Looks good to me. Flap holsters are better for a lot of situations has they protect the firearm for worldly gunk. But I'm positive everyone here already knows that. As such I've always liked them too.

thank you gentlemen,i`m still thinking on reshaping the bottom 2/3`s. i guess i will sew this one up first and see if it changes the look.

Looks fine to me, as you said "reshaping the bottom", I would think unless it's "molded" (shaped under pressure) the way you are doing it would make it fit MORE guns, NOT be "fitted" . Keep it simple and it will serve it's purpose.
Good job /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Looks good. You might want to consider lining it with satin or other really slick fabric to minimize bluing wear. Of course that won't work if this is meant to be a working/hunting holster where it might get exposed to rain or such, but if it's a storage/range holster then satin's a good idea.

That's very nice work. You do that for a living or just as a hobby?

While I think it is very nice, were it mine I would prefer the stiching, the thread, to match the color of the leather rather than being white.

What did you use for the lining, or is it lined?

well it`s mainly a hobby, but i did sell about 3k last year.the lining is same veg. tanned leather as the face only a lighter weight.i like the white stiching, it sets the color of the face leather off and seperates a custom holster from a factory holster. i put everyone of those stiches in there with awl and needle and i want them to show up /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif i did sew a whole box of that white thread last year 916 yrds, one stich at a time.it`s an interesting hobby that produces a lttle "gun money". i am left handed and leather for my own use is hard to find, so i just make my own.

Well, on a scale of 1 to 10, I would give it a solid 10.5 I think it is beautiful. Great craftsmanship. Takes skill to turn out something like that.
