    I am very pleased with this holster. I’ve been carrying a famous brand leather pancake holster for years, and this is definitely an upgrade. Fit and finish are great. It has some of the best quality stitching I have ever seen in a holster. The color is a bit lighter than it appears in the picture. I’m sure it will darken over time, so that’s not a problem for me, but it is worth mentioning. I would definitely purchase this one again.

    I purchased the Companion holster for my every day carry, the Ruger SP-101 revolver. The work is stunning and very well made. The holster rides high and tight and conceals well. I highly recommend any products made by

    I was excited when I got my limited edition 5” barrel Ruger GP100, but wasn’t so excited to find out that practically no one stocks a holster for the 5″ model. I had never ordered custom leather before, but I quickly realized a custom holster was my only option and found DC Gunleather after a few days’ worth of research. Eric didn’t have a mold for the 5″ gun but went out of his way to find one for me, and in relatively short order produced a a beautiful piece of craftsmanship. The fit, finish, and stitching on my custom contender holster are perfect – I fully expect this holster will get passed on to my kids along with the revolver! I’ll be back again next time I need a holster!
