Haven’t been around here much, but finally had a chance to make a holster for a friend for Christmas. Just a simple pattern to carry at the range for a .357 Rossi. 6-7 oz lined with 1.5-2 oz tooling pig.

Love how it turned out. I really like how the coloring turned out on the back.

The tooling all looks cool too, it's just the backside jumped out at me.

Beautiful holster!  I really like the contrasting colors.

That is an interesting border. Is that an inverted meandering stamp?

Outstanding! I'm going to do a lined holster, soon, I really am. Question, do you rely on the stretch in the leather for the hammer loop, or something else? I've only done the snap type retainer.

Alpha2, the holster is a snug fit, the hammer thong is just for peace of mind and cosmetic I guess..... I carry a Ruger New Vaquero and haven’t had much stretching problem in a bout a year of use. Thanks for the props to the rest of the fellers. Oh, and by the way alpha2, I’ve been working with leather for shy of three years in a very limited time, I haven’t made an unlined holster as of yet.... even my first atrocity of holster was lined :) !

I just finished one up not long ago but no where near as nice as that!  at looking at your location taint much to do out them parts cept maybe head on down Juarez Just kidding.  But there is a lot of open space down there, if it come natural your darn good at it, and if some book learning and do it yer self then good on you.  I got me some kin not to far but not to close either if they were closer Like to come buy for a lesson er 2.
