A couple of holsters I made for the Colt 1851 Navy. The belt is only for display.

Nice, but a percussion cap revolver with cartridge loops on the belt?

Hi, in the intro I put 'the belt is only for display'.

Ok, NOW it makes sense - but I think you would have been better off just showing the holster, seeing that the belt isn't meant as part of the rig.
 (Yes, I know, I'm being picky).:)

Really nice work, the patterns are solid, the carving is clean and done well, the stitching is super clean, the edges are great and the finish fits perfect! Whenever you post your work the thing that always just amazes me is how clean your toe plugs are!

All the best, Josh

Hi Josh.

I learned from Will Ghormley's web sight, If you look at the making of the Hand of God rig, he has some good pictures of how to sew in a toe plug, they must be good pictures because I have only ever sewn in 6 toe plugs.

Regards Forester

I carry a percussion pistol on a cartridge belt, personally, because I also carry a 1894 Winchester Trapper when I'm working out on the land. Looks a little weird, but serves the purpose.
