Pancakes/Belt Slides, Glocks & 1911’s.

GIBSON GLOCK NATURAL--MAY 19 2016

Not a heck of a lot to write about today–or this week.  Staying busy in the shop enjoying the stifling heat and humidity of a Northwest Florida Spring.

I’ve found that if I’m short on topics, I can always slap up a picture.  So, here ya go.

This is one I’ve been building for several years.  Simple belt-slide holster in Natural veg-tan, American-Tanned, premium Hermann Oak leather.  The initial “base” finish is 100% pure Neatsfoot oil, followed by some hours in the Florida sunshine for the honey-gold color.  Vegetable-tanned leather actually does tan…much like the bikini-clad Spring Break nymphs we got rid of a month or so back.  Truth be told, most of those went home hungover and sunburned, but I like my story better.

The holster in the photo above is for the Glock 19, 23, or 32.  It’s bonded and stitched with heavy white nylon thread, the edges are hand-beveled, dyed, and wax burnished.  The belt slots are set to accommodate a 1-1/2″ wide, dual-layer (1/4″ thick) gun belt.  This one’s right-handed with a rake angle set at 15-degrees muzzle rearward.  It also rides high, and provides for a full firing grip.

This second photo is pretty much the same holster as the first, except for the 1911, and a molded site track.  There’s one of my gunbelts in there, too.  And don’t forget those sweet, Wilson Combat 47-D magazines.
