    Looks very nice, I don't mean to be critical as I know you take a lot of pride in your work and you sell these but why doesn't it cover the trigger completely. It looks like the trigger is exposed. Otherwise it looks very nice.

    The trigger is in the fired or safe position. When a round is chambered the trigger is not exposed. I dont have holsters pre-made and in stock. My holsters are made to customer specifications. Some request more or less coverage, sweat shields, etc. Many times a customer will show me a picture of a holster and say "I want something like this".

    This one turned out pretty well, for a 6.5" N-framed Smith.

    Some more of my recent work.

    1st pic - Ruger GP100 4" 357 Magnum OWB
    2ndpic - Ruger GP100 6" 357 Magnum
    3rdpic - Ruger GP100 6" Scoped 357 Magnum
    4th pic - Bandolier
    The bandolier is primarily used for hunting and range use. Both GP100 6" holsters will attach to the bandolier. So will the Vaquero and Single Ten holsters in my previous post. It was originally made specifically for the Scoped GP100 as this revolver weighs 59 ounces with the scope. I use it this way for deer hunting and also switch over to the Single Ten holster for hunting rabbits and tree rats (squirrels). It is versatile and has 8 inches of adjustability built in for wear over a heavy coat or by people of different sizes.

    If you're gonna carry a 1903; you might as well do it in style.

    I like it, but next time consider bringing up the leather back until it completely covers the gun butt. That way, when you carry IWB the whole pistol is protected against contact with your skin, sweat, etc. and you skin from abrasion by the gun butt.

    You also want to have a cam -- a leather button or ledge that engages the safety lock and keeps it positively engaged.

    Thanks guys! The coin shop was closed. They will be added soon. :)

    Interesting suggestion on a full coverage back. Never considered it. This one is so comfortable at the 4-4:30 position. Didn't notice the pistol ever touching my skin. With the form molding, that safety isn't moving while holstered. I vac molded it with the safety engaged.



    Good to have options:
