How to order gun leather
Belt Sizing and Your Measurements
Our belts are made according to your measurements from the information that you provide at the time of ordering. Measure around your hips where you would like the belt to be positioned using a tape measure. Always use a tape measure to ensure accuracy.
Do not estimate your waist size or rely on your pants size. Please measure over the pants or trousers you plan using with the belt.
Any adjustments made due to inaccurate sizing information may be subject to a service charge. Gun belts are generally worn as shown just below the standard belt line of your pants or trousers.
Buscadero style belts like the Grizzly Dead or Alive that are less than 36 inches in length may force the buckle off center when worn to properly position the holster on the leg. On smaller belts the number of loops may have to be adjusted to fit the space available to leave enough room for the holsters.
When ordering a holster right hand means that it is for the right hand and left hand for the left hand. This applies to crossdraw holsters as well. If you want a right handed crossdraw holster select Right Hand Crossdraw and then the cant or angle it hangs from the belt. Side will refer to position only.
Stamping, Color and Finish
Each belt and holster is custom made by hand. No two pieces will ever be exactly the same. Stamping, carving and the color of each piece may vary and thus enhance the rustic appearance and artistic value of the handcrafted gun leather you have purchased. Holsters receive the full pattern and belts have a modified version as shown in the product photo.
Gun belts and holsters ordered together will be perfectly matched within the constraints previously mentioned. Items ordered separately have a stronger chance of differing slightly from matched sets. We take pride in our work and would not build you anything that we would not want for ourselves.

All of our gun leather is crafted with only the finest American leather. The belts and holsters are constructed of 8/9 oz leather. Both are fully lined with 5/6 oz. leather lining.
All orders are started at the time of purchase. We only build what we need and have no standing inventory, so most orders will ship 3 to 4 weeks after they have been placed. This gives us the time we need to properly construct and finish your custom leather product and assure the best possible quality.
All leather products are built based on the specifications provide by you at the time of purchase. Please double check your order to make sure it is correct. If the product meets the specifications provided by you at the time of purchase and the product is not defective in workmanship or materials, then we cannot accept it for return.
All of the products here are bench made by Ron Collins aka IronGrizzly from high quality leather, fully lined, and hand stitched. Dye is applied and hand rubbed to give it a deep rich color. Olive Oil is generously applied to help soften the leather. Finally the leather is sealed with a covering of acrylic based top finish to protect and lock in the color.
Caring for your gun leather
Here are a few simple things that you can do to keep your gun leather looking good for many years to come.
1. Never store your handguns in the holsters for long periods of time. This could cause excessive wear on the finish of the handgun.
2. Never store your cartridges long term in the loops especially when you first get the rig. The Olive Oil used to soften the leather will leech out and evaporate for several weeks and has a corrosive effect on the shell casings if stored long term making them green.
3. Always use “Dr. Jackson's Hide Rejuvenator” to take care of your leather. The finest leather conditioner available! Hide Rejuvenator actually replaces natural oils, cleans, softens, protects and increases water repellency. May darken leather due to oil restoration. Test a non-visible area before use. Do not use on suede.
IronGrizzly is a maker of western holsters, revolver holsters, cowboy holsters and gun belts
