    Disclaimer: I hope it’s okay to post screenshots from FB here. There’s apparently not a website up for these products just yet (but it’s coming) and wanted to spread some good news.

    The Milt Sparks Leather page advertised today that Erik Little of Rafter-L Combat Leather is reviving some of Bruce Nelson’s original holster patterns, with the full support of Mr. Nelson’s widow. Looks like some mighty nice leather coming down the line soon. If you’re a Face-booker, check ‘em out.

    They appear to be of the highest quality, I need to see more.

    Rafter-L (Erik Little’s) leather is some of the best, but it’ll be a long wait for sure. I’m 9 months in on my current order. This tells me I’m gonna have to wait even longer - as this project will probably get pushed to the front. Lol

    It's not getting pushed to the front. "This project is a passion and will come secondary to my Rafter-L holsters and thus be done in my spare time for fun."

    This is great news! I had an old catalog from Bruce from the early 90’s (right when he introduced the Patriot model). Always wanted to get a number 1 professional model rig but I was just a little too late.

    Yes, I would like to place an order but just not sure where.... I’m following them in IG and it looks like there is leather in the works and completed (shown at SHOT).

    Now almost a year after my original post above on this topic I recently caught a social media post from Jason Burton at Heirloom Precision indicating that he had a batch of Bruce Nelson Combat Leather Summer Specials available - I called, and it arrived today. Break-in began almost immediately!

    I’ve worn the holster all-day and it’s right on the money. The fact that it happens to be the continuation of a gunleather legacy only makes it sweeter.

    According to maker Erik Little, BNCL products will be sold only through Heirloom Precision, Milt Sparks, and Wilson Combat.
