Gave kydex a shot. Came out pretty good. Doing mag holsters today. Pics when I'm done. I made one for a glock and gave it to one of the owners of the range I go to. He liked it so much he gave me free guest passes. Forgot to take pics of the one tho. ;(

Screw Tandy, get your leather from the saddle maker supply houses.

For leather to learn with I just go to Hobby Lobby. They sell "Farmers bundles" of leather for $7 which you can use a 40% off coupon with. They usually have grey but I have found bundles of brown.

I know they are a religious company so they are closed on sundays. I think they are mainly just crafts and home decorating items. I have only ever bought leather from them so I have not looked around much.

They have all kinds of stuff. Models, rockets, RC, crafts, posters (I've seen the USC and DOI), some have Kydex and a larger assortment of leather.

It varies by location too. The best thing to do is to visit the store and check it out.

I've been using the hobby lobby leather to learn on. I'm getting better every time.

Very nice. I notice you are using eco flow die from tandy . You might want to try feibings leather dye. I believe you will like it much better. Just my two cents worth...
