Posted this over in another topic, thought I'd include it here for the holster. Most of us in rural law enforcement during the 70's, 80's and 90's had a local saddlemaker friend that would as a favor turn out some pretty decent holsters. Mine was Jack Raspberry of Pawhuska. This belt and holster Jack put together for me in the late 80's.

When I ordered a TLA #5 from Bill Grover I told him to include one of his holsters...A unique design for sure.......

James,

You've about cornered the market on fine and rare leather holsters. I think that's the first TLA holster I've ever seen.

I tried to order a TLA but submitted my order too late. They had just made the decision to stop taking orders when I sent mine in. I keep hoping one will come my way some day.

FANCY "BBQ" RIG, FLORAL CARVED, WITH MATCHING KNIFE SCABBARD, KNIFE OR TOOL POUCH, 44/45 6 ROUND AMMO SLIDES AND HOLSTER, AND GOLD AND SILVER HARDWARE. LEATHER WAS DONE BY LAWMAN TITO PENA, WHO LEARNED THE CRAFT FROM HIS FATHER. KNIFE HAS IVORY MICRATA SCALES. THE REVOLVER IS A S&W MODEL OF 1989 IN 45 COLT, WITH STABILIZED ELK STAG GRIPS WITH S&W MEDALLIONS. THE GOLD AND SILVER BUCKLE, etc. WAS A GIFT FROM A FRIEND BACK WHEN MORTALS COULD AFFORD SUCH THINGS. WORE THIS RIG ON OCASSION AT THE YO HANDGUN HUNTS BUT NOT SINCE (WILL BE REMEDYING THAT SOON). PERFECT RIG TO WEAR IF YOU ARE EVER "SHERIFF FOR A DAY". HOLSTER IS OF "POUCH" DESIGN, i.e. IT WILL ACCOMODATE N-FRAMES, REDHAWKS, BLACKHAWKS AND COLT SAA's WITH UP TO 5 1/2 INCH BARRELS.
