I’ve been watching a lot of Western movies lately to energize my Cowboy Vibe for diving back into writing “Silvershot”. For giggles I watched Last Man Standing, with Bruce Willis. This is a movie I’ve only watched once or twice before, a long time ago. After careful consideration, I have to say that it’s one of my favorite Westerns.
I’m not sure what shoulder rig Bruce Willis used, but it looked great. I’m kinda strange that way… checking out the holsters and other gear in the movie instead of just the cool guns and hot chicks. This movie though, it’s hard to look past the stars of the show – Bruce’s twin Government Models. It makes me want to acquire a second Springfield GI and a shoulder rig.
Well, maybe not. But I am going to be ordering a custom shoulder rig from Adams Holsters. I really love his leatherwork and his shoulder rig design looks like it just might give Galco’s Miami Classic a good run for it’s money. I’ve been well pleased with my holsters from Adams Holsters. Lucas Adams does fantastic work Now, his lead times on his stuff is a little long… Understand though that he makes everything by himself, one at a time, by hand. You can’t get that.
I was recently sent another holster from another small leather operation run by a friend of mine. He made me a simple rig for my ATI Commander. I’ve be reviewing it later, but in case he’s reading – I am enjoying the holster. Thank you.
With such talented people around the country, making holsters by hand often for the price of a big name company’s production holsters… Why would you buy something Mass Market? You could have something unique and wonderful. Nice guns need nice leather, simple as that. And while we might not be able to afford all the nice custom guns we want… we can certainly afford some custom leather.
