Description

June 6, 1961 A. J. LECLERC MOLDED PLASTIC PISTOL HGLSTER Filed May 22, 1958 INVENTOR ARMAND d. LECLERC ATTORNEY United States Patent i 2,987,229 MOLDED PLASTIC PISTOL HOLSTER Armand J. Leclerc, Leominster, Mass. Ray Plastic Co., Mill Circle Road, Winchendon Springs, Mass.) Filed May 22, 1958, Ser. No. 737,009 1 Claim. (Cl. 224-2) This invention relates to a molded plastic one-piece pistol holster which is made fiat and thereafter is rolled over, in one portion thereof, to form the pistol-holding member, said molded blank being provided with an elongated slot for the reception of a one-piece cartridge-holding member also plastic molded, and the belt portion of said holster being provided with a series of parallel slots having enlarged ends for the reception of an adjustable belt member, the latter being provided with an enlarged head having partial apertures at the side edges thereof for engagement with said slots selectively for adjustment thereof.

Other objects of the invention include the provision of, a one-piece molded plastic pistol holster made of flexible plastic material in fiat form and being provided with the usual metal buckle or the like as well as with permanent fastening means forming the pistol-holding portion of the holster and a new and improved onepiece, multiple cartridge-holding member.

Other objects and advantages of the invention will appear hereinafter.

Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, in which FIG. 1 is a view illustrating the blank as it is molded, part being broken away;

FIG. 2 is an edge view showing the cartridge-holding member;

FIG. 3 is a bottom plan view thereof;

FIG. 4 is a detail view illustrating the cartridge-holding member secured in position on the belt portion of the holster;

FIG. 5 illustrates the adjustable belt member; and

FIG. 6 is an enlarged detail view illustrating how the adjustable belt member is secured with respect to the belt portion of the holster.

In carrying out the present invention, the same is molded in a single large completely fiat blank which is illustrated in FIG. 1. This blank includes an apertured buckle tab at 10 integrally secured to an elongated belt member 12, said belt member 12 having an elongated slot 14 therein. The belt member 12 extends in one piece to the opposite end of the holster, terminating in a belt member '16 having a series of parallel spaced slots 18. Each slot is provided with enlarged end apertures 20 for a purpose to be described.

Intermediate the ends of the belt member of the holster, there is a laterally-extending enlarged portion which is also fiat and is generally indicated by the reference numeral 22. It will be seen that the member is relatively narrow at the portion 24, widening out at 22. forming a kind of flap 26 which is adapted to be bent over at the dotted line 27 onto the enlarged member 28. In this position, the same can be secured by any desired means such as rivets 30, providing a pistolholding portion. A slot at 32 may be molded in for the purpose of receiving a small belt which extends around the pistol-holding portion of the holster.

It is desired to be emphasized that as so far described the holster is molded in one complete flat piece and this may be stippled as illustrated in order to simulate leather or the same may be made plain, as for instance in the area 34 to facilitate a fast-draw. Also, the opposite side of the holster (not here shown) may be substantially completely plain so that it will not irritate the person of the user thereof.

Patented June 6, 1961 The cartridge-holding member is also molded in one piece and this member is shown in FIGS. 2, 3 and 4 as having a series of cartridge-holding loops 36 therein and each loop is separated by a fiat plane bottom portion 38. The bottom portions 38 have a thickness comparable to the thickness of the holster itself and the entire strip shown in FIG. 2 is adhesively moldled by the edge portions thereof as at 40 to the edges 42 of the slot 14 so that the cartridge-holding member appears essentially as an integral part of the holster itself.

In FIG. 5 there is shown an adjustable strap which comprises a molded plastic elongated flap member 44. This is provided with a series of holes 46 for engagement with the tongue of a conventional buckle which is to be applied to the tab 10. The belt member 44 is provided with an enlarged head 48 forming a T and at the junction of the T with elongated member 44, there are a pair of enlarged openings 50 which collaborate with enlargements 20 in the various slots 18 to form a kind of dove-tail engagement for securement of the strip 44 to the end of the belt member 16 to provide for an additional adjustment of the length of the belt as compared with the adjustment indicated by numerals 46.

The tab 10 of course is to be folded over also and fastened by a rivet in order to hold the metal buckle referred to. It will be seen that this invention provides a very inexpensive plastic molded holster of the class described which is made quickly and easily and is easily assembled. There is no sewing of any kind required and it is merely necessary to assemble the parts as above described in order to provide a satisfactory, very inexpensive completely plastic holster.

Having thus described my invention and the advantages thereof, I do not wish to be limited to the details herein disclosed, otherwise than as set forth in the claim, but what I claim is:

An article of manufacture comprising a one-piece member of plastic including a belt member and a holster member, these members being integral and in a single piece, the belt member having an elongated slot therein, and a one-piece cartridge holding member secured in said slot, said cartridge-holding member being provided with a plurality of integral loops extending laterally to one side only of the belt member, said cartridge-holding member being made in wave form, each wave forming a cartridge-holding loop and the trough of each wave being secured to the slot at the longitudinal side edges thereof.
