Friends Don't Let Friends Go Unholstered

A good friend of mine asked me to make a few holsters for his wife's pistols recently.  She has a concealed carry license but no holster for her snubby Taurus revolver or her Walther P99.  A good holster will allow her to carry securely and safely and hopefully buy a little peace of mind for her husband who will shortly be deploying to Afghanistan.

She wanted IWB style holsters with a spring clip rather than belt loops.  I didn't have any clips but found some decent ones online and ordered 20 of them at about $2 each.  This style of holster is probably the quickest and easiest to make since it has minimal stitching and there's no belt loops or slots to mess with.  Each one took only a couple of hours to make after coming up with a pattern.  The snubby revolver holster was made with cowhide, pigskin lined, and airbrushed two-tone tan and dark brown.  The P99 holster was done in horsehide with lizard trim.  I'm pleased with the results of both.
