When making a holster, I find it important to shape it to the gun that will live in it. Here is how I do it. Wet the leather, and fold it around the gun. vac pack it over night shaped. Finished. This is a light everyday carry shuck patterned after a Texas Ranger design of the late 1930's. Brill- Austin pattern. I see that Barranti has essentially this same holster starting at $150. I have $9 in leather and about 2 hours time in this one.
