it looks great to me
This is a discussion on DIY Holster... Boy I miscalculated this one. within the Defensive Carry Holsters & Carry Options forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I hate it when I draw up a pattern, cut leather, stitch it up, and don't realize until I'm ready to mold that...

I hate it when I draw up a pattern, cut leather, stitch it up, and don't realize until I'm ready to mold that... I made it too long!
Some quick work with the knife and dremel, and I made a slight... uh, modification...
I was going for something more like this one I did for the M&P 9...
But obviously something went horribly wrong!
This is actually the first pattern I tried and cut leather on for the Glock... I actually set the unstitched leather aside for a few weeks because I came up with another pattern that turned out good, but I was hoping this one would be a winner. Oh well. I'll probably still use it!
I'd wear it. PM me and I'll give it a good honest trial critque.

Looks very darn good.
Looks like it works.

That looks great - where do you get your leather from - Tandy or one of the big shops?

Your "foul-up" looks better than many other holsters on the market.
Looks good to me btw do you sell any of the holsters you make, 'cos I would luv something like that for my Browning or XD service.
I agree with everyone else, they look great.
I wish my mistakes turned out like that.
There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

you mean that's a mistake? i like it. you should call it the "Manta," or something; that's what it reminds me of.
Looks like you might have a good pattern for the Glock 17 instead. You should have sold that one and started again. Still looks good though. Nice work.

Where self preservation is concerned, if you're not cheating, your not trying...
Hummm... looks like a pretty good "jury rig" to me!

Thanks all for the kind words! To answer a few questions...
I use Tandy. Pretty hit-or-miss on finding a quality hide, but this is the last holster I got out of a good hide. The latest one I'm using leaves a bit to be desired. I'd love to find a source for some better quality and more consistent leather.That looks great - where do you get your leather from - Tandy or one of the big shops?
I just make 'em for myself. I have no desire to make it a business.Looks good to me btw do you sell any of the holsters you make, 'cos I would luv something like that for my Browning or XD service.
Hehehe. Thats kind of what I was thinking.you should call it the "Manta," or something; that's what it reminds me of.
This would definitely be a good G17 pattern. That's why I'm not getting rid of the pattern. I might want a G17 sometime down the road before mags are banned again!Looks like you might have a good pattern for the Glock 17 instead.
