Monday Musings

People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
-- George Orwell

Good morning! I hope you had a good weekend. I came across the quote above and it got me thinking. How often do you think of the US Marines, Army, Air Force, Coast Guard members that are out every day fighting so that we can have a nice life?

I do not want to be callus but my guess it not too often unless you have a family member who is deployed or there us a new story on the news about the loss of our troops.

Here at Stallion we think about the troops on a daily basis because we do have family fighting. Please if you see a soldier or other service man, go over and thank them for their time, give them a pat on the back, shake their hand, and thank them for their sacrifice as well as their families.

Winter Camping

Good morning! I hope your week is going well. We are back and settled in from the SHOT Show but after all that hard work I felt like I need a little vacation.

I am a big fan of camping in the warm summer months, but to be honest had never heard of winter camping or thought about giving it a try.

As I was perusing the weekly report from the Wisconsin DNR I noticed a small article on it and now my wheels are turning. I could do a little snow shoeing, or cross country skiing or perhaps bird watching.

Do you camp in the winter? What special equipment do I need? Where do I get water? There is an excellent article from Princeton that answers these questions and so many more. Frankly, if you are camping this winter as a seasoned pro or a newbie, this article would be the first place I would go for information and resources.

If you are interested in winter camping in Wisconsin, the Wisconsin DNR provides a list of sites Winter camping sites here. And Gander Mountain provides a winter camping check list that you can print out to be sure that you have everything you need to have a comfortable and safe trip.

If you camp in the winter I would love to hear about your experiences! Please let me know where you go and what you do while you are there.

Have a great week! And as always if you are looking for 100% American Made leather and ballistic concealed carry holsters, flashlight holders etc, please do not hesitate to call 414-764-7126 or visit our web page at

Smith&Wesson Bodyguard Concealed Carry Holster

Good morning! I hope you are having a great week! We are still getting settled from our BUSY week at the Shot Show last week in Las Vegas.

Were you there? Did you enjoy it? Did you know that they had record setting attendance?

At the Stallion Leather booth this year we tried to focus primarily on concealed carry holsters. We offer a wide variety of concealed carry holsters but one of the most popular from the show was the S111 which fits the Bodyguard from Smith and Wesson and the XD-S .45 and 9mm. too name just of few of the guns it fits.
If you are looking for a concealed carry holster than contact Stallion Leather at 414-764-7126 or visit our website We would be more than happy to help you find the right holster for your needs.

Have a great day!

Good morning! I hope that you are having a great day! If you are here at the SHOT Show I hope that you are not worn out from the 12 miles of booths! I do not know if that is totally accurate but that is what I have heard while out walking the show.

To say there is a lot to see would be an understatement, frankly I do not think that I will be able to cover the whole place simply because I am so busy at the booth.

We are however out talking to all of the gun and light manufactures to see if there are any guns or lights that we need to make new holsters for.

Well, better get back to work! Stop by and see us!

SHOT SHOW Food Ideas

Good morning! Today is the first day of the SHOT SHOW! I though this article from the SHOT Show Blog would be helpful if you are searching for food while walking the booths.

"Everybody needs to eat, especially those that are walking for miles each day at the SHOT Show. You’ll need to re-fuel at some point.

Here are a few options for attendees looking to grab a bite to eat during show hours:

The Palazzo and Venetian: Don’t forget that the Sands Expo is connected to both the Venetian and Palazzo hotels. Both offer a ton of amazing dining options. For example, the Grand Luxe Cafe, owned by The Cheesecake Factory, is open 24 hours and the food is great. If you’re looking for the character of a neighborhood diner, minus the kitsch, FIRST Food & Bar is located in the Shoppes at the Palazzo. Another great option is Cafe Presse, which has a convenient location in the Venetian corridor. Click here to see all the casual dining options at both hotels.

NSSF Member Lounge: Yet another perk for members of the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the NSSF Member Lounge (sponsored by is located in the Lido Ballroom on Level 3 of the Venetian. It’s a convenient place for members to sit down for lunch and take a break from the show floor.

Convention Center: For those that don’t want to stray too far from the show floor, there are a number of places to eat within the convention center area."

Enjoy the show and don't forget to come to visit us at our booth, we would love to meet you and show you our new line of concealed carry holsters.
