 The type of construction of this holster - what is it called?  It looks simpler to make than the typical double layer holster construction. 

What would be the disadvantages of this type of construction?

Biggest disadvantage is over time the single layer wings will get floppy ane sloppy, . . . not hold the gun up like it should.

AND, . . . there really is no ADVANTAGE to it other than having saved a few square inches of leather, . . . that would probably not be used anyway, . . . just because of the way it is cut.

I would not make one like that for myself, . . . and a REALLY would not make one for a customer.

May God bless,

I can see where it would work with something like an LCP or Kel-tec, but not for something larger/heavier. If the back piece was thick enough, it wouldn't get that floppy, but then if you were going to go that thick, why not just do the two full size layers?

I did make an OWB for my LCP, just because I could, but I'll never use it. If I'm going to carry OWB, I'll carry something more substantial.

Better suited to IWB than OWB.  But I don't make my IWB holsters like that either.  It's kind of like a hybrid, but more work.

 Not to be a critical snob but thread is way small for the holes which look like they were drilled out or punched single layer like as said before would not be coming off of my bench unless it's IWB small of back, period... floppy holsters lead to possible disaster. That one is unsafe in my opinion get it wet and its a done deal...
