Custom Leather Holsters By Earl Southard


​​August 2018: Current Updates and Information. 

I’m Earl Southard, owner/operator of Trailmaster Holsters. Thanks for visiting my website.  I hope you find my site interesting and easy to navigate.    Please don't hesitate to give me a call at 1-406-467-2884 or drop me an email at if you have any questions. 

Since I maintain this website along with building and designing all of the holsters you see here, this site is a continual work in progress.  Keep checking back to see if we’ve added any new holster lines or products.  Once again, thanks for considering Trailmaster Holsters!   

 The following is a list of firearms I design and build holsters for:   Ruger’s Redhawk, Super Redhawk, Super Blackhawk, SP 101 and GP 100 revolvers.   I also make holsters for Smith & Wesson’s  N-Frames and X-Frames.   

​2 August 2018:  Lots of recent updates!  First, I just got back from helping a group of about 18 LDS young women (YW) on a backpacking trip through the Little Belt Mountains in Montana for three days and two nights.  Wow, what an exceptional group of YW.  They exhibited some of the best behavior of young people that I’ve seen in a long time.  They were helpful to each other, they never complained, they kept clean camps, they were organized and took the initiative to lead.  One of the YW even fried up some antelope steak, that she had killed the year before, and shared it with her tent group.  Another YW has killed more big game animals than many other hunters I know!  Even the YW who had never backpacked or been outdoors much did exceptional!  I was more than impressed.   I salute them as well as their parents who are doing an awesome job of raising wonderful young Americans with especially high moral standards.  How refreshing!  Oh, yea…I wore my Trailmaster Rig on the entire trip, as I do on each of my backpacking trips, and it performed exceptional…again.  I think I have over 600 plus miles on that rig…

As for me, preparation for and the execution of the volunteer work has placed me behind on orders.  That is the bad news.  The good news is it is full speed ahead on making holsters!  Backpacking and holster testing season are over for me, so I’ll be in the shop for about 12-14 hours a day!  Call at your convenience to have any questions answered or place an order

Many thanks for my great customers and their patience waiting for their leather products.   Due to a recent rush of new orders, completion dates are now into September, without a rush fee.   If you need your leather before this fall’s hunting season, please give me a call soon so I can get you on the books in advance. 

Finally, many thanks to the best customers in the world, Trailmaster Holsters’ customers!   I enjoy talking with you on the phone as much as I enjoy making your holsters!  I hope everyone enjoys summer and here at Trailmaster Holsters, our prayers are with those who are in the path of the devastating fires ravaging our land.
