  1. That looks REALLY good! Thanks for taking the time to post it and provide some pics from along the way.
  2. Looks good! I would be interested to see how you did your thumb break and what you used for the stiffener.
  3. I've read that if you make the loops part of the holster, the "foot print" of the area you cut out of your hide gets large. Visualize what the pattern would look like - the "rabbit ears" would get much taller so there is enough leather to make loops. This is likely to lead to more waste on the hide you cut leather from.
  4. Looks outstanding! Exceptionally good clean work. I must admit that I'm a little biased since this is exactly what I want to make for myself. Out of all the variations out there, this is perfect to my eye and taste. You did an incredible job! Was this from any of the pattern packs out there?
  5. Nice looking work! I haven't made a sheath, so I don't have any suggestions, but it looks like you nailed it!

  7. I'm wondering what you guys use for the hook on a mares leg holster? This is the hook that catches the saddle ring. I found a pic of one that I think is ideal (the 2 attached pics), but will gladly take any suggestions. I have been pouring over the internet for a few hours and didn't find anything. Much to my surprise, I eventually did find a source for the metal spring clip that *should* work for the covered leather fore grip retainer. I'll post the source so the next person will hopefully have an easier time finding it. If someone knows of another source for those, I'd appreciate knowing that as well. http://www.riverjunction.com/Holster--Spring-Clip_p_511.html
  8. I find the rear section (near the tail) to be more dense than the shoulders. For this reason I prefer it for holsters.
