B&R's Holster Maker Database

This list is taken from the appendix of Hidden In Plain Sight, and contains the name and address of most of the holster makers in the U.S. To find out prices and what they sell, order a copy of Hidden In Plain Sight. The appendix is in tabular form, making it easy to find all makers of IWB holsters, for instance. Each entry in the Appendix looks similar to this:

Leather holster maker that caters primarily to the law enforcement market. Carries belt holsters for guns with laser sights, and magazine and speedloader carriers.

As you can see, this sort of information can help you quickly determine which companies sell products that you are interested in, and whether or not a particular company's products are in your price range. Since many of these companies charge several dollars for their catalogs, this can save you far more than the price of the book in catalog fees alone!
