    Flap Holster

    Classic holster lines, very well made. Very Nice. I would be proud to own such a piece.
  2. I'm in agreement with DisplacedLouisiana.....the pictures I see look like a stitch line around the toe. My vote is it had a toe plug.

    Rifle cuff sliding

    Pin it in place with a hole for the sling swivel stud to go though....it won't move forward or back
  4. I'm afraid I am of the school to carry one at the ready with spare magazine(s) available. If I need to transport many others a backpack will do nicely, with the guns wrapped in pistol rugs. I know that isn't the answer you are looking for. While working I sometimes carried a small 380 auto as a back up piece in the pocket or a shoulder rig, but I don't think that is what you are asking either.
  5. I like these a lot...good looking and practical as well. Yes I like thumbreaks.....if you can put a 1911 in a cowboy holster (Wild Bunch) you can certainly use an imminently useful thumbreak with a SAA holster.
  6. I pity the poor guy lugging around two of those all day. Nice work.
  7. I love it, both the old Iron and the new holster. Thank you for sharing.

    Small Revolver Holster

    That is absolutely first rate.....not to sure about the pink camo on a handgun, but love the holster. LOL
  9. Don't store brass cartridges in leather. Nickle plated cases fare a little better.
  10. Now that is a thing of beauty. Would love to see the N frame in it. Very nice indeed.
  11. I would think a half or full flap holster would be the ticket.
  12. Al Stohlman and his wife were wonderful leatherworkers and great teachers...but looking at his holster designs I wonder just how often he carried a firearm. It might be heresy but his shoulder holster design is an implement of torture and sticking the bbl. out the end of the holster seems contrary to one of the basic purposes of gunleather. I understand it is popular on TV, but I will take mine full length.... ;-} The customer pays the piper so he gets to call the tune.
