    Holster like that would look great wrapped around a nice 1911.

    Funny title to this thread. Kydex is good enough for the Glock 29 I own. But can't imagine anything but leather holsters for my 1911s.

    Nice leather work.

    Beautiful work, and I hesitate to offer a suggestion, but I was once advised by an old time gunshop owner that the way to success is "you don't stock what you want, you stock what the other guy wants." The same, I think, would apply to making holsters.

    Dang, I went to Como last weekend and forgot I needed to drop off my lil Colt Woodsman so you could work your magic. Nice looking leather, even if it is for a Glock!

    I didn't on this one, but I'm guessing your looking for how it rides. This is the same style in my most popular configuration.

    Hey Jim, if I were doing this for a living maybe I'd joke a little less with folks. I'm not - and avoid certain areas of the holster market not because of inability but because of the market they bring. Different strokes for different folks..... I don't stock anything at all so it isn't apples to apples anyhow :)

    Not even an invitation to the steakhouse? I thought we were friends! :)

    That blue Glock is one of those solid plastic replicas used for disarming practice (and holster building)? Say it ain't real.

    I feel your pain my friend,,,

    I was once contracted by a lady to make a "Barbecue Rig" for her husbands handgun,,,
    I told her I would need the gun for a couple of days and she agreed to that,,,
    We decided on the type of holster, style of tooling, and price,,,
    Imagine my surprise when she brought me his Hi-Point.

    $375.00 worth of custom leather,,,
    For a $185.00 handgun.

    But hey,,,
    She was happy,,,
    He was very pleased,,,
    I had me a nice paycheck.

    It was a win-win-win situation. :eek:

    Aarond

    P.S. You do nice work my friend.

    Good Lord! :eek:

    I have to say, I would never own one but if somebody wanted me to make a nice rig for their Hi Point, I wouldn't turn them away. I don't think.

    BTW, that's not an open invitation. :neener:

    Eaglestroker, that is beautiful work...lipstick on a pic notwithstanding...now a good Colt Commander in that rig would certainly be an improvement....but beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. Nice work, Amigo....Rod
