That is really nice. Is it an original design?

Thanks. It's a standard holster of the period based on originals in Packing Iron. If you have a copy, look at page 69.

Looks really good, Skeet. I like the clean lines. I also like the way it covers the hammer spur.

They look good. That looks like the stamp you were going to modify. Did you file off the texturing?

Howdy all. Been away for a while, due to technical difficulties. My hard drive died in my lap top a couple months ago, so I decided to upgrade to a new solid state drive, and do away with that nasty HDD failure. The laptop went south about 3 weeks later, and is "Pushing up Daisies". At least I'm sure the data is safe. Been forced to use my new "smart" phone for web surfing, and it just sucks all the joy out of web surfing. The busted screen just proves my displeasure.

Anyways, I'm in the Leather Shop tonight, so I busted out the Cabo Wabo Tequilla, and hijacked the wife's laptop. I hiave been staying busy, and have a few new things to share. Helpful comments, critiques, or help, is very appreciated.

First up, that belt and holster set for the Taurus 357. We went with mild bling and brown thread. I have to say, even with the flaws, it was likely my best work.

Next up, another one for the same guy. Yeah... who needs hundreds of customers? Just a few like this guy, and you are set for life.
This was a shoulder rig for his Ruger 45 ACP. The man does love him some Ruger guns.

When he asked me to do this, I asked how he wanted it. "Black or dark brown I guess." "Any carving or tooling?" "Well, the only time anyone will see it, is when I'm out with the hogs" I sold him on this Pumba (Warthog from Lion King) idea. As I was working up the artwork, the wife was trying to talk me out of it. Pumba is her favorite character.

Next, another guy like the first fella. He not only has a lot of guns, he is generous to friends, family, employees. For every piece I have made for him, he has had me make 2 other pieces for someone else. I almost feel like he is pimping me out. I imagine the conversation going something like... "I know a guy that makes leather stuff. You like leather stuff? I'll have him make you some leather stuff." Dance, Monkey! Dance!
G30 holster for somebody else. He said "Tool it". I went for something "Sheridan-like". Nope, don't quite have it yet.

One of two 10 shot .270 cartridge cases, since the people he gave the 2 shotshell carriers to loved them. I went slimmer, and less bulky with this.

I'm sorry I almost forgot to mention this one. The fella with the Rugers, asked me to make make a holster for his Ruger .380. Brown. 6:00 position. In Waist Band. I had to call it "The Skidmark". Sorry, I forgot to get pics.

Nice lineup of items, CQ. Well done. You did miss the chance to be the only forum member to post a picture of a skidmark, though. Grin

Here is just a little test piece. My wife does Metis bead work and I have been thinking of adding a piece to a holster.
My problem was how to attach the bead work to the leather so I got my wife to make me a small flower to work with and try some different things, this is what I ended up with. My next one will have beveled edges on the inlay piece and the stitching will be cleaner and not as bright  Cool

She is a very talented woman, these are a couple more.
The blue one is a finished barrette, for her hair and the green one is still a work in progress.

That's nice stuff. For future beadwork, post it here on the "Show Us Your BEADWORK" thread so we can keep it easy to reference.

VERY nice work there Bob! What kind of sewing machine did you use? Are you doing gun leather as a hobby?
