That holster looks great! †Love the bull frog accent. †Who's the maker? †The proud young owner looks very pleased.

I'm worried because the gun appears cocked and off safe.

I made the holster for him.  Oleg had posted a request on a forum we both belong to.  I thought the bullfrog would be a cool thing to add for a 9-year old's holster.

The gun is empty of ammo.  It was simply set up that way for the purpose of the pictures.

Kevin,
   That is indeed a fine looking holster, and a proud and happy looking owner.

Thanks for the kind words everyone - much appreciated.  

Seeing his reaction in the photos provides a great deal of satisfaction to me.  

There's more photos coming of him using the holster during some live fire exercises.  

We've been asked to make him a gun belt now.  Don't think I can find a bullfrog big enough for that though.  ;D

A good anchor for that holster would make a nice rig.

That wimpy one in the pic is not too practical.  

But, first things first.

He's off to a great start.
