  1. I didn’t read every reply so this might have been covered. At a time a few years back I was making holster day in day out. The best informative video on western gun belts and holsters was done by bianici(sp) you were able to get it through leather crafters and saddle ans journal at one time that’s where I got my soppy and patterns until you learn what a good holster looks and fits like. Unless you going to make gun buckets and call them holsters big difference. ‘’the other thing I found extremely helpful was a rotary tool that would hold a 1/16” twist drill bit unless you have a heavy duty sewing machine that will sew 1/2” leather. You can use an awlbut the drill bit is easier and faster. You will ever know if done correctly. the last thing I recommend is blue gunforms of the models you plan on supporting.
  2. What you make out of that dear hide? Don't say you threw it away
  3. Call leathercrafters and saddle mans journal and see if they can find the article they published several years ago. They print out the complete article weather it's in one issue or spans several for you. You pay them for the article and not the complete issues.
  4. i like the way you do the connect allowing for multiple holsters to be used with it. I would like to see your pattern. One thing I don't like being of a larger frame and caring larger guns like a XD 45 is the narrow straps most use why not make the straps larger wider where you can and taper down to the buckle size or other hardware so the straps can spread out the weight better than just the narrow straight straps they did forty to fifty years ago which were based on designs prior to the turn of the twentieth century.
  5. Would you be willing to meet along I 10 or I 20 west of you meet me somewhere between van horn or El Paso? Plus how much you wanting for it?
  6. I think yours is either a darker brown or black the back piece need to lay against the leg instead of sticking out like it is now once you fix that you'll be able to tell if you need to trim it.
  7. Actually as I recall the xd45 is wider than any other XD. I bought my xd45 compact years ago when they came out with it. It has the standard barrel with a shorten grip the subcompact has both a short barrel and short grip
  8. New Mexico, Alamogordo, why you got one for sale?
  9. Cost isn't the problem it's the quality and usability of the one they have. I have the cheap one and modded it over the years but would love one that you sit on and you foot opens and closes it not a bolt something that uses a strap to the latching mechanism and it latched with your right foot. Plus the clamp can rotate maybe. There's a good pattern in a old public domain boo k for a farmer or ranchers that do their own leather repairs, build all these devices for around the place.
  10. Is the bond and lcp w/ laser max still available better yet the bond with the longer barrel
  11. Couldn't remember what they went to after the cast iron ones so yes and no
  12. I'm thinking the angle is of some but not seeing it worn in the same fashion so I'm not 100 percent sure. I'm looking at where and how the back lays behind the front holster. It's close but I'm thinking the back piece it's exact No offense intended just my observations. I'm having the same problem with a holster I'm working on because I'm angling the holster but having a very hard time with the back piece and belt stabilizer.
