Hope it gives someone an idea it was fun
    how did it come out? post some pics? would love to take a gander!

    I get most of my leather from various festivals and "shoots". There is one in Friendship, Indiana that has THE BEST SELECTION OF TOOLS AND LEATHER IN THE AREA. Also, it is sponsored by the MLNRA (Muzzle Loaders).

    You can find great prices and advice from many of the folks that travel around with those things.

    P.S. If'ns you get that way next spring shoot at Friendship, look for the Tipi that sells Tie-dyes and ask for Evil Monk.
    That which does not kill us leaves us broken and bleeding...

    Donít mess with the guy who can barely stand up. His remaining options for self-defense don't include your survival.

    The one advantage may be wait times on good leather holsters,I guarantee as you can tell even the master holster makers are willing to give advice since they have more than enough work to keep them going for years to come.I have been thinking about making a few holsters myself,since I have several guns that need holsters I normally don't carry but might if I had a good holster.Guys like Nate And the other holster makers on this forum are great guys and that's why they get lots of business shoved their way

    Another one! Seriously, though, I will be looking at both of them in depth over the next few days.
