    When I first saw a pic of this holster I wondered if it could be as good as it looked. It is.
    The maker is Eric Adams of Adamsleatherworks@yahoo.com. Just starting. Check out his website for an extraordinary video of his process.

    The holster starts out as a piece of Herman Oaks 8/9oz leather. The attention to detail is amazing and is consistent throughout. Stitching is uniform and tight. Finish shows that same attention; down to the inside radius of the belt slots. Boning is deep and precise. Note the integrated mouth reinforcing/ body guard/ belt loop piece; very nicely done. The holster is stiff and tight as it should be; rides high and tight. This holster raises the bar. Comparable holsters are selling $200+ and you will wait a year for them. You can get this one for $70!! Better hurry.

    Your links are not working. They are the condensed version and only send me to the Photobucket home page. Please post the full URL as I would like to see his work. :)

    I haven't figured out how to do that but here's his website which is probably better anyway. Watch his video. It shows him, start to finish, handbuilding a holster.

    Very nice looking ... and priced well at $70

    downsides are they don't make an IWB and their gun list is rather short.

    1911 - 3", 4.25" & 5" barrel
    Kahr P9
    Ruger Single Six .22
    Sig Mosquito
    Sig P239


    But I bet we'll see good things from Adams down the road. The quality looks top notch.

    I emailed him a couple of days ago about my taurus 809. Unfortunatly he didnt have it on his gun list but he was a very nice guy. He offered to give me some pointers on how to make my own. Im tempted to buy a pistol he can use just so I could get a holster.
