Thank you kindly, Joe - I'm planning another, hopefully nicer one.

Thank you - it wasn't hard to do nor did take long in the damp leather with some rubbing.

You did a darn good job for a 1st holster! :cheers2:

On #2 you might make it a tad longer... just past the muzzle so that if/when you down, it won't push the barrel up and "unlock" the trigger guard from the detent.

Of course; #2 has already been made a little longer.

I had to guess where the stitching would go on #1, but I may add a few more stitches around the trigger-guard area to retract the muzzle a tad. This is the annoying kind of hobby where anyone can spot an error after the fact, but stopping it from occurring in the first place with zero experience is - well, good luck. I'll get there ;-)

It'll either keep people off my butt to "make me something, it'll be easy" - or make it very worthwhile ;-)
