    How to make a holster, useful info.

    Several photos and instructions on how to make a leather holster and finish it. Looks like you will need some leathercraft skills but it looks doable.
    Hope this has not been covered before.

    4-6oz leather is pretty thin--I wouldn't use it for a holster, certainly--but the construction process looks good to me :)

    I usually got 9oz. Not too heavy but very durable. If you're Australian you'll like 12-14oz, crazy buggars!

    I used lots of the stuff there to make my holsters. Using that 4 pronged punch on 2 layers of 8-9 oz leather didn't work too well. I ended up using a dremel to drill the holes.

    I also didn't integrate the mag holder into my holsters because you would have to either set the gun down or reach way over with the weak hand to make a mag change.
