Having been in the holster business for 35 years I thought I would tell you all how it all started . Back around 1984 I came up with my pocket holster design which I knew was better than anything available on the market place. While I was member of the Los Angeles Police Department and assigned to uniformed patrol at Van Nuys division, I made up a dozen or so pocket holsters and gave them to my fellow officers and asked them to test the holster out while their were in the field and then complete a questionnaire. There was one particular officer who declined and told me that I was not going to get anywhere with my holsters. He went on to say that there were too many “big companies” out there and it would be impossible to compete with them. Being very passionate about my holsters, I took his statement as a challenge. I proceeded to drive nearly 400 miles the following Saturday throughout 3 counties in Southern California visiting some 30 or so gun stores. Every store manager sent me back out their door except one . His name was Charlie Webberly. He and he alone thought I had a functional pocket holster unlike anything he had seen. Subsequently , he ordered 6 holsters and then informed me he would get back to me if he needed more. Well, I went out his door just beaming with confidence thinking this was it. Days went by and I heard nothing. Weeks went by and I heard nothing but finally after 4 months of waiting, Mr. Webberly called and told me that he left the gun store and was now manager at the Los Angeles Police Revolver and Athletic Club and wanted to order 50 of my pocket holsters. This was the beginning of what I envisioned. Mr. Webberly believed in me and I was encouraged to muster on . That is exactly what I did and now after all these years and all the people who had faith in me and my holsters, I want to express a most heartfelt thank you. I look forward to provide you with your holster needs far into the future.
