  1. Lots of buffalo hides were used to direct power in our industrial revolution. Belting driven equipment.
  2. They are not mistakes. They are the unique characteristics of a handmade item. My attempts at basketweave were so unique that i stopped trying.
  3. Lowes or a hardware store with a good faster selection should have them. A grinder or a file can make the heads fit in the fastner .
  4. I got a better belt. The holster stopped rubbing and now doesn't irritate.

    Awesome ;)

    Minneapolis has a violence problem, primarily in one precinct due to a gang war. Minnesota is basically a safe place to be. Never lived in St Cloud, but it is still small town USA and it takes a while for long time residents to really accept new comers- and college students are always new comers. It helps to be Norwegian and to like lutefisk. You are in driving distance of good hunting, bird and fur, and fishing. Last time I drove through, I saw a few exotic bars by the road side. One went out of business-speaks to the quality of their acts. In another month or so, get Deep Woods Off and keep it handy. DEET is your friend. Otherwise. low brass 7 shot will work until the big ones hatch.
  6. A hardware store like Lowes that has assortments of hard to find items. Usually found in display boxes stocked by the nuts, bolts, and assorted metal stuff. Some of the faucet washers may also work.
  7. I made one of these for my Ruger Commander. Very comfortable carry holster. Getting to where I don't even think about the carry gun being there. If I catch another cow, I'll give the Avenger style a try. Thank you for the pattern.

    Ruger P85 Holster

    It's a hand made work of art. What you, the maker, call a mistake is actually a feature making it unique. Just don't point it out to everybody as a mistake.
  9. Everybody here has a box or drawer filled with practice holsters they really don't want the world to see. You don't know what its going to look like until you try. I have a dozen or so, and have given a few as gifts, and I don't feel comfortable showing my attempts. But I can see almost every flaw in my holsters. Next one will always be better.
  10. It's a feature, not a mistake. Works for Microsoft.
  11. I didn't know rattlesnake was common in Sweden. Beautiful work. The stitching is really nice.

    Glock Gucci

    Beautiful holster. A shame to wrap it around a Glock.
  13. This makes real sense. You may also consider using a camera to record the condition of the weapon, and a lockable secure storage area. It's what can be proved in court that counts.(I was going to make a comment about conservatives and justice vs volume, but that made as much sense as the comment about Democrats)
