This is my first post, thought I would share my first batch of holsters. I always read great feedback from y'all and thought I would solicit the same. The Dk Brown 1911 was my first attempt and the black was this past weekends project. Still having trouble mastering the dyeing technique. I wet form, treat with mink oil, then prep and Dye, and then seal. I just don't think the dye is taking well. Could be the quality of leather, as I'm just starting with the Tandy 7-9 oz half shoulder special.
