Swing anna miss.. not quite what I was aiming for.  Still, it'sa 8 outta 10, so just a couple tweaks to go ..

Used this W/C skirting, since for some reason it isn't 'hardening' like W/C normally would --- so putting it to use here!

Okay, tha's better.  Went with the compact model this time, but the fit and style are certainly "tightened up".

As of this morning, just over 81,000 free pattern downloads.  That means -- well -- very little :rofl:  Still, good to see folks getting some use out of those!

Pic is pretty crude -- didn't bother too much since this thing is a LONG way from dry, much less ready to go.  

Full size Sig P320 :

I particularly like the yellow belt. Kind of a Batman thing. Really sets off the blue gun!

You're right, a red holster would have been over the top.

Yes, I AM a smart a$$

'Yellow belt' is spelled S C R A P L E A T H E R :)  I have an embossing wheel thingie, and that's a piece of scrap I used to center it.  Now, it gets used to shape the loop in the back (long as it holds up).

Better pic now available (show me section).

I'm actually researching a double mag pouch with just a belt loop on the back - like this one.

Billy, I know that pattern comes from the 1911 style patterns sold at Tandy leather. I hope that helps a bit. I picked it up here st my local shop for 6.00.

Some of these patterns in the process of becoming "kits" (glue not included ;) ).  Natural Hermann Oak A-grade, though I may add some drum dyed down the road. 

Front and back are die-cut, 'extra' piece included for reinf panel or dye test (you cut to suit).  More dies being made ...

Yeah, mostly :whistle: No glue included, anda fella gotta git his / her own awl and needle.  But there's a price for the "set" of stuff plus pattern, and a separate price for 'hey, i already paid for that pattern once jus gimme the leather stuff" ;)

Course, nothin' as fancy as stretching / shrinking / distorting that tooling design from page 18 of Stohlman's "how to make holsters" -- that's not mine to sell and anyway that's been done to death already :rofl:

Lame.  Just lame.  Just a lousy 96,348 free holster pattern downloads.  Pathetic ... :whistle:

Oh, wait -- that's just the free ones, so it's all good.
