The Contender is a classic full coverage, pancake style holster.

This design provides even weight distribution across a wider portion of your belt, resulting in a very secure and comfortable carry experience. The distance between the belt slots and the frame of the firearm is a vital, and often overlooked, detail in holster design, as this measurement will determine how much (or how little) the firearm is pulled in snugly against your body. This distance is carefully considered with each build to ensure that the perfect balance between comfort and concealment is achieved.

This product is handmade to order in the USA using premium steer hide from the Hermann Oak Leather Company.

    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!
