I only bought mine from you cause you were using pig. Course now I have more and better reasons. Like good work and fair prices

Hey, Big One, forgot to ask. Did you get the Mossberg chokes yet? Also, I know I like the pigskin you use but these are the only lined holsters I've ever had. Never even thought about it when I made my stuff years ago. I had enough trouble hand stitching what I was using. What is the main difference with calfskin?

holster linings

I have had so many holsters over the last twenty years that my wife once told me, "no more new brought into this house holsters." That was during my law enforcement career. (When I buy new holsters now I put em in the garage 8) )

Now I fancy my mission in life is to shoot in CAS matches as my "full-time" job. I currently have unlined holsters but only because of my retired financial status. (and the wifes edict) :eek:

Over the years pigskin seemed like it was longer lasting, and dosen't abrade, tear or scuff nearly as quick as calfskin. Pigskin always seemed to be "Slicker" on the draw as well. Last, pigskin seemed to show less holster wear on the guns.
