Chimaera: a mythological creature that was part Lion and part Goat, with a Snake for a tail.
So...why Chimaera? The short version: I was asked to design a holster that could be used as a wallet holster, that also could be used as a pocket holster, as well as having snaps to secure it inside of a fanny-pack or a purse. Gievn that the holster would actually be three holsters in one, the chimaera came to mind...three different animals comprising one beast.
The result is a pocket holster, snug to the gun, and fitted perfectly. In its wallet configuration, it disappears easily in a rear hip pocket. Remove the wallet flap and its a minimalist holster for your front pocket. Out for a jog, or going shopping? Remove the wallet flap and snap the holster into your fanny-pack or purse, and you're good to go. We'll happily add a set of snaps to one pack or purse free of charge with your initial order, and a minimal $12 for each additional one.
Made for the recent crop of small pocket guns chambered in .380 ACP or 9mm, all leather, with the ability to make it upscaled with exotic skins, or airbrushed colors.
With the removable wallet flap dressed up in exotic leathers or airbrushed colors, this holster is simply stunning!.
- One-handed, in pocket re-holstering.
- Formed exactly to your guns...not a one-size-fits-all nylon rig.
- The form-fitted boning process ensures maximum safety in keeping foreign objects out of the trigger area so as to prevent unwanted / accidental discharge.
When you place an order for a Chimaera, you'll have a few choices. Black, or airbrushed color? Straight-up leather, or an exotic skin? Customizing is easy!.
Below are a few samples to help you visualize the design of your one-of-a-kind holster.

"I've got to say, I think Dennis really has a winner of an idea here. The leather backing snaps right off for a standard pocket holster, and a couple of snaps added to one's purse or fanny pack allow the holster to be secured inside the pack if desired. With the back in place, the holster looks like any standard billfold sitting in a back pocket."

"Its like Christmas whenever you get a package from Dragon Leatherworks in your mailbox! Back in January, I mentioned that I was looking for a fanny-pack style holster. I got some excellent advice, so I took that advice and ended up going to Dennis. I asked if he could figure out a way to attach one of his Wyvern holsters into a pack for me. Dennis, being the awesome guy he is, took that idea and ran with it, coming up with his Chimaera holster..."
