Second attmpt at building a holster

I won't go into detail on the gross failure of my first attempt right now, but suffice it to say that my first holster tuned into a rock. I'm pretty proud of my second attempt, though. Here's a link to my blog where I have the so-far pics posted.

Is that for pocket carry?
Looks good.

It's an OWB pancake. I wear it at approximately 4:30. I'll get some pics up wearing it. Thanks for the compliment!

Tranks - I don't know. He didn't say. But, it worked on my funny bone, anyway!

OK. So I finally got to take some pictures in sunlight. Here are two pics showing that this thing sucks my Smith & Wesson L-Frame in tight enough that it it undetectable even under a light, cotton shirt:





Here's a better pic of the holster itself in use:



And, the money shot:



As I said before, I'm thrilled about how this one came out. Maybe it was beginner's luck, or maybe I have some natural talent for this kind of work. I'm going to have to make some more holsters to find out!

Wow, nice. Tell you what, if you can make a revolver holster that has a flat inner face with a split beltloop, I'd be all over that. Everything I've found for my SP101 3" is just uncomfortable as heck.
