Some trys at making Brill-like holsters

Recommended Posts

I've lurked here for over a year and found information and inspiration, so I figured it was time to register and put up a post or two.
I favor the holster styles from the 19th and early 20th centuries and after learning the history of "Brills" from "Holstory-Gunleather of the Twentieth Century" I was determined to try some for myself.

All except for the Hi-Power are lined and all are in my daily use rotation except for the small black one that I made for a neighbor.

The three or three-and-a-half welt layers make these tricky to construct and  the cuffs are also tricky as they are set for the specific belt width. I have considerable respect for the makers of the original Texas Ranger "Sunday holsters".

Thanks for looking...

Hi Capt.

Just ordered Holstory.....  pricey at 100 bucks, but that's a little less than fifty cents a page..... what the heck.

Nice workmanship on those holsters.

God bless
