Why does Tucker “rough it?”

Posted by Rob Longenecker on September 29th, 2006

Usually, I look forward to returning phone calls because it means I’m getting another Tucker Gunleather order or there’s some guy who just got his new leather and wants me to “tell Tucker” how much he likes it. I end up “telling Tucker” several times a day. That’s one of the most fun parts of my job. Tucker likes hearing it, too. Very much. (proud of his work, don’tcha’ know.)

Today I returned a call to a customer who had a question about his new Texas Heritage IWB. He liked the way it was made and how well the gun fit, but he asked me, “Did Tucker do it on purpose?” 

“Do what on purpose?” I said.

He said, “The piece of leather next to my body got flipped so that the rough side is toward my skin – that’s got to be a mistake, right? I ordered the holster in “smoothout.” (continued below pictures.)

I told him he might be glad when he wore his Texas Heritage in the heat and humidity.

Smooth leather next to your skin when you sweat can be “tacky” feeling and irritating, but the “rough” side isn’t really that rough and the texture will allow air circulation while not  sticking to your skin.   It’s  more comfortable for many people that way.

Tucker does have your comfort in mind at all times, so you can have it however you want it.  If you want roughout toward your jeans and smooth toward your skin, you can have that, too. 

Just ask for what you want. You can always give extra details with your order in the “comments” section before you  submit your order. You can always call and talk to me to make sure you get it exactly the way you want.

I thought I’d share this with the many of you who have a Texas Heritage or who are about to order one. This way I won’t have to be ‘splainin’ it all the time.  Just remember, whether you order “smoothout” or ”roughout” the side toward your skin will be rough side out unless you request otherwise. Keep that in mind when ordering.

It may be time to put a Texas Heritage on your hip and check it out for yourself, but I’m warning you – if you do, you’ll be calling me to say, “Hey, will you tell Tucker how great I think his holster is?”

Rob
