    Holster maker help please?

    Ive got a Tandy leather catalog and they have some kits for leathermaking. I really dont want to nor do I need to make a holster since Ive got a guy to do that.

    I want to be able to take some 1.5" strips and make straps that fold over and snap like a belt. Im going to use these with my OWB holsters to create a holster that does OWB and IWB.

    Ill need to be able to remove the strips so Im thinking snaps but could use chicago screws as well.

    So what from the catalog do you suggest for making these as far as materials from the catalog?

    Take a look at Rocky's "Black Ops" holster. It does what you're trying to do. Maybe you can get some ideas from there.

    That would be PM'ing a moderator or admin. OR:
    A link to the leather catalog or pics of what you are intending might help us to make suggestions for you.

    I've played around with leather some, made some guinea pig holsters to test certain modes of carry and positions before I paid big bucks for a "Real," holster. I've also made some in-pocket mag carriers that no one will ever see! The basic process is not complicated, but as is the case with most crafts the devil is in the details. If your town has a local leather shop drop by and talk to them; most are quite helpful, and holsters are a common subject.
