I have known about Alessi Holsters for many years. In fact I have purchased several for myself over the years. They are still my favorite holsters as they will conform to your body after carrying them for a while and I don?t think that you can ever wear one out.
I have been thinking that I would like to carry a line of premium holsters but really had not thought too much about it. Many of the premium holster makers deal directly with their customers and only make custom versions of their designs.
I was visiting with a gentleman at the Shot Show in 2013 and the subject of holsters came up. Turns out that he was a distributor for Alessi Holsters for years when he owned a gun shop. I mentioned that I wanted to carry a line of premium holsters and he offered to help me get set up with Tom Kulwicki who is now the president of Alessi Holsters.
The Alessi Holsters are absolutely among the best handmade holsters out there. They were designed by Lou Alessi who was a police officer. He was not satisfied with the holsters available to him for duty and off duty carry and he knew he could design holsters that would satisfy the officer who had to carry a side arm every day on duty and off duty. The holster had to be totally functional, comfortable, and last indefinitely. Lou definitely achieved his goal.
My thought is why buy a fine custom handgun or have yours customized to your specifications and then try to carry it in an mass produced holster that will never be comfortable and probably won?t last more than a couple of years of constant carry when you can buy an Alessi Holster that will be comfortable and last indefinitely.
I have selected the most popular Alessi Holsters for the handguns that we most commonly build or customize to keep in stock. Those holsters that I don?t carry are marked as special orders. Just be advised that the demand for Alessi Holsters is high and delivery will take several months for a special order. I have stocked the Mahogany color holsters. Black is available as a special order as are left hand holsters.
Thanks for your interest in Alessi Holsters.
