Model:  HW12 Convertible

"It's gorgeous!  Real work of art.  I'm sure it will blow my son away when he opens the present."

After Christmas addition: Yes, a big hit.  His first words were, "Awesome!"  His first action, after I explained its convertibility, was to change it to the lower setting.  And then he pretty much wore it the rest of the day, strutting around whilst practicing his fast draw (of course, two basic principles: gun unloaded and never pointed at any person anyway).  Yes indeed, a big hit.

Model: CA4

I just got back from the Post Office where I found my CA4 waiting for me. It is about two weeks early, so I was really delighted!

Well, I can't tell you how pleased I am. The material and workmanship appear to be flawless. The fit to my revolver is impeccable, and I am very well pleased. I have spent a fair amount of time (off and on) over the last fifty years carrying a single action revolver in the woods, and I have never had a rig as nice as the one you made for me. I figure  that it can only get better as I wear it.

Could I sandpaper the inside of the belt to make it just a bit less slick? I don't have much of a butt to hold it up.

It really is beautiful and I am sure it will outlast me by many years.

Thank you ever so much again.

Yours

I received my PS2 holster Saturday. My birthday is shortly after Christmas and my wife's idea was to give it to me then. However, I talked her into letting me wear it now. I have been using it since and am very pleased with it. It is such an improvement over my old inside the waistband holster that there is no comparison. It holds the gun securely, yet is very easy to draw from. It is very comfortable to wear. But the thing I'm most impressed with is how it stays put. It shifts very little if at all while I move about and conceals easily even under a light vest. I'm sure you know all this, being as you built the holster, but I just wanted to let all of you know how happy I am with your holster. Hope you all have a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year. Feel free to post this on your customer comments page. I hope to be able to do business with you folks again in the future.

Bob,

You've done it again!

Two new holsters were waiting for me when I got back from a business trip. That was quick! In plenty of time for Christmas. (As the PS2 is a present.)

Sweet! They're beautiful and solid as always and the fit couldn't possibly be better!

I can't tell you enough how happy I am with your work. You've not only made me a very happy camper again, you've made me a customer for life.

As I discussed with you previously, I need a holster for a black powder revolver and I'll be in touch with you soon.

Thank you very much,

Can you give me a quote on an FD9 holster only in roughout tan (natural) for a Colt's SSA 4 5/8" bbl.?  I have an old roughout belt that was made by Richard Boone's stunt double on HGWT years ago that I would like to do something with and I can't think of anything better than to hang one of your holsters off of it.

PS:  Still, a year later,  carrying my work Colt's in your PS6-SA rig.  I am surprised that there is no wear, considering the economy of leather.  Not a big, bulky rig at all.  A tribute to your skill!

Hello Bob!

My shoulder holster arrived today.  Thank you so much for such nice workmanship.  I'm eager to show it to the group we shoot with.  Hopefully I can send some business your way.  In time I will order again.  I especially like the use of the softer leather for the shoulder strapping and the firmness of the holster itself.  A definite winner!

I love my current belt and want another just like it.  I need to get one that I will wear only for "dress" as my current belt has a few scuffs from everyday use (and not so everyday use), but it is still rugged as an ox!  Your products are great investments.

Bob, please excuse the subject name ³awsesome² as it is such an overused cliché. But awesome is the first word that came to mind upon opening the Box containing my black carved rig with a cross holster, the shoulder rig and the belt. When the aroma of fresh dyed hand carved leather came wafting out of the box I felt the excitement of Christmas 1957 when I opened my Red Ryder BB gun at the age of 10. Whoa Mr. Kudos to all. Bonnie your carving is exquisite. Thank you so very much and the very best to all of you.

Boy is this H12 a nice piece of work. Course all your leather is nice quality but I just got this in and had to take it for myself before it hit the shelves, HE HE. That's the one advantage of owning my own store is that I get to see things first!!!! I just sent a check for the cross draw to go with it and can't wait to shoot it at a match. That's saying something coming from me as I have one of your fully carved rigs and a couple others that I own for myself, but this one just caught my fancy in looks and workmanship. Thanks for the fast turn around time and quality.

 Your pard, Hot Rod.

        Model: PS6

Howdy,  received the PS6 Friday.  I have been wearing it since then.  When I put my pants on, I put my gun on, and it is there until I undress.  I actually had to check once to see if I still hand the Colt Officer's model on my belt.  It is so compact and carries the bulk of the gun just high enough above my waist, that the weight is better distributed on my belt.  I carry my pistol right at 3:00 o'clock and no matter what I used in the past, I could always feel that lump bearing down on the side of my hip. 

I find that due to your low cut front design, the "higher carry" in no way slows down clearing the holster.  It is as fast an any pancake, belt slide, or Yaqui or any of that type of holster.  In other words, I like it!!

Your secret tab really works.  I am also impressed by the fit and have found that you can't pull the gun out of the holster from the front i.e. somebody trying to make a gun grab from the front, and yet drawing the gun in a normal manner is slick and quick!

I was pleasantly surprised when I saw the decoration on the holster.  I ordered a plain black one and, the stamping is a nice and unexpected bonus.  It is greatly appreciated.

I will let you know how things work out after wearing the holster for a few days, weeks ... etc.  As of now, I am very pleased with the positioning, comfort and quality.  I'll be showing this little critter to my friends and I suspect you will be getting more orders from Wyoming.  Thanks for a great product, and even better service.

Mr Mernickle, a couple of weeks ago I contacted you just to see if my order had reached you.  You informed me that it had and that it takes about 6 weeks to ship an order.  You said you received the order July 26, I believe.  That would mean I still have about 2 or 3 weeks wait.  No big deal.  Well, I was surprised today to find my order had arrived.  I was on my way to work and could just give it a cursory look.  It looks better in the hand than in a picture.  It looks great!  I will write you back in a few weeks, after I have tried it, to let you know what I think of it.  I'm sure I will be pleased with it.  There is another holster that I like, it is the HW14.  Who know, I may later on order it with maybe a straight drop instead of the angled drop.  You certainly surprised me.

        Dear Bob,

        Received the rig last night.

I'm still lacking the words to describe the absolute beauty of your artistry.  It was a given that the quality would be outstanding - the rig is so far beyond the definition of "quality", I find it unexplainable.

The fit is perfect. The six extra loops are completely accessible, and the '58 Remmies fit as if you had the actual pieces themselves.  They draw from the holsters smoothly, and are retained just right.

How you do it I'll never know, but that's why you're an artist.  I've never been really satisfied with the commercial holsters for my carry gun, so in the near future I'll probably be contacting you for your advice.

Thanks so very much - I can't wait for our next shoot to wear them.

Saying I'm a "satisfied" customer is a gross understatement.

Best Regards.

I just received a beautiful holster from the "Mernickles" and wanted to write a thank you for a business transaction that didn't feel like a business transaction at all.  The staff was great, the young lady that I spoke on the phone with, I'm sorry I don't remember her name, but she was exceptional.  I ordered a holster, and by fault, all my own, it wasn't what I expected it to be when I received it.  I was told to send it back, I did.  I called and spoke with Bob M. personally, and together we came up with a design that was perfect.  I received it today and it really is perfect.  So in closing I would like to say thanks to Bob and his staff for the personal attention you just don't get anymore.

Thanks Bob and Staff

Bob, I want to thank you and your staff for taking the extra effort to get my new holsters to me in time to shoot my first SASS meet.  Actually, you got them to me early enough to make a shoot even earlier than I had planned/asked you to meet.  The holsters are really nice.  They fit well, glad you all leaned on me to get the 40 inch belt.  They do have a gunfight look to them.  I love the new Cowboy stitch on the holsters and belts.  My black boots actually have a matching stitch on the toe portion!  I got a lot of positive comments on them when I wore them to the Virginia Beach, Pungo Posse shoot this past Saturday.  People wanted to know where I got them from, wanted to try their guns in them.  You need to include a few business cards with your orders when you ship them to us to hand out.  Two questions, where would be a good local type of store to get some black tie down straps for my legs if I want to play gunfighter, and two, what is a good dressing to put on the holsters and belt when they get wear marks and such?  (Answer:  "We use Acrylic on the holsters so when they start looking dull just go to a leather shop and ask for some. If you can't find it there we have it here.  Be glad to send you a couple of tie downs.")

Again, thank you very much.  I will be more than glad to brag about these holsters to anyone that will listen.  I really like the simplistic, gunfighter look.

Hi again Bob!

I just left my local gun shop where the subject of new plastic type holsters came up. (And how reasonably priced they are.) I told the owner and another patron about your company and how pleased a customer I am. When I told them I had you make a couple of custom holsters for me, the response from the patron was "Yeah. And what did that cost? A couple hundred dollars a piece?" They were floored when I told them "Not even close!" They were amazed when I related the tale about our venture (unsuccessful one) to get a dummy gun from the manufacturer so you could start making holsters for me. And how we (due to your idea) solved the problem. Well, they just had to see one of the holsters for themselves. I said "You're in luck, I have the PS-2 with me." They were impressed. Very impressed! They wanted to know all about your company so I'm sending them your home page via email. The shop owner is very anxious to see the PS-6 so I promised to bring it in for his inspection soon. (There isn't a doubt in my mind that he'll love it!)

Thanks again and I'm looking forward to doing more business with you in the future.

Since my SASS character is not a well-off sort and packs a pair of Remington 1858 New Army cap and ball revolvers with 7 =" barrels, I was looking for a double rig of fairly plain design suitable for a C&B shooter. I looked at what was on the market and didn't see anything that really suited my taste and my character.

That's when I ran across your Web site. I looked at your offerings and the double buscadero rig struck my fancy! I liked the look and the idea of the "lady cut" belt as well. I called, explained what I was after, and asked you to make me something.

Well, it arrived today and all I can say is "HOT DAMN!" - what a gorgeous rig!!!! The "lady cut" belt fits perfectly and carries the weight like a dream! The way you cut the holsters to go with the Remingtons is INCREDIBLE! The trim "modified slim-jim" looks positively elegant with the Remingtons. The belt that could have looked very nondescript without cartridge loops looks wonderful with the edge stitching and the few little extras embellishments! The shading of the leather adds yet another touch of class.

There is a saying about "beauty in simplicity" - well, THIS IS IT!

It is a mighty fine looking rig - I have no regrets at all about trusting your artistic talents and you can be sure I'll be telling everybody exactly WHO made this lovely "lady's cap and ball rig"!

WELL DONE!

Bob:

After using my CA5/6 "rig" the past few weeks at gun shows and in four matches, I learned that the design of this "rig" is wonderfully technically proficient.  Your knowledge and experience  in fast draw makes significant difference. E.g., the cartridge loops on my "rig" are at the top of the belt and easy to access: the holsters are designed for easy access and re-entry and the cant of the CD is "right". The lined belt is easy on and off.  It simply does not need a "double loop" and it is comfortable to wear

Thank You for your outstanding service and quality of leather with my first order.

Dear Bob,

Rec'd the PS6SA for my Colt's.  Really nice job!  Exceeded my expectations.  I really like the weight of the leather.  This one does not need to be thick. I'll start wearing it for concealed carry in the Fall.  It might interest you to know that it is a perfect fit for my "regular use" blue/case hardened 4 5/8" (my "showpiece" nickel 5 1/2" fits well too) but my junker Dakota, that I keep around to let people play fast draw, has too tight a fit.  Good going!  This shows you are the master. This holster is too good for a Dakota anyway.  Nothing but pure Colt's will ever touch it.

Thanks again.

Good Morning Bob,

I received my Taffin #1PS6A yesterday and is all and more than I expected!  The workmanship and material quality is outstanding!  The round carrier is equal to the holster!

The Ruger looks right at home and the fit is perfect.  I look forward to many years of use from this rig.

Needless to say I will show your work off to my friends and hope to send you orders from them.  I'm sure I will have more leather needs myself and I will always check with you.

Thanks again for the beautiful job.

I received it over the weekend.  Although I have double western holsters for cowboy action from you, this is the first "working" holster I have had made by y'all.  It is superb! ...and very comfortable (important for those of us who have not yet legislated away our freedoms and are allowed to protect ourselves.  I will never buy another "off the shelf" holster regardless of brand name and hype.  You have all my business from now on.  Thanks so much for being so expedient and customer focused.

Yesterday afternoon I discovered my holster was at home awaiting my return from work.  Congratulations on a job well done.  The construction was flawless; the fit and finish is perfect; the carving on the holster was the exact execution of the snakehead I desired.  I now have a one-of-a-kink heirloom that will last for generations.  Thanks!

Hi Bob,

Just wanted to drop you a note to let you know that we received Charlie's holster yesterday and it is fantastic!  The color is won\derful and the fit is, as usual, like a glove.  You really outdid yourself on this one.

What kind of product do you recommend to keep the leather in good condition due to the extreme arid conditions here in Nevada?

Can you make the PS6 for the 1911 with and FBI cant?

Thanks again for the great work.

Got the holster and mag holder on Saturday and was really pleased with the looks and quality.  Your probably don't remember but I told you when I ordered the gear that I wanted to wear it with an old money belt that I have.  I thought I might have to dye the pieces a little so they would match the belt. Not so. They all match perfectly.  Thanks a lot.  I'm really happy with the way everything turned out.

I ordered an FC3 from you custom engraved with the Ruger emblem on it.  I received it perhaps a week or two ago, but due to work, was unable to try it out.  It look absolutely fabulous, but the carry is even better.  It fits the Ruger Super Blackhawk like a glove, draws are lightning quick, and it still looks superb.  Thank You for delivering a product well worth the price and the wait.

P.S. I know Bonnie deserves the credit for the engraving, tell her 'Thanks' for me.  CA

I have not had a chance to wear the holster for any length of time, but will be doing so in a couple of weeks.

Thank you so much for the wonderful craftsmanship and perfect fit of my very special custom holster. I am certain that I could have found a holster and belt for a slightly smaller investment elsewhere but I would never have been as pleased as I am to have this holster. My custom holster is magnificent example of your dedication and artistic expertise. I appreciate your extra effort and considerate gesture of rush shipping it to me by Christmas. It will give me pride and tremendous protection for my 44 magnum and will certainly be a conversation piece around Bear and Elk hunting campfires for many years to come.

I will tell my friends where to find the finest custom made holsters, belts, and rifle slings obtainable anywhere!

I had a couple of guys over to drool over and they want to know if you would build a less expensive rig for them, and if so, how much?

This rig has relit my fire in Fast Draw that was dying out because of the fact that I didn't feel up to it and figured what's the use, but now, I'm back and on fire for Fast Draw.  Thanks to your perfect rig.

Thanks a MILLION.

       Dear Bob and Bonnie

Last night, arriving home after work I spotted your shipping box in the days mail, I immediately open it it putting the holsters on over my business clothes.  I then slid in my six shooters, a perfect fit.  The Cowboy Action shooting holsters, gun belt, knife sheath and shotgun cartridge belt are all perfect -- I am elated!

Bob, your adroit craftsmanship is obvious as shown by painstaking attention to detail.  Additionally, the custom carving of the Adder heads on the holsters by Bonnie is meticulous as well as stunning.  The holsters are, as my 16 year old son would say, "waaaay cool".  I may not be the #1 shootest at the SASS matches, but I know I'll have the coolest looking, best crafted, most functional holsters.  (Is there such a thing as, -holster envy-?).

        Bob and Bonnie thank you very much.

Hi Bob,

Just thought you might want to know how the holster you made for me performed in the field. I used the holster during a black bear hunt in northern Maine during the first week of September. I carried a Ruger Blackhawk 45 Colt with a 5 1/2barrel. I carried it every day and it is by far the most comfortable holster I have found yet for a gun that big.

I carried the gun on 4 mile walks, in tree stands and ground blinds, and in and out of vehicles. On two occasions I helped the guide search in very heavy brush for wounded bears. The search is done by following a very large Rottweiler while holding a handgun and questioning your sanity just about every step.

During all of this activity the field carry holster performed great. It kept the gun secure and out of the way while being very accessible. I would like to thank you again for filling my order on short notice and making sure that I received the holster in time for the hunt.

Bob,

I told you that I would try the holster and get back to you as to how I like it or don't like it. Not much excites me Bob, but I have been wearing my holster daily for a little over 6 months and I indeed love it. I ordered the PS6, mag carrier (P22), and a belt for my Springfield 1911A1 and as a Police Officer I was a little concerned that the holster did not have a thumb strap. Your manufacturing methods are excellent because I have never worried about the pistol coming out of the holster unless I deliberately pulled it out. The holster, belt, mag carrier combo is a great tool that I use almost every day in my duties. The extreme high carry is just the thing I was looking for in a concealed carry package. Thank you for your superior product, personal attention, and honest approach to doing business. I look forward to using my current product for years to come and to ordering other products from your line in the future when the need arises.

Sincerely,

I turned to Bob Mernickle when I found no major holster maker made what I wanted, and most custom makes weren't so custom. I wanted a leather, IWB holster with a straight cant. Bob gave me this plus reinforced the lip, and cut down the front in the quick-draw style. The holster was concealable, secure, comfortable, and real fast.

I got to test it out chasing down a burglary suspect. We ran 150 yds. full out. The suspect turned and charged directly at me. In the blink of an eye, (Yeah, Blink!), I presented from under a cover shirt and squared my sights on the suspect's chest. He surrendered. Uniformed officers caught up to my location. I identified myself and re-holstered one-handed. The suspect got two years and his second strike.

Looking back on the incident, there are a few things I would do differently now. The one thing I would not change is the holster. I don't consider my Mernickle holster just a holder for my gun; I consider it an integral part of the emergency life-saving equipment I carry.

Thanks Bob.

Howdy Bob,

I got the holsters this past week and was amazed at how beautiful and well made they are. Absolutely the finest rig I've laid eyes on in almost 9 years of Cowboy Action Shooting.

They instantly became my favorite rig, and when I attended a small monthly shoot yesterday, I got a heckuva lot of compliments on them. Another one of the shooters, Cutter Kid was wearing a rig you made, too. But I liked mine better. By the way, he said he thought you might be moving to Arizona. It's be nice to have you on our side of the border, that's for sure.

I had intended to write a letter to you, but when I looked at the invoice to get your address, I saw your email address. From now on, if anyone asks me, you're the artist who combines form and function better than any other.

I was just snooping around your site again, and was pleased to see the many new additions. I have been using your holsters now for a year. You will remember that I bought two IWB (one normal, one deep) and a tooled "Extreme" with a thumbreak. In addition, I bought a double thick belt! I could not be more pleased. The quality stays! The most amazing thing is the IWB (PS-2) holsters. After one year, they wear better, retain the weapons very well, and the spring hasn't lost a bit of it's bite. I don't use the belt...just the waistband, and my only gripe is that I have to fight the things to get them off! No...unholstering the weapon will not remove the holster.

I've had many compliments and inquiries about the holsters, and have sent many people toward your web site. Thanks again for the holsters, and thanks for the quality work!

I am very glad to say, that with your creations, "what you see is what you get". In the beginning I was very impressed with the images of your work as I viewed them on your net site - then I got the real thing - WOW!!! Very, very nice. Thanks.

I still have plans to order another rig (in left hand), but I have had a set back in my work due to my being very ill. So, it will probably be around December or January before I can send the order to you. The good thing is that I have people wanting my artwork (it sort of happens that way when one is low on work and has very little to offer!)

Thanks again, the belt and holster are beautiful. My Friend Don Faulkenberry who has an order in for one of your rigs, saw mine when I got it, and is chomping at the bit to get his. I can see how you are six weeks back logged. Great!!!

Model:  PS7 with Thumbrake

Hi Bob,

Well, you were right, it did "come any day now"! .....and I'm excited! I have never been disappointed with your work. The holster is the top quality that you always produce! The 6" Mod. 629 44 Magnum fits like a glove. The leather is thick and strong, the stitching and design holds the holster firmly in place. This is no small feat for a large revolver such as this in an SOB holster!

The angle you tilted it at is perfect to keep the revolver high enough for concealment under loose fitting clothes (I usually wear like a denim shirt, open over a "T" shirt). Since I'm big (not over-weight type big) -- 6' 4" / 245lbs. (Well, not too much over-weight).........it conceals great. Of course, if you bend over the grip will protrude (unless you glue it to your back) -- so you just have to be conscious of how and when you do it. Since I was use to carrying a S&W .45 Auto in SOB fashion, I know how to sit, etc. and still be comfortable.

The thumb-break holds the revolver in securely and will take the worry out of doing things like riding a motorcycle. I had mentioned that my brother and my very best friend are police officers. Whenever I use to talk to them, I envisioned and described my "wish list" for the perfect holster to carry a large revolver. I even spent much time looking for one for the .45, but never found one with everything I needed. This one has it all! Nobody else had such a rig until I talked to you...................SO THANK YOU VERY MUCH -- and good luck with this new product. I'm sure the word will get out!

I ordered a custom holster from you after speaking with yourself and your friendly wife. Since my order was so custom, I was concerned that either there would be miscommunication or just an inability to "get it right".

My name is David Woroner. A graduate of Executive Security International, PADI SCUBA Instructor, USCG 100 Ton Master of Vessels. I have worked as an Executive Protection Agent, a competitor in IPSC competition, NRA Firearms Instructor, Instructor of Executive Protection to Members of Law Enforcement, Instruction in Officer Survival.

Sir, you "got it right". If you remember, it was a cross-draw for a lefty, slightly canted forward, for a Glock. I am so pleased with the fit, comfort, quality of workmanship and overall performance. I wanted to let you know that there are still people who care about quality & service. You delivered both and more. You may expect more orders from myself and my fellow gunmen. I would also like to extend you the offer to use this as a testimonial. I feel that strongly.

Sincerely,
