These are some of the other holsters that I make. So far they are only for guns I own, I'm looking to get some of the training "blue guns" to add to the ones I can make but $50 each will take some time. I don't do as much forming as some people do at this point but the retention on my holsters is pretty good even after a good break in period. I'm gonna show these on me so let's keep the fat jokes to a minimum, not that I care but some others may.

First up is a pancake holster that I've used as my daily carry for about a year now for my 1911 commander.

Next, pancake holster with a thumb break for a S&W SW9VE Sigma.

Next is an Avenger style with a thumb break for a S&W SW9VE Sigma.

Next, my first IWB. This is also for the Sigma. I did make some adjustments to the pattern because, after wearing it for a day, I decided the "sweat shield" needed to be bigger for us "fluffy" guys (it pinched my "love handles"). Most of the ones that I have seen in this style use metal clips or 2 smaller straps, I think the single, wide strap adds stability.

Next is my first tuckable IWB for my new Glock 27. At first it was positioned too far in the waist band and it was difficult to draw for me, probably ok for a skinny guy. After I adjusted the carry height it was much more comfortable. Both of the IWB holster maintain their shape when the gun is drawn and are easy to reholster.

I do make other things from leather as well. I haven't really figured out pricing yet so I'm open to see what you folks would pay for something like these, I've seen prices on the internet from $29.95 to $150 for custom holsters. My thoughts are in the $40 to $60 range.
Any way comments and criticism is welcome, I can only get better.

Thanks guys, I appreciate the feedback. I like making them just to relax. I suppose if I sell more it may not be as relaxing but I'm willing to take the risk. I do make other things as well, I just finished a haversack that works pretty well and since I sold the one I take hunting this will replace it. I make wallets and checkbook covers just to stay out of trouble. I'm going to do some key chains and smaller stuff too and try to go to a craft show or gun show to make some sales. Unfortunately I'm a little limited as to the models of guns I can make holsters for but I'm working on getting some trainers for forming holsters.

I like that IWB one that you made for the Sigma. I'm currently searching for the "perfect" holster for the new SCCY CPX-2 that I recently bought, so far not much luck.

I like that one too, it's pretty comfortable but the tuckable I did for the G27 is even more so, at least for me.

It looks like I can get a blue gun for the sccy but it looks like a 2 week back order. The holster takes about a week if you're interested.

Keltec P11 should be identical, along with the Ruger LCP I'd bet

Mogunner, I found this on the SCCY FAQ page: http://www.sccy.com/faqsLooks like there are lots of links to holster sites. It might help with the size issue. If you've already checked it out, I apologize.

Lots of pricey stuff there. I have a few of those already, just not quite what I'm after. I have a JIT slide for my P95 that I was carrying that worked well, may try and find one that will fit the SCCY for OWB carry. For IWB I was just using a nylon cheapy off ebay that worked fine for the P95 but is obviously too deep for the SCCY.

The p11 looks pretty close but the Ruger is narrower. I'll see if I can find someone that has one I can borrow to make a holster and let you know.

I agree with the P11 keltec being the exact size of the Sccy. I have both in the store and let people compare them a lot. I sell a lot more Sccys than I do keltecs
