  The Triple K (KKK?) flap holsters hold up pretty well (Hawg is gonna say “no they don‘t“).

Why would I say that? Yeah I'm down on Oklahoma Leather because it's chrome tanned. KKK leather is veg tanned.


Right you are Hawg. Consistent too.  My reference confused KKK with Oklahoma Leather from my post and your response from over six years ago.  My view of Oklahoma L. has changed over time and is now in accord with your own.  My KKK leather has done real well with prolonged and fairly heavy use but the Oklahoma Leather much less so, especially the tan colored stuff. Various leather conditioners on the tan Oklahoma Territory holsters turned them way too soft (you warned of that).  Black has seemed somewhat more durable.

Thanks for that vote of confidence G Dog,  and thanks to Omnivore for the earlier mention.

If I'm gonna have a holster, I'd want it vegetable tanned.  If vegetables are good for you, then they're good for your leather!  Picked out two makers and two styles:

http://www.7xleather.com/western_holsters ... Check out "The Remington Rig".  I also wouldn't mind the "7X Holster" as an alternative.  It also happens to be on topic.  Both rigs shown, very, very nice!

http://www.oldwestholsters.com/old_west_products/Sets/holster_set-4.html ... Not my second chosen maker, but this is the other style of holster I'd like.  Though without the carving detail.  I like my gear plain.  And functional.  Just like my guns.

the attachment below shows more of the exact style I'm looking for, sans fanciness, though the color is perfect.  Want something in a nice, dark brown.

From the look of it you could probably take a regular slim jim and adapt a spur strap to it.

Neat idea, Hawg... would certainly be appropriate!
