Im glad it is working for you Josh. Thats a sharp lookin belt you have as well sir. I allways start more towards the snug side on most things i make because i know with some time the leather is gonna naturally relax and stretch a little. Speacially with the wet molded stuff. If with a little time it still dont relax enough or to stretch it you can add couple wraps of tape or couple Ziploc bags over item dampin the inside with water and stuff the bagged item in and let it dry. Also if leather items become a little looser then they should be like ammo loops on gunbelts and such you can wet them and let them dry in the sun without items in them and theyll draw up a little to get back to tighter fit.
@HandyDave is working on two badass holsters for me. I will post pics as I receive them.
And Dave… I just bought a Kimber 1911 Stainless Pro Carry II today… so get your sketch pad out again. And send me those awesome embossed stingray grip covers you are starting to make.
@cico7 Don’t hate on me Don… it’s 9mm.
It’s my first (and not last) 1911. I have over 7k rounds of 9mm and zero rounds of 45. It’s going to make a good starter and trainer for move to a larger caliber on my next 1911.
That, and .45 is for pussies. (Oh… the Stolichnaya must be kicking in already!).
As ive said before Brian you small caliber guys crack me up:joy:
That it is, 10mm or nothing. Go big or go home😉
My new favorite holster… made by our own @HandyDave is my AIWB for my Glock 43 conceal carry. I just got it today and David hit a grand slam on this one! High quality leather, perfect fit and retention, high grade aluminium claw, and a great belt clip (Ulticlip XL).
Now he just needs to finish the open carry holster for my Glock 17. From what he told me it will my next new favorite holster.
Even the business card holder he included with his cards is a piece of art. Kudos David!
Im glad your happy with it brother. I didnt even know what the hell a “claw” was when you asked if i could do a appendix iwb holster for you. So with alot of research and figuring not to mention my bald spot getting bigger from the head scratching i figured it out. Regular iwb isnt much different then owb as far as layout but i found with the appendix carry and the addition of the claw everything has to line up just right to work properly. I also mounted the t nuts and fastners so the claw can be removed for regular iwb use and clip can be changed if ever need to. I tryed to add as much versatility to it as i could.
Love me some ulticlips. Holster looks great.
So, @HandyDave … do you have an officer size 1911 to mold on? I’d love a very similar holster for my BBR 3.10 with 507k mounted in the slide.
Grips worked well. No slip no muss no fuss
It’s the combination of the Ulticlip and the Dominant Defense claw that @HandyDave chose that really improves concealment.
Even with a fairly tight t-shirt… it’s hard to tell if I carry.
Always love to see a package at my door from @HandyDave !
My new favorite holster… for my Glock 17. Another work of art by David…
A nice touch with the silver stitching and the silver lining…
Perfect (for me) ride height…
Beautiful. The holster, not your butt.
Oh, and he added a few extras because he is obviously an over achiever…
… a matching koozie…
And a hook patch for my range bag (or a hat)… this was totally an unexpected surprise…
Lets hear it for our very own @HandyDave !!!
Now David… get going on the shoulder rig for my Kimber 1911. I expect nothing but the very best from you Brother!
EDIT… bonus gun porn… the whole package…
Well then… here’s a little more big guy. Wink… wink…
BTW… the gal who took the pics of me said the butt is good. So… there you privileged racist homophob!
Just a friendly PSA to locktite the chicago screws on your shoulder holsters… i kept meaning to bring my loctite home from the shop, but alas my leather started to disassemble itself after my last hunting trip…
@HandyDave reminded me, but i kept thinking… maybe i will do it tomorrow, or tomorrow, etc…
At least i have a good handful of bronze screws on hand to fix it, but failure couldve been avoided.
Great point Josh. I check all the fastners on my holsters every two weeks. What have I learned? That Blue Loctite tastes better than the Red. Gotta get the excess off your allen wrench somehow.
Im glad your so happy with your newest holster @TexasEskimo. You wanted texas so texas is what you got. I hope i done the state proud. I had the test piece layin on my table after i got the holster and koozie finished so i figured id sew some velcro on the back and turn it into a matching moral patch for the hell of it. And im sorry to hear the screws worked loose on your shoulder rig @Stircrayzy some things i put loctite on before i ship them. But something like your shoulder rig i dont loc screws before hand that way they can be adjusted by customer to size then i allways make mention to customer to loc tite once fitting is done. Now i cant have no control with what customer does with the warning after i give it😆 . If you do end up needing some more Chicago screws to match whats on there id be happy to send you some brother.
