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.
