    After searching for a nice holster for my Ruger Old Army I finally decided to try to make one for myself.

    I've never done any leatherworking before but I figured it might be something I'd enjoy...I was right!

    I found there's a Tandy store not too far from me so I went up there, bought some leather and some tools et voila!

    a hand-made-from-scratch, calfskin lined, custom fitted field holster for my favorite gun!

    The outer layer is 8 ounce oak tanned cowhide and the inside is 2 ounce calf and hand stitched throughout. Though there are a few mistakes I'm quite happy with the outcome... especially since it's my first attempt.

    I went a little overboard buying leather so I plan to keep busy making several more holsters this winter. Come spring, maybe I'll have a custom holster for every pistol I own. :D

    Here's some pics.

    Very nicely done. If you are going to make a few more and would like a pattern for an old school holster let me know. Something like this for theROA IMG_0336.gif
