    I don't know if it's an improvement but it's very nice!

    Since I have several VM-II's, if I got another IWB holster I would be looking for one that seats the gun a little deeper. Just a thought.

    This rig is for a 92F/M9. It is cow with Bali shark on the mag pouch and holster; the belt is a type of reef shark from Mexico. (They are two seperate orders... but I thought they would look pretty cool together.)

    The shark on the mag pouch is the natural shape. I only trimmed it at the top; I thought it looked pretty cool that way.

    The belt is my second shark belt; I am wearing the first one because it had some stitch imperfections. (I needed a new belt anyway. LOL.)

    The shark design on the holster is inspired by Eric from HBE Holsters. Eric was kind enough to look at some of my work and give his opinion. I took his advice and changed some things and feel better about myself and my work. However, there is more work and learning ahead.

    I look forward to the comments and would like to thank my customers for their imput and the advice of other holster makers who took the time to talk to me and share some of their knowledge and thoughts.

    Cheers.





    Very nice rig Dave! The shark from Mexico is very nice! and much easier to work with in my opinion.

    Yes I know, I went to purchase more today but someone named Dave just bought the last of it.

    Unfortunately the Mexican skins are too short to make belts with without splicing.

    Anyways nice work!

    Shark

    I have received 2 so far, that are almost 50" at their longest point. No bs... One was amber and the other was black. My distributor really hooks me up. They are great.

    Good looking work.

    I'm starting to dabble in exotics now. Now just need to find a good supplier.

    Dave,
    I must say the difference is night and day. You know the ones I am referring too from the past. Your stitching has improved 1,000% just the overall appearence is night and day. I say you're heading in the right directions!! I can't see the edging very well in the pics but I am sure it is good. You may be hearing from me soon, I have another project I am brewing over.

    FYI

    I appreciate the compliments! Thank you very much.

    I am not taking on experimental projects right now. I am working on a few prototypes that have been on the back burner for too long. I will slightly modify my rigs but I will not build something that I do not offer, at this time. I am one guy and I am trying to not only improve my products (Thanks Eric for all of the advice the other day!!) but to try and get new, improved items to offer.

    I am taking 2 volunteers to try a new product. If anyone is interested, please PM me for details.

    Cheers!

    Just to clarify something: I am still taking orders for custom holsters. However, I am not taking orders for things I do not make on a regular basis. Example: I will lower the horns of my IWB to suit the user; I will not create a totally new (to me) IWB for someone. I am sorry but there are only so many projects I can undertake. Once I get caught up, I will gladly try some new or hybrid rigs. I hope I did not mislead anyone with my statement. If you have a question, please PM or email me. Heck... gimme a call for that matter.

    Dang! I'd show up and BEG for some of your knowledge and volunteer.......if the Navy paid me just a little more and "she-who-must-be-obeyed" would loosen the leash just a tad. I'm only just up I95 from ya too. Oh well............

    That's a sweet rig Dave!
