Standard Mexican Loop Holster, unlike what you might see in the movies, this is the standard type of holster used by cowboys and others in the late 19th century in the American west.

Made from 13-15 oz Hermann Oak saddle skirting. Oiled with pure Neatsfoot Oil and antiqued with Fiebing's Tan-Kote and Antique Finish.

    I'm a leather worker by hobby. My dad taught me when I was just about 5 and I've made some very nice pieces over the years. I lost my dad last month and I inherited a Ruger Vaquero 44 Mag. I'd love to make this holster for it. I wish you talked about what you were doing, while doing it, but I loved the video anyway. You and I have a very similar style and method. You are definitely more professional. As I sit here on Father's Day, without my dad for the first time, your video made me smile because of the beauty of what you created. Thank you for posting it.

    Free handing that stamping work was amazing! So much attention to detail! Bravo sir!

  • Kevin Noll

    I've watched this video a few times now. I have a couple questions. First, you cut the pattern with a swivel knife before using the leather knife. Why? Does it make it easier to follow the curves? Second, you soaked the leather then used a glass slicker on the face. (That's what it looked like anyway) What's the purpose of this method? Does it "pre stretch" the leather?

    That’s a gorgeous holster! I’m sure it’s well out of my price range...And if it isn’t, I’m sure the ornate revolver deserving of such a masterpiece would be🤣

  • patw999

    Good Lord, that's a beautiful holster. Man 13-15oz leather!! That is some hard work there, and all done by hand. Not many out there doing what you are doing. I think some of the folks on Youtube need to watch you to know what a true holster maker can do instead of all these people with air this and vacuum that. A very very fine job indeed. Thank you for letting me watch you make it. Pat

    But this guy is an absolute champion!!!

  • FatJesus 1

    Great work.....this kinda quality can be had at most custom boot shops worth their salt. Expect to pay at least a couple to a few hundred bucks for a well made one.. I usually have one made whenever I have a pair of cowboy boots made so it can match together as a set!!

  • Don B

    Beautiful holster and craftsmanship....

  • toot tall

    too bad you have to cut out so much, but then people wouldn't watch it for the hours it really takes. Most people have no idea how much skill and time something like this really takes. very nice work.

  • Boreal Patriot

    Did you kill a dinosaur to get that leather? JZC what a overkill for a 2pnd hand gun. But ...., i do respect your skills about leather working !

  • Star Rider

    Absolutely breathtaking work and end product. Very admirable indeed. And then Youtube is flooded by shit videos of workers with 'super human skill levels', when they are painting a room or mowing a lawn! I ask you?

  • Gene

    do you ever line your holsters to protect the pistol ? if so with what?

  • Gene

    I made one like that , not as ornate, for a ruger super blackhawk with 10 1/2 barrel with a cartridge loop belt all hand sewn. It was a heck of a project with conchos and blood knots. it went to my knee

  • Grichka Bogdanoff

    You should make a holster to protect this holster
