different sized loops for different matches. Holsters can also be moved and adjusted to each individual shooter to maximize speed and comfort. It also allows different configurations to allow new shooters to decide on a setup that works best for them. As slides wear out, they can be easily replaced, and different holsters can be substituted as well.
The belt is made from a heavy 8-9oz. leather and finished in your choice of color. It's 2 1/2" wide, with a standard 1 1/2" front strap and buckle setup. The buckle is changeable to allow for customizing by a simple snap system. Sizing should be done by actual measurement at the height the belt is to be worn. For details on how to get size measurement, please watch the video below. Tooling designs can be added by special request. Please contact me for details.
The SASS Slides are more compact than the Bullet Vial Loops, and are specifically designed for Cowboy Action Shooting. The loops are made from a thin 2oz. leather and are stitched instead of riveting. While rivets are more durable in the long run, stitching allows more cartridges in a small space. This allows more ammo to be carried on the belt. The slides can be made to fit different belt widths, so be sure to provide the measurement of your belt. If you are ordering the SASS Gun Belt as well, the width is 2 1/2". Loops are available in 3 sizes:
Other sizes are possible; please contact me for details. The main part of the slide is made from a heavy 8-9oz. leather and finished in your choice of color. The SASS Starter Set comes with your choice of 2 slides.
