The” HipShot rig” as it is called is in honor of SASS’s own SASS # 7
Life shooter and member of the Wild bunch HIP SHOT!
HipShot came to me and said doesn’t anybody make an 1800s traditional
looking rig that was worn in the 1800s any more. So I asked him “what yu
lookin fur” . So he showed me a rig he had worn for many years and went
on to explain who made it and the year approximate that it had been
made. So I looked him in the eye and said (with a little pause) I can
make you something like that; but!!!! He said but what ? I said I will
do it, but I will also make it as competitive as anything out there
which includes all the other lines we make. He said how are you going to
do that? I said first we are going to make some minor changes to the
style you are wearing so you will be able to not only draw the gun out
with lightning speed but also get it back in at the same speed. Hip shot
says but when I pull the gun out the holster currently it collapses so I
have trouble getting it back in. I laughed at him and said and that is
why you came to me! That is also when I let him know I was going to
metal line the holster in between two laminates of leather but you will
never know it was there.
Once we got all that done I then said I would follow through and do an
authentic style carve that was traditionally used in the mid to late
after our collaboration I created for HipShot a 100% traditional
looking rig that looks like you just rode into town in 1878 to finally
take that bath!
is because of HipShots love for both the sport and the look of the more
authentic wrangler of the era, right down to the wooly chaps that this
rig now exists. It was also his love for this style rig that allowed us
to create it so we wanted to do something special for him
we asked and he humbly accepted and the rig has now been named in his
HP (high performance) HIPSHOT Rig!
Thank you HipShot
