He's making me one for my S&W 2-1/2"- M66 no dash. I will post a pic with gun.

I can do that. I just put the final coat of finish on your holster this morning, so it should ship tomorrow. I'll get some pictures of it before it leaves.

Well, it's raining here today, so my usual photo spot isn't an option, but hopefully these will do.




Wayne, it's going into a box right now. I'll email you the tracking number shortly!

Okay, here's a picture that should be useful.
From left to right: Black, Brown, Saddle Tan, Cordovan, and Natural.

Cordovan is my favorite. Especially when you toss some black trim on it... Or a bit of shark

I have a fondness for it, too... and shark. Man, I love shark. I've been trying to get some, but it has gotten terribly expensive. It will happen someday, though.

Anyway, I finally got some pictures of some Saddle Tan gear.






Saddle Tan behaves differently than any other color. It's an oil-based dye, which leaves sort of a marbling pattern -- certain areas end up darker than others, just depending on the characteristics of the leather. No two pieces turn out the same.

Wow. Nice looking stuff. You got me to dig all my leather working gear back out and start looking for hide again.

Mark Garrity made me up a couple of his Indescernable IWBs a number of years back. Cordovan with black shark trim. They are still my favorites.

Ordered up a Highwayman in black from Wes. A gentleman to do business with. I'm anxious to share his work when it arrives.

Four pages, 89 responses and 4638 reads on this thread, so far.
I guess the folks here appreciate quality when they see it.
Well done, BHPshooter!

Thanks, guys!

Tenntucker, can I ask who the grips are made by? Is that Pau Ferro wood?

Anyway, here are a few more recent things.

I think I've decided that I don't like the decorative stitching on the belt loops. What do you guys think?



I went a little nuts on the boning on this one, I think.

You know... Everybodys a critic...

But I do agree. The stitching and overboning (is that even a word?) distract from the overall lines and fine craftmanship IIHO. Not that its bad, it just draws your eye away from the leather.

Still great work regardless.

I guess everybody is different. I like it when you can identify the type of pistol it's built for by the boning.
Perhaps you could offer a boned and deboned option. :-]

Same with me on the boning. I like it.

Grips are made by Nill.

Its still beautiful work, dont get me wrong. I just prefer the amount of boning that is on the first two with the stitched loops. Now the revolver holster is beautiful as well...I would prefer a bit more definition on the boning on that one though...

Like I said....everyones a critic!!

I have an ulterior motive however. You see, Wes and I have been going back and forth on some ideas for my Highwayman..... Lol

Gents,

Here's my Cylinder & Slide Hi-Power in it's Horseshoe Leather Products rig done by Andy Arratoonian, in England. It doesn't get any better. The leather is 20 years old and still functional...it sees a lot of use.

Enjoy...



Wes

Hold on there Wes, don't get folks worked-up enough to order Andy's stuff right now...he's busy .

Even though I've got several pieces of his artwork...some almost 30 years old , I've been waiting for months for him to start on the next masterpiece for me...

God love him

submoa,

Andy is a true master. I even have a revolver holster for my M-19 2 1/2" in Cordovan. NO...it's not for sale...;-)

We are lucky to have new "masters" like Wes coming up to fill the void. Andy is getting up there.

Andy's work is amazing. I have looked long and often at his website. I honestly don't know how he gets THAT much detail to show on a holster. It's amazing. My molding style is quite different than his, but I can still stare and drool with my jaw on the keyboard.

Oh, I'm faaaaaaar from being within sight of the word "master," but I learn more every day. And, more importantly, I enjoy it.
