Dragon Leatherworks Valkyrie

New for 2014 is the first paddle holster available from Dragon Leatherworks. If this holster looks familiar, it's because you may have seen it used by Dwayne "King" Pride in the television series "NCIS." A custom sample replete with a snakeskin insert and two-tone leather arrived here in the office a few weeks ago, and I finally got through gawking at it long enough to tell you about it. It's got a Blackhawk CQC paddle to keep it secured to your belt, and Dragon's custom leather to hold your sidearm steady—and looking sharp, too.

Dennis Badurina, the owner and chief magician at Dragon Leatherworks, started making his own holsters several years ago out of a desire to craft functional and beautiful gun leather. Over the years, his business grew to the point where he opened a shop in Tennessee—a true American success story. He's not trying to compete with the big holster manufacturers. He just wants to provide pieces of art the discriminating pistolero can hang off his or her belt.

For more information on the new Valkyrie or on any of the other custom holsters available at Dragon Leatherworks, contact Badurina at (865) 240-1625 or e-mail: [email protected].
