As you know it is thin.. to thin for a holster body..
A great use for it in my shop is for making bucking rolls for the swells of a Wade style saddle... the beaver tail leather has one of the longest wearing surfaces of any leather available for this application.
It can be a little hard to get it to hold stitches.. especially when we make rolls our of them cause they have to be sewn inside out and then turned and packed woth wool or horse hair, this can sometimes blow out the welts.
this will surely make a nice inlay on your holster... Please keep us posted.

Mister, why do you carry a 45? "Cause Sam Colt don't make a 46."
