Concealment Holster Solutions
4-16-16 UPDATE: Now taking New Orders...Please note I'm building ONLY Traditional Style Holsters now.
Welcome to Concealment Holster Solutions. I am a one-man business dedicated to those who carry pocket sized weapons, specifically, the fine firearms offered by North American Arms. I hand make every pocket holster and actually use my products on a daily basis. My designs are simple, straight-forward and designed to do two things; orient the weapon correctly in the pocket for an easy draw and obscure the outline of the weapon. They do not have unnecessary flourishes or trendy designs. All detail molding is on the side facing the body, with the outside left plain for concealment. Every holster incorporates a slight curve to match the contour of the leg to minimize printing and is made from American hides.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Do you offer holsters that hold spare ammo?
A: For a variety of reasons, this is something I do not offer, nor do I have plans to in the future.
Q: What's that big flap of leather for? Why is the holster so big?
A: The wing area of the holster serves an important function. It serves to keep the holster and weapon upright and correctly oriented in the pocket. If it were not there, the weapon and holster would just lay in the bottom of the pocket in random position.
Q: Do you make a holster for the (fill in the blank)?
A: If you don't find your gun on the main page list, I don't build for it. From time to time, new models are added, but my main focus is, and will remain, the offerings from North American Arms, as I feel they offer the best balance in performance, concealability and value.
Q: What is a 'Draw Button'?
A: The draw button is now standard on all holsters unless you specifically tell me you do not want it. It has no retention function; it serves only to assist in starting the gun out of the holster. As the holstered gun is grasped, it falls under the trigger finger and can be pushed against to begin the draw. Again, unless you tell me otherwise, every holster has this.
Q: I can't find the order button. How do I order?
A: Click on the Contact tab at the top of this page and send me an email at email@example.com. I need to know what gun you have , your barrel length, color choice and whether you need left or right hand. I make every effort to respond to emails within 24 hours, usually sooner.
Q: You show a Black Widow holster in right hand and in black, but not in brown and left hand. Can you make that for me?
A: There is not enough room to have a photo of every possible combination of color, hand, barrel length, etc. It is really simple; if you see your gun in the gun list, I can build your holster in any color and for either hand.
Q: I want a holster made of soft leather. Will you make me one and also make it look like this photo I sent?
A: I have just dealt with a customer who wanted a slightly smaller holster made out of soft leather. This simply will not work. While there are degrees of softness, any leather you might call 'soft' cannot accept wet-molding the way a firmer leather will. Result; a holster that isn't firm enough to hold the molding and has retention problems. The leather I use is tanned to my specifications in the USA. It is firm enough to mold well, yet retains a degree of flexibility in use.
What is the current wait time for a holster? Right now (4-16-2016), I am running a minimum of five weeks from order date to ship date. Expect that time to only increase!
Currently I can produce holsters in both left and right hand configurations for the following weapons.
***** IF YOUR GUN ISN'T ON THIS LIST, I DO NOT BUILD FOR IT. *****
*****I DO NOT BUILD FOR ANY OF THE LASERLYTE-EQUIPPED REVOLVERS!*****
******MY HOLSTERS WILL NOT WORK FOR NAA MODELS WITH HOLSTER GRIPS INSTALLED******
Please note that I do not produce belt mounted holsters, either in-the-waistband or belt-mounted. I fully believe in pocket carry as the most practical solution for most people, and especially for the small firearms listed above. If you are willing to make the sacrifices required to conceal a weapon on your belt, it might as well be something a lot bigger than any of these models.
Also, for several reasons, I do not produce holsters with pouches or loops for spare ammunition.
The draw button option, shown at the bottom of the page, simply provides a convenient spot to push against with the trigger finger to start the draw. It is a standard feature on all holsters, unless you specifically tell me you do not want it.
Contrary to LaserLyte, NONE of my holsters will work with any LaserLyte product! At one time, I did build for the NAA-1 model, but as of April 19, no further holsters for guns with a laser will be produced. While I thought the new Mighty Mouse model might work, I've checked and it does not. Please keep this in mind if you want a holster and then intend to get a laser.
I do not accept PayPal because of their strong support for Anti-Second Amendment organizations. I accept either checks or money orders for payment.
Colors available are Black or Brown. Occasionally, other colors are available as well. I usually also have some natural tan hides and these are especially suitable if you want a holster made rough-side-out.
If you would like your initials on your holster, I can add them for $2. There is room for two initials on most every holster, and possibly three on some. Just let me know what you would like and I'll let you know if I can do it. Initials don't turn out as well on rough-side-out holsters for obvious reasons.
A word on shipping times. I currently am able to ship in most cases within 5 weeks of placing your order. USPS shipping is included in the price. Do keep in mind this is a general guide; you are ordering a made-to-order product, produced by hand, by me alone. I can only make them so fast! Drying time is a factor in every holster I make and is something I cannot rush.
Demand has outstripped my ability to keep shipping times reasonable. Rather than return to an overwhelming backlog, I only accept so many orders per month. I've had some health issues that have also impacted my work and ask for your patience as I work through that. The nature of this type of work prevents me from out-sourcing or speeding up the process and I'm sorry for that.
The photos below show some possible combinations, but space precludes showing every possible variation. If your gun is listed above, I can build for it. There is now (4-16-16) only one style I build; the traditional. I NO LONGER BUILD the Special Edition or Rounded styles. I have started offering the traditional holsters in rough-side-out. These aren't much to look at and are extreme 'lint-magnets', but they do stay in position much better that the smooth-side-out models. If pocket stability is a premium consideration for your circumstances, I suggest you try a rough-side-out.
Please use the Contact Page to email me with questions or orders. How to order is clearly spelled out on the Contact page. Please include the requested information to avoid unnecessary delays.
Frequently asked questions are answered at the bottom of this page. All holsters are $37 and shipping via USPS is included.
