    Alessi RIP

    A rare holster artist and will always cherish the two holsters Lou made for my HK's last December. Although we never physically met, our private emails as two old guys communicating for the last 8 months reinforced my belief in humanity. A true loss to the gun community and the world.

    He was the true definition of a craftsman as I have read and heard and witnessed his artforms. He will be sorely missed.

    I have only two Alessi-crafted items, but both are pieces of art. By all accounts, he was as good a person as he was a craftsman, and he will be missed.
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    Same here. My Alessi Bodyguard is the only shoulder holster I would consider using. And in a crowded field, the CQC is the best pancake holster made, IMO.

    Lou Alessi will be missed. I have only dealt with him via email but he has always been kind and helpful. His leather work is simply amazing.

    He was the world's greatest holstermaker, and the nicest guy I knew. Words can't explain how kind he was. His CQC-S holster alone is probably the most copied design extant, to say nothing of the Bodyguard or his PCH. I know he is sitting at the right hand of Our Lord...Tom

    God bless Lou........he helped all of us makers out at one time or another and was the first to offer help. May we all use his example to continue offering support and help to everyone we can. Hes the reason I make holsters.......
    What else can I say......he was simply a class act.
    god speed Lou.............
    Shoot well and god bless
    If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice..........Rush
