As usual, I am behind the 8 Ball - but, and it is a big but, if I get this done for the show it will be amazing.

Here is a teaser... :twisted:

It is a type of Horse Hide known as Shell Cordovan. Very firm, yet supple. It is bonded to Cow Hide in order to make a rigid holster.

If I can get the colors I can (depends on availability from Horween). A belt would have to be pieced together from strips, and from what I have been told by Josh Bulman it really isn't suited for belts. It would require daily buffing to keep it looking good. Of course, if that is what you want...I am here to please :mrgreen:

Well...Miracles do exist!

Stop by and take a look at it in Booth #2243 if you are SHOT.

This is absolutely amazing. The texture almost looks creamy/buttery. I understand that the shell is supposedly firm, so I would guess that this holster is solid. I bet people are surprised when they handle it - you would expect it to be soft by it's appearance. Again, awesome work, John!

John, I didn't even see this thread until just now. Fascinating progression of pics. Glad I got to fondle and smell this rig at SHOT!
