    Nice. Can ya bone a holster for a 1908 Young America .32? Was my Grandad's backup when he was a Treasury agent.

    That's a sweet little revolver.

    Honestly, my skill isn't up to a level that would do your grandpap's gun justice. I usually only make things I need, which doesn't really allow the attainment of master level skills. I have made a holster, and I use it all the time, but it is not more than utilitarian.

    In fact, when my commercial cell phone holster gave up the ghost last week, I decided to try this pancake style as a dress rehearsal for a holster I want to make...to work out the quirks.

    I have some semi-large scrap pieces I use to make prototypes with (work out all the problems and mistakes first) when I'm starting a project I haven't tried before.
    It's really not that hard to do, what you'll need tool wise depends on how pretty you want it to be. Double shoulder or back leather in a 7/8 oz is best, you can stud close it or sew it. If you have patience the tools you may already have on hand will let you finish a good looking holster, about $30 in certain leather tools will give you a great looking holster.
