Just received my Ryan Grizzle holster

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

He can make this model holster for most all of full-size Ruger pistols. It will look virtually the same.
He of course also makes holsters for most Ruger guns.

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.

Yeah, including the leather he uses. 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".

Here is another holster he made for my Redhawk 45LC/45acp. The leather tooling is done by Ryan's wife Kay.

Those are absolutely gorgeous holsters!! I've got an Alaskan 44 and a GP 3" fixed revolver that both would do great in one of these holsters. Am I right in the assumption that the first holster is made to be worn in either outside the belt and pants much like any common holster or running the belt on the other side, you'd be able to wear it inside the pants? I guess that you'd also be able to wear it behind the belt, but in front of the pants if there is such a carry option being used? Smithy


P.S. Thanks for the quality pics as well!!

No -- it is purely an OWB holster, due to the double snaps on the front side.
With the loops unsnapped, the open loops allow the belt to go behind and then the loops are brought back to the front and re-snapped.

Ryan makes similar looking IWB holsters as well.

How long did it take to get the holster once you ordered it?

I love the gun. Because of the cost of ammo -- especially the LCs -- I don't shoot it that often. And when I do, it is usually no more than a box of each caliber. Doing that, I don't feel the need to change grips away from the Rosewood. The grips are fine as is, and dang but they are purdy. I've changed the sights to a lollypop configuration with green HiViz in front and a v-notch in the rear.

About 9 1/2 weeks. He was promising 11 weeks, so he was early.
