Why Talon Holsters?
Many companies build holsters and many others teach firearms training; still others own and run shooting ranges. Few do all three, and almost no one does all three well.
Here at Talon, we spend the bulk of our time teaching average citizens to protect themselves; we carry concealed and most of us actually carry or have carried a gun for a living. Take a moment to become an informed buyer and we think you will join the Talon Family.
We offer quality manufactured leather holsters, made in the USA and designed by law enforcement officers with input from our civilian students. Our customer service is exceptional and our NO BULL Guarantee is there to assure customers we won't give them a hard time if they are not happy. All Talon customers are happy or they get their money back.... period.
At Talon, we are passionate about our business. We want you to buy quality, buy American, buy Talon!
J.D. Johnson and Charlie Strickland both started as police officers before 1990 and became deputy sheriffs shortly afterward. They each have been training law enforcement officers to shoot, drive, fight and protect themselves for more than two decades.
In 2008 they founded Talon Training Group and started teaching average citizens to shoot. They wanted to make their community safer by empowering citizens to protect themselves. You see, after decades of being law enforcement officers, they realized they would almost never actually be there when someone needed them. People simply had to be able to protect themselves, and Talon Training was their solution. Many cops focus on training cops; Talon focuses on training you.
Dozens of people trained in the North Florida, South Georgia and South Alabama areas turned into hundreds trained… and then to thousands. Students said they needed a safe place to shoot, so Charlie and JD built Talon Range on 100 acres just west of Tallahassee. The other need identified was holsters that were really high quality but affordable and made in the USA, specifically for concealed carry with the smallest new guns. Not plastic -- traditional leather, hand-crafted and carefully built.
As Talon Training grew to over a dozen very qualified LEO instructors, Charlie and J.D. were able to get a LOT of feedback on holster designs. Finally, they found exactly what they needed: an American manufacturer who would make exactly what they wanted and had years experience building custom leather items. They secured domestic supply chains for the components, of which the biggest win was Hermann Oak Leather. Some companies use Hermann Oak for finer lines of holsters but use imported leather for standard lines. Talon uses exclusively Hermann Oak on every. single. holster.
Talon Holsters are now a HUGE hit. Our seller rating on Amazon is 100% and our customer feedback is great across the board. Our customer service is exceptional and our NO BULL Guarantee ensures we won't give you a hard time if you are not happy. At Talon, we are passionate about our business and we want to make sure you are too. Have questions? Contact us!
