Nice work!

I haven't purchased a holster since I started messing around with leather a few years ago. So far I've built a chest rig for my SRH, a crossdraw for my SRH, another crossdraw for a Buckmark and probably two dozen more IWB and OWB holsters for friends. The wife got a purse and the girls got leather bracelets. There is a lot of trial and error in being self-taught. YouTube and the "interweb" are priceless tools for learning the craft.

I must agree. I'm in the planning stages of a bandoleer style holster for my 14" scoped Encore. I haven't quite found what I'm looking for and the prices I've been quoted to build what I want ($450+) has led me to try my creative skills. In the long run I'm probably going to be better off paying the $$ to have one made - LOL. We shall see!

Offshore - Honestly it is not that difficult. Just take your time and watch lots of tutorial videos on the step you are trying to accomplish. Then try it on a scrap piece of leather.

I recommend getting a scrap piece of leather to make a holster and a good piece. Perform the task on the scrap piece to get a feel for it and work out any mistakes. Once you are happy with the task at hand, perform the task on the good piece of leather.

One step at a time and you will have something that you can be proud of.
