    Does anyone know if a Slim Jim holster would be period correct?

    Default Holsters

    In short, the answer is yes. The California or Slim Jim style holsters were somewhat prevalent in the western part of the nation during the period. They arose from the need that the `49'ers had for carrying the various models of revolvers that were coming onto the scene and being carried for protection. There are differences in styling between those made in the 1850's and those made in the 1870's

    Hallo!

    You mean whether a particular reproduction is a Period Correct "Slim Jim" holster reproduction...

    Or, is a "Slim Jim" holster historically correct for what particular impression's time and place?

    Sorry, couldna resist.
