This style holster is often referred to as a “pancake” holster. Two slots on either side allow the weapon to be pulled tight to the body and the flat, back side of the holster conforms to the curve of the hip. Designed to not collapse when the gun is withdrawn, this holster has several special features. Holster is constructed from high grade, noncorrosive leather with partial double stitching for added strength and is hand-boned to fit only this gun frame. This classic design is fit for open or concealed carry and provides superior weapon retention. New holsters will have a snug, tight fit and will only loosen slightly with use. Holster also is equipped with a sweat shield to keep the firearm from rubbing against your body.
