    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    Thanks, all, for the kind words.

    Click the link DIY Holstermaking in my sig line, and all of your questions will be answered.

    The short version is:

    Molding - by hand, then using certain tools to get the details.

    Sewing - also by hand, saddle stitch style. One thread, two needles. I pre-mark and pre-drill my holes with a very small drill bit prior to hand stitching. Some will criticize that method, but it works for me.

    For me? Two or three days, depending on how much time I have and how motivated I am. I generally work on this stuff a little bit at a time after work or on my weekends. The pros can crank 'em out a lot faster.

    As for how I learned - I took some pointers in some of the basic techniques from my dad a few years ago when I made a holster for a Ruger Vaquero, but what you see above wouldn't have been possible (well, it would've, but it wouldn't have come as quickly) without various write-ups online, discussions on boards like this one, and especially the Holsters & Belts section of Pistolsmith.com where you can wade though tip after tip from some of the true masters of holstermaking.

    Less than a couple of years. Maybe a year and a half? It all started when I couldn't find a holster I liked for a 3-inch S&W Model 65 and a 3-inch GP100. It kinda snowballed from there. I made a Mexican loop type holster for a Ruger Vaquero several years ago, but that was a one-time deal at the time.

    I usually do not comment on the "hobby" holsters as they look such. However, you have made one that looks professional. It looks great to me.

    Regards,

    Do not under rate yourself, that is beautiful work. You may not be interested but you could do well as a business even on the side selling your holsters. If this is one of your (beginner) holsters I would like to see what you could do after some practice. Good luck...

    You can for sure go into the business of holster making. The turn around time can not be worse than the other holster makers turn around promisses that never come thru.
