    I recently got married and moved in with my wife. Unfortunately all my gun projects have been put on the backburner.
    I'm not even sure where the stuff is stored in the house...:(
    Needless to say, I won't be making any holsters for a little while.

    When I finally do start making them I'll probably make them for:
    -S&W J frame
    -Taurus Mod 85
    -Sig P225 and P228
    -Ruger GP-100
    -Ruger LCP
    -Kel-Tec P3AT

    That will be it because I don't have any other guns that people would be interested in.
    I may make other models depending on what my buddies will let me borrow (possibly Glocks, XD, etc).

    I'll definately update this thread and put them up for sale in the classifieds when the time comes.

    It's been a while sine I've made some holsters. I just noticed Alabama Holster company has quit making their "Appendix" model and now offer the "Offside."

    :scrutiny:

    Anyway...I'm going to make a batch for J frames this christmas break and will probably list them in the classifieds.

    Well, it takes about an hour to make a $50.00 holster (if you take pride in your work anyway). Subtract $15.00 per holster for materials, insurance, advertising, etc........."Big Bucks"?....No....I guess I could hire Mexicans to do the work and buy materials from China to cut costs and increase profit margin as some do but as I said I take pride in my work and I enjoy what I do.

    I did not quit making the AAH it is just on a different page as I updated the website and moved some things around.

    It is now here:

    Good luck with the holsters. The one you made looks like my Offside model which I have been making for three years or so. Several other companies have been making it for many years. It's a great holster for the J frame.
