Well, that is good to know for the next sling I do. Good info. So the lesson here is, if asked for measurements, give them. I did try it out on a few rifles at the local pawn shop, and it was tight, but worked.

I mentioned in the coffee thread, that I was asked to make a holster for one of my friends at the pawn shop. She is a lefty with a LCR38 snubby. Nothing fancy about it, which is why I was able to crank it out overnight, while I had two other holsters drying.

Nice job, Capt Q!
It has a clean utilitarian look, which I like.

Howdy Capt. Q,

Nice work on the Holster. Good design.
You need to learn to like all the little everday things like a sip of good whiskey, a soft bed, a glass of buttermilk,  and a feisty old gentleman like myself

Thank you folks, for the kind words. I nicknamed this holster "The One Night Stand"... cheap, easy, and done with it the next morning  ;)

This really wasn't meant to be a concealed holster, the Lady wears it open carry, because she works in a Pawn Shop. But, she also didn't want anything fancy, just comfy and secure. This is replacing a fancy IWB holster, with no restraining strap. It was comfortable for her to wear, but not secure enough. Specially when she wore stretchy jeans. The pistol fell out too many times. With this holster, the strap really isn't necessary, it holds on pretty good.

Fresh off the bench, a S&W 586 holster. This is for a Dad for Christmas, he is a retired Dekalb County cop.

Nice holsters, CQ. I like them both. Cool way to put the shield on the one.  8)

Thank you sir. The shield was my 3rd attempt, which was why I decided to inlay it, instead of carving it directly on the holster. A 2x3 patch is easier to replace than an 8x12 piece.

Fresh off the bench, #3 in the past week. A 1911 Mexican Loop. I always wanted to make one of these, although I had hoped it would be for my own 1911... but still don't have one. This was fairly simple to do, until I went to test fit the customers pistol. His 1911 has a rail, and I wasn't sure how much room to account for it. I didn't leave enough. So, I had to build a thick fuller for the belly. I'm hoping that does the trick.

Well, you're busy. that'll work fine. Looks good. The rail shouldn't take too much extra room. If it does, you can probably still wet mold it to fit.

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.
