Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

As good as it's going to get.
Fits the pistol, and that's all I was aiming for.

Dang nice it is GBob01. Yup working with leather is fun and rewarding. To get good at it requires some time but that all comes with practice and keeping at it.

If there is a 'next time' try using a slit punch instead of the holes...u'll like the results...and maybe a slightly thinner lace thong! Tandy has a rawhide lacing material that wold be nice too...and they have the slit punches. Overall though, your results look nice and are quite serviceable...miss my old Cold SA...learned a little on it from Arvo Ojalla, an old studio stunt man and technical trainer for actors.

I've always found it easier and more satisfying to just go and buy what I need as far as holsters go.

Not every gun is easy to buy for.

As usual, you'll end up with a drawer full of holsters when you buy 'off the shelf'. Nationally know holster makers have a long wait time, once you order from them (up to 18 months from what I hear).

I have a friend that lives in Loyal WI, that's semi-retired Military & LEO, and is an exceptional leather craftsman. He makes the holsters I buy. I recently purchased a Sig Sauer P365XL. He has a 'blue gun' for a 'regular' P365, but not one for an XL.

I asked if he could build me a holster for my XL and he told me that he ordered a 'blue gun' and won't proceed with the build, until he receives it.

He's built 3 holsters for me and one for my son. All are a few years old now, and the fit, finish and stiffness, are like they were when new. The only difference is, these days, the 1911 slides in the holster a little easier. But, it didn't fall out when I went ass over tea kettle one day a couple months ago.

I made myself a leather belt in the hobby shop at Ft Carson half a century ago. I still have it.

I buy the holsters I need same as other gun cases. The m60 rides in a padded Pelican case....when it comes out to play. The days of hanging it over the rear window of the pu truck......say are over.

I used to use the auto shop to work on my CJ-5. Almost dropped it off the lift once, though. Considering I'd never used a lift before, and didn't receive any instruction, I'm glad I didn't. But I got a real fast hands-on education.
