Cowboy Holsters

Kirkpatrick Leather cowboy holsters come backed by more than 70 years of Texas gun holster craftsmanship. We’ve proudly made the world’s greatest gun leather from our workshop in Laredo, Texas, since 1950, and each holster rig is crafted only using the finest American leather.

Cowboy holsters are more than just a way to carry a gun. They are an icon of the American West, an inseparable part of Old West folklore. They were used by cowboys and ranchers throughout our history and made famous by lawmen and outlaws like Pat Garrett, Wyatt Earp, Billy the Kid and Jesse James. 

Because of their rich history, a cowboy western holster is as much a part of our western traditions as the guns they carry. At Kirkpatrick Leather Company we continue to promote our Western heritage by manufacturing high quality, hard-working, authentic Old West holsters and belts. The lead time for a Kirkpatrick western holster is 4 weeks.
