New Leather Holster

I just received a new leather OWB Predator from Wright Leather Works. This one is for my S&W 640-1. I carry it on one of their leather solid bull hide gun belts 1/4" x 1 1/2". This is my second holster from Wright. I have been carrying my Shield in one for over a year. The workmanship, fit, and retention is the best I have seen. Looking forward to putting my 640-1 into my carry rotation. I know this is not an M&P, but when I have posted photos of my Shield in a Predator I received a lot of interest.

When I ordered my first one, it was 12-14 weeks. They have improved production since moving into their new building. Well worth the wait.

I have two Wright Leather Works holsters. You have a wait, but you get great looking holsters for sure.

I ordered my Wright Leather holster on November 25, 2014, received it JANUARY 30, 2015. It is a beautiful peace of work. My Shield fits perfect after about 1 hour of blocking. I will be ordering more.

Congratulations and I am glad you like it. Here is the way mine now looks after it molded to my body.

That's fast for custom holsters.

I'm still waiting on two Brommelands that I ordered last August.

I have a Predator for my Shield and one for a Glock 26. Great quality and fit. $88.00 plus $10.00 delivery not a bad price for custom leather.

That is why I am very excited about the deal I found on eBay. A Predator like new for my S&W 642-2, like new, for $36.00 plus $6.00 delivery.
