The last couple I made, I just took them over to the saddle shop and had Lester sew them on the top stitcher, it was quick and he charged me $5 per to sew them, and it looks nice.

You guys are great! Thanks for the kudos and the tips!!

Here's a quick shot of the first IWB. Still need to do my edge work and wax this one, but I think I like it. I've never worn an IWB, so I'm no expert on comfort, but it feels good to me and rides really well with my FS 45 sitting in it. Need to get a few out there in the hands of people who know what's what and really find out if my holsters are gonna work or just look good.

That one is super nice, if you were to sell them what would your price be for a fullsize 1911?

You know ... that's a good question! I've been mulling that over the last few days. There's a local gun show here next month and I was planning on taking some there. In my opinion, I'm just not quite there yet to be charging a whole heck of a lot.

Here's what I was thinking to start:

Avenger style OWB - $50
Pancake OWB - $55
IWB #1 - $60
IWB #2 - $65
Single mag holster - $25

Exotic skin trim - add $10

Trying to cover materials and just a fraction of the time. I've got a ways to go before this could ever be a big operation to be sure. Maybe in a year I could step up if there is any demand still around and the product stands the true tests - time and use.

Think I've got my head on straight with that? I'm really shooting in the dark on this. Opinions? Ideas?


Thanks again for all the help!!

No, I think that is very reasonable. If I was interested in trying it myself, I would be all over it.

Sounds pretty fair, riurs are made per order and they are not stamped out on a assembly line. What about a paddle style for a full size 1911 in the color of the last pic u posted.

Thanks ell. Yep, made one stitch at a time, but not quite ready for orders yet! Need to keep learning a while I think.

As far as a paddle; I haven't even got a clue how I'd do that. Might look at how their made and come up with a design down the road though.
