Custom Holster, Gun Belt Craftsmen!

Any one know of custom holster makers in the Willamette Valley that can do a nice convertible holster for a Great Big Damn Revolver and a really good Non cartridge Cowboy style gun belt?

What I'm wanting is to be able to carry my big arse Ruger in a left side right hand cross draw holster, and to be able to transfer said holster to a shoulder holster/chest rig for flying!

And...................Go! :s0155:

Wouldn’t need the shoulder holster for flying, but might be a nice option to have avail for hiking & such.

.44mag pistol. I know there’s an older western style bandolier belt & holster for it. Where it wandered off to? Dunno.
Kind like the idea of a Bandoleer belt and holster, might fix both needs on one rig!

Kind of what i'm looking for for daily wear, just for a longer barrel!

i'm not laughing at all, this whole stinking thing is really cutting into our lives! Hopefully you can get the stuff moved nice and easy!


A E Nelson looks worth a try (pics)
I bought a nice western holster from a guy in Yacolt,Wa. He worked on a tug in the Columbia and lots of time ? It was great don’t remember his name, home cottage industry. It was for a Ruger Vaquero 7.5” in 45 colt

I think I found what i'm after, but it's going to cost me, and the leather works I am working with ether needs my pistol to mould it exactly! Fortunately, he is kind of local, so it's not going to be that big a deal!
Here is the closest picture I can find, left side cross draw, with two pouches on the right side! Pistol's grip will be closer to the center ring!

And No, I'm not getting that funky under bust thingy! :p

Obviously, The quality needs to be better, and actually set up for a real firearm!

Will keep this open and will update when I get it all figured out and get something made!


Bob Mernickle out of the Reno, Nv. area might be able to fix you up.
I met him and his wife many years ago at a gun show in Reno and was very impressed with their work. Over time I've ordered a number of holsters from them and have never been disappointed. They are also very reasonably priced.

This is the most recent one they made for my 3" Taurus 692:

    I enjoy this local indoor range, they have lots of fun guns to rent and try out. They also have a gun store if you want to purchase something.

    A relative of mine recently went through this place to purchase a handgun. They were rude to her, lied to her, and must be new to this FFL stuff...
