Cowboy Holster

Recommended Posts

Here was my first attempt a western style piece with some stamping a bit of tooling.  It was made out of some leftover saddle skirting from a past project and lined with 3 oz veg tanned.

Good job penguin . . . 

Now all you gotta do is make the belt to go with it . . . what is the dye color you used??  It . . . on my screen . . . looks like Feibings British Tan . . . but I just wondered.

May God bless,

Dwight

Looks awesome.  I bought a few rigs from Classic Old West Styles in El Paso a few years back and your holster looks as good or better.

Thanks!   Fiebing’s light brown dye.   
 

The matching belt is the next piece on the agenda.

Beautiful piece! Reminds me of a Mexican Drop Loop knife sheath.

No kidding! You put a Fanner 50 and a roll of caps in that baby and I'm ready to go!

Yeah, I know who Hopalong Cassidy is. It's that bad. But my fave cowboy hat wearer was Sky King! Because, "out of the blue of the Western Sky". Guns, and airplanes, that's me.

The best part of Sky King was Penny! :cowgirl:

I knew someone would say that, but I'd forgotten all about Penny, as girls weren't that important to me at that age. It changed later, she must have been in my subconscious though, as my first girlfriends name was Penny. She'd be about 70 now. Kinda having a hard time picturing that. (Not that she'd recognize me!)

Penny'd be 90 now, not 70. Sadly, Gloria Winters passed away in 2010.

Great looking holster.  Tooling and basket weave are spot on and I like that color as well.
