I used, and modified, one of your patterns to make this, my first 'real' holster for a fella. Two layers, lined. Hope to do more in the future. Thanks for all of the info you share!

About to get started again, after a long absence, building Jeff’s pancake pattern for the Glock 43 holster. Jeff cut a parts kit for me back then and I’m now checking on what I need to get started so ordered some Barge All Purpose Cement as a starter since I don’t have any contact cement. 

Now for some suggestions on a punch I have been wanting, if you would, on the size of an Osborne #151 Bag/ Oblong punch. The belt I would like to use with the holster measures 1-1/2 inches wide x 7/32nds thick. Looking at a catalog I see Osborne has a 1-5/8” x 7/32” oblong punch but wondering if I should go to the 1/4“ which would make the oblong 1-7/8 inches long.

Jeff, hope I haven’t posted this in the wrong thread. Looking forward to getting back to the project.

P.S. Wishing you all a blessed evening and day tomorrow.

Well, SHOOOT - I cudda punched the slots if I knew that!  I had slot punches made by Sandy 'n' friends at INTL DIE and by the foiks at USA Cutting Die (TX custom)-- both work well.  Mine are 1.5" x just under 1/4", so when I burnish the slot I END UP with 1/4" wide.  You could get away with a tad wider side to side, but I like em close vertically.

Don't remember what I paid fer 'em , but I'm pretty sure it's LESS than those osborne punches, and mine actually cut :o

Ran into a fella at a gun show yesterday --- said he just bought a holster from somebody else for a pistol that I am working on a design for.  Pretty new gun.  So I said 'cool-send me a picture of it'.  And gave him my card with the phone num on it.

But instead of the pic of the HOLSTER I thought he was gonna send, the guy sent me a screen shot of the web site where he got it.

YIKES!  Those designs look real familiar, considerin' I'm NOWHERE NEAR south carolina :o  

Seriously, fellas - those designs are FREE and I MEANT that they get used.  And nobody needs to give credit for the designs, I've never even asked that.  But do you know how SAD you look when you're all up on the web site proclaiming them as your OWN original design? 

MAN, my regret here is that I won't be there to see that guy's face when he gets to MY site and sees the same designs, done better...and for almost $100 less :rofl:   Probably just as well I didn't see the site until after I left, or I likely would have corrected that guy's information right there with 100 other people.
