I have seen several videos where 1911s are being pulled from a vertical shoulder holster and racked on the clock while pointed downrange similar to Wild Bunch ( except for the vertical shoulder holster part). I seem to remember seeing still pictures and maybe even a video of somebody wearing a dual vertical shoulder holster setup with twin 1911 ala Bruce Willis in Last Man Standing. Quite possibly that one was not done on the clock but just either posed for pictures or for fun as it would be somewhat impossible without a third-hand to rack 2 Pistols simultaneously with your hands already full.

In Zoot pulling a pistol from a vertical shoulder holster without sweeping anything is going to be pretty tough to do (but not impossible) but apparently is allowed. Are horizontal shoulder holsters allowed in Zoot shooting?

Ya know Ed ...... it was once figured out ..... a human body is only about 10 or so inches thick.  A two foot bayonets is .... Overkill??

If you actually USE a holster every day where it becomes exposed to dust and grit the felt or suede linings are even worse because they trap grit which then acts as sandpaper against the guns finish. Nice smoothed down leather whether it be flesh or grain side is about as good as you get but my experimentation has actually found a plain unlined holster to have less overall wear on an edc gun.

I work as a contractor as my real job and have an ongoing test with three different holsters and guns and alternated carrying them. One with smooth side in leather, one with suede lining, and the other just a plain unlined skirting leather.

After carrying these guns for years now the gun being carried in the plain unlined holster has the least blueing wear. I believe the smooth leather holster allows the gun to move around in it more causing blueing wear and the suede holster is dirty and gritty inside. The plain old unlined leather holster is the happy medium.
This is where I'm at with it. I don't even offer linings and will only do them when I need to protect from hardware. I prefer pigskin for that.

Well done for a 10th belt, let alone a first!

I'm at that point. I've got tendinitis in my elbows from sitting at this here computer earning a living over the last 12yrs and it's kept me from doing any leather work for months. I want to do more and more with exotic overlays. I want to do linings. I want to do more than just single thickness 12-14oz belts. I've hand-stitched the perimeter of exactly one belt and that was enough. I want to save wear & tear on my joints and I want to do it all faster than I can hand stitching. So I'm looking at machines. The Cowboy 4500 seems like a good place to start. If this goes where I want it to then upgrading to a better machine in the future shouldn't be a problem. For sources I was looking at Solar Leather and Toledo Industrial.

Whatcha think?

Way too much for hand stitching....

I'm inspired by such beautiful work, and may give it a try myself. I noted that on close ups of many of the pieces that there's some staining to the beads that gives them a very aged/rustic appearance, and was curious if this is because they are vintage beads or if people are doing something to stain them?
You can't stain glass after-the-fact and it doesn't change color with age but I have been able to get some "crap" to stick to them and the leather they're sewn to to make it look more aged. Then it tends to wear off the high spots and the effect is really nice on an aged piece.
