That's beautiful, Skeet. I have always liked his rig. It's so elegant and functional at the same time, especially with the cutout for the hammer. It's interesting how that simple cutout makes the top sides much less rigid.

Beautiful! A genuine pleasure to look at.

Looks great! 100% coverage of clean. It lets the style itself be the most important design element. I like it.

And I got to use the new 'Like' button.  :D

Simple, but elegant. Well done, as always Skeeter. Are you hand stitching or machine?

Hey Fellas. This is my first post here in The Leather Shop. I've been admiring everyone's work here, and I mean to tell ya, you guys are a talented bunch! I'm not even close to your level.

I've only been doing leatherwork for about a year now. I love it and I enjoy being able to make things I need instead of buying them. That is how this rig came about. I needed a new rig, because I switched to shorter barreled pistols. So I decided to make everything myself. This is my biggest project to date. I'm pretty proud of it, so I thought I'd share it with you all. Everything is my own design and I hand stitch. I hope you like it.

Welcome to the Leather Shop, Dave. Good stitching, clean design and just the right amount of tooling detail for black. That's a mighty fine rig. You have good reason to be proud of it.

Hopefully we'll see more of your work in here. 8)

Thanks fellas. I appreciate it very much. I'll post more for sure. I really enjoy the leatherwork. I feel like I missed my calling in life!


Here's a couple other things I made for myself. I needed a shotgun shell belt, so I designed and made this one.




I also wanted to speed up my reloading, when I'm shooting Frontiersman. So I made up these accessories to speed up the process.

There's a little pouch for my brass hammer/prybar, a holster for my Polish Capper and a small cartridge box for my paper cartridges. Also the knife sheath and badge holder. It's like a Swiss Army gun belt! I did not make the rig itself. That is from a Maker in Nevada.

Nice accessories. I like that box for the paper cartridges.

Brass shotshells, too. Great for BP. My cousin uses them in his 10 Ga.

Thanks Marshal. That little box makes things easier. It just holds 12 rounds. Enough for a reload and 2 extra in case they're needed.
I use brass hulls exclusively. They last forever and they're simple to reload. Plus, you get extra "style points".
