Pistol Holster
« on: Jan 11, 2019, 08:12 PM »
I have a Westar 34 pistol that I want to make a holster for.  I got some scrap leather that i intend to use, but I want to make the thing without messing up to many pieces.  Are there any tips or things I could use?   I have a little leather working experience, but not a whole lot, so any advice would be appreciated.

Check out this video from Warmaster's Workshop (video by Mandalore the Uniter, MMCC overseer).  Lots of good info here.

If you make a mock up out of card first you'll have a template to work from.  ;)

here is one I made out of sentra, 2 large pieces and 2 very small pieces. super easy

here's a more complex holster for a dl-44 I made the same way

heres one I made for my westar 34 out of leather


I used fun foam as a mock up material, the design was inspired by Indiana Jones' holster which is a ww2 era leather holster and the flap keeps dirt off the gun,
