This invention relates to holsters and particu
larly. articles of manufacture having the ability
to support small arms in the nature of pistols.
The primary object of this invention is to pro
vide a holster for pistols or the like, that isv capa
ble of swinging from one position to another as it

Holsters of the character chosen to illustrate
the invention, are customarily used by ofñcers of
the law, members of the armed forces, and those
habitually carrying side arms as required in their
line of duty.
The use of such side arms, and therefore in i
holsters to support the same, has accompany
ing inconveniences because of the rigid type of
holsters heretofore employed. For example,
when patrolmen ride scout cars or spend the
major portion of their time in an automobile, a
rigid holster will force the supporting belt up
wardly and out of adjustment to a point where
the pistol carried by the holster will not be read
ily available upon leaving the motor car.
The problem just set forth is but one example
of the reason why the body portion of the hol
hinder manipulation.
Body I0 and support 20 are pivotally inter
connected, as clearly illustrated by Fig. 4. Rivet
36 having head 38 is embedded between strip 28
and ñller 30. The shank of rivet 35 extends
through one layer of body I0. In this respect,
it will be noted that body I Il is formed of leather
and that the projected portion I8 has two thick
nesses of sheet material 40 between which wash
er 42 and the upset portion 44 of rivet 36 is caused
to lie. The pivotal interconnection between body
I0 and support 20, is, therefore, rivet 36, and body
I0 moves about the axis of this rivet when the
latching mechanism about to be described, is in
operative.
In the embodiment illustrated, the latching
mechanism for holding the body Iû against move
ment relative to support 20, comprises a pair

of heavy glove fasteners, one section 45 whereof

includes the rounded heads which do not mar
the surface of the leather when the glove fas
teners are inoperative and as body I0 is swung
about the axis of rivet 36. Rivet 36 and the
sections 46 and 48 of the two glove fasteners are
far enough apart to permit ilexing the material
from which projected portion I8 is made to allow
disengagement of sections 46 and 48 when such
