Sam Andrews of Andrews Custom Leather makes a holster with Hank Strange.

It’s a little long, but this is an excellent video done by Hank Strange in Sam Andrews shop down in Alachua, Florida.  This one takes you step-by-step through Sam’s process of making a belt slide, or “pancake” holster for a Glock 19.  Sam recently moved his shop from Alachua to St. Augustine, Florida.

Sam’s process is a little different than mine, but similar in many ways.  He’s been at it for some 40-years, and he stays booked with an extended backlog.  As a Maker, I love watching other Maker’s processes.  I always learn something, and this video is no exception.  One thing I learned from this one is that Sam Andrews seems to be a heck of a nice guy.

Awesome video from Hank Strange on a process I’m always fascinated by.  Check out Andrews Custom Leather here Andrews Custom Leather and Hank’s YouTube Channel here Hank Strange YouTube.

  1. Thanks for posting this Bruce… This was the first video I had seen of Sam and Hank. I was completely memorized by Sam’s methods of doing the pancake holster and his “smooth D.J.” voice 😉

    Sam & Hank also have another video out on making a Shoulder Rig. I think it is about an hour long. I picked up so many little tips from that one I use all the time and again, Sam’s easy going demeanor, leather tips and cool voice keep you glued to the screen!

    It would be great to work with him for a week just see how he does the volume of work that is put out.

    1. Thanks, Rick! I completely agree. As you know most of us work alone, so we’re pretty isolated. I always enjoy getting to see other guys in the gunleather business practicing the craft.

      Hope things are good, and busy as you wanna be out there in Arizona!
