About Our Company

Hero Holsters was founded by Brandon Moore in June, 2013. Brandon retired from law enforcement as a burglary detective on 12/26/2012 due to injuries resulting from an on-the-job ambush. Unable to continue as a peace officer, but being strongly supportive of the right to keep and bear arms, Moore began making and selling hybrid holsters.

A Word from Brandon:

Early in 2002, right after I graduated from the Ohio State Highway Patrol basic peace officer academy, I went to a uniform shop looking for an inside the waistband holster. Not only did they not carry anything at all for inside the waistband, the proprietor almost laughed at me when I suggested that I wanted to carry a Smith & Wesson 5903 inside my waistband. I was told that he did not have a holster like that, and a guy of my size (5′ 10″, 160lbs) could never carry a gun that big, in that manner.

Times have changed, haven’t they? The right to keep and bear arms is in the forefront of public discussion, and responsible gun owners are finally tired of hear the word “can’t”.

I’ve been seeing more and more people here in Ohio get their CCW permit. I love knowing that there are so many thousands of people in our fine country who are exercising their right to keep and bear arms. Anyone who carries a firearm to defend their own life or those of their loved ones is a Hero in my book.

Proverbs 18:10 (ESV)

The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe.

Psalm 18:2-3 (ESV)

The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies.

Psalm 144:1-2 (ESV)

Blessed be the Lord, my rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle; he is my steadfast love and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer, my shield and he in whom I take refuge, who subdues peoples under me.
