Rhodesian style holster Login/Join

Have any of you guys or gals have experience with the rhodesian style holsters.
I know they sit low on the belt for a faster draw but I've only seen pictures no first hand experience.
There is a guy named Robb Hipp who is making them and I'm leaning towards purchasing one as a new edc holster.
Your thoughts and opinions are welcome.

That style was made famous by Thad Rybka, holster maker. I have several from him.
I also have several from Mr. Hipp. All excellent.

BTW, that is just a name for it - it did not originate in Rhodesia.


No good deed goes unpunished.

Had no idea what that style was, so did a little search. That is a great looking holster from Thad Rydka. I would like one of those very much. Plain, understated and no nonsense. Great for a field type holster, or under a long jacket in the winter.

Is he still making holsters? If so may have to right him a letter according to what I found as far a contacting him. Any idea of what he would charge for that style?



It's all about clean living. Just do the right thing, and karma will help with the rest.

Does anyone know of any other holster makers who produce this style ?

Specifically , how does a person contact and view Mr. Hipp's leatherwork ?
