- Tom Threepersons (July 22, 1889 – April 2, 1969) was a Cherokee lawman. He is considered to have been one of the last of what were considered gunfighters of the Old West, although his career did not begin until the early 20th century. He invented the “Tom Threepersons holster. Threepersons was well known for his exploits, and starting in 1925, the S.D. Myres Saddle Co., of El Paso, began advertising the “Tom Threepersons-style holsters”. The holster, which included a cutaway top exposing the pistol hammer and trigger guard, became popular and was copied by several other manufacturers.
- The Threepersons Holster is a highly popular design. This very functional holster is durable and attractive.
- Features include an exposed trigger guard and straight welt line for quick draw. It comes standard with a 1 3/4 inch belt loop. The method of lining is unique to this design, in that it extends over the front of the holster and is then sewn down. This insures a smooth pistol draw and return to holster. A 5/8 inch strap crosses the hammer and closes with a security snap for safety.
