I just wanted to write and tell you how happy I am with the holster I just received. Immediately I was impressed with the fine workmanship and care taken with the details. I have several holsters for my S&W Performance Center SW1911 from Galco, Gould, DeSantis and others and wasn't satisfied with the way the gun rode so high off the belt. This Alaskan Hunter holster got it right for me. The fit was perfect and the quality of the leather is as good as it gets. The wait was well worth it. Thanks for the great work and I hope to order from you again when I'm able.

I carried my S&W 44 Magnum Model 69 on a trip last fall to
Colorado while summiting Mt Elbert.  (Mt. Elbert is Colorado's
tallest peak standing at 14,400 feet).  We didn't make it back
to the trailhead until after dark.  With Mountain Lions known to
be in the area, Diamond D and the 44 Magnum made for an
excellent companion on this hike.  Thanks for a great product
and craftsmanship!  


Hello!! My name is Robert I have started using your leather gear
on all my lever guns and handguns. You make the highest quality
leather goods I have ever used. I’m from North Georgia USA small
town called Ellijay or Gilmer county. I recommend all of your
leather gear to my friends. I probably stay in the woods hunting
more in the winter time than I do at home!! I figured I would
send a pic for your website if you wanted to use it or a
testimonial or something that’s fine with me!! Love your leather
work thank you!!

" I ordered the Diamond D Chest Holster prior to opening day of
deer season here in Michigan for my 6" .357 Colt King Cobra. I have a saying, " You don't put a 1000.00 gun in a 10.00 holster" I'm serious about my gear. And I'm hard on it. It's absolutely
imperative that it performs. I do the research and read every review that I can get my hands
on before I buy. Save yourself the time people. You will NOT be disappointed. I've worked in the outdoor industry for going on 19 years and
have hands on experience with many, many custom leather guys.
If your like me, you probably have a box full of holsters that
didn't make the cut after receiving them. Disappointing AND expensive. Those days are over. Diamond D is now my " go to " for ANY holster I may need. The quality of their work is not only pleasing to the eye, but
EXTREMELY rugged. I put mine thru the paces and it passed with
flying colors, exceeding my expectations. These folks are very personable as well and the customer service
is top tier. I ordered a little late in the game and didn't expect to receive
my rig until after season was over. Custom rigs take time and
attention to detail to produce, so I knew I'd probably not have
it in time for hunting season. Wrong. Not only did I have it before season, I received it with plenty
of time to spare. OUTSTANDING !! The rig fit my weapon perfectly. I could find no fault in any of the design, craftsmanship or fit
and function. It's literally everything I've been searching for
in not only a high end holster, but the excellent and personal
customer care that I expect to come with it. Buy with confidence. Diamond D is rugged and reliable. In fact, if you order from Diamond D Custom and are not satisfied
with your purchase, if I have a weapon that will fit, get a hold
of me. I'll buy it from you. Trust is earned, not acquired and Diamond D Custom has defiantly
earned mine. Tom R. Michigan

I received my new holster yesterday for glock 17 9mm
It's perfect, I love the brown color the fit is perfect.
The quality is excellent. 
Thank you

"God sent me to earth to destroy as many sporting goods as humanly possible & I am proud to report that I have succeeded madly!! For the most part I hunt/fish/trap/shoot/xplore year round for the last 40+ years & have learned what works & what doesn't. Here's a Ted Tested Ted Abused Ted Approved hunting pistol rig that is the royal catsAss!! Check em out. I use this killer Diamond D Custom Leather Guide's Choice Chest Holster when carrying my killer Glock 40 xtended 10mm for optimal access. Love the bitch! Mike Barrett & team up there in God's country AK are the best!! Git ya some!!"

I ordered this holster on April 17 and received it on May 20. Much quicker than I expected. I am completely impressed with the craftsmanship in this product. My 6.3" Dan Wesson Bruin 10mm fits perfectly in this holster and the optional magazine holder fits great also. This holster is well worth the money and the wait. Everyone that I've shown it to has been impressed with the quality. I also ordered 2 ornamental moose for gifts and a mantle moose for myself. They are also high quality. Thank You for these wonderful products and I will be telling everyone about your great company.
Thanks again,
Cliff G


My son and I camping. This holster has made a huge difference for me being in a wheelchair. I also get lots of compliments on the rig.


What an amazing piece of craftsmanship... upon unboxing I could tell that a master at Leatherworks made this... as bulky and heavy my Ruger super Alaskan 454 is... this cheat rig makes it effortless to carry and quick to access if I need it. This will last my lifetime and beyond. Thank you!!!

Received new SSR the other day, great product, great fit and I'm a Really big guy. Pistol fits holster snug magazines fit snug so I worked the pistol and mags to loosen up the leather. I will be sure to enjoy this product for years to come.

 Just received the holster. Arrived when promised, perfect fit, excellent workmanship, very satisfied, thank you craftman R Johnston.

Got all of my order and the work is beautiful. I have to go walk a few miles and get it adjusted for me but just "as is" the fit is good and operation for everything is hands free with that gun right under my right hand but totally out of the way. Great design and execution! Thanks for the advice and help!

Excellent holster for hunting

Purchased for Ruger Redhawk 44 mag...excellent holster for hunting.

Guides choice

Best I’ve ever had or even heard about! Absolutely recommend to everyone needing a quality holster.


I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know how impressed I am with my new holster
1. It's beautiful
2. It smells and feels great! :-)
3. It projects quality. Extremely well made.
4. Easy to adjust and fit
5. It secures my New Ruger Vaquero like a rock
6. It's super comfortable
A few months ago I bought an expensive chest leather holster made by a competitor. Ended up giving it to a friend who is still trying to make it work. My Vaquero fit perfectly in my Diamond D holster from the git go.
Congratulations on making such great product in America. I can assure that I will pass the word.
All the best,
Rey M

Hi, the more I use these holsters the better they get. There is not a more comfortable or user friendly holster on the market! That’s a good feeling when solo-hiking in back country with dangerous game especially when not hunting. I’m also return customer for the same style holster I use for hunting but with a different firearm.

Thank you, Mike T.

I don't believe you could do business with as good a company as diamond d leather anywhere in this country. To explain; I'd been shopping for a holster for a S & W 460 on the Internet for a while and couldn't make up my mind. Well fate decided for me when my gun broke and was sent in for repairs, meaning I'd not get it back in time for my moose hunt in Alaska. On the first day of my drive to glenallen, I was notified my gun would be repaired and mailed within 24 hours. Having decided on diamond d, I called and they were able, in short order, to send me my holster to Tok, Alaska in time for my arrival and hunt opening day. The holster was PERFECT, and quality is second to none. I also ordered the five round cartridge holder. Initially, the gun fit pretty tight but I'd read somewhere about putting a plastic bag over the gun and holstering it for a few days, which seemed to work or, my constant working the gun in and out of the holster loosened things up. I'm a fairly large person and weigh 245 pounds and had plenty of adjustment in all the straps. Should probably trim them now I have time. Diamond d custom leather should be your one stop shop for a holster.
I recently received my new holster for my Springfeild TRP Operator in 10mm caliber.  I was more than pleased with the quality of this new holster and the fit and finish was perfect. Please pass on to your craftsman my thanks for their workmanship that went in to making this fine belt holster that I am sure will last a lifetime and will be something that will be passed down in coming years to my son. Also my special thanks to Taylor who promptly answered all my email queries without fail
 Once again thanks for turning out such a grest product and I am sure I will be ordering more leather items from you guys in the future.

I ordered your Guides Choice holster for my S&W Model 69 with 4 1/4” barrel. The holster arrived in time for my elk hunt in Wyoming. After wearing the holster in the field I have to say that I am beyond pleased with its performance and craftsmanship. Thank you
I recently ordered your Guide's Choice Leather Holster.  I was a bit apprehensive about the cost, but I wanted the best.  I have to say, that is exactly what I received! The quality and craftsmanship that you all put into these holsters is second to none! This holster fits my S&W 500 PERFECTLY! The amount of adjustment throughout the entire rig will easily allow me to wear it with or without my full hunting/winter gear.  I was also prepared to wait ten weeks for this holster to arrive. I completely understood that producing a quality leather product takes time, especially as demand increases.  I was pleasantly surprised when it only took around ten days to get to my doorstep!  That is impressive!  In the future, any holster that I need will be purchased through your company without hesitation!
Thank you very much,

This is the most awesome holster
I have ever owned Thankyou 
It was worth the wait.

I just received my shipment. First, I can't Express how incredibly happy I am with your products. I am a returning customer and due to the satisfactory experience with my first product, I ordered these products in this shipment. Although I was skeptical about how long it took from order placement to receiving the products, the wait is well worth every minute.
Second, the fit, finish and look of both products are simply one of a kind. I took my rifle to the shooting range sporting my new sling and cuff and received dozens of compliments on how they really made the rifle a beautiful hunting rig with personality. 
I can't thank you enough for the awesome products. Well worth the price and wait! I am referring everyone to your website!
Many thanks,
Arte L
There is no substitute for having your back up weapon accessible when you may need it. Thanks for making a great durable product that is second to none.

Awesome sling and butt cuff on my 45-70 bear slayer. 
Great products!

I just wanted to say, thank you soooo much! Drove up to your
shop from Anchorage this past Saturday and had the good fortune
to speak with Mike. I was in the market for another belt as I
have lost a good amount of weight since I purchased my belt from
you good folks back in 2013 at the Sportsman's Show. The belt
had so much extra leather hanging down at this point that I was
tucking it into my front pocket. I was shocked (in a good way)
to learn that if you lose weight, Diamond D replaces the belt
for FREE!!! WOW! If that's not incentive to lose weight, I don't
know what is! Mike also helped re-adjust my Guide Holster (also
purchased at the '13 Sportsman's Show) for my XD-40 and gave me
some additional instructions on its use and versatility.

These are hands-down the most honest and sincere folks you could
ever hope to meet and their leather goods are second to none in
quality and appearance.

Thank you, again!

Dear Sir or Madam, I recently ordered and just received one of your Guide's Choice
Leather Chest Holsters, Inv#10796. As you state on your site, a great product takes time. It took
about six weeks to receive this great holster.....well worth the
wait. I have to say that I am truly impressed with the
workmanship fit, finish and quality of the rig. It is a beauty,
that I will be proud to to wear and use when I am trekking out
in the wilds, whether it be the Olympic peninsula rainforest, or
in the Cascades. I have some friends that I suspect will be
contacting you with holster orders of their own. Thank you for a great holster. Bruno P

Received shipment Saturday the 19th of May. I must say at this time after receiving the custom order I am
impressed, Very impressed. Thank you so much for the work of art
you created for me, the attention to detail is fantastic the
design and craftsmanship are second to none, worth every penny. May I also add at this time, from the first time I found your

D Leather people on the phone I was impressed. It doesn't stop
there, this was the best shopping/order experience I have had in
a long time. I can not say enough good about your company and

Leather broken down. Website A+ Phone Order A+ Process time A+ Shipping A+ Product A+++ Communication A+ I'm telling everyone about Diamond D Leather and the people that

holster in black. Looking forward to doing business Thanks again, Rich H
Hi. I want to write a post on your web site so all can see. I AM VERY IMPRESSED WITH YOUR WORKMANSHIP AND SHIPPING. My name is Ted from the other side of the country Connecticut. My order # 10834 can not believe how fast it got to me. The woman I spoke to who took my order was very pleasant and helped me through every detail. The holster fits my Tauras 444 PERFECTLY.  THANK YOU DIAMOND D FOR A PRODUCT WELL MADE IN THE U.S.A.

God Bless you Guys!
It is rare in this postmodern world to find People whose 
products exceed expectations. My new Pancake holster did just
that. You go over the top to make sure it fits perfectly as well
as constructed with impeccable craftsmanship. Thank you for
being who you are! I will never go anywhere else. Joe C
Hi  Diamond D ,
  Received my new chest holster today.  That was very fast delivery !   My 1911 10 mm long slide pistol fits perfectly.  I love the beautiful leather too. This will serve my needs well for hunting and fishing. Nicely done !
  Thank you very much !
   Larry W.


wow.  just wow.  This holster is a work of art.  Solid, perfect fit, and the finest workmanship I have ever seen, including some very high end saddles.  Thank you very much for my new favorite holster.

Nerd W.

Thank you , it's like Christmas every time I receive your package in the mail , I'm never disappointed.  I love all of the holsters of yours I have and I have several of them.  Thank you Diamond D .

I just wanted to thank you for the very fast shipping and the excellent quality of the belt. I needed the belt for work and it turned out even better than I expected.
I have purchased items from your business before and I am a very happy customer. In the near future I will be placing an order for a holster and magazine older again.
Once again thank you very much for the great products and I am certainly pass this on to my co-workers. 
Note: I live and work in Georgia now and on at least three occasions clients have mentioned how nice the belt was!


I received the holster today and I am very pleased, fits like a glove and looks fantastic.

The wait and cost are well worth it for this quality holster.


Thank You,



I received my order today and already have everything on my rifle. The quality is very high and I’m impressed. Below is a picture (not the best)...perfect fit. Thanks again!

WOW!  This is the finest leather craftsmanship I have ever seen.  The fit and finish of this holster for this specialty firearm surpasses my expectations.  
Thank you!

I purchased a chest holster from you about a year and a half ago
and just wanted you to know that this is one fine holster! It's
built strong, the finish is great, and I like the fact that you
built the inside of the holster with the same leather you use
on the outside to keep dirt from getting into the gun.Thanks
for being customer and quality oriented. Keep up the good work!
Hello! Just to let you know how much I appreciate the 5 star service and the holster is beautiful! I carry a S&W Model 19-4,357 Magnum in a 4.2" barrel. All set to go with an El Paso Saddlery product,but,their customer service was asleep. Your rep Taylor was perfect!!! No problems and questions answered. Your service nailed the purchase for me! The holster arrived sooner than expected. I had no holstering issues right out of the bag. Weapon fit great and holstered with no problems!!! No in and out break in. I hike and prospect in the mountains of Colorado and was looking for a holster that carries like this. Not in the way of my US Army Mountain Ruck. Wanted the holster to be ready on the severe angle ascents. This holster fits great ,feels great,and does everything I want and need!!! Customer for life!!! Thanks!!!
I received my holster today on the usps mail, Oder # 9116 I'm impressed with the speed of the manufacturing quality & speed of shipping of it, you get 5 stars.
I had to move the leather strap one notch to make it a better fit, the gun & the magazine fitted perfectly, a little tight the first try, after 15 tries, it fitted like a glove.
I'm very happy & satisfied with your service & product, tomorrow I'll look up your website to make a good commentary complement.

I received my Guide's Choice a few days ago. It is one of the finest products I have ever purchased. The craftsmanship is outstanding. Thank you for making such a high quality product!
Thomas P.
Received above order a few days ago. The quality and workmanship is superb. Diamond leather is one of the best out there.
Thank you for a great holster and belt. I look forward to ordering more in 2018.
The 10mm Glock G40 10mm with Trijicon RMR sight holster was done a few months ago.  The Ruger Super Redhawk 454 Casull with Trijicon RMR Red dot was just received.  AGAIN, you guys have knocked the holsters WAAAAY out of the park with quality and attention to detail.  The cuts for the dots were spot on the money.  THANKS and please pass this on to the guys who made them.
Paul H.
I received the chest holster ordered from your The quality and fit exceeded my expectations. This will be a valued addition to the gear I use trekking the Adirondack Mountains here in upstate New York. Thank you for the attention to detail and superior craftsmanship. Ed S
Folks, got the holster in the mail today and all I can say is WOW!  You guys nailed it!  A beautifully made product, and a custom fit for my SIG P220 Match Elite 10mm w/5" barrel (and for a south paw).  Want to thank you for your prompt service and for making such a fabulous, high quality product; by far, my best holster.  I look forward to many years of use carrying one of my favorite sidearms.  My only regret is that I didn't find Diamond D Custom sooner.  I'll be sure to spread the word.  Thanks again, all the best.  H. Dinter
One of your holsters already saved my life. The chest rig works great for kayaking and I was wearing one when upon arriving back at a remote someone attemted to rob me. The distance at first was such that I suggested he leave. After being informed that I would be handing over my money I opted to unzip my jacket and negotiate a more satisfactory outcome for myself. The presense of my pistol was all that was required to solicit a set of raised hands and the words " I'm done"  from the bad guy.
He left unharmed and so did I.
The Alaska Hunter holster for the Glock G40 with MOS arrived today. Perfect fit and outstanding craftsmanship.
I wanted to tell you how happy I am with the fitment of my new holster.  Your company really has stood out with outstanding service and product.  I could not be happier.
Thank you for a great holster.  I will continue to place orders with Diamond Custom Leather.
Thank you,
John W A
This chest holster is more than I expected. First, I didn’t expect to see this holster for 8-10 weeks. I ordered it Monday. Second, it fits perfectly. Very comfortable and it holds my 7.5 inch Redhawk securely. I build furniture for a living and my tolerance expectations are very tight. Thus, I recognize quality when I see it. The quality of your product is fantastic. 
Thank you for being so prompt and I will be sending you guys some business. 
Chris F
Received rifle sling for my and rifle cuff for my 280 caliber.
Excellent QUALITY and workmanship.Will be ordering other 
items in the near future.Thanks for a job well done! T. G. McDowell

I received my holster after much debate about ordering something
I hadn't seen. The price was high and I had no idea of the
quality of leather you used. When the holster arrived it fit
perfect and the leather was top quality. I'm in Florida so our
weather is hard on leather products. I've used it for about
five months now in the heat, rain, and a little near salt water.
It is amazing and already outlived two other holsters I had. I
don't usually write about a product but this one is top quality.
If I decide to order another holster I would not look anywhere
but with you. Mike L.

I wanted to pass on my compliments! I received my chest rig on Saturday.  What great turn around!! And what a great piece of craftsmanship! 
Thank you!
David O.
y'all did a great job, really like the sling... will order all 
my leather needs from you hence forth..

Just rec'd. my order...worth the money, worth the wait!
Michael S.
I received the holster yesterday and I was very impressed with 
the quality. Well worth the wait. I expect that I will get
many years of service out of it. Thank you very much.

Hello, I just received the order I placed, of the Guide's
Choice leather holster. When I unpacked the box I have to say,
I was REALLY impressed with the quality of the materials used,
and the craftsmanship of how it was put together. The fit to my
S&W 629 Classic DX was perfect. I also couldn't believe how
fast it arrived to My home in Tennessee either! Just wanted to
say thanks. It's getting hard to find companies that sell what
they advertise these days. I would highly recommend your product
to anyone.   Joe K

I’ve meant to thank you for the quality product and great service.

Here’s a couple of pics from a recent Caribou trip in the Brooks Range.

Again, Thanks!

 Guide's Choice Chest Holster

Rifle Sling and Rifle Butt Stock Ammo Holder Cuff
After months of searching I thought finding a suitable holster
for my Glock 40 MOS was going to be impossible. However; I
finally came across Diamond D Custom leather. They offered a
hip holster custom made to fit my pistol. I ordered one with
the drop loop and double mag holder. In a little over 6 weeks
I received a holster that gave me perfect fit, with perfect
retention, amazing workmanship, and did not interfere with my
red dot sight. Diamond D you now have a customer for life. I
can't thank you enough. My money could not have been better
spent! Delighted Doyle Y. Woodbridge, Va.
I received the order and I must say a very nice piece of 
craftsmanship I will have it with me when I get to Alaska
this year for my annual moose hunt thanks again

I received my Guide's Choice™ Leather Chest Holster in the
mail the other day. The holster is very comfortable, with a
snug fit for my G40. Quality product and service. Thank You!
Excellent quality , fit and finish at a reasonable price.
Will definitely use your service again if I need products like this.
Paul M
Hello, Holster arrived. It is the best holster I've owned in 40 years. Perfect. My compliments to all of you. Thanks.
I recently received my Guides Choice™ leather chest holster for my Sig 1911.  I was cautious at first about dropping some big bills for the holster, but I now realize it is worth every penny!  I read a lot of the reviews and was very impressed, then I read what "The Detroit City Mad Man" (Ted Nugent) wrote and was convinced.  I wanted the holster for ATV riding, and after having it on for a 100 mile ride, I was even more impressed.  The quality workmanship in the holster was TOP DRAWER!  It is really true what the reviews say, you can hardly notice your wearing it! 
Just wanted to thank you for your workmanship. My firearm fits so well it only took a few hours to break in , so refreshing to be able to draw and reholster without any hang ups . I could go on about the stiching etc .And the retention is perfect. You know how tricky that can be with a 45 auto. Thank You Again Sincerely Joe B
Received the holster today and i could not be happier. it fits all of my guns perfectly ! more important though, it fits me perfectly !
i'm a small guy and i have finally found a chest/shoulder holster that actually fits and is comfortable. i plan to wear it a little lower nearer the belt in a cross draw style. i think i may order 1 or 2 reloads.
thanks again for the great service        
Just wanted to say thx for the great products, my 
Guide's choice fits my S&W 69 perfectly, just to
pass on to other S&W 69 owners, the 6 round .357
speedloader pouch with the 5J speedloader is what
you need.

Received my Guide's Choice holster today (Order #5481). Absolutely
superb. Freedom Arms revolver fits like a glove. Workmanship is
simply outstanding. Just wanted to thank you for a great product.

Thanks for making a high end quality product, and making it in the USA!

THANK YOU !  My holster arrived today (the 19th) as promised and the shipment tracking info that you supplied was spot on accurate. 
THE HOLSTER IS A UTILITARIAN WORK OF ART and my Glock 19 fits into it perfectly - I can’t wait to show it off at the range.  Based on what I see I will be ordering more products from you soon. 
Thanks again,
I received my order today, June 3rd, 2017, the two items I got were the Guides Choice leather chest holster and the Natural oil belt 1 3/4" with kydex. I just wanted to let you know what you know already, the fit, finish, quality and skill put into each of them is absolutely above and beyond he capabilities of most others. My next order will be a pair of pancake holsters, they are the sexiest on the market to date! Thank you to those craftsmen/craftswomen who make the products and thanks to the ladies up front who answer the phones. They took my order, explained every detail and what to expect pertaining to lead times. They are very pleasant, knowledgeable and especially helpful. RAISES FOR EVERYONE!! Thank You, Shane A
The holster y'all made for me (Order #4754) arrived in this mornings
mail and I just wanted to tell y'all that I'm very pleased with it.
Please tell Mr. Johnston for me that he does excellent work. :-)

I wasn't sure about an IWB for a full size 9mm, but this holster is very
comfortable and easy to wear as I found out during a 4 hour shopping
trip with my wife this morning. ;-)

I'll probably be doing some more business with you in the future.

Thank you very much,

I just received my new holster. Finally I have a holster to carry my desert eagle 44. The best gun in the world can be a burden unless you have a good way to transport it when it not in use. I love my new holster, fits me perfect. Fits the gun like a glove. The perfect holster for an oversized gun and puts it in  the perfect location for a quick draw for that Oh S%&T situation. Thanks again.
Linda B.
         I received my order and couldn't be more pleased with the fine craftsmanship.
Thank you again
Just received my holster. First the fit is perfect! Over workmanship is outstanding. Very pleased.

You must be the best sort of people at Diamond D Custom Leather.
I must state that every step taken in the ordering and altering
phases of getting my Guide's Choice holster has been a pleasure.
Everytime I have called, I have heard a cheerful and enthusiastic
voice at the other end offering to help. But the most satisfying experience has got to be getting the
holster and basketweave black leather belt in the mail. Both
products are of the best quality and design. I had a friend help
me adjust the Guide's Choice leather holster to my frame. And I
wore the belt, in place of my normal dress belt, and could not
be more pleased. I will be making plans to purchase all my
leather-based products from your fine establishment. And will be
sure and share my experience with all my shooting enthusiast
friends. May God Bless and Keep You All, Amen

The sling and butt cuff arrived this afternoon. They are beautiful and the craftsmanship is perfect. I will put them on my Henry H010 .45-70 Govt. and send a pic soon.
Best wishes and be safe,

Under promised , over delivered!! I am very impressed!!!! 
Thank you

I received my order (4273) Monday for a S&W Governor holster and drop loop.  I was really impressed by the quality of both items.  The holster was a fit immediately and did not require a break-in.  The stitching and dyeing were perfect.  Great Job!!!

My name is Brandon. I would just like to thank you for the rifle sling and butt cuff and commend you on your craftsmanship. I ordered the sling and cuff to put on a rifle that had been handed down to me from my father. He got it from his father. It has seen 3 generations and each of us have killed deer with it. My Dad passed away this past February 28th and that is what prompted me to buy the sling and cuff. With those 2 seemingly simple pieces of leather, a gun that is very special to me is now even more special. 
Thank You,
Brandon M
Excellent holster. Fits perfectly.  Thanks.
Dear Diamond D,
I wanted to let you guys know that I have received my Alaska Hunter HH for my Glock 23 today and I am loving it. Thank you very much. I have looked for so long for leather holsters that I would be happy with and I could not be happier. I will be getting a couple more soon, one for my Sig P938 and one for my Ruger GP100. Again Thank You very much.
Sincerely One Happy Customer,
Martin K
I want to thank you for helping me find the right holster.  It arrived today and fit perfectly.  I appreciate your working with me to find a holster for a gun that was new to you.  
Will carry it on my visits to Alaska but really bought it so I could have a gun while working here in Florida for hogs.  They are a greater threat here than bears.  I've had two friends torn up by hogs in the last couple of years.  Hard to carry a gun and work in the woods.

I just read an advance copy of an article by Bob Mallard scheduled to run in The Maine Sportsman entitled "Arming for Bear Protection". The article highly recommended the Guide’s Choice Leather Chest Holster by Diamond D Leather.
I am a former Maine Game Warden, licensed Maine Guide, avid outdoorswoman and gun enthusiast. I enjoy fly fishing and hunting in remote places, and most of my outdoor adventures take me way up into the backcountry, often on multi-day solo excursions. I used to carry a .357 magnum revolver in a hip holster, but I have recently upgraded to a .44 magnum Ruger Redhawk for personal protection in the backcountry after having several very close encounters with bears. Although I have only had to draw my gun once on a bear -- and luckily that particular northwestern Montana griz backed down and I did not have to shoot -- this encounter made me realize that I needed a gun with more firepower and a method of carry that was more readily accessible. Now I have the gun, but I have been searching for the perfect holster.
I am a small-framed person and it is not comfortable or practical to carry a large revolver like the .44 mag on my hip. A conventional hip holster is also not feasible with a backpack, daypack, fanny pack or fishing vest. The Diamond D Guide's Choice Chest Holster is a perfect solution because the gun is held high and in front where it is easy to access; the holster itself is out of the way of my backpack and shoulder straps; and it can be worn with a vest, backpack or fannypack. 
As you well know, having high quality gear that is functional, comfortable and practical is an important component of being prepared. I have been looking for the perfect product and after reading Mr. Mallard's article, I believe my search has now ended. I am planning to purchase the Guide's Choice Leather Chest Holster by Diamond D with the reload strip. 
Thanks for producing such a high quality product.

I received my rig today, and it is a beautiful thing !!, as expected it is a work of art....... My firearm is tight, but it is expected as the leather takes some time to work in.
Thank you to all that made this, and handled it, and shipped it has been a pleasure to purchase this holster from Diamond D Leather.
All aspects of my experience were wonderful.
I belong to a rod & gun club here in New Hampshire, and a lot of people will see it, and I will tell them where I got it, and how they can to get one from Diamond D Leather..!

Hello I recently bought my Super Blackhawk Exclusive .44 Magnum and found out about your Holsters you make here in Alaska, so did my research and watched my share of youtube videos on your Holsters :) I spoke to one of your rep and she was great Customer Service! Sorry i forgot her name started with a T "Taylor"? anyways she was fantastic. Thank you for having great staff along with your high quality of product! I received my holster within Days i live here in Sitka Alaska. I opened it up excited and slipped my New Revolver into the holster and WOW fit amazing like a perfect Glove. looked at all the threading on my holster and flawless! the Leather on it is Phenomenal a perfect 10 on all aspects on what you all do thanks again :) HAPPY CUSTOMER!!!

I received my chest rig holster the other day. This is my second
chest rig I have purchased from you. As usual the craftsmanship,
fit and finish are outstanding! Your design is so much better
than any other I have tried in the past. You folks make a first
rate product. Thank You! David

Looks and fits great! Can't wait to take it into the field.
Thank you for your fine work.

Thank you so much! I will be here all day for the delivery.
I truly love the Diamond D Guide holster I bought from Cabelas
and I know it will be the same with this new holster direct from
the source. I'm 65 with bad knees and having two hands free in
case I fall makes a difference; just as importantly, having easy
access to the weapon where I hunt is paramount to success. 
May God bless your hearts!

The  holster  arrived  in 3 days.  The  holster fit  the  
Taurus 82 perfectly
. and it is a product  of outstanding quality.
I was particularly impressed with  the "double headed"  screws
that secured the strap adjustment.
Bill C.

Received it today very pleased with the workmanship and fit
thank you very much. Truly satisfied    Wendell B

I can't thank you people enough for putting the extra snap on
my S&W 500 Mag speed loader pouch. It works great with the longer
Barnes bullets. Both the Guide's Choice holster & speed loader
pouch are great, high quality products! I can't imagine trying
to carrying this weapon in any other type of holster.
Gene A.
Thank you for a quality holster that will last a lifetime, im sure.
I am very pleased with it.
Brg Anders B.

Your holsters are absolutely impeccable.
The quality of workmanship is unequaled in the industry.
I have never holstered my Anaconda because I could never find
a holster that I was comfortable putting it in...until now!
Anyhow, thanks for all the hard work you do to produce such a
fine product!

Diamond D

I received the holster for my Smith M&P. It fits perfectly. The workmanship is great. It was worth the wait. Thanks
The holster arrived today.  It's beautiful and the
fit is perfect.  Thank you.
Diamond D,
My usual and customary practice is I talk too much. Receipt of the two
Guide' Choice holsters has left me almost speechless. Many years have
passed since I was as excited or as pleased with a purchase right out of
the box as I am with my new rig. The Herman Oak leather is superb. The
craftsmanship displayed in the making of the holsters is a complement to
the leather used. Sitting here "strapped up" is a pleasure, my Vaquero is
safely tucked away, yet convenient should I need it. The gun, while heavy
feels much lighter given the design and fit of the carrier. I live and
work on a farm shared by rattle snakes, wild hogs, and gun is
one of the many tools I have at hand to insure I get my work done. My fine
new Guide Holster will save much energy by the weight distribution, help
me stay safe, provide another teaching/learning opportunity for my 13yo
grandson, and give me added pleasure as I work at being a good steward of
our patch of land.

Please give my regards and thanks to Mr. Johnston, Maker, for making my
holsters. I look forward to receiving updates on new products. I hope
Diamond D continues to grow and prosper, but leave the caveat of guarding
against increasing production at the expense of high quality.

Now that's a gun belt! 
I ordered this as a replacement for the Smith & Wesson branded belt that would not fit their matching holster in the cross draw configuration, even though both were made specifically for the Performance Center model 627. To say I was unimpressed is an understatement. With the black hardware option, your belt not only matches their holster better, but allows me to use it in the cross draw position.
As a note we do make a cross draw holster, our Alaska Hunter Hip Holster, that works great as a cross draw paired nicely with our belt.
Just got my Guides Choice for my S/W 686. 
LOVE IT! This is the holster I've been looking for.
Thanks for a great product and great customer service.
Phil W.

I am in receipt of my new holster. I am very pleased with this entire transaction. I own at least 20 holsters and I will say that my new holster is a beauty and will not sit in a drawer. Great product, great service.

Thank you,
