    I am just nuts about the older Lawrence leather, and have collected a good deal of his gunbelts, holsters, bandoleers, and you name it...

    Quality like you dream of, and as simple or complicated as your pocketbook ~ back in the day....If you want to know what a good rig looks like, pick up a nice older Lawrence Rig. That will be the baseline for judging quality. I compare even the newest, best recognized leather to the old standard of that company...


    Somebody else post something special that G. Lawrence did back when......

    I'm just to shy to go first.:eek:

    Hastings, Nebraska - the Heartland!
    George Lawrence was a favorite of the late Elmer Keith, who carried guns as a daily event in the days before cell phones and modern vehicles. The designs were not sexy and racy, but they were functional, useful and well assembled.

    I grew up in Portland, Oregon, where the George Lawrence Company was located. In all the time I lived there, I only visited the store once - long ago. I regret not going there more often, but I was just a kid.

    Just on the line of trivia, George Lawrence also was an auto parts distributor, retail and wholesale. You could buy a holster and spark plugs and stuff.
