    Very nice. I can tell you also there must be room in the holster business for more manufacturers. I've had a holster on order with Don Hume since January and the latest promise date is June 25 --- wow!

    Looks good. You might have problems with the sharp points. They tend to get smashed over time.

    Anytime. Hey I forgot to mention, from what I can see your edges look great. That was one of the hardest things for me to figure out when I started. Heck, I am still learning all the time.

    If that's your first try you need to be in the holster business. Looks great.

    From what I understand with revolver holsters the top of the cylinder is a difficult thing to deal with. Seems you figured out how to deal with it. Looks good. I have yet to try a dedicated IWB holster.

    Looks great!
    For my own personal needs, I would want to see a lower-riding design.
    Typically, if the cylinder is about level with the belt line...you have a winner for revolver IWB carry.

    Keep us posted!

    An intruder will be incapacitated by tear gas or oven spray, but if shot with a .357 Magnum will get angry and kill you.

    ^^^^^YEP^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    And to touch on the "sharp edge" comment.........

    I agree in that the very top of the holster{POINTED TIP} pointing toward the grip, covering the trigger guard may wish to be a little rounded.
    Also, are you losing a bit of strength with the gap between the main body of the holster and the front strap??????

    Other than those points, which may or may not be biggies(because I have no knowledge of holster making) it looks fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
