Hide With a Wild Side: Exotic Holsters
March 04, 2014
Leather holsters have been used for ages because they offer reliable weapon retention, durability, comfort and aesthetics. Many designs and variations exist, but cowhide leather remains among the most popular holster materials on the market today.
However, for those folks seeking an added touch of class, holsters made from exotic materials offer a unique style and are tough enough to withstand the rigors of daily carry.
When it comes to unique style, exotic leathers are an excellent choice. You may be familiar with many hides like pig, alligator and ostrich. But other leathers such as cape buffalo, hippo, stingray, elephant, lizard and even frog are also available, each of which make for great holster designs. Which one you choose has to do with your personal needs, your tastes and your budget.
It's important to note that the leather holsters listed here all come from animals that are either farmed for consumption (pig and ostrich) or the skins are harvested legally from species that are not endangered.
This showcase of exotic holsters is sure to take you for a walk on the wild side.
