Then I formed it to my Super Blackhawk.

I probably wouldn't form it, if I had it to do over again. But it does keep it from bouncing around in the holster.

If you have a Tandy's/Leather Factory near you, I've heard you can rent time on their industrial sewing machines, too. At least the one in Albuquerque, you can.

A Speedy Stitcher and a dremel drill will do it for me. I put together a used saddle I bought using one. All the stitching had rotted out of it, so I replaced it using one of these> http://www.speedystitcher.com/#the-basics
that's the way I have done it not that hard but does take a little time
