Hero Concealment Holsters—Quality Made by Heroic Hands

Hero Concealment Holsters—Quality Made by Heroic Hands

Unfortunately in today’s society, there are a lot of people who are looked up to as “heroes.” While the majority of them really haven’t done anything truly heroic, there are a few who have.

One truly heroic man is the owner and founder of Hero Holsters: Brandon Moore. Brandon was a deputy sheriff and detective with the Morrow County Ohio Sheriff’s Office for a number of years. Fortunately for Brandon, he has a strong faith in God and a love of shooting that motivated him to become extremely proficient with his handgun. These two factors were to save his life in October 2010 when he encountered an outdoor marijuana grow and an enraged grower during a minor neighborhood dispute.

Almost immediately after spotting the grow, Brandon heard rifle fire aimed at his direction, and was struck by 5.56mm bullets fired from the grower’s AR-15. The first round tore through his scrotum. The second penetrated his body armor and shattered a rib on his left side. Rib fragments ripped open his spleen and he was bleeding internally.

The third tore across his left foot, breaking and destroying the metatarsals. The fourth impacted his left femur above the knee and halfway severed his leg. As he fell to the ground, Brandon drew his Smith and Wesson M&P 40.

Brandon returned fire from behind the front wheels of his car. From 64 yards, shooting from a right-hand rollover prone position and holding his scrotum with his left to stop the bleeding, Brandon returned fire. The first .40 caliber round hit the grower’s body armor. Brandon’s rounds chewed the bones in the right leg to dust, and blew the heel and tendons off the left foot, ending the fight. Backup and medical aid soon arrived, saving Brandon’s life. After many surgeries, Brandon was able to return to duty. Soon after, Brandon realized that the permanence of his injuries prohibited him from being able to effectively back up his fellow deputies on the road. He decided to retire.

Brandon has a new career that combines his love of the shooting sports and his support of the Second Amendment: designing and making concealment holsters. Brandon’s holster line consists of Kydex scabbards riveted onto cowhide backing in the popular inside-the-waistband “tuckable” style. The metal belt clips on the cowhide backing allow the holster to be positioned between the wearer’s underwear and the waistband of their pants. The shirt can be tucked in over the gun and holster between the belt clips and the cowhide backing for total concealment. The Kydex scabbard, molded precisely to the gun, holds it in place.

Brandon uses thicker Kydex than some manufacturers for extra strength and there are extra holes below the mounted position of the clips to allow for repositioning for individualized comfort.

The overall craftsmanship is second to none. It fits my Glock 32 like a glove and is quite comfortable, even with a gun this size.

Brandon currently makes his IWB holsters for full-size, compact, and subcompact pistols. What is incredible is that these handcrafted beauties are priced at only $50. He also makes a pink leather version for the ladies.

Brandon’s heroism lies not only in his incredible feat of arms, but also in the fact that Brandon remains true to his commitment to the Constitution and the citizens he served. Keep him in mind when looking for a holster. You can find out more about him and the shooting on his website, www.heroholsters.com.

  1. Scott, This looks like the Galco holster. Could you give us a comparison? Jack

    1. @Jsinton,

      I haven’t held a Galco to verify this, but the pics on their website indicate to me that their IWB of this style uses a .06-thickness Kydex which is widely known to crack. I know of 3 people with 4 holsters from another maker which have all cracked. I use .08-thickness and to my knowledge, none have cracked.

  2. Does he have a website for his wares?

  3. God bless you Officer Moore, I hope you sell a million holsters.

    1. One million dollars times $50.00 each equals..ahh, ahem, let’s see carry the one, then add…geez it still probably isn’t a fair trade for what our hero would rather be doing. God bless, you are a blessed Officer and I’ll agree, given the circumstances my friend, sell a million plus !!!! Stay networked with your police friends and you’ll remain happy.

  4. Looks like the Crossbred Holster that I have used for about 10 years and love.

  5. I like the holster how can I find one

  6. Brandon’s holster looks like what I need, especially for cooler weather concealment for my XD sub-compact 40 and 9’s. I’d better place my order today, right?

    1. I ordered a Blue Gun for the XD40 subcompact today. Not sure when I’ll get it but I’ll have it as an option on my website once it arrives.

  7. If any of the commenters is interested in Brandon’s Product email me mdunbar2243@gmail.com I will try and get Brandon’s email address for you. I have his phone # but not going to put it out on here…

    1. Matt,
      Thanks for going this – I sent you an email

    2. Thanks Matt!

      They can also go to the website at http://www.heroholsters.com and email him from the website. Brandon is able to reply to them from his email address heroholsters@gmail.com, or they can email him directly at the same address. Thanks Matt your your amazing help. Love from our family to yours.

  8. Please disregard my last post. Brandon’s company email is at the bottom of the story. I do not work with or for Brandon. Brandon is a good man, friend and a hell of a holster maker and I want to see him succeed in this business. Please forward any questions to his company email.

  9. I agree, God Bless you. I hope you sell millions. I will definitely keep you in mind on my next purchase for holsters.

  10. Just ordered one. Looks like a nice holster at a good deal. Belt clips look a little big/ wide, but that can be easily remedied.
    Thank you Officer Moore.

  11. I rather like my Kydex OWB holster from sawyerconcealment.com. Multicam pattern, rides well and holds secure yet allows an easy draw.

  12. I rather prefer my Kydex holster from sawyerconcealment.com Multicam pattern, OWB. It rides well and holds securely yet allows a smooth draw.

  13. I’ m from Morrow county Ohio. Here is the addresses on Brandon’s business card.

  14. Nice looking holsters. I unfortunately for HH use Beretta. I hope to see one in the future. I am not closed to buying other brands but I am stuck on how well my Px4s handle. The only misfire in two years was due to a ” limp wrist ” shot. I use Blackhawk .
    Great video on your site. Thank you for your service Mr. Morrow.

  15. I’ve been looking for something like this for a while and would be proud to of purchased from a true Hero. If you ever decide to expand and have a foot print for a P226 Black Water, a P229 Equinox or a P220 Tactical I’d like ONE of each.

    Thank You Sir for your Service.
