    Made it Yesterday

    I am new to this forum and thought I would post a couple pictures of an IWB holster I made yesterday. It is heavy cowhide lined with pigskin, I am into it $7, and so far it feels quite comfortable. I made it for my Ultra, but my Les Baer TRS fits it nicely as well.

    Thanks. It would work nicely, but I am not in the business. I like it's minimalist approach and function.

    Looks good and should work for you.

    One thing to check...
    Make sure the pig skin was veg tanned and not chrome tanned. Or you can make rust.

    For a quickie holster, it's quite nice...I prefer my holsters to be 'boned' to the exact firearm, but you did an outstanding job.

    Good multi-gun design, and at $7 that's about $20/25 less than similar + S/H off the net. You might want to set a price and go into production. You know we can never have enough holsters...

    Nice Holsters

    MNBurl,
    Thanks for the tip on the pigskin. I went to your website, very nice holsters and reasonably priced.

    I have my G36 in one of similar design right now, but I bought it. I like the design for IWB carry. It looks like you did a great job on it.
