As its name suggests, The Don is an exceptionally crafted high quality 1911 holster fit for the best. Boasting a fully lined interior to offer maximum protection for your firearms, this holster is handmade using 10oz traditionally veg tanned leathers and a 2oz lining for a total durable thickness of 12oz. The smooth full grain lining is easy to wipe out to reduce grit and holster wear damage to your firearm. The beautiful western style offered for various 1911 models adds a unique look to your every day carry.

Hellhound gun leathers, belts and holsters, are works of art that are made to order and handcrafted one at a time in our workshop in Utah. These are not mass produced or made ahead of time and each holster is carefully hand cut and crafted to fit your firearm. We source our leather from US tanneries and none of our leather products are outsourced or manufactured outside our workshop. 

This item is made to order, so crafting time may take up to two weeks. Please also be aware that, depending on the season, there may also be a wait-list of over a month. Please see our FAQs for current lead times! If you're in a hurry and need the item before that, contact me and we'll do what we can to help you out.

We understand that purchasing a holster for your gun is a very personal process and we invite you to call Gavin directly at 385-707-3751 with any questions, concerns or custom requests. If you do not see your firearm listed in the options, but like this style, give us a call and we'll get you set up with one!

We are happy to take custom orders if you require modifications (such as cant degree or cross draw if you don't prefer a straight drop holster) that we do not list - just contact me!

**NOTE Regarding Cross Draw Holsters: If you prefer a Cross Draw holster, please be aware that selecting the "Cross Draw" option will slightly alter the holster to accommodate for cross draw carry. The skirt of the holster will be shortened to the collar and widened at the belt loop to reduce twisting. Our standard cant for cross draw holsters is 20 degrees. If you would like more information on how a cross draw holster will appear or if you would like a sharper cant on your holster, please contact us.
