Thank you sir. The rail looked like it added an extra 1/8th to the sides and bottom, so I added a 3/8th thick fuller. Made it a little difficult when it came time to slip the holster through the loop. I'm not sure if I should have made the skirt a little wider near the slits, it looks a little weak there.

Here's a combo phone and gun pouch.  It's made of upholstery leather.  Made this for my old phone, the new phone is a tight fit. I have to make a bit bigger one.

I just finished this yesterday. It's a wrist watch fob. During the summer I don't like wearing a wrist watch. Saw a picture of one of these in a Tandy ad.

Howdy Silver Rings,

Looks like you have been busy. Nice work. Thanks for sharing it with us.

I like the closure you put on your phone & gun pouch.

I have been making belt wallets for ten years or more.  Sold a few, mostly just trying to make some thing that is comfortable to me. Been making the phone / gun belt pouches for seven years. I am still trying to improve my design.

Here are some pictures of the belt wallet I am currently using.

Nice work, SR. They look good.

I like the combo phone/gun pouch. If the phone gives you any grief, just toss it on the ground and plug it. Grin

I didn't use to carry my phone with me much except on walking the neighborhood with my wife.  When I made this pouch with Velcro for fastening to my belt it made it easy enough I carry now when I go out anywhere.

Yeah, finding a place to carry a phone can be a bit of a problem on warm days. Other than a back pocket in your jeans or a cargo pocket, there aren't a lot of places for one. Especially with the newer phones. Looks like a good design.

New holster for a Ruger LC9S. The guy asked for a left hip holster, got through cutting out the leather, and noticed I cut it for a righty. Dang lefties get me all confused Wink 6 Oz leather, 3 oz lined, saddle tan dye, retaining strap w/thumb break.

This was the second attempt, I did cut the first one for a righty. Works out ok though, because I mentioned the mistake, saying that if he wanted to wear this gun on his right side, I already had the leather cut out for it. He is going to take it too. My new friend, he works in a hunting store, and has a good collection of guns because of it. I told him, you keep buying guns, I'll keep buying leather Smiley

Well, there you go. Just tell him to buy a second LC9S and he can wear both at the same time. Cool

With no formal training, I make holsters, and make the patterns as I go. What is it that you find interesting about it?

Well, he wears the LC9 on his left hip,for hogs, and a Ruger 22 on his right hip for snakes... and this is the holster I made for that gun-

Nice .22 holster, there. He uses a 9mm for hogs? I'd think that's a bit wimpy for the job. Those things can be tough.

Thank you sir. I agree that a 9 isn't quite like a scoped out SBH, but it only takes a .22 in the right place to drop a hog. But hey, who am  I to argue details of a hog hunt? I'm just in it to make some spare change selling holsters Wink

@TenWolves, I'm still interested in your full thought on that LC9 holster. Hearing "it looks nice" feels good, but I don't learn anything from it. If there is a strong point or a weak point, I really want to know what it is, so that I can adjust the next time. Like I said, I have no formal training, I have read up on Al Stohlman's Holster book, and make up the rest as I go. When I first started doing retaining straps, I thought it would be cool and different to do a 3 strand mystery braid on the strap. Many people said it was a bad idea, it could catch on the gun. So, I don't do the braid anymore. On my shoulder rigs that I got from Stohlman's book, I didn't like the plain round yoke piece that holds the straps. So, I modified it into a skull, and that has been a hit. So please, give me something I can learn from?
