I got one step closer today. Finished the knife sheath. Just have to complete the second holster now.

Thanks Capt! It's all a learning experience for me.

The rig is now done. All that's let to do is wring it out on the range. I'll let you know how it performs.

Nice dang work there Dave. I think you have more patience than me when it comes to making belt rigs.

Ah, my work is not better than yours.

I hear you on the fingers. I have recently developed arthritis in my right hand and wrist and leather work just became challenging.

Arthritis is my problem too. Fingers and hands cramp up bad. It sucks to get old, but it's still better than the alternative.

Hi Dave, very nice rig! You sure are talented working with leather. I really like the pistol and knife grips.
