    Happy New Year! Keep up the good work! When are we going to see a shoulder holster from you? With your talent, It would be a big seller up north in the liberal states when winter keeps the layers too hard for easy access to IWB holsters. I recently have been wearing an older shoulder holster from B. Keep me posted.

      As of right now we are so busy just making the models we currently have I just have not had time to prefect the shoulder holster design I have been working on.

    Hello Jay,
    All I can say is I haven’t got all the words to say what a masterful craftsman that you are. The wait was well worth it. I am a very happy customer. Thanks for the great customer service, and the personal touch you have sent me and my family. I wish you and your team the very best.

    God Bless you all.

    I am thinking about purchasing the OWB high ride for a Glock 19, i figure it will conceal better in the winter months with a sweater over it, and with your experience is there anything i should know about your holster and this idea.


    • 12-25-2012

      When people tell me that they are looking at an OWB holster and plan to conceal it with a shirt or sweatshirt, the first thing I think is”Why”? There are two main reasons to carry OWB: Speed of draw or comfort, and unquestionably these are both true with OWB carry. But when you add a cover garment that has to be lifted over the holster and the gun to draw, you eliminate the speed factor and create a situation that will not happen with the Invisi-Tuck. Your gun will print. If you are concealing with a cover garment that is open in the front and you can sweep it away, this becomes less of a problem but the Invisi-Tuck would serve the purpose better in that situation as well. The comfort of an OWB holster should not be the deciding factor in selecting a holster for concealment, especially when you can buy a holster that almost everyone that has ever purchased one will say “is the most comfortable holster they have ever worn” (the Invisi-Tuck). The High ride holster is a beautiful holster and is well suited for OWB carry but the advantages of OWB carry are obsoleted when you conceal it. This is just my opinion based on observation of carry practices of so many people and my personal experience.

    I am a little bit bigger guy and I carry a full sized taurus 24/7 which in a typical IWB holster the butt of the gun has a little indention where it sticks around the curve of my body. I wanted to try one of your extreme invisi-tuck as it would make the butt go up my body instead of beside it. How much more would it cost to make the extreme for my gun? Thanks.

    • 11-27-2011

      The Extreme will not work properly for the wider double stack guns. (The retention and draw just do not work well with this design) You will find that the Standard Leather Invisi-Tuck IWB Holster will work best for the Taurus 24/7. The Invisi-Tuck has three adjustment holes on both sides of the pocket. You should find this enough to get a comfortable fit.

    If there is one thing alot of companies (large or small) have lost these days in order to secure a good business clientel is to know the meaning of Real CUSTOMER SERVICE. American Holster Company knows the meaning of Real CUSTOMER SERVICE. Just for an example… Most people do not work on Labor Day. I came across a concealed carry magazine that I read on a regular basis and read some information on this company and I figured I would leave them a telephone message for a specific extremely hard to find holster, all the while thinking that I would not get an answer until after Labor Day, at least. Well, the telephone rang within the hour and yup! It was American Holster bending over backwards to help me in my quest. Now that is good customer service, coupled with good quality merchandise and low customer returns. Keep up the good work American Holster and you will be highly successful in your quest in business.

    Jay, I am a private investigator from Kentucky that carrys a Kimber CDP Ultra II. I injured my right shoulder several years ago and have found that I do not have to rotate my right shoulder as much when I carry at the 4-5 o’clock position with the butt of the gun turned out. I currently am using a left’handed IWB turned to that position. My problem is there is no cant and a regular FBI type cant would be backwards. Could you make me a left-handed Invisa-Tuck holster with a reverse cant(cant away from spine). Have you ever had anyone make a request like this? I think some people call it “Mexican Carry” when it is without the holster????? I would also like the holster to be open in the bottom so I could carry my Kimber or a Colt Commander or regular 5″ 1911, if that is possible. I look forward to hearing from you.

      We do not advocate carry with the butt of the gun down because when you draw the weapon from that position you will be crossing your body with the muzzle of the gun. However the Invisi-Tuck Extreme cant has been used well for customers that have past shoulder injuries.
