Red Nichols joined the gunleather industry over a half-century ago when he apprenticed as a designer/maker to world-renowned John Bianchi in 1970. He spent the decades of the 1970s and 1980s developing all of the Bianchi Holster Co.'s American-made product line and setting new benchmarks for gunleather performance and construction.
Then came the 1990s and his Nichols Innovation Co., the world's first consulting design service to the holster industry, where he created more industry standards for holster companies including Aker, DeSantis, Galco, Shooting Systems and dozens more.
Now, and for seasoned professionals only, since 2011 Red has hand-made his latest holstering innovations in his own shop in Queensland, Australia.
