    My new black gun belt I made.

    I wanted a black gun belt so when I was at Tandy last I picked up all the components (Belt kit). During plblark's last holster session I sized it, finished the nose, burnished the edges and punched the holes (with some borrowed tools so thanks guys).

    I learned some good ways to stain the leather from UBG Holsters and tried it out on the belt and turned out great (Thanks). I put a top coat on to finish and seal the leather.

    I think it turned out very good and works great as a gun belt! :D

    Looks better than a store-bought belt..

    I'm probably enjoying watching the guys here work on their skills and built holsters almost as much as if I could start the hobby myself...plus, I don't have to get dye on my hands or sore fingers!

    Oh...come on!

    If you guys havent gotten multiple stitches in your hands ...dyed your hands hundreds of times with stuff that causes cancer ...found you gun molds in dishwasher (kids) ....dug an edger into your palm, leaving 2 bloody little gouges in your hand ...or the likes.....

    You havent made holsters long enough............

    Shoot well and god bless

    When are you going to do a basketweave or border? That's a really nice looking belt.

    Surgical gloves...that's the ticket! Keeps me from dying myself all kinds of different colors.

    Now if I could just figure out how to keep from poking holes in my fingers, cutting myself, and bleeding for whatever reason.

    If your leather has my blood on it, there's an extra charge.
