If you are searching for a battle tested holster design having a fit and complete that's second to none, then Bulman Gunleather might be 1 for you to appear at. Dependent in Newry, PA; this organization was founded by master holster maker Josh Bulman. Bulman's operation is really a totally made to order provider of gun holsters and shooting accessories.
Typically, most custom holster makers only produce a select few holster models so they can concentrate on building those models for various weapons. Bulman takes a little different approach as his company produces a number of different holster models for different needs. For example, he offers 9 different belt holster models and 10 different IWB holster models. Instead of taking a "one holster type" fits all approach, Josh believes that specific holster models are designed for specific uses.
Josh takes great pride in the quality of his goods and does some things that kind of set him apart from some other top level custom made holster makers. For instance, instead of using edge dressing or something comparable to finish off the outside edges of holsters or accessories, Bulman actually burnishes the edges with various waxes to seal them. Additionally, Bulman does outstanding job of boning the holsters for a fantastic and every item that leaves the shop. He also requires some steps that go just a little beyond what his competitors do. For instance, most holster makers seal the edges of the holster or mag carrier with a kind of sealant known as edge dressing. Bulman doesn't use edge dressing and prefers to seal the edges with multiple coats of wax using a technique known as burnishing.
Bulman produces a number of incredibly nice holster models in different configurations including OWB, IWB, paddle, and pocket. Having owned a number of Bulman models, my favorites are the THR (The High Ride), the QRH (Quick Release Holster), and the PDC (Professional Dual Clip).
Over the years, I've been surprised at the number of shooters who have never heard of Bulman Gunleather. In part, I suspect it has to do with the fact that Bulman is a recognized and known 1911 fan so he has a huge fan base in that market. Outside of the 1911 line, he isn't nearly as well known. However, I would never let that stop me from purchasing a Bulman holster. I own several and have never regretted a single Bulman purchase.
