Hey ive been thinking about making holsters...how do you get it to take the exact shape of the gun? Like in yours you can see the detail of the of the cylinder and what not (obviously I haven't done much research)

Oh by the way...that looks KILLER! I like the light stitching on the darker leather.

BillyHart 10-01-2012 03:18 PM

Case your leather. Wet it and put it in a ziplock bag for maybe 15 to 20 min. And then it will mold to what ever you wish I also cover the weapon with plastic wrap.

What do you mean by case it

BillyHart 10-01-2012 07:37 PM

Soak it in water and seal it in a bag for 15 to 20 min.to allow the water to fully penetrate the leather then you can work it. soak it in the water until the bubbles stop take it out and then seal it.

BillyHart 10-01-2012 07:38 PM

That is known as casing.
