A while ago I posted a couple of photos of 2 New Service revolvers w/ a period Lawrence flap holster-I collect vintage gun leather as avidly as I do Colts.Gerald aka icdux1 of this forum asked me for a tracing of the holster;he said he made holsters & wanted to use a tracing as a pattern.Took me longer than I want to admit but I traced the holster on a piece of heavy paper,rolled it & mailed it in a tube-also took a couple more photos,as requested.Gerald said he'd send me a holster from the pattern.Here's what was in my PO box today-the Lawrence is on the left & the (personalized!)holster icdux1 made is on the right.Gerald,you asked me for feedback-your workmanship is excellent,your materials are top grade & your stitching is as nice as I've seen on contemporary holsters-far better than usual.The full interior lining is laid in perfectly-not a wrinkle.Stamping this fine holster with my initials was a great final touch.You went way out of your way to
say thanks-I greatly appreciate the fine holster;it joins some real treasures in my collection.Anyone wanting a custom holster might want to see if they can get on icdux1's list-I can't help but think there is a backlog.Thanks,Gerald-I really appreciate it.
Regards,
