Law Enforcement Duty Gear
Uncle Mike Michaels founded Michaels of Oregon in 1947 when he began manufacturing sling swivels for the gunsmith trade. Michaels of Oregon became an entirely different company when, in 1982, the SIDEKICK holster was introduced, putting the company into the handgun accessory business for the first time. An important move in the development of the Uncle Mikes holster line was the introduction of Uncle Mikes Professional duty and concealed carry holsters for police, security and military officers. Uncle Mikes line has now grown into a complete collection of holsters, belts and accessories for law enforcement we know today.Manufacturing of all soft goods including nylon and leather slings, Sidekick and Uncle Mikes Law Enforcement holsters, belts and accessories and many other items are done in their plant in Meridian, Idaho.
