For 35 years, England’s Andy Arratoonian has personally designed and hand-crafted his Horseshoe Leather Products holsters to satisfy the requirements of serious concealed-carry citizens and professionals alike.
Arratoonian works in premium-grade, vegetable-tanned English cowhide, which he believes offers the best combination of fit, durability and attractiveness. The SOB2 is useful for anyone wishing to minimize the profile of a large-frame semi-automatic such as the M1911 as it discreetly nestles the gun into the hollow next to the small of the back.
Retention is by way of the holster’s gun-conforming fit, a result of wet blocking and hand molding to a specific firearm design. The SOB2 is available for 1¼- or 1½-inch belts and comes in saddle tan, cordovan or black leather. One caveat: Demand for his products necessitates a waiting period. Price: $95 plus postage.
