    Nossar Gunleather - Very Impressive!!!

    How often do you see a holster-maker plugging the competition?
    Well, I firmly believe in giving credit where it's due, and I handled a holster today that is one of the most impressive I have seen in a long time. It has been quite a while since I've handled a holster and thought "I couldn't do that! How does he do it?"

    A buddy of mine who is a certifiable holster junkie ordered an IWB from Alex Nossar of Nossar Gunleather in Peru (www.nossargunleather.com). (The photo below is not of my friend's holster, but an identical holster that I swiped it from another forum).
    The design is nothing that hasn't been done before but the construction is what I'm so impressed by. This is without a doubt, hands down, bar-none, the thinnest IWB I have ever seen (and I've seen them all).

    Most of us are using 6-7 oz leather for our IWB holsters. This holster appears to be 3-4 oz horsehide construction. And yet it is incredibly stiff. I could not get it to collapse no matter where I tried. The double-thickness trailing wing is about the thickness of a nickel, and that's double thickness! That's thinner than the single thickness of leather most of us are using! The mouthband is steel reinforcement covered with shark, and is still half the thickness of a single 6-7 oz piece!
    The fit, finish, and stitching are gorgeous! I don't know how he's doing it!
    Maybe horses are thinner in Peru!

    My hat's off to you, Alex, as I humbly bow down!

    That IS a nice looking holster, looks like it rides nice and low too. The grain in the grips is beautiful too. Ironwood I wonder?

    ETA- there appears to be an extra ) in the link, so it's not working....

    That is some beautiful work indeed.

    I checked the master holster links page and found we had not got him on there - so have added it.

    While no expert I seem to see a lot of very nice little details on that very nice holster.....

    My OWB and IWB from Alex arrived in the U.S. today from Peru and with luck will be in my mailbox by Saturday. Alex is a super nice guy and suprisingly a relative unknown to most gun owners. His holsters are competitively priced, wait time is extremely reasonable (three months) and his work is just awesome!! He's not taking orders till at least February but check out http://www.nossargunleather.com, you won't be sorry!!

    Wow some nice work there. Great detail to shaping and stitching. Who would have thought Peru would be the place to find fine leather holsters! Thanks for showing us!
