I come from a long line of leather holster artisans. My ancestors began making holsters in Italy over one hundred years ago. When my grandfather brought his family to America, he opened a small holster shop at 270 Lafayette Street in New York City. The business thrived and my father and uncle joined him. It grew into a much larger enterprise than Grandpa ever imagined.
I grew up listening to the men’s shop talk. I loved the shop and spent as much time there as I could. After high school I went to work there. The business kept growing and winning bids on bigger government contracts, resulting in cost-cutting designs, less expensive materials and working in larger volumes at a faster pace. The gorgeous, expensive hides were sacrificed and no one had time for my ideas for a faster, cleaner draw or beautiful new designs.
QUALITY IS GURANTEED
Hello, I recently purchased one of your cobra gun skin classics.The NYPD8 for a S&W M&P Shield.I’ve went thru holster after holster trying to find one that fits comfortable with a firm grip on my weapon and tight to the body.It’s been a year that I’ve been searching and I’ve got to say for a guy that wears a gun 8-10 hours a day this is the holster for me great quality leather thick sturdy and looks great also.So thank u all for ending this lengthy search with a fine quality holster.
I will say to whoever reads this that I don’t write testimonials because in my opinion if you sell a product it should be a good product anyway. That being said, I must say that in the 17 years that I have been carrying concealed I have never had a holster as good as this holsters. The truth is these holsters are just fantastic. They are comfortable where they have to be, sturdy and tough where they have to be, and most of all very durable and kind on the gun if you know what I mean. I have never bought just one kind of holster for every gun that I own ever!…until now. I now own a cobra holster for every gun I own (and I own a lot of guns). In my opinion, there is no better holster out there. Congratulations to the owner of the company for a great product. One more thing I have to say. The customer service of this company is terrific. Also these holsters are made in the USA! Good job to all of you and keep up the good work.
The Carroll Shelby line from Cobra GunSkin has been one of our top selling holster brands to date. The holsters themselves have not only provided great concealment opportunities but also provide comfort that has been difficult to surpass. My everyday carry has been the KR which fits my firearm better than anything else I have experienced while providing a moderate angle for an easy and fast draw. Keep up the good work.
Cobra Gunskin holsters are simply the best made, highest quality holsters available today. I have the a Glock 10mm and both my Cobra Gunskin ankle and belt holsters are AWSOME! The leather quality is OUTSTANDING ! My guns fit these holsters like a glove. Most importantly, the holsters are the safest because their great fit facilitates rapid deployment of your firearm when you need it. If you are going to buy a holster, get a Cobra Gunskin!!!!
I have been a lawfully licensed pistol packer since 1971, holding a NYC Special for business and employment, and now since retiring in 2014, a Florida Concealed Carry Weapons credential. Being open minded over all this time I’ve tried and owned all of your competitors products, some of them having a well thought out and useful feature here and there. But I always preferred your line, for safety, positive retention, quick access, protection of the firearm from wear and tear to the finish, and the elements, including my own body perspiration and garment lint. But I do urge all other good citizens and members of the services to visit the retail gun stores and inspect Cobragunskins, they will find holsters and extra ammunition carriers they can bet their lives on in continuous wear as I have. Best regards, Richard Cossack
I am writing to you to thank you for making me the leather and Kydex hybrid holster for my S+W M+P Pro. As with the holsters you sent me for my S+W Shield and my Kimber Ultra CDP it is comfortable for everyday carry and the draw and re-holstering is smooth and secure!
