    Made a couple of pocket holsters (pics).

    I picked up a S&W M60 but don't have a holster for it. So, I made a couple of pocket holsters. One for my M60 and one for the P32.

    I have not finished the edges and trying to decide if I should stain them or leave them natural. I went with a rough out on the outside to keep the pocket holster in the pocket.

    Tell me what you think. Should I dye them or not and if so what color?

    Nah...leave them in their natural color....better to see them age gracefully.

    On rough outs I have always liked the natural look. It will darken, but will always look natural. Nice work.

    Can you make one for a J-frame and send it to me for evaluation?

    Nice job.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    This is good news for anyone looking to pick up new skills. I also got back from Tandy leather with some more goodies so look for some new OWB and IWB for my M60!
