I am recently in the market for a custom carry setup. I'm looking for horse/cowhide holster with exotic accents. If you can help me with ideas, I would appreciate it. Also list any personal experience you have with the companies.

Concealed carry? IWB, outside the pants, shoulder? Cowboy action shooting? What kind of gun?

I'm having lou alessi make me a couple holsters for a gun he doesn't have a mold for. His customer service and help in doing so has been outstanding. I know he has a lot of work so I'm not sure how custom he'll do, but I sure like his service and his leather. I've also seen some really nice stuff from tucker gunleather.

I have the black sharkskin rig, holster, belt and mag pouch and I love it.

I have a custom rig made by Rhome of http://www.desbiensgunleather.com/index.html
here are pics of my first rig from him:
He recently posted pics of some stingray holsters/belts/1911 grips he made... fantastic craftmanship and quality work. You will not be disappointed!
P.S. I have 3 more holsters on order from him :evil:

I've done holsters with both cowhide and horsehide, with exotic accents including shark and stingray. In fact, I'm working an IWB left-handed tuckable Glock 19 holster with a thumb break and snap loops, with stingray trim on the spring-steel reinforced mouth and the belt loops right now.
