"Bilge Rat" Economy Holsters

 

I realize that not everyone desires (or is able) to spend a lot of money on a high-end holster. This is where the Bilge Rat line comes in!

These holsters don't have all the features of my regular offerings, but they're still solid, functional holsters, at a more accessible price.

Here's what's different with the Bilge Rat line:

  • The patterns have been simplified to ease production

  • No body shields

  • No reinforcement panels

  • Although there is some basic molding for proper retention, there is no detail boning

What hasn't changed:
  • They're still made out of premium Hermann Oak leather, tanned in the USA

  • They're still built with borderline-OCD attention to detail

  • The edges are still beveled and burnished (a step ignored on almost all low-end, and many mid-range holsters)

 

So, what's the catch?

They're strictly an in-stock item. What you see is what's available.

These are built in my spare time. I will list them on this page when they're available, but I will not be accepting Bilge Rat orders. 

As with all in-stock items, shipping is on me (USPS to the lower 48 states). For shipping to Alaska, Hawaii, or internationally, please contact me.

If you're interested in anything listed here, please contact me via the contact form, or email me at wes@privateerleather.com .
