Built on the foundation of a third-generation manufacturing business, Flashbang Holsters is the collaboration of his business savvy and mechanical engineering background, and her creativity and enthusiasm.
While Bart grew up square in the middle of his family’s leather belt and holster business, she spent her younger years playing in a band and being a manicurist. It wasn’t until after Lisa met Bart that she started to become involved in the shooting sports and eventually make the decision to start carrying a firearm on a daily basis. As she started trying the holsters that were available to her, she discovered that there weren’t many options to choose from that allowed her to carry her gun on body and still dress in a stylish, feminine manner. After much experimentation, the concept of the Flashbang was born. When Lisa first broached the subject of a bra holster to her hubby, he had more than a few reservations. It took some convincing, be he finally agreed to make some initial prototypes. As word started to spread about this new holster concept for women, they began to realize that there really was a large market for a holster specifically designed for women. In fact, there was such a buzz at the Flashbang’s first SHOT Show appearance, that a call was made to a patent attorney from the SHOT Show floor to begin the patent process! Today, Flashbang Holsters can be found in retail stores all across the country, as well as some of the industry’s largest wholesale distributors. We proudly make all of our holsters and belts in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma - the nation’s heartland! What started as a small family business.....is STILL a small family business! We love our Flashbang family, and the friends and customers who have become part of it. We’d like to extend a huge THANK YOU to all of you!
