    I had Duster make a holster for my LCP and a holster for my Provari vaping device. Both turned out better than I imagined. Great work and very fair price. I recommend OWGS for anything leather. ImageUploadedByHi-Point Forum1399677747.873426.jpg

    He does good work! I really like my knife case he made for me.
     

  3. After seeing the stuff he does, I actually start looking for things I want made into leather. Beautiful stuff.

    i've never really been a big leather fan, but, his work sure is great. so great, in fact, that as soon as i finish drawing it up, and the dang doctors let me go back to work, ive got a sling idea for my new AK that i'd like him to make for me.
     
  5. Is that holster like a Sneaky Pete? Need more pics!

    I have the seven round magazine and it won't fit in the Sneaky Pete. Sent Duster some pics of the LCP next to a ruler so he could make it the correct size.

    I have an old "chain drive" Harley Wallet, I got almost 25 years ago...
    Needs a new snap and some stitching re-done...

    Do you do repairs Duster?

    I do however it might be cheaper to find a local shop. Pm me with some pics I'll give you a quote.

    No such thing as "cheap" when it comes to custom leather work and the people here should understand that. It's every bit as much of a skilled artisan trade as oil portraiture only 1,000 times more in demand.

    I'm lucky I have one in my family. :)

    I'm not at all looking for cheap. I want a well made piece that's every bit as artistic as it is functional. I'd like a holster that tells a bit of the history of the gun it holds as well as the maker of the holster. I'm sure you weren't referring to me but thought I'd throw that it anyway.

    You're right, I wasn't referring to you. :)

    Duster mentioned that it might be "cheaper" and, well, I have some little idea about what it takes to be a decent leather worker. From what I've seen, his work is top-notch.

    And leather work is in high demand right now (worse in the fall when bikers want their leather jackets repaired).

    Years (and years and years) ago I had a friend who made custom plate armour. He had zillions of dollars worth of custom and/or expensive tools. He once commented that making plate armour was pretty similar to doing custom auto body work, followed with a complaint of, "but they make a lot of money and I don't." Well, that's because everybody owns 3 cars now and nobody but nerds, reenactors, LARPers, and a small subset of Western Martial Artists even wants armour, never mind custom dished plate armour. If you wanna make money, go where the money is. If you wanna do what you love, don't piss-n-moan if it's not where the money is.

    Same sort of thing goes for custom leather work as opposed to a lot of other artistic professions. It's like the auto body specialist. There are lots of people who want custom leather and repairs, ranging from jackets and clothing, up through custom gunleather. It's just as artistic as a pottery artist but my Uncle has to turn away leather jobs because there ain't enough hours in the day while my Sister-in-Law has to beg people to buy her hand thrown and decorated pottery.
