I like to try and stay early in my leather gear.
My best,

I like the Wolfs Ears post Civil War half flap holsters and web/Mills style belts. My favorite belt is a web forager with sg and rifle loops. Very comfortable.

It depends on the gun, and what mood I'm in. I never studied on holsters, so everything is interpretive. I do tend to use Al Stohlman's work as a base model for some. I find it is more fun to go on my own path, rather than trying to reproduce somebody else's.

Thanks to Marshal Halloway for finding this. Since my post is the first, I must have started it at one time but sure don't remember doing it. You must have had to dust it off a lot. ;D

At any rate, my rig(s) fall in around the period after the Civil War with cartridge conversions, 1870-1879.

I'm kinda all about the place ....be twix 1870 - 1898

Mostly 1870-79 ... but I have leather for my SAA circa SpanAm w/ web belt
Punitive War leather for my 1911
and WW1 (original) for my recent aquired 1917 Luger.


I do not own nor desire the first busquardo drop holster , or any Tom Threepersons style's
when planets align...do the deal !

Photos of your rigs would be great if you have any.

I could either blow up the place with pictures, or let you see the stuff already on my website. www.smokewagonleather.us .

My favorite sort of splits two categories. I prefer 1890ish but range all the way from mid 70's to turn of the century. I also make some that fit into early 20th century but stay away from the hollywood stuff.

I'm with CQ.  Way to many items to show here.  Better off with my web site.

I can't help it, I like most everything.  However, my favorite time periods are the California Gold Rush era and the 1875-1885 period.

Thank you Sir, I'm just faking it. Really. Someday I will figure it out, hopefully before my eyes and fingers give out completely  ;D

I started this business in 1978.  Hard to believe I've been doing this full time for the past 41 years.  I still love it, even though my fingers are sore and my eye sight has gone down hill, so I know what you mean.
