    My latest holster project!

    I needed a holster for my new S&W M60. I been making some different holster and wanted a easy on and off holster with belt loop snaps.

    Here is my first crack at it and it works great for a carry gun. The belt and it were dyed to match.

    Somebody's right on the very edge of having a holster-order-backlog. They keep getting better...and better. I'm just gonna sit back and watch this!

    Very nicely done.

    No problem with drawing and one handed holstering!

    You talented guys! For me to attempt something like that would be a waste of good leather. It looks great. Good work.

    This is my wife's favorite holster so far. It looks good with the belt and I want to make a speed strip holder next to match.

    I'm planning to make a left hand version of it to make a good backup holster for me.

    I notice a lot of the holster makers with this design sort of round the tops of the tabs. I think it would look good on your version, too. Shape of the hammer guard is exactly what I'd like. You could probably sell a box of these.

    I have found the shape is enough to protect, but not to much that it gets in the way of grip, drawing and re-holstering is assisted by it.

    It is fairly light 5 to 6 oz. The next one will be doubled up along the edge would be the only change.

    I'm planning to fix the finish if I can because the patten leather look is "toooo" shinny for my tastes. So, I'm going to buff the finish and put on a more mat finish. I'll post updated pics when done.
