“The most beautiful carry rig I have EVER seen!”

Posted by Rob Longenecker on October 11th, 2006

This “Ranger Rig” is a special masterpiece by a real artist and craftsman. A recent participant on GlockTalk posted that comment and the picture below.  I thought you might like to read the story behind the picture. 


Tucker made this gunbelt, holster and double magazine pouch about 7 years ago for a famous Texas Ranger, Drew Carter. Drew was the savvy Texas Ranger who arranged the surrender of a criminal featured on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted List, Rafael Resendez-Ramirez, the “Railroad Killer.” 

Here’s a link to an article from the American Police Hall of Fame about Ranger Drew Carter that tells a short version of the story.

Drew wrote a thank you letter to Tucker after using this beautiful rig in the field. If you’d like to read the letter, click here.

This is a picture of Ranger Drew Carter wearing the “two-belt” Ranger Rig that Tucker painstakingly crafted to this Ranger’s personal specifications.

You can have a holster or a complete rig with the same beauty and attention to detail that Tucker put into this famous “Ranger Rig.”  Currently, there are about 10 Texas Rangers wearing Tucker Gunleather rigs because of the appearance and quality Tucker provides, but you don’t have to be a Texas Ranger to own a Tucker Gunleather holster.

What can Tucker build for you?
