NOW ONLY IN A NEW SOFT COVER EDITION AT A LOWER PRICE -- SAME FIRST QUALITY PAGES AND IMAGES.

"Holstory" is the complex tale of the hundreds of men and women of the American saeculum 1905-1985 - the historic period when all the innovation in American gunleather was accomplished - who revolutionized gunleather designs to suit the Twentieth century and the repeating cartridge pistol. 

 

Think of the FBI's 'Jelly' Bryce; who drew his S&W .44 from his Myres' holster so quickly in 1934 that all five shots were in a gangster's head before the other man could pull the trigger.

 

'Holstory ' is filled with biographical information about the fifty significant holster makers whose companies produced the seminal designs of modern gunleather - and are still made today.

 

It's all accomplished in 224 full-size pages containing 74,000 words, 360 color images, and 1,100 footnotes in support.  

By R.E.D. Nichols and John Witty.
