This is a madly beautiful race holster that I made for a S&W 627 Pro.
I don’t mind being quite proud of this holster. I kind of stretched myself to make this one come out just so. I actually scrapped my first design when it was almost complete because it didn’t look quite right. The redesign was well worth the effort, as you can see from the end results! It is made of five panels of shoulder hide – four on the body and one for the belt loops. The entire thing is hand-stitched together with Kevlar thread. I utilized a new, five-step molding process to make it fit the gun perfectly without retention or significant drag, thus holding the gun securely, yet maintaining a silky-smooth draw. This particular holster took three separate applications of two different red dyes to achieve the rich color. After the clear coat, in person it looks deep enough to dive into. Consequently, it’s also hard to photograph the color accurately.
I will be playing with this design some more, as it has simply worked out too well to not do anything with it again.
I think I may do some kind of exotic or hair-on next time around. Or, maybe I’ll go with yet another daring color! As I said, the draw is very smooth on this one, and it should do really well in matches.
I’m planning to ship this one to its new owner tomorrow. I hope he’s at least as impressed with it as I am!
