    Where to buy Holster Parts for making your own?

    I have an opportunity to try making my own holsters but need help in finding an internet source where I can buy parts like clips, snaps, etc. I have a friend who's made leather saddles, bridles, and even some western holster rigs for decades. He's willing to help me and I have some ideas but would like to purchase the right clips, etc. I'd like to take some of what I've seen in all the custom holsters I've purchased and try to add of few of the features I'd like, such as a greater cant or different location of the clip, etc.

    Does anyone know of some good sites for purchasing this type of material?

    Thanks all and God Bless
    Gideon

    He obviously has leather.

    For the Kydex clips, contact Comp-tac.

    For spring steel clips, look up CDL Springs in El Monte, CA.

    Your friend will likely have plenty of dyes and finishes for you.
    www.ubgholsters.com short wait times. Use 'defensivecarry' as a coupon code for a discount to your order.

    You live in MO so that's a sign ... seems like a lot of holster makers reside there. Be sure and post your work when you get to that point!

    Good luck, and I'll check around here to see if I still have the catalog I got from someplace that pretty much has it all. I believe Tandy is one source also.

    Thanks guys for the inputs. The comp-tac clips will probably work. My friend has everything on the leather side. So if anyone finds any more info on snaps for leather belt loops, (the directional kind), please let me know or PM me.

    Thanks guys and if I ever get it done I'll be sure to post a picture!

    God Bless
