Show Off Your Non-Cowboy Stuff Here
« on: June 25, 2012, 08:58:45 pm »
We're going to try something different here. This forum is for cowboy or CAS related leather but occasionally something is made that's a cross-over item that pards want to share. Maybe it's a modern design with cowboy elements in it or a cowboy item with modern touches. Let's post that kind of thing here. Threads that get started that should be here will get moved by the moderators. This thread is on a trial basis. Let's see how it works out.

Thanks,

Marshal Will

From Dusty Ed's thread. His photo is below :

Here is a Holster I just finished for a friend.
This is the second holster that I have sold ,I have made a couple of dozen for myself over the years but I probably made more than
hundred knife sheaths.

Nice holster, Ed. looks good with the border stamping. Thanks for sharing.

Hey, Wadd, I used to have one just like it! Wish I still did. Question, when you fire it with .45 ACP, do you get that weird almost whistle sound? It always reminded me of the spaghetti western sound effects.
The first step of becoming a good shooter is knowing which end the bullet comes out of and being on the other end.

Drayton,

No whistles, but the flames coming sideways out of the cylinder always scares anyone shooting next to me ... *S*

I have just started an experiment with the Wobbly and ammo ... I have bought 50 Auto-Rim .45 casings and am going to load them fairly conservatively to keep the cylinder (and my fingers) in one piece ... I am going to load some of the casings this weekend and will let you know how it went ...

TTFN,

WW, you may want to try the Cowboy 45 Special brass as an option if the auto rims don't work out for you.

I got them Marshall and they work great. I have a 160grn bullet and 2.5grn BA10 powder, gives a recoil like a 22 :D
And when I shooting the holy smoke I dont need any filler.
Shoot fast and aim straight

I think they'd be perfect for BP, Henrik. I tried them with 165 gr bullets and a full load of Trail Boss. They were OK but I need to work up a better load than that.

Marshall.

The main reason I went with the .45 Auto Rim is so that it visually was different than the .45 Schofields that I shoot ... 'cause once the rounds are fired in the .455, they end up stretching a bit (in diameter) so that they have to be resized to shoot in any .45 ... I shoot slow enough without the jams that would occur in my Uberti '73 Winchester (if I loaded it with the Webley ammo after it had been shot in that pistol. The rifle  is set for .45 LC and will just barely accept the OAL of a Schofield).

'And', as Mr Harvey used to say,' that is the rest of the story'.

I needed a new hat band and wanted to loom bead it as that is something I'd yet to try.
But I didn't have a loom so I made an early native bow loom..A willow branch and a couple of strips
of rawhide to hold the threads apart...
I've determined so far you need more hands....Let you know how it turns out......Randy





Here's the end result...I enjoy learning old techniques, might find some more original patterns and make a few more...
I seem to remember "Billie Jack" wearing a beaded hatband.....Randy

Thanks Gents..

Rick, two evenings of watching bad movies...about 5-6 hours...Not really hard but the @@@ thing will not sit still!!

Marshal, thanks...I made the "Bow" too short..,It was about three foot, thought that would be fine...
UNTIL I bent it!! Or I have a real big head!! There is no tearing it out like lane stitch, you cut it off and start again..
So I added some scraps to it..the next one will be longer, or for a smaller head......Randy
