30 Lugers and Broomies are now legal!

Yup, the new ammo rules allow the .30 Mauser and Luger rounds to be used! I can use my Broomie Bolo now and can't wait to figger out how to build a useful holster for it.

In the Boer War, Sir Sam Steele carried a Mauser C96. Images are available showing him in sam browne equipment carrying the broomhandle, but so far I haven't found a photo good enough to be able to recreate the holster.  Afterwards, Sam recommended the broomhandle for NWMP issue.  Didn't happen 'though!

It shouldn't be too awfully difficult to make your own pattern.  Sheet of paper, pencil, and the pistol.  Draw a centerline, place the pistol sights down on the line then roll it down to one side without slipping or repositioning.  Trace the pistol and then draw another line 3/4 inch outside the outline of the pistol. Take the resulting tracing and fold along the line and cut out. Voila

Try folding the first pattern around the pistol as a rough check.  Modify as you see fit and plan the holster top contour.  If you want a military flap, then add it.  As this pistol was not general issue there won't be any sealed patterns.  Each owner went to a maker and said "make something to carry THIS, and make it sorta match what the other guys are wearing."

Those are excellent examples John. I really like the one in the first picture, very sharp! And I LOVE the stag grips on the C96!

What era would you assign to this photo ?

Looking at the clothing of the bystanders it looks maybe late 1940's

The Fedora & Panama hat , perhaps  S.  America or Banana republic's   (Cuba , Argentina  Bolivia )

His Belt looks like an Argentinian gaucho belt
when planets align...do the deal !

There is a photo of two C-96 holster in Meadows' "U.S. Military Holsters and Pistol Cartridge Boxes", p329, which were manufactured at the Maestranza de Manila arsenal in the Philipines for the C-96 pistols. Apparently some of these were issued, but others, including the guns were privately purchased by U.S. Army officers during the Philipine Insurrection.  The holsters are full-flap with an extension of the flap that can be buttoned to a stud finial on the holster body.
Stay well and safe! Happy Holidays!
Ride to the sound of the guns, but watch out for bushwhackers! Godspeed to all in harm's way in the defense of Freedom! God Bless America!

He's "Border Al", a SASS shooter out of Colorado.  I have no idea where the photo may have been taken.
