Awesome new belt and holster

Early last week I was wasting some time on Facebook when I ran across a link to a link to a link that ended up on the page of Touch of Yellow Leatherworks. The pictures and comments looked pretty good, so I mentally filed it away as something to check out later.

Well, a couple of hours later, I was here on TFL and happened to see IdahoMike's signature line. Son of a gun, Touch of Yellow is his outfit! So I sent him a PM and exactly a week ago, we got together in a parking lot in Boise and I described what I was after. No pictures or drawings, just me trying to explain that I wanted a fairly simple 3" belt and sort of a shorty slim jim holster for my .357 SAA revolver.

Today the results arrived. That's right, a one week turnaround!







Mahogany-dyed, suede lined belt with adjustable cartridge loops (hooray, I can also shoot my .44 Colt with it!) along with a pigskin-lined holster. All beautifully hand cut, punched and sewn.

Folks, IdahoMike is the real deal. Do not hesitate to do business with him!

You just can't beat the quality of Mike's work. Just look at the thickness and the rich colors of that rig! The man is a master with the leather. I won't get a holster anywhere else again.

Beagle! Thank you for the kind words! Was hoping you would chime in, the holster hanging from that rig is none other than a 333 model.

Brazosdave, that engraving was on the gun when I bought it. I liked it, too. I wish I had the skill and patience to do that stuff.

Agree....

In addition to his capabilities with leather, Idahomike is a straight up guy too.

Thanks fellas. I still see all the tiny imperfections and nit pick everything I make. And I always do my best to treat folks I do business or tradin' with the way I would like to be treated. You guys and gals buy my groceries and my family and I are truly appreciative.
