Hello, I’m Uncle George and I am a retiree from the University of Texas at Austin, I’m 68 years old and have been a resident of Austin for 42 years and have been producing these holsters for 9 years now.
Some years ago on October 19, 1991 a 35 year-old man from nearby Belton, Texas drove his pickup truck through a window at a Luby’s Cafeteria in Killeen, Texas. He then for the next 15 minutes took his pistol and proceeded to shoot and kill 23 people and wound 20 others inside the cafeteria unchallenged. Walking slowly through the dining room he shot people randomly at close range as they hid underneath and behind tables. Some were shot as he placed his gun to their heads. One lady, Suzanna Hupp, witnessed her parents being shot dead while her pistol, that she normally carried in her purse, lay secured in the glove compartment of her vehicle in the parking lot. After the arriving officers wounded him, he ended it by fatally shooting himself.
This incident really bothered me as I have a wife and daughter that I highly treasure. I couldn’t help but think that if someone there that day had been armed as many of us are today, the Luby’s Cafeteria incident may have turned out differently. A month later after the incident I purchased a little .22 caliber semi-automatic Beretta pistol and started carrying it loose a week or so in my front pocket, hip pocket and coat pocket. After doing so, I determined it would be much better to have a wallet holster that would keep the pistol in position in my pocket all the time, cover the trigger and keep it from printing its outline through my pants.
Back then there weren’t any wallet holsters available anywhere that I could find. So I made one out of some scrap leather from a local Tandy’s leather supply store and some white wood glue, no stitching. It lasted 18 years despite being dunked underwater twice when I stepped out of my boat into some deceptively shallow water.
I carried the Beretta for a long time until the Kel-tec P-32 became available. It was much thinner and lighter and fortunately it fit my wallet holster too, so I carried it in my hip pocket for several years.
When I good friend of mine introduced me to the Ruger LCP 380, I quickly saw that it was a perfect pistol for my wallet holster. Larger caliber and not much larger in size and weight than the Kel-tec P32. I soon got one and found that it did not fit my old holster so I again made one. It turned out to be just a little different to make it fit the LCP but much the same as the unique half-holster design I came up with back in 1991 only this time I sewed it and glued it together. The same friend that introduced me to the Ruger LCP saw my holster out at the firing range and asked me to make him one. I did and he liked it and carries it to this day. He is the one that suggested I started selling them. I did, and do it to this day also.
I want folks to have the opportunity to have the holster that I like and carry and rely upon to have with me each day pretty much wherever I go. Please consider taking on the responsibility of your own safety and those around you by being armed. We have the right to do so.
