SD Caughey Leather Hand Tooled 1858 Cross-Draw Holster
« on: May 01, 2017, 11:52:55 AM »
This is my second holster that Steve has made for me. A beautiful example of his work from the detailed tooling to the antique brown stain.  You can reach Steve on his Etsy account https://www.etsy.com/shop/SDCaugheyLeather?ref=l2-shopheader-name.

Don't feel bad; I've seen worse.

Just kidding.  Actually it's really gorgeous!   ])M

I'd want some kind of retention though.  You don't want the gun bouncing out while galloping through the countryside on horseback...or ATV...or snowmobile, etc.  A friend of mine lost a pistol that way, far out in the Alaskan mountains.  Also I once found a cell phone high in the Idaho mountains, lost similarly by a hunter.  Stuff 'appens is the point.  Is there a hammer thong there that I'm not seeing?  If not, it would be a simple matter to add one.
But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.   James 1:25 (KJV)

So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty.   James 2:12. (KJV)

Hi RD, yes he has a tremendous selection. He invested over seven hours of labor just to do mine, plus he lets the holster form-fit the model gun for a day or two. Do not expect an instant, off the shelf holster. Steve makes them to order. At any price, you are not going to beat it.

Hey Omni, the worst case of losing something in the wilderness is when some poor cowboy rested his 1882 Winchester against a tree way up in northern Nevada; probably got turned around and could not find it. Someone, however did find it, over 100 years later! Here is the article.... http://www.ksl.com/?nid=148&sid=33093460  I am just a range shooter, so I would not need a tie-down. However, the pistol fits remarkably snug.
