    Recently completed a couple holsters for two of my sons. One belt carry rig for a 686 and the other an adjustable paddle style for a 1911.

    Nice tooling & craftsmanship...

    Looks like a Series 80 Gold Cup National Match.

    It’s about the holsters here, not what’s in them. I find the skill involved is exceptional patience and creativity on what’s next? Am sure many patterns, overlays and samples available, I couldn’t do it.

    Worked in leather finishing factory (only electrician) in start out years, they did finishes for patent leather shoes, embossing. Wasn’t the holster grade stuff, but sanded down entire cow sides/hides.
