Alfonso likes people and he likes his work. He is an expert leathercrafter and maker of fine gun holsters. Located in his year-old North Hollywood shop, Alfonso is one of the top leather workers for the custom shooting trade. He is a craftsman of the old school who learned his trade from his father."
