    Nice work! It's an addiction...

    I like that you gave yourself the option for crossdraw!

    For a cheap alternative in coloration, try some Kiwi Brand shoe polish.

    Donít mess with the guy who can barely stand up. His remaining options for self-defense don't include your survival.

    This is one of the things that make DC such a good forum. We mostly get along pretty good and the members all enjoy our topics. Good first holster by the way.

    Great job, my fellow holster makers have already provided some good advise. My first holster sure didn't look that good. I gave it to the dog to chew on.

    If you contact cement (not rubber cement) the pieces together, you won't need to double stitch IMHO. Keep trying and let us know if you have questions.
