Welcome to Meco Pocket Holsters

About Us

Beginnings

 

Meco Pocket Holsters was founded in 2008 by my Dad, Robert Locke of San Antonio, Texas. A retired Postal employee, He owned and operated a successful custom welding shop since 1995 (R.L. Welding) He took up custom leather holster crafting as a hobby and learned from one of the Masters of the industry, RJ Hedley of Hedley Holsters. In a very short time, He was turning out some very professional holsters with careful thought on form, function and quality. He began offering his creations on the Seecamp forums and He was selling them out as fast as he could make them. His hobby has become a passion which he passed on to me, his son Tim.

I, like my Dad, believe the key to success is in using only top quality materials, maintaining the highest standards in quality of workmanship for every piece, providing excellent customer service, and clear, timely communications.   


Legacy

 

For those that don't know my Dad, (Meco) Robert Locke passed away suddenly on September 18th due to pancreatic cancer. He was 69 years old. I miss him terribly.

My Dad and I were friends as well as father and son. I was born 6 days before my dad turned 16. So that meant we kind of grew up together to some extent, which in turn meant we stirred up some trouble that a father and son probably shouldn't. All in all I wouldn't do any of it different if I could.

As time would have it as we got older and my job took me far from home we didn't see each other much for quite a few years. Well believe it or not, it was a menudo recipe that got us back in touch. (That is another story though) Anyway Dad told me about how he went down to Florida and learned the art of making Pocket Holsters from RJ Hedley. He was so passionate about it, it was contagious. Soon we were hanging out in the shop together and he was teaching me. He started out giving me some tools and some leather and having me do some small things. I got help from others in the leather community also and then it just grew from there. Next thing I know I was doing some of my own work. Like I said, Dad’s passion was contagious.

It was Dad and my dream to actually be working together one day. He was actually looking to sell their place in San Antonio and move up here around Tyler to actually make that dream come true. Well, needless to say life had other plans. The last time I actually got to talk to Dad was Memorial Day weekend. It was a good time. He would get tired easily but we made the best of it. On Memorial day before I left to come home he called me in the room and told me that when he passed the Leather Shop was mine. It was a bitter sweet moment. Bitter because I would much rather have my Dad rather than his stuff and Sweet because he had the confidence in me that I could do it.

As most that knew him would tell you he was a good man. If Dad considered you a friend then you were his friend in every meaning of the word. He was Loyal. Well, here’s to you Dad. I still hear you while I'm working with the leather.
