  1. I can give you a bit of advice. Lay your handgun on a sheet of posterboard or a file folder and trace it's figure with a pencil. Then, draw the holster around it, allowing enough extra room for the gun's width. Cut it out, lay it over your leather and trace it. Voila, you've made your own pattern. Hope this helps and Merry Christmas, Greg
  2. Looks like a great job for a first holster!
  3. ....since I've visited here. I still need a LOT of practice and instruction on carving and tooling, but I thought this turned out pretty cool anyway.
  4. This works well for concealing... ...and something like this if you're feeling fancy.
  5. Tooled .45 LC Rig

    Oh my! That is simply amazing!!!
  6. I actually finished this one with paste car wax. I've carried it quite a bit for several years now, and it's seemed to have held up as well as those finished with acrylic.

    I love your work. Thanks for sharing.
  8. I think it looks very nice. Did you make it backwards? I'm left handed as well. I would be very proud of a rig like that.
  9. Luger Holster

    The Luger is a heck of a lot easier than the Ruger 22. It's front sight is a gigantic hook, that will hang on something, no matter what you do.

    Cool. I made one last year for a guy who still hasn't paid for it come to think of it. Now I know there are a total of two pancakes for Lugers in existance.
  11. Mine aren't fancy, but I make them from one piece of leather. Fold the belt loop over, glue, and sew. Then fold the front over, glue, and sew. Then I wet mold them to the mag. The one pictured isn't for a doublestack mag, but I think the basic idea would be the same. As others have said, a manilla file folder is good for drawing and cutting out a pattern.
  12. My Latest Speed Rig

    Beautiful! I've found the arrowhead pattern in the basketweave on the belt to be very tedious to execute. You did it well.

    I've been racking my brain trying to come up with a birthday present for the wife. THANKS!!!!
