A holster that combines beauty and fast draw, much like its namesake combines beauty and stealth, with a quick and lethal strike.
We approached this design as an OWB holster, snug to the gun but not overly tight, attractive, well balanced with a medium-high ride profile, and a straight-drop holstering / drawstroke. The result is an OWB holster made for pure hip-carry (from appendix to 3 o'clock positioning), with virtually no cant angle, keeping the grip of the gun where the hand falls naturally.
All leather, with the ability to make it upscaled with exotic skins, or airbrushed colors.
- Sturdy construction ensures one-handed re-holstering.
- Efficient on / off of the holster on your belt via a snap-loop, in the event you must disarm and secure your firearm quickly and easily.
- Formed exactly to your guns...not a one-size-fits-all nylon rig.
- Hand-made and built-to-order, the form-fitted boning process ensures maximum safety in keeping foreign objects out of the trigger area so as to prevent unwanted / accidental discharge..
- Optional Retention Strap for those customers who desire an additional layer of safety via positive and secure retention of the firearm.
When you place an order for a Viper, you'll have a few choices. Black, or airbrushed color? Straight-up leather, or an exotic skin? Customizing is easy!.
Below are a few samples to help you visualize the design of your one-of-a-kind holster.

"The most rigorous test I put it through however happened more as an accident when I went hunting this past deer season and bagged my first deer. I forgot my other holsters so the Viper got the job of holding my 357 as my father and I stumbled through the brush looking for game trails and/or deer. It didn't matter what I stumbled through...briers, branches, mud...not once did my revolver budge from the Viper and not once did the snaps which keep the holsters retention loop closed even look like they were getting loose."
