Latest Updates/Mike's Health


With a heavy head and a heavy heart, Mike and I have decided to keep our books
closed for the foreseeable future.  On September 29th, Mike underwent a
procedure on his neck that removed several discs, bone spurs as well as
a fusion using titanium links and screws. 

The outstanding news is, the pain, numbness, pins and needles and general
weakness in his left arm and hand is gone!  The bad news, unfortunately,
is that he is having almost equal(not quite, but close), nerve pain running into his right upper arm and forearm. 

So, that, along with a sore neck from surgery, he is unable to work, probably until the new year, at least.  This along with some lingering stroke symptoms that effect memory and dexterity, this makes even simple things like daily life very difficult, not to mention running a business and creating products.

Mike and I apologize for any inconvenience this may create, but we pray you
understand that this company doesn't move forward if he isn't healthy.

We will try to add a few holster options to the website, if they are easily finished, so be sure to check in with us and we're always happy to answer emails!

Please don't hesitate to reach out with prayers, requests, comments, concerns
or with any questions you may have.  Ultimately, we are here to help
because without you all, we would have NOTHING!

Thank you so much for your patience, understanding and loyalty.  We cannot tell you all what you mean to us!

How and Why We Started BLH

The earliest version of our company was started in 2007 as Columbia Firearm Services, Inc.  Our original products consisted of custom made display fixtures for storage, cleaning and retail display purposes. 

Shortly thereafter, we expanded to custom coatings and stumbled our way into custom holsters after attempting to find solutions that would fit our needs as CHL holders, hunters and hikers all while not breaking the bank.

In late 2011, BLH was fortunate enough to make our way onto Northwest Armory's radar.  Thanks in no small part to a loyal client and one of their fanstatic employees, we have been their go-to Kydex holster maker ever since!

In the summer of 2016 we were looking to expand and got bit by the lightweight AR15 bug.  After some research, our first products were lightweight aluminum barrel nuts for Noveske NSR, Bravo Company KMR and SMOS Arms rails.  We hope to expand our lightweight offerings in 2018 along with building our holster offerings and inventory.
