Most people who knew Lou Alessi as a legendary holstermaker are now aware of his passing this past weekend. He is a memory I experience everyday when I put my gunleather on. I hope to be able to pass this legendary leather on to my children as they grow up. His leather work is made to last and wears incredibly well. Let's show other members his fine work as a tribute in this thread.
Here's what Alessi leather I have:

I never met Mr. Alessi but had many pleasant conversations with him. He was a very friendly guy that would go out his way to help a person in need. That's something that's kinda rare these days. I have owned and still own a few of his fine holsters. In fact my carry rig that I have been using for several years now (and still do) is Mr. Alessi's CQC-S.

You will be missed my friend.

Anyway, it was a pleasure getting to know you. :)
