I wanted to get some opinions on some of my recent work.
I would like to know good and bad points, please. (Keep it clean though. )
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.
I like that leather......very nice work!

I'm impressed! I'll let you know via PM whether my lobbying efforts are successful (the CFO handles the budget!). You do good work my friend!

Thank you all very much!
Sniper, I understand. The CSM runs things here as well. LOL.
I can work with ya though... don't worry about that.
Hey Dave, beautiful holster man! The grain of the shark is awesome. I like the cant of the holster and the angle of the mag carrier, it all looks very good and seems like they would ride very well. The only thing I would change a little on it is to cover the trigger gaurd a little more. That is just my personal preference, I am always particular about. Again, nice work on the whole set up.

You are right about the trigger guard, I should have. I think I was afraid to have too much coverage because the guy has really big paws. I should have adjusted the cant and so on...
Absolutely stunning! What a fantistic rig.
I like it! Nice work!
Thank you Bruce, I appreciate it!
VERY COOL, almost a shame to have to conceal it !
You know, I don't think you should worry at all about the coverage of the trigger on your holster in this situation. The Beretta double action first pull takes approx 15-16 lbs of pressure to pull a very long trigger path. If the holster were for a single action pistol like a BHP or 1911 pattern I might consider more coverage, but really what are we talking about here. It's IWB, the triggers covered and how likely is something going to get into such a small area and actuate a ND.
Just my 2 cents
There are alot of mixed feelings, as far as I can tell, regarding the trigger guard. A friend in LE has his TLE RL with light and the trigger is 1/2 way exposed and he likes it. My brother, at times, wants total coverage due to the fact he may use it while hunting.
I think it is something I should ensure I ask the customer while taking the order. I would rather be safe than sorry, so to speak.
Ironically, the gun shown is a Taurus knock off that I carry cocked and locked... I have no trouble with that or a similar (1911/HP) because that carry configuration is second nature. My first carry gun was a 1911, so...
It's food for thought for my building and something I didn't really think to ask.
Thank you all for your feedback and thoughts!! Keep 'em coming.
Yeah, I try but some leather is nicer than the other. LOL.
I take the back end of the boning knife and push/smooth as best as I can. There is alot of weight on the leather from the foot; more than I could probably put down.
But great point!! I will try and find a different method to rid that. That does annoy me because everything looks smooth until you look at the walking foot tracks. Like an elephant thru the mud. LOL.
Thanks. This is great; alot more things to put on the board to remember!!
