  1. Hello all! well its finally happened. Someone has asked me to build a a pancake style holster for a Sig P226. I have watched plenty of builds and read what the experts here have to say. This will be built without a thumb break. I'm intending to use 7/8 or 8/9 cow shoulder, wet formed as tight to pistol as I can make it for good friction fit and canted to likely to a 15 degree angle. I think I'm looking for some guidance on weather I need a stiffener on the front and also ive read and seen many opinions on how close/far out the stich line needs to be from the molded part. Any advice welcome!
