Made a few OWB holsters
My wife was out of town, so, I was busy this week making some OWB holsters. I generally carry IWB mainly because I have no Belt holsters, so, I decided to make a few for my carry guns.
Let me know what you think.
Sig 250 subcompact:
Sig 250 Compact:
This one accommodates Glock 27 and Glock 19:
They look pretty good to me. The one thing I noticed on your Sig 250 was - it will be difficult getting a full grip when you draw.
Other than that, keep up the good work.
Wow. Those are pretty good. Makes me want to ask you to make me one.
nice, I like the one that accomadates the glock. I like the texturing you did to it. very nice work.
Just decided to make a few holsters?
Well, I'd say you did quite well...nicely done!:yup:
That could be done, and I will if you want one, but I'd rather you check out this site: www.bernieholster.com

Thank you for the pointer. The picture makes the holster look flat, but the belt tab is curved and turns in toward the body and away from the grip, which makes the grip fully exposed and easy to purchase. However, I will always consider what you said, and be certain to allow sufficient room.

Very cool stippling you did on them.

I've wrassled with that myself, and finally came upon a solution that works for me. I use file folders to make my patterns. After I've traced the outline of the pistol itself, I CAREFULLY draw a stitch line parallel to it. I make the distance that of HALF the width of the pistol at its widest point, PLUS the thickness of the leather, plus about 1/16th of an inch just to be on the safe side. This theoretically allows the stitching to pretty much exactly follow the actual outline of the pistol, while also allowing me to stuff the gun into the damp holster for molding without the use of a vice, a hammer, an anvil, both hands, both feet, and five assistants jumping up and down on my shoulders. (Yes, I've stitched them too tight before)
Nice looking work.
....and it'll get even better.... (we won't talk about my first few holsters)
