It's this level of attention to customer detail that sets Michael's Custom Holsters
above and beyond other companies. The specifications I laid out for this guy were so demanding that I felt like I was Count Rugen to his Domingo Montoya. My holster had to, among other things:
- Fit both inside the waistband for concealed carry, but also fit on a belt for open carry
- Be comfortable during hot & sticky Florida summers
- Allow me to wear and draw from a car seat
- Work with sweatpants, since I wear them a lot at home
- Look pretty but not be especially frou-frou girly
- Be tough so that the design wouldn't rub off from being inside jeans
- Oh, and it had to have this picture on it:
Now I realize many of you are saying "Oh god, why did you have to put a My Little Pony on it?" and my answer is "Because fuck you, that's why." I like ponies, I wanted on my holster, and now I have one.
Plus, Luna has twin TAR-21s and crazy eyes. That's just awesome.
Anyway, I'd like to state that this holster is amazing. Michael did an incredible job of fulfilling my impossible and sometimes contradictory demands. He kept me apprised of the project's progress every step of the way, asking me how I liked it, and letting me make suggestions. I thought for sure I was going to be his most annoying customer when his first dye job ended up a little too pink for my tastes. I wasn't happy with it but I didn't feel right saying "Nope, hate it, start over."
Guess what? He decided that he didn't like it, either, and started over anyway. And the second time around it came out looking incredible.

You guys, not only is this holster beautiful, it is incredibly comfortable, both IWB and OWB. It holds my pistol securely yet allows for a smooth draw. It does exactly what I want it to do and the only way it could possibly be better would require violating the laws of 3-dimensional physics.

Oh, and did I mention that this holster is guaranteed for life? Because it is.
In conclusion, I wholeheartedly endorse Michael's Custom Holsters. His quality, attention to detail, and level of customer service are all top notch. I encourage all gunnies to buy a holster from him, and hasten to point out to my fellow Bronies that he does non-holster leatherwork as well. (Also, he and his wife are fans of the show as well, so we'd be supporting members of the herd.)
