Robert Locke who owned Mecco Holsters and did all the work himself died last night from cancer.
He was a friend of the industry and a true Gentleman.
Wow....knew I recognized the name, but couldn't place it until I opened the thread. This makes me sad. RIP Robert.
I just went to the Meco Holster website within the last few weeks to place an order and read the notice they "were NOT manufacturing holsters or belts at this time".
I have one of his split front pocket holsters for my XR45.
Rest in peace Robert.
Robert's Son Tim plans on taking over the business for now anyway. I do not know how familiar he is with it.
I wish him the best.
Robert's holsters are now collectors items. R.I.P.
Rest in Peace Robert. I'm glad I was smart enough to purchase one of your fine holsters.
Mine's still for sale. R/H inside pocket, unlined. Used maybe three times just some sight track marks near the bottom.
Hello all, I want to thank everyone on behalf of the family for the kind words about Dad. He is greatly missed by many. As to answer some of the questions above, Yes I will be attempting to carry on Dad's legacy, I have been working under Dad's Instruction for about 5 years now. I am somewhat nervous about this but, he had the confidence in me to leave the business to me so I owe him the attempt. The site will be back up soon as I get everything in order. Once again thank you all.
It will be fine...it's in your family DNA.
