    Blame DewieDewie for the post :D

    I change hobbies like crazy. This one has seemed to stick with me.
    I'm a bit of a knife nut, and can never find Sheaths I like. As a kid I remember doing small leather crafts.
    Thought I'd give it a try and found out I like doing it.

    Here are some of my creations:
    One of my 1st creations and why I got into it to begin with:

    Very nice.
    I have been doing leather work fore a few years now, ever sine I started shooting cowboy action I found it easier to make my own gun leather and it's a lot more satisfying to make it your self.
    I don't want to steal your thread but here is my last one that I made for my 1871 navy colt (My wife did the bead work)

    Holsters are on my list. I'm pretty comfortable making elaborate sheaths, book covers, wallets etc etc.
    Thus far I've made:
    Sheaths (knives, axes etc).
    Wallets
    Change Pouches
    Book covers
    Bookmarks
    Tool Rolls
    Key Chains
    Wrist straps / bracelets
    Belts.
    Yoga Mat straps
    Edc Pouches.
    Phone covers

    I've made patterns of each item I've built so to speed up the process.
    I want to make some bigger pieces too. I'm working on a new workbench in my office vs in my garage. It should be up and running in the next couple of days.

    It's basically "adults" with firearms playing cowboy. Getting dressed up in period correct clothing (Late 1800's) and competing in a timed target shooting competition that usually lasts all day and has approx 50 revolver shots 50 rifle and 25 shotgun.

    This is a little better at explaining the whole game.

    That seem like it'd be a whole hell of a lot more fun than playing video games all day

    Oh absolutely. But are cowboy boots and hats really firearm accessories? I mean in this application sure. But I bought both of mine when I moved out west, just cause! I love the comfort of the boots. Truly glorious. And the hat has become a drinking accessory. But the boots were upword of $250 and the hat was $150. And those are lower end!

    I have never owned cowboy boots. I had no idea they were actually comfortable. Usually the people wearing them walk like they are in fact uncomfortable. Who knew

    Same as archery. You can get cheaper items but the quality and use isnt there.
    My Bow brand new went for $1400 CAD Pre-Tax with no accessories.

    Most comfortable pair of footwear I've ever owned. :shrug2: When you first buy them they can be a little stiff. But they form to your feet. They are light, waterproof, and super comfortable. I love them and wish I would've discovered them sooner.
