|Most people enjoy good leather and these rigs
are most attractive. Not actually for cowboy action
shooting but the basic style has that flavor about
In part an attempted ''DIY'' project over 20 years
ago, they were in fact receiving of much input from
a leather-working friend who had the machines capable
of stitching everything together, as well as the
experience to solve some of the problems!
The one above was made to take a Smith M27 which
was used for practical competition and had two options
- either one holster on left for cross draw or the
other on right for regular draw. Ooops! - the picture
incorrectly shows the cross draw on the right side,
thus the appearance of reverse cant! The cross draw
was actually not used a lot because of range restrictions
on that presentation method.
Below, the rig was made to take an early Ruger Redhawk
and so was of potential use as a hunting setup as
well as just use on the range.
