New holster from Ryan Grizzle

Got my latest order from Ryan Grizzle today. It's a Georgia Snap 2 in horsehide with shark trim for my P226. It is absolutely beautiful. It is very well crafted,leather looks great,stitching is perfect. Gun fits like a dream. Breaking in now with a plastic bag as recommended. If anyone was on the fence this should help. I don't know what gun my next one will be but I know where my next custom holster will come from.

That dude makes some damned good looking holsters.

I'm in the market for a holster for a P-239. I came hair close to pulling the trigger on his high ride. But I yanked that hair outta there. I have time. I want the right one.

One of the the serious problems of buying a 'net holster is we can't try it on before buying. And I seriously doubt that a holster maker is going to eat the cost of his craftsmanship and material by taking back a custom made holster. And I wouldn't blame him as long as he delivered as described.

I have a feeling that any of Ryan's holsters would sell quickly on the secondary market if it wasn't working out for you. I know the feeling of having a box of holsters that didn't work out.I have not had that issue with any Ryan Grizzle holsters.The most painful part of the process is selection of colors/trims/options and waiting to unwrap the package.

Good Morning, alinc100,

I've recently bought a P239 .40 S&W. I'm huntin' up a holster for it. I've learned the expensive way to not rush in to buying holsters that I won't use. I have a box full of 'em now, some I've never used.

I'm a hair shy of pulling the trigger on this one:


Is this the same one you've bought? If so, could you please give us an update on your review in about a month?

How is gun retention? If you put your gun in it and turned it upside down, will your gun fall out?

I'm not going to rush in to a holster purchase, especially one I haven't tried before parting with my $$$. But for some reason, every time I see it on Grizzle's Website, I have an intense urge to hit the buy icon.

Good Morning, goofyfool,

Me too. The color of that holster is darn near as drop dead gorgeous as Kate Upton. I wonder whether she'd be engaged to Justin Verlander if he didn't make 28 mil a year working a half-inning every fifth day while throwing for the Detroit Tigers. Maybe so.

I'm long past done with black basket weave.

For those of you on the fence -- here is my report a few days ago.

This is his model Georgia Snap 2, Right Hand, Mahogany, Sig P226 Legion. OWB









This is my 3rd RGRIZZLE holster, and his quality is unmatched. IMO, his prices are very reasonable for the quality you will get.

Ryan's holsters always arrive very stiff and VERY tight, requiring you to perform the break-in.

Here are his instructions for break-in

The first thing you should do is check the fit of your holster with your unloaded handgun. The holster will probably be tight at first but this is normal. I recommend breaking it in around the house before using it for carry. With your unloaded handgun you can practice drawing and re-holstering to help with break in. You may also place your unloaded handgun in the holster and simply leave it for a few hours.

In some cases, if the holster is extremely tight, you can use the bag the holster came in or a similar style storage bag to help with break in. The bags we ship the holster to you in are 4 mil. and thicker than the standard plastic storage bag therefore these will probably work best. Carefully insert your unloaded handgun into the corner of the bag and then insert the bagged handgun into the holster. It may take anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours but this should stretch the holster a few thousandths of an inch. Periodically check it until the fit and draw feels right to you without the bag.

The holster will also break in to your body and the handgun naturally as you wear and use it.

Please do not put any type of chemical, conditioner, etc. onto the holster to help with break in. Do not crush or flex the holster in trying to break it in as this can cause the holster to loose its shape and ruin it.



I used the bag break-in overnight, and it worked great. The gun is still a bit tight but not overly so. At this time, with a brand new holster, I wouldn't want it any looser.

Also, the belt loops are extremely tight when using my 1/4" thk 1.5" width leather belt. Again, with a brand new holster, I wouldn't want it any other way.

With this delivery, Ryan included a tag from a company called "Hermann Oak Leather Co." Goes on to say "This leather is the finest top-grain leather in the world. Since 1881, tanned in the USA by four generations of the Hermann family".

If you are interested in tooling, here is another holster he made for my Redhawk 45LC/45acp. The leather tooling is done by Ryan's wife Kay.




He quoted 11 weeks, but delivered early ....... 9 1/2 weeks.

I'm glad I've found this place. There are a lot of knowledgeable posters here.

I just placed an order for GS2 in mahogany. The wait is just shy of 3 months. But I'm happy. Until I get it, I have a holster that I'm reasonably sure ought to work.

Thanks, guys, for your input. It did influence my decision to go with a Grizzle GS2. It is a beautiful holster.

BTW, I think that there's far more credibility in comments from those who actually own and have used a product than reviews in gun magazines, which I don't read.

Sauer,
Looks like many of your questions were answered above.DB is right on all accounts. This is my second GS2 holster from Ryan and after the break in period,all is well. Especially if you follow the instructions that come with the holster.Ryan's holsters are good right out of the box and just get to be like a comfortable pair of shoes in short order.
I also received a matching double mag holder as well,just had not unwrapped it for the first photos.It is just as well built and as beautiful as the holster.

Same here, but I guess I am not as strong. Went for the GS2 and a Southern Sidekick in mahogany. Really looking forward to delivery, love those pics.

Have you ever bought something, possibly an impulse buy, and feel remorse? Wish you had thought more before shelling out greenbacks? Trying to figure out a plausible excuse for returning your purchase?

I ain't experienced a scintilla of buyer's remorse emanating from my recent Grizzle GS2 purchase. None. Zip, zero, zilch. Nada. And I ain't gonna see it for pert near 3 months. In fact, I'm thinking about ordering one for my P229.

Grizzle might have the Sig effect. I ain't never felt buyer's remorse arising from buying a Sig.

I've sensed date remorse, especially after one female told me she voted for Obama because having a black president make her feel warm and fuzzy. I had an acute case of date remorse right then. But not with Sig and Grizzle.

SSSSSHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

You guys seriously need to stop...


I have a few of his holsters. If you want them to become way more expensive, with a much longer wait time, keep telling everyone how awesome they are and he will become another Milt Sparks or Mitch Rosen.
