Welcome to my Blog
I hope it will inspire you.
I hope you can learn about new things with me.
There is no better reference book than Al Stohlman's book on Holstermaking.
It shows you how to design your own holster and how to build various variations into your holster.
But there are a few points I want to expand on. For example, none of Stohlman's holsters in that book were lined. And nowadays there are many methods of wet-molding that can make a difference to the technique you follow.
First, let me suggest this sequence of making a holster:
"Holster making is one of those skills you learn by doing. The above book is a good general reference for "field" type holsters (but it is dated). It is not a reference for modern practical gun leather.My best suggestion it to take a class or 3 from someone who is skilled at the craft. Master the basics before trying to teach others.I'm of this opinion simply because a holster is not like a billfold, wallet or belt. If you get it wrong it may have dire results and someone cold be injured.Think of it like saddle making. Would you buy a saddle from someone who doesn't know anything about horses or saddles?"
