The El Paso Saddlery 1942 "Tanker" Holster is a reproduction of the classic military design, only done with the highest quality leather and craftsmanship. "Tanker" holsters have long been used by US Military Armor Officers and NCOs, as well as Pilots and Armored Cavalry Troopers. The Tanker design keeps the pistol up off the waistline and out of the way when shouldering a rifle. Also, the pistol is readily accessible when seated or standing. Making it ideal for handgun hunting or when riding an ATV.
