Thanks. I'll take a look. Yes, since you aren't used to either way, it may be a fine way to do it. I can see benefits to that type of swivel knife. After some 50 years of doing it the other way, though, I doubt it would be beneficial for me to change now.

Yeah. I doubt it would. I am trying all the things I can to see what I like and am comfortable with. Some I will like surely and some I will not. All part of my learning and growing experience I suppose.

That's true. I've tried lots of tools to find ones I liked.

Here is a little holster for a Heritage Bird Head Model with a 3.5" barrel. The holster is comfortable in the right strong side or the cross draw. I wore it all day yesterday doing some ranch duties and it felt good on the hip.

Nice! You have that BW down. BW makes a good 'duty' holster. It looks like it rides just high enough, too.  8)

Thanks. Lots of people like basketweave, myself included. You’re right too, they make a good looking dusty holster. Will fit in with ranch duties well I believe.

I've got one of those Birdshead Heritage. That holster is just perfect for it! Well done!

1911 basketweave done in a modified Threepersons style but with a covered trigger and also a double magazine pouch.

These were the first magazine holders I done and overall I would change some things going forward but they are functional and will serve the purpose.

How do ya'll go about making magazine pouches?

Looks mighty good, Rube. The basketweave is a good look. Nice work.

Here's how I make mag holders. These are loosely copied after the Pre-WW2 military style, shortened and without the flaps. The corners of the double pouch piece are cut so there isn't a lot of molding to get them to fit a mag. The back gets folded back down and stitched across the bottom after the pouches are stitched on. Also, the pouches are 3-4 oz leather while the back is thicker.

Thanks. I like your design. Mine is all 8-9 oz leather but it is a softer leather.

I will try something similar to yours next time. When you cut your front piece for the pouch; did you cut it larger than your back or the same size and then mold it around the mags?

Thanks, you'll find them an easy design to assemble. Make the pouch piece wide enough that there is no stretching of the leather to get it around the mags, just wetting and folding. I made a practice piece from single layer cardboard to get the dimensions. If I can find the patterns, I'll give you the dimensions.

Thanks, Skeeter.

Rube, I looked yesterday and again this morning but haven't found the pattern yet. I still have a couple places it might be.
