    Made a new prototype

    My Step son's birthday is next month so I decided to make him a holster for his M&P. I got the snaps a little too close on this one, I'll have to adjust the pattern for the next one. Overall I think this Prototype turned out pretty well.

    It's also the first time using a blue gun to form the holster.

    It's been pretty much trial and error, I've always liked making and fixing things and I'm still learning.

    Nice. I'm working on a snap one right now. I went with double snaps and that took a bit to figure out. Mine are side by side as opposed to offset.

    Are you hand stitching or machine?

    My last blue guns came from this guy. Really fast turn around if he has them on hand, I got them in 3 days. But we are both in NC. 7-10 days if he does not.
