    Nah, guys, nothing to show. Right now I'm only finding a small amount of time to do this hobby during the weekends. I've puchased all the leather and hardware, and am still working on the new holster molds (which I hope to have finished this weekend). However, I've been so busy with work, family, and my son's new football schedule that I've considered the possibility of issuing refunds and calling off the run.

    I'm trying to not let anyone down, but if there's anyone on the run list that this time frame just isn't working out for, please let me know and I'd be more than happy to refund your money and have one less holster assembly to worry about.

    Thanks

    Don't worry about it Cruzer. I still want a set, but there is no real rush for me. I don't think I will be getting my Jango gear done for Halloween any way. I really hope you don't call off the run as I am eager to have a set of your holsters, but I understand if you decide to do so. For my set you can take as much time as you need. Thanks.

    No worries about the run, it's just off to a slow start mostly due to the actual making of the holster molds taking some time. Once the new molds are finished by this weekend, then production can go twice as fast as previous runs. This weekend I'll also be cutting up all the leather. So, I estimate the first of the holsters assemblies starting to ship within 2 weeks.

    I'm still in on the run Cruz. I understand the busy schedule. Whenever they get done, they get done. Myself, I work fulltime along with my wife, we two have kids in elementary school, both my wife and myself go to college part-time, plus I am a peewee football coach, with both our kids playing sports. Then I get home with 10 PM's over at CT.net about people wanting me to make things for them. You are not alone in all this crazyness, it is a balancing act for sure.

    Ok guys. Got a bunch of work done on the holsters this weekend, so progress is going good. The new holster shape looks really good, and I did something different with the d-ring holder piece which makes the design more accurate. I'll post some progress pics tonight. I expect the first 3-4 assemblies to ship by this weekend. I do have enough leather left over for 2 more assemblies if there are any interested members.

    Thanks,
    Cruzer

    A few progress pics. This pair will belong to slave1pilot after a little bit of weathering, affixing everything to a belt, and adding the post hardware. California just recently passed a law banning all alcohol based leather stains, so I still have to get used to the color results of the new Eco-Flo line of water based stains carried by Tandy. After a little bit of testing, I realized it takes three different color applications just to get a finish similar to Seeker's ammo belts. The color below isn't that, but is one application of Java Brown. The d-ring holders are spray painted with Rustoleum Aluminum.

    Enjoy

    Looking awesome Cruzer! The new holster mold looks great. That stinks about having to use the water based stains. I guess everything is going that direction though. It looks like you have figured out a good color combo to make it work. Thanks for the pics.

    Wow Cruzer! Those look great! I'd like to watch you make a set some day, haha. I'm interested in how you get such perfect shapes every time.

    Lorenzo,
    since this setup is for Michelle's Custom , don't worry about making it an accurate shade.
    You can send it how it is.
    She'll be more than happy with it.

    I actually enjoy making these (somewhat theraputic) so I'd be up for a second run after I finish this one by next week. However, I'd need at least 4-5 interested members due to the amount of leather I have to purchase. If there's enough interest, I'll start a second run list in the original post.

    Slave1pilot, that's the final color. It's darker brown in person, but the flash...

    Nice!! i want a set!!
    ...you have a set already!

    Here's a comparison pic of the V3 design on the left and the new shape on the right. Both holsters are the same length but just look different due to the one on the right not being level with the other. The slight changes I made are in the nose, and narrower shaft and top opening. I think they make them a little more accurate, but give me any feedback you have if you see something I need to change.



    Thanks,
    Cruzer
