Man good job! One suggestion I would make is to burnish the edges.

A guy at the flea market that makes beltd and holsters told me to try sewing with two needles so I looked it up in a leather book I had and it id much easier and I think I does look better just got more practice to do.

Nice work. I like that you properly covered the trigger. Too many people are not doing that these days. You may want to cut a relief in the top behind the trigger guard for your middle finger. You can still cover the trigger guard completely.

Hey Barney, that is a very nice looking holster. You obviously put some work into it. But I personally like to have the trigger completely covered. I would be concerned that you could lean up against something and have an accidental discharge.

In terms of the stitching the one with the revolver is much nicer.

I do agree about adding a slight extension to completely cover that trigger, though.

Yea Im still playing with drawing my own patterns it should have sit just a bit lower that was my intention to just see the back side of the trigger. But !!!!!!! Lol in the old tandy books ive been reading most the revolver holsters have exposed triggers. I wanted that cut away look but most the trigger covered. When I cut it and shaped it, it was right, after I sewed everything up it sat a little high. Just need a little more dip under the barrel on the next one. Im looking into two tone dying so hopefully next weekend ill have a good one I really like the shape of this airweight holster im going to stick with it.

Keep at it man. You're doing great since you haven't been doing it very long. You're learning, which is what's important. And btw I bet that revolver holster would work perfectly on one with a slightly shorter barrel.

Love the bullet loops incorporated into that design. My first thought was, "well what good is that gonna do?" But then I realized that's not exactly a gun you do a combat reload on.

No its really just cause I thought it would look cool . I wantd to do some across the cylinder but its a little on the small side.
