  1. Cheyenne Holsters

    Yes the tooling pattern was in the pattern pack.
  2. Cheyenne Holsters

    Hello kiwican The design of the Cheyenne stops that from happening, if you look between the 2 loops there is a bulge, if made correctly this will lock the skirt and pouch together. Regards Forester
  3. Cheyenne Holsters

    Hi dikman After I have stamped the pouch I try not to wet it again, don't want to lose any detail, I find the pouches bend into the slots which I pull up when damp, I then insert the pistol to reform. These holsters are made from Will Ghormleys Cheyenne pattern pack. Regards Forester
  4. Cheyenne Holsters

    Hi garypl True we can't own a real handgun, but a lot of people own replica's or blank firers. So I think mainly collectors or people who do re-enactment buy them. I sell on ebay, so I have sold quite a few holsters through the ebay shipping program, I have sent holsters to Germany, France, Finland and I have sent a Cheyenne gun rig to Italy, I have even sent a John Wayne gun rig to the USA. I also have a few replica's of my own as can be seen in the photo's and a Colt Umarex which is a .22 pellet air pistol, which I have sold rigs for in the UK. I don't sell as many as I would like but I do sell them. Regards Forester
  5. Hi All Prototype of Doc Holiday's chest rig. With pattern kindly provided from this thread. Regards Forester
  6. Hi All New Cheyenne holsters to fit Colt SAA with 5.5 and 7.5 inch barrel and Colt Navy. Regards Forester
  7. Hi AA3JW Keep at it, your holsters look serviceable and wearable, they will get better with practice. I was looking back at some of the first holsters I made and I can't believe that I actually sold them. Regards Forester
  8. Hi All Four holsters made from Will Ghormley's 1911 pattern pack. Regards Forester
  9. Hi All Another 1911 Holster, made a few weeks ago. Regards Forester
  10. Hi All This is my version of the Wild Bunch Holster, made a few weeks ago. Regards Forester
  11. Hi Dwight I have been after a Doc Holiday shoulder holster for a long time, if you manage to get one could you pass it on please. Regards Forester
  12. Dwight Thanks for the time and effort you put into the drawings, I now fully understand. All the best Forester
  13. Thanks Dwight Some good information there, just what I needed. I would never have thought of gluing the entire length apart from the money section. Doing it that way I imagine makes it easier to sew up. Still a bit confused how you attach the belt keeper though. Regards Forester
  14. Hi All A customer has asked me to make a John Wayne suede out money belt, having not made one before I thought I would ask all you kind people. What thickness and what kind of leather should I use, do you soak it first then fold in half and let dry, would you oil the suede side as you would a normal belt, and is there any other thing I should look into before I start making. Thank you all in advance. Regards Forester
