Other than living a few miles down the road from these folks (and owning one of their really nice belts in a fairly rotund size), I have absolutely nothing to do with them. But I saw this little photo gallery on the web site of our local paper, so I thought that I'd share it.

If you can find it, Ben Wetzel has a really interesting little shop!

I had Ben make a holster belt for me several years ago, and wear it every day, to church, the office and the woods. It looks great and would pull a train off its rails if it had to. Boise has some nice leather makers there, with Milt Sparks and Idaho Leather a few miles apart.

Alot more machine made than hand made but that's what's needed for production work.Still looks like a very nice rig.Dave:)
