From the picture it Looks pretty damn good. Good selection of colors. Only thing I would recommend would be to watch the spacing on the stitching. It's a bit off around the trigger guard.

Looks like you just need a bit more practice to me. It looks good, but the lack of experience is evident. Build a few more, and some knife sheaths too. You already have a background in it, so just keep plugging away at it, you'll be turning out perfect holsters in no time.

Yea my stitching is my biggest downfall I have the tool to prepunch the holes. Yea I told all my buddys at work to bring me there guns and ill make them a holster so I should get plenty of practice.

Looks a lot better than I could make. Keep it up and I think you'll improve exponentially. And I agree the stitching gap isn't quite even, but I was looking for it since Mountainman already posted about it.

Nice job. I won't mention the stitching but I will mention that when I grab my firearm there are two things I don't like. 1) when I take the gun from the holster I want a full grip and it looks like there isn't much room for that by the trigger guard. 2) the other place I've had the issue is where my thumb goes when I grip the gun, don't want to grab leather.

Just some suggestions from someont that learned the hard way.

Thanks guys I have another to make this weekend for a p95 I have a bunch of buddys that love this design it dra2d easy it is the same on the backbad it is on the front so unless they have freakishly large hands its easy to get a positive purchase on the weapon. Also 5he gun is a glock with no safety so it was my intention to cover the trigger guard . Anyway it's not my cc setup but it still drews very well.
