TheIndianaOutlaw: where can we buy herman oak leather in smaller sheets? like 12"x12"
Nolan Gaudreau: What kind of sewing machine is this? And where would you get one? Thanks!
TheIndianaOutlaw: what kind of stain are you running through your airbrush?
Eric Adams: @stevelinn442 Thanks! I made the pattern myself, but got the basic know-how
from the Stohlman holster book, as well as the good people over on the
Leatherworker message board. Patterns are pretty easy to make, once you
know the basics. I started making holsters probably a year and a half ago.
This started out as a hobby for me - making holsters for my own guns, then
other people started asking me to make holsters for their guns. :)
executivebodyguard: Do you take orders ? How much would one like this cost ?
Eric Adams: @pastthebrink The airbrush will give smoother coverage, and you can
regulate the intensity of the color by spraying more or heavier coats. The
swabs will dump on a whole lot of color, making it next to impossible to
achieve lighter coloring.
Eric Adams: @hedgehog23 Thanks! This was 8-9oz Herman Oak.

steve m: I want to make a holsters for my guns as well as my friends, thanks for the
input your video was a great help.
Eric Adams: @CharlesWilliamOwens5 You can get airbrushes for very cheap, and very
expensive, and anywhere in between. If you have a hobby shop close by,
swing by and check them out. You can also order them online. Some people
are very happy with the really cheap kits you can buy from places like
Harbor Freight. Mine is a Badger 150 that I've had since maybe 1995.
hedgehog23: Great thanks for the response. The Colour scheme on this holster is great,
mind sharing the product and colours?
Eric Adams: @gswiaczny It's a Tippmann Boss - hand powered, sews up to 3/4" thick
leather. Works great, but I'm wishing I'd bought a powered machine instead
