Updates!

So my belt pouch is 100% complete. The holster was purchased from Jaing. It came in today. It's a bit of a tight fit for the blaster. But I got it to work  ;)





Let me know what you think!

My vest should be in sometime next week!    ;D

Love the cape vod!  Nice job with the weathering!  Hopefully, you didn't get arrested for dragging it around town behind your car.  :P

Slight problem:

So now that I'm done with my DL-44 blaster, I put about 2-3 protective coats on it and let it dry for it's recommended dry time.  After I put it in my holster for set fitting, it scratched the paint off some of the blaster. I've repainted it many times and applied new clear coats after painting but that damn holster just keeps scrapping the paint off and you can see the white and orange underneath.  >:(

Anyone got a suggestion to fix this problem. The inside of the holster is pretty rough.  It's made from leather.

Any help or suggestions would be great!  ;D

What are you using to coat your blaster?

For the holster, maybe you could use a fine sandpaper to smoother out the inside? You could wrap the sandpaper around a paint stirrer to get further down inside the holster.

I'm using Krylon clear protective coat.
