1911 Holster

For more than a century, the 1911 pistol has been the preferred sidearm of American firearm enthusiasts, military and police personnel alike. It was the proprietary sidearm issued to U.S. Military members from 1911 to 1983 and has earned the reputation as the gun that won two world wars. Such a reliable firearm deserves a reliable gun holster, and there’s no better holster option than a custom Kirkpatrick leather 1911 holster. 

Kirkpatrick leather has hand crafted leather gun holsters for 1911s and other popular firearms from our shop in Laredo, Texas, since 1950. Every Kirkpatrick 1911 leather holster is hand-made to order.  You won’t find mass-produced gun holsters here. We have practiced the same tried-and-true methods since the beginning, custom designing each new holster to ensure beauty, durability, and comfort. You can be sure the Kirkpatrick name means the highest quality craftsmanship.
