Taurus was founded in Brazil in 1939. It was origianlly a tool and die manufacturing company. In 1941 they developed their first handgun model 38101SO. In 1970, 54 percent of Taurus was purchased by Bangor Punta, who was also the parent company of Smith & wesson. This greatly benifitted Taurus and although both companies remained independent; they both shared informaiton regarding design and manufacturing. This lasted until 1977 when Taurus right’s were sold to it’s current owners.
In 1974, Taurus purchased the Beretta factory in Brazil after Beretta’s contract with the Brazil miliatry had been completed. The factory included technical drawings, tools, machinery, and work force. As a result Taurus developed one of their most successful semiautomtic handguns the PT92, a model similar to Beretta’s model 92. In 1984 Taurus USA was established. Taurus is one of the top five handgun manufactuers in the U.S. and they continue to develop new and innovative products that we can trust.
Most of our belt holsters for the Taurus models have a slight FBI cant that helps narrow the profile of the gun. This makes it more concealable. Some holsters also feature a reinforced top so they remain open for easy re-holstering. We have a variety of styles to choose from.
We have been proudly making our custom holsters right here in the great state of Texas, since 1950. All our holsters are custom made from high quality American leather.
How our holsters are built
We start by cutting from the best part of the hide. We then hand dye the holster to ensure a rich deep color that will accent your firearm. All our holsters are sewn using seven cord bonded nylon thread and double stitched in all critical areas. Each holster is then hand molded for a perfect fit and contoured to the hip for comfort. The edges are then sanded and hand burnished to a smooth glossy finish. This helps prevent moisture from entering the edges of the leather. They are then polished and finished with a clear coating to protect the finish. Our concealed carry designs secure your firearm while still providing instant access when needed. Our holsters are built to last a lifetime.
