    So more often than not I end up throwing my J-frame in my pants using a Clipdraw when I go out because it is easy and comfortable. I tighten my belt up and it sits pretty secure. Since I want to make sure my "special purpose" stays intact I take the next round which would be fired if I pulled the trigger out. I really hate doing this for a bunch of reasons which I will not go into. I have tried a BUNCH of different holsters and just keep going back to the Clipdraw. So, now I am thinking that if I could just figure out how to fasten a "snap" (I have no idea what they are actually called so I hope you know what I am talking about) to a length of fabric that is maybe a half of an inch thick I could wrap it around the thing and hold the hammer down so I don't have to worry about it anymore. Any help would be greatly appriciated.

    Also, I would really like to try to make my own holsters that I know would work for me instead of just spending money on stuff that might work. Does anyone know where I could find the stuff to do this? Just some sheets of leather and some sturdy belt clips would do it.

    Thanks so much for your help. Every time I post a question I get almost immediate answers from experienced people. You guys are awesome!

    Tandy Leather has a stitching kit and they generally run free classes. So for $100 you can get started and make a few holsters.:)
