I made this holster for my new Navy Six. I have a holster that fits my Colt Navy, but it's about two inches longer than it needed to be, is open topped and doesn't have pistol belt hooks.
I went and scratched around in my leather bin for a satisfactory bit of leather to cut a holster from but could only find some tan leather I didn't like the color of, luckily I had some gun stock stain that made it a much nicer color.
And one with the other holster.
It's all hand sewn with an awl and needle.
The one I made is more "cavalry" style, I often wear a pistol when riding my ATV and anyone who rides ATVs or Dirtbikes knows you get COVERED in dust, I wanted the top of the Colt Navy covered to help shield it. Another detail I added was a small tab at the bottom of the holster to run a lanyard though so I can secure the holster to my leg, that way it's not bouncing around and banging against my thigh when walking or riding. Lastly I added a pistol belt hook so I can have the option of attaching it to my webgear. Both holsters have a regular belt loop with a quick release so I can remove the gun without needing to undo my belt or draw it from the holster.
My leather work usually looks like shit but I'm quite pleased with how it turned out, and the Navy is nice and snug in there without being difficult to draw or holster it, I can hold the holster upside down with the flap unbuttoned and shake it and the gun won't come out unless I actually pull it out.
I also made this little tool to help with poking the stitch holes, I've been meaning to buy one for awhile, dunno why it didn't dawn on me to just make one.
