    Hey guys, I decided to join THR after a lot of searches leading me back here time and time again!

    I've been playing with making holsters for about two months and have a few to show off, critics welcome :D

    For any of you looking, I finished these over the weekend and am really proud of them!

    Very nice work, myself I hand stitch around each belt loop to give a bit more support. Also are you lining your holsters? What weight leather did you use?

    It's getting better, thank you for the compliment though. I have played with stitching around the belt loop but most of my designs haven't left enough room to do so without stitching being on top of other stitching. Once I find the styles I like the most I figure that I can go back and tweak them with some 'adjustments.'

    I haven't tried lining any yet although I have done a few smooth side in just to see how it would do. It seems most of the affordable lining material can trap dirt/grime and lead to premature wear - I decided for now I'll learn how to get good with it as is before I try to go to that extent. I do hand burnish the inside of the holster now though, then follow it up with a good conditioner after it's been sealed and some 'Johnsons Paste Wax' per recommendation from a holster maker for the snug areas on the inside.

    Sorry for the long winded reply! All of the leather is veg tanned Hermann Oak 7/8 oz.

    Have a lot of gear hanging around. Don't like the lining. Maybe double layer but no lining.

    Those are very nice rigs.

    Do you drill your holes?

    I appreciate it, I have drilled holes for stitching if that's what your asking about. I also have access to a Tippmann Boss but that is extremely limited so I do most of my stitching by hand.

    I was able to work on a few for friends over the weekend, a railed 1911, Beretta 92FS, and a standard 5" 1911.

    Thanks! My head gets a little too swollen when I look at where I started at. I've finished up all of my 'favors' and work for friends - my next project is a full blown belt/holster/sheath/mag pouch/ and sling that are 'matching.'
