Take a Class!

Slickbald Custom Leather is located in Longmont Colorado. Longmont is just off I-25, about 30 miles North of Downtown Denver and only 1 hour North West of Denver International Airport.

There are many reasonable hotels within a couple of miles and I’ll feed you lunch each day.

Stay an extra day or two- Rocky Mountain National Park is just an hour’s scenic drive away!


3-Day Holster Class $950

This one on one class illustrates the proper installation (and need for) holster and belt liners, holster molding, the belt billet and chape, bullet loops, belt sizing, appropriate finishes, edge finishing, and machine stitching. These distinctly professional steps are overlooked or are “under-done” by many, I believe, as a result of too many un-professional holsters and gun belts mass-made and marketed as if they were “best”. Good salesmanship does NOT make good gun-leather, in and of itself most of us start out copying what’s out there to learn from, and most producers have found gimmicky ways to take shortcuts, thus setting a bad example. Take this class and distinguish yourself as a Professional Holster Maker! It is the intent of this class to teach the process and theory, and then be a foundation for the student’s own style and ideas, leaving significant room for your creativity and design.

Class includes all of Slickbald’s gun leather pattern packs for you to take home with you!
