Thanks again!
    Waxed thread is what you want. Artificial sinew shows up occasionally, but it has a tendency to slip from what I've been told.
    Leatherworker.net is a good site to check out. A few of us are over there.

    And Springfield leather is a great place to order stuff. Tandy is more to the hobby side of leatherwork. Functional, but not as good quality. Springfield sells some good stuff. Their Hermann Oak is very good. The B grade will spoil you.

    I think the color looks good, no real need to change unless you really hate it. Nice job on the leather work too.

    I've never been a black leather fan; not shoes, belts, holsters or coats. I think the saddle tan looks fantastic as you have it now. Good work there sir.

    Thanks gents. After consideration and a couple days of use I've decided to leave it as is. The holster itself really carries the Beretta extremely well so I couldn't be more please with how functional it is. As for looks, I've decided that the usefulness outweighs the appearance, and being a IWB holster the color is kinda moot. I'm going to try my hand at a OWB for it next and see how that goes.




    Thanks again for the comments and suggestions.
