2 Bear Creek Holsters Ordered
« on: January 24, 2012, 07:47:51 PM »
Yesterday, I spoke with Doug at www.bearcreekholsters.com and ordered 2 holsters from him:

Front Pocket Holster-Rohrbaugh R9--Left Handed--Mahogany--Black Shark Accent--Mahogany stitching on black shark accent--Black stitching on tab section of holster

IWB Holster-Rohrbaugh R9--Left Handed--Mahogany--black stitching--Sweat Guard--Forward Cant


I'll update this thread with photos when they arrive.  I'm guessing it will be at least 14 days out.  Doug explained to me about the drying process for the leather and why manufacturing takes the amount of time that it does. 

I got an education. 

Doug was very nice and has actually started making them even before he sent me the invoice!!  The guy is on top of it!    - and don't worry Doug, I sent payment this evening for them!

I'm looking forward to getting these bad boys in and to put them to some use.

Thanks again,
Adam


Note:  I spoke with Doug today and he is expecting to mail out the holsters tomorrow or Saturday.  I absolutely cannot believe how quickly he is making both holsters.   - Pics will follow when they arrive.

I had to let thor447 know the holsters will not mail until Monday.  Forgot about doctors appointment yesterday that took me away from holster making.  Here is a picture of his front pocket holster.  Left Handed, Mahogany with a black shark accent/thumb push off.  He asked to have the thread used for the shark accent to be mahogany instead of black and to use black thread around the tab portion of the holster.  I like that the mahogany thread helps accent the black shark a little better.  He had a good idea!!!

The holsters arrived today.  Bear Creek did a fantastic job.  The flash on the camera made the leather look lighter than it really is.  Pictures attached:
