Article: MY New Holster – CRAFT HOLSTER

Back at the end of 2017 I was contacted by a company called Craft Holsters asking if I was interested in a review with them. I checked out their site and decided to get a holster for my Remington R1 1911 Enhanced. I have always liked carrying my 1911 as 90% of the time I am more worried about wildlife over the dangers of a bad man. So I am not worried about printing because if a hog can see the outline of my pistol normally they just give up and throw themselves on the spit and we have roasted pig for dinner.

So, while Craft Holsters sent me a holster, my opinions are my own and I was not paid to write this review.

Shipping

I did not do my due diligence before they shipped the holster so I was extremely surprised to find that the holster was coming out of the Slovak Republic. This really has nothing to do with the holster but it was to me just an interesting side note.

“Specs”

I don’t know that you can call these specs but here is a little more info on the holster.

I opted with a Tan (I have had bad experiences with black staining my pants), Right handed model with “AJ” (my initials) embossed on the holster.

Breaking it in

On their website they have a Leather Break-in & Care page to help you if you have never used a leather holster before.

I have been carrying it for months (not daily but a few times a week) and I am finally at a stage where the leather is more comfortable and the gun is easier to draw.

On the same page as the break-in instructions, they show you how to care for the holster if you get scratches or if it needs to be cleaned.

Final Thoughts

Men don’t have purses but we can still be fashionable with our holster selections.

This holster does take time to get broken in and as long as you have patience and take simple care of it, I believe this Holster will last you for years.

Go check out Craft Holsters and if you buy something, tell them Atticus sent you.

NF
Bigger isn’t always better, but for the times when it is, reach for the HAMR. Chambered in 375 Cheytac, the Gunwerks HAMR is the next step in the evolution of extreme long range. The new Gunwerks HAMR launches a 377gr projectile with an incredible .950 G1 ballistic coefficient at nearly 3,000fps. With these phenomenal ballistics, the HAMR boasts a capable range of over 2 miles. 375Cheytec

The HAMR is a special edition, single-run rifle that we have developed to make some of the longest shots imaginable. This means once we sell out of these bad boys, they’re gone for good. The rifle comes standard topped with a Nightforce ATACR F1 7-35×56 scope, Elite Iron bipod, fully adjustable, tactical folding chassis, and aggressive muzzle brake to dramatically tame recoil. This rifle is surprisingly enjoyable to shoot. Overview

As with all Gunwerks rifles, the HAMR comes ready to go right out of the box. Check out the video to see the The HAMR in action.Cadex ChassisCaldwell
