Benfits of Side Guard Holsters

One of the problems I have faced is side protection.    All body types will appreciate a holster with good side protection.

What I have done is create IWB, OWB, Pocket holsters, belts and mag/accessory carriers that work for me.  I only sell the items if I first have used them. Please check out the Holsters link for more information on types of holsters and wh one might be right for you.

Why choose Side Guard Holsters for your handgun concealed carry needs?

1) Side protection makes it more comforable to carry your choosen pistol or revolver
2) Holster designed for different needs or carry styles "no one size fits all"
3) Custom leather holsters to meet YOUR carry needs - leather will always be more comfortable than plastic
4) 30 day no questions asked return policy

Proudly made in the Twin Cities Minnesota.  I try and use USA based suppliers whenever possible.

Customer Feedback:


The slide.  The holster was extremely tight at first, but has broken in well.  The leather is very stiff, which I like.  Conceal ability with this holster is very good, I have pulled off t-shirts and jeans with this holster regularly.  The cant of the gun in the holster is comfortable; practice draws were second nature and took no re-training from my previous holsters.  Joshua

Erik, I just wanted to drop a note thanking you for the beautiful holster and speed strip pouch you recently made for me.  I really like it, and it is everything you said it was on your website.  I will definitely be a repeat customer!  Thanks again, Paul

Tuck Clip: Good product & works nice. A few of my "Packin" friends could not believe I was carrying a 357 mag, Even my son who carries all the time did not notice anything & was surprised when I showed him. Thanks for a good product. Jim

Rough Out: I've been using the RO pocket holster for the last week and I am extremely happy with it.  It has been in my pocket since the day that I received it.  I will certainly recommend your holsters to all of my friends and co-workers.  Thanks again for the great products and service.  Ryan
