Hey all! I just got my first hand-made holster in a few days ago, so I thought I'd share my pride, now that I have a full setup. I got a Texas Heritage from Tucker Gunleather (http://tuckergunleather.com/), since I needed a tuckable holster and that sat nicely in my price range. Before I got this, I'd been using a Desantis Tuck-This! holster, and the difference is almost unimaginable. Going from the T-T with the single clip stacked on top of the gun to the Heritage with the clips on either side just made it feel like the gun vanished from my hip! I think it's a very handsome holster, and it fits my Bersa .380 perfectly - additionally, Rob was great about returning my calls and answering my newbie questions. The only thing I can almost say I dislike is that I figured the kydex C-clamps would actually be in the shape of a "C" and lip over my belt on either side - this isn't the case, there's only a lip on the bottom and a flat cap on the top of the clip, but I presume that's simply the way they're made, and I still like them better than the J-clips. I apologize if the pics are not entirely clear...for some reason, even with multiple lights in the room, I can't seem to get my camera to take any pictures indoors that aren't incredibly dark - the ones down there are -after- I brightened them in photoshop. It's a very cool feeling to know I have everything I need at last...now, it's just time for, say, another gun...or a dozen...I could get hooked!

I have been wondering if he could make one for the Bersa. I have meant to e-mail him and ask, now I know.
In the pic the skin gaurd does not cover the tang, does it cover it when you are wearing it? If it doesn't do you find the tang digging into your side?
Thanks for the info. That thing can be painful when it digs in without warning.
I'm trying to decide if I want one with the two clips like yours or the one with the single clip. I think the two may spread out the pressure a bit. I think I want to try the velcro clips.
How long did it take to get your holster made.
I was wondering if you could tell me how low the holster/gun rides?
a picture is worth a thousand words
I can easily get a full grip on the gun while holstered.
If you want the clips to cover belt in actual "C" shape do the following.
Heat top of clips with hair dryer with belt in place. You can then bend top of clips down over belt. Works real well
Thanks a lot for the pictures. Due to difficulties with my cheap one clip holster with the butt poking out I was hoping it would sit lower. But since it has that rear clip I think it will hold the butt of the gun close to the body. I can't wait to get it and try.
The top lip of the C-Clip puts the weight of the gun on the belt and works best with a rigid gunbelt and poorly with single layer belt straps.
That's why they are made the way their made.
