Introduction
If you're looking for a holster that will hold your gun securely and comfortably, then leather is the way to go. It's durable, easy to work with, and looks great on any gun. But if you're new to leather working or just need some tips on making your own leather gun holsters, read on!
Use a strong thread. You'll need something that helps secure the holster to your belt.

● A strong, durable thread is crucial for a proper fit and will always be able to hold up against wear and tear. It should not stretch or fray, but should snap back into place if stretched too far.

Buy a leather hole punch or a dull knife. Leather can be very tough, so you'll need the extra muscle to punch holes in it.

Measure the size of your gun and determine the measurements for your holster. It's best to start with an outline on a piece of paper. The width of your holster should allow you to wrap it around the gun with excess room for stitching or gluing, but not so much extra space that you have difficulty drawing it from your belt. The length is up to you, but make sure that it's long enough to cover everything (including the trigger).

● Measurements: * Width: How wide does this thing need to be? This should be measured in inches. If we're making something out of leather, then check out our tutorial on measuring leather thickness here. * Length: What is its length going from tip-to-tip? Again, measured in inches. * Belt Size: Now measure where exactly would your buckle go if I were making this harness because there are different sizes depending on how tight or loose one wants their pants belts
Trace the top edge of your holster onto your leather and then use a ruler to line up your original drawing and trace along all sides of the holster.

Trace the top edge of your holster onto your leather and then use a ruler to line up your original drawing and trace along all sides of the holster. The top edge should be about 3/4" from the top of the gun, which is about 2" from where you want it to be in relation to your belt buckle.
Cut out the shape of your holster with scissors or an electric knife.

The next step is to cut out the shape of your holster with scissors or an electric knife. If you're using a knife, make sure it doesn't have sharp blades that could cause injury when used on leather. You can use a ruler to line up your original drawing and trace along all sides of the holster, then cut out its shape with scissors or an electric knife. If needed, use a file to remove any rough edges along the cut leather.

As you can see, there are many different types of leather gun holsters. Some are more formal, while others are more casual. The important thing to keep in mind when choosing your holster is that it should be comfortable and fit well on your body. If you find yourself constantly adjusting your holster because it doesn't fit quite right, then look into another option!

Fold down both sides at least twice so they're smooth and flat against each other, and then secure them with glue or stitches along the edges of each fold.
● Use a strong thread, such as a leather hole punch or a dull knife.
● Measure the size of your gun and determine the measurements for your holster.
