Default Made a holster for my wife.

Tina had been carrying in her purse. But she keeps changing her purse. The latest one was too small. So I decided to make her a holster. I wanted to make it diferent from what is in the stores. What do you think. She is into bright colors and such as you can see from the grip. She will not wear a belt. So I made a paddle for it.

WOW! That outfit will get your attention! But a "Sharp Looking" little holster! Looks great!

Thanks Sniper. She carries concealed anyway. She had a lime green coat and bought a purse to match. She is really into stuff like that. All of my personal holsters are tan, brown or black. She really likes it though. I think it is a chick thing. LOL. I am wondering what Winds of Change is going to think.

That's great and a "fashion accessory" to boot.

You did a nice job! I am impressed. It looks quite professional. A lucky woman getting a hand-crafted personalized custom holster.

Thanks Hiwall.

I made it from a bag of scraps that I got at Hobby Lobby for $6.99.

In her purse is a no-no in my opinion because if the BG snatches her purse, now he has her purse and her gun.

I dont like her carying in her purse either. But at least she had a real concealed cary purse. It has a holster built in. And the strap has a steel cable in it so that it can not be cut. But I prefer her to carry on her body.

Question. I looks like you made a paddle. How did you do that part? I've made several myself, but I've never tied a paddle
