Contrary to popular belief, not everyone in the old American frontier carried a weapon.   Those who did, however, had to have some means of carrying their firearm in comfort.   Also, the gun had to be accessible and protected.   Each person’s holster told a story and interestingly, paralleled the development of handguns themselves.

Before the 1830’s single-shot pistols were carried in a belt sash, some had a metal clip on the side so that the gun could ‘hook’ onto the belt.   It was a cumbersome way of carrying a weapon.

In the 1850s, holster styles developed rapidly.   A greater variety of handguns became available, and people wanted to protect their weapons from exposure to the weather.   Holsters with flaps became available, but others wanted their guns to be quicker accessible, so their holsters had open tops.

Only in the 1920s, elaborate holsters with engraved buckles and trimmings became popular. Think the Lone Ranger and Tex Ritter: Their pistol holsters were fashionable and low slung, and the cowboys could quickly draw their weapons.

The Alpine Universal Pistol Slicker is a multipurpose pistol harness and holster of the twentieth century.   Using four connection buckles, it can be mounted to your chest or leg, making it a versatile piece of hunting equipment.

    I’ve been looking for a method to carry my Glock 20 while backpacking that would accomplish several things: Be weather proof; Not appear overly tactical looking; Be lightweight and no bigger than necessary to carry just the gun; Conceal the gun from view; Comfortable; Reasonably priced. After finding many options that checked a few of the boxes, I came across the Pistol Slicker, and it fit my criteria PERFECTLY. Having worn it on several hikes now, I can’t believe how comfortable it is to carry. Works well with my day pack and overnight pack and does not interfere with chest straps or hip belts. I haven’t been in a rain shower with it yet, so I can’t say how watertight the material is, but it’s so compact I can easily zip my jacket over it in a downpour. All-in-all it is a very well thought out design and well executed. The only slight knock against it is the Glock 20’s grip sticks up just a little above the plastic backer, causing the shell material to pull a little tight and awkwardly over it. But I played around with the leather retaining strap screw placement a little bit and improved how it rides on the backer to the point it’s not as noticeable. My guns that are just slightly smaller (Full size M&P and Glock 17) fit perfectly. Thanks for making such a great product!
