Back around the first of the year I got the idea to start making my own leather gear. I ordered a side of leather from Tandy in Anchorage, and spent quite a bit of time reading/researching ideas online. This is the second belt and holster I put together, added a cartridge slide and sheath to match. This has been a great hobby, and with a little money and alot of time has really turned out great. I made these from scratch, had to work up my own patterns and such. Nothing professional, but strong and practical.
