Proud of that stuff arnt they.
Those rigs I agree but some stuff looks pretty decent
I tell ya it all looks like good quality stuff, and to be honest I aint found anything much cheaper. At least not that ornate that wasnt plain jane
Is that for Cowboy Action Shooting?
My Dad was a leather craftsman, taught me also. The hours that go into a hand tooled holster and belt make them fairly expensive. Not many left doing hand tooling, most chinkey stuff is embossed by a big machine. Here’s one of Dads, 60 years old IIRC
Not the best pic - all cut and tooled by hand.
Who remembers Tandy Leather? Worked after school in the local one.
Plus years to know what you’re doing too
I had a holster and mag pouch made for my SA-35 by a local shop I wanted a smooth surface so no tooling and it cost me $90 .
Bought lots from them over the years.
“and all the beads we made by hand, are now a days made in Japan”
First picture and bottom Colt is my Wife’s third generation SAA in 357 mag, D.Chesiak ivories, with a nicely done schrimshawed(?) Paladin/knights chess piece, in “Have gun will travel” style. I had it helfricht checker engraved a few years ago. Bottom picture shows grips in natural light, and engravers hands.
That made my teeth sweat @BillWaits
That Holster would be the perfect match to that beautiful revolver @BillWaits
Well worth the Wait!
