As a leather craftsman specializing in authentic reproductions of frontier gunleather, I consider Packing Iron to be a must-have -- the bible of holsters and cartridge belts. The pictures show great detail and the text reveals the significant history of the development and the impact of various holster designs. It's my #1 reference material.

One of the most visually spectacular books on the old west I have read. Each and every photograph is of the highest quality, none are equal! You can almost smell the aroma of freshly tanned leather as you page though this story of old west leather work. Reading this book takes you back to the days when all men carried a sixshooter on their hips and gun fights in the town square settled disputes. Also explained in detail the evolution of gun leather and how functional it became, along with how it became a work of art a owner could wear with pride, most certanly also a statis symbol. A book not only a old west buff would enjoy but anyone with a love of leather work and its artistry.

This is undoubtedly the most comprehensive book on old Western gun leather with details of their manufacture. Beautiful full plate colour pictures of the gun leather & in many cases, the accompanying pistols used during the many historical periods of the USA's formative years. This book will be treasured by anyone fortunate enough to own a copy. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
