Welcome to Simply Rugged

As the name indicates, each holster is a simple design, but they are also very rugged and will protect the firearm while you are out in the field or carrying concealed. Holsters are hand molded around each type of firearm to provide a snug fit and hold it in place whether you are riding horse back, on your 4-wheeler, snow machine, fly fishing or hiking on a trail through the woods. For more examples of the retention capabilities look at our customer testimonials page. Our leather is dyed a rich cordovan color and then top coated with a clear coat to further protect the leather.

Customer service is the most important part of our business. We want you to be satisfied with your purchase, if you need adjustments or repairs, we will gladly make them or refund your money upon return of the product.

Thanks for taking a look. E-mail us with any questions you may have.

Rob and Jan Leahy, owners

Rob: I was pleasantly surprised to have the two holsters I ordered arrive in the mail yesterday, as it was earlier than the estimated delivery. First off the quality of the leather and the top notch craftsmanship are far and above anything I have seen to date. Secondly the fit of pistols in both holsters were near perfect and with a very short work up are now easy draws, while still maintaining a solid seating of the weapons. I could not be more pleased and you can expect more orders from me in the near future.
Thanks Bill
