I have had a couple of people in real life ask why I haven't done a holster post in a while. I live quite a distance from the nearest Tandy shop, and generally don't go just for leather. I did not select my own leather last time, a significant mistake. The leather I got was on sale, and a good price--but awful in quality. The rough side was almost fuzzy with a ton of loose fibers, and the thickness was extremely variable--a lot of it is either far too thin or far too thick for the holsters I am making.
I've got a decent chunk of leather now, so I should start back up soon.
