I should first say, I'm not really a holster maker...

Thanks buddy! I sure hope so too. I've had a lot going on for a long time now, but I've made some changes and I hope to be back on PA giving everyone a hard time again.

Most of whats been going on is some life changes. I found out I wasn't as invincible as I thought I was. The stupid thing I done as a young man is really kicking my arse now. A little health trouble, nothing to serious but the worst thing that bothers me right now is is this arthritis. It's not as much the pain but the inability to do certain things. But I'm working hard to make sure that it doesn't get the best of me. My new carrier has kept me really busy which is part of the reason I have been absent. But I'm going to start making time for this amazing craft and community again. I sure have missed everyone that's for sure.

How hard would I have to twist your arm to make me one for my ruger 44 mag?

Thanks fellas! I really appreciate it!

Kevin, it wouldn't take a lot for you brother. Just need your gun and some time.

Thanks guys, as usual, I can point out all of the flaws. But as someone once said, if it's perfect it's not hand made.

I've been using them pretty much every day, and so far I'm very pleased with the results. The glock holster is my favorite but I can almost forget that the revolver is on my hip. There will be more in the future!
