  1. Yeah, I saw the shark at Springfield. I just didn't want to drop over $100 for it , as I'm not that good yet.... of course, I could get it for a future date when my skills are better! thanks for the replies
  2. Pretty strange question here, but here it is. i bought an all shark IWB holster from a semi well known holster maker some years back. I never did like the way it fit, and after a few attempts to sell it, it just landed in a drawer. Ive since started to make holsters for myself, and am kind of happy with my work. Can I take this shark holster, and open it up by cutting away the seams, and somehow peel off the glued on shark trim, or is it near impossible? I had thought to use it for some trim pieces on my home made holsters... Thanks for any advice
  3. Thanks again for the help and tips. This seems like a trial and error hobby, emphasis on the error, for me, but it's fun so far. Terry
  4. Thanks Texback,Snubb, and Camano, for your help. I know this was a basic question, but I'm new at this,and want to TRY to do things right. I understand that I'll have to make some mistakes with this hobby before I get good, but I'd like to minimize my mistakes, if possible. Got it oiled up now, and will mess with it more tomorrow afternoon. Another question.... I bought some Aussie leather conditioner... Will that be applied afterwards, as a final finish? Or later, as a "touch up" to keep the leather supple? Or not really at all? Sorry for the dumb questions, but hey, at least I'll gie the people who don't respond something to laugh about...
  5. I've wet molded some leather for a holster. I let the leather dry, and I've now dyed it. The guy at Tandy told me to condition the leather AFTER I apply my Resolene, because the alcohol dye really dries the leather. It seemed pretty dry after the wet molding, if you ask me. It just seems that if I seal it with the Resolene first, how will conditioner "soak through"? Is this the proper procedure?
