The one on the left shows the boned, inner face of the holster in natural cowhide, and the right one shows the smooth, outer side of the holster faced with what I'm fairly sure is African Bullfrog skin (though it doesn't say it on his site, Mark posted that photo somewhere in the past and said that's what it is).

    I think the color is "Denim".

    Very highbrow, isn't it? By the way, I wonder how big a bullfrog has to be to yield a usable hide; do they grow big enough to provide sufficient skin for a larger belt holster?

    Let me explicitly state that the above photo is Mark Garrity's. I hope it's okay to post it for informative purposes- I'm a little new to pic protocol, it's the first time I've ever posted one.
    I didn't check this thread for quite some time. STELLAR photo. I will be getting one in bullfrog, it is officially settled! Thanks, Lima!

    Wink Go for the Shark!

    Limatunes:

    Knowing nothing about the holster making process, the consensus is that shark is a great choice. It's also gorgeous, and QK's recommendation to get the matching belt is quite the idea! Having said that, I haven't seen shark skin shoes or purses anywhere

    All gentle gender based teasing aside, I personally like the idea of the shark. Have fun selecting.

    Oh, but wouldn't that look GREAT?!?! Matching shark skin purse, shoes, belt, holster and mag pouch?!?!

    All the girls would be drooling with envy.

    LOL.. The belt and mag pouch... I'm getting tempted.

    Awww heck, I might as well do it.

    I think I'm definitely going to go with the shark skin on the loops (if Kevin can do it).

    Thanks guys!! You're the best!
