Re: **Handmade IWB Holsters**

I have one of Dick Funk's original holsters for the P-64. I still carry it almost daily. I had been alternating a PA63 and the P-64 in that holster and recently discovered it fits a llama 32 nicely. I bet Dick didn't intend to build a universal holster, but it has served me well. Later Don

CZ 82 Refinishing

Hey Norm, I was reading this article about duarcoat and ceramic header paint. I'm still confused about how far I need to take the gun down. I have an old sestima that is a great 1911, but looks bad. I have access to a bead blaster. How far do I need to take the 1911 down for bead blasting. You may n...

reloading for home business

I still have failures. Yesterday, I weighed several finished bullets to see if I had put powder in them. I had. My biggest fear is to omit the powder or not put in enough, thereby having the primer send the bullet down the barrel about 2 inches. If this happens to me, I would know to check the weapo...

**Handmade IWB Holsters**

Today, I ran a bunch of errands to get ready for next weeks camping trip. I came back from Wal-Mart and started getting the camper ready. I didn't intend to wash it, but before I knew it I was in the zone. Two hrs. went by before I realized that I had worn my Dickfunk holster the whole time. It was ...

Reloading the 9x18

Check this out at Cast Boolits. They are trying to organize a group buy for a 9X18 mold and brianintheup might be the honcho. Any of you guys want a new mold at a good price you might want to jump in. By the way I use an All American and a Tru-line jr. by Lyman and a Lee to deprime. http://castbooli...

**Handmade IWB Holsters**

big54r, I also have a "belly with handles", and have no problem with printing. Usually wear a light coat or sport coat, but I have been shopping with the holster only covered by a sweat shirt. It seems to have a very snug fit, and I don't foresee me doing anything active enough to shake it loose. No...

Overwhelmed with Info

olympus, It sounds like you are describing dickfunk's holster. Well made, comfortable, (while driving) concealbale. I wore mine the other day for 10 hrs. Drove 150 miles, went to funeral, got a funny look from a lady that hugged me. Great holster. Later Don

Gunneyrabbit, I use solder to mix with pure lead. It doesn't take much. A guy on another forum said that he was a brass whore before he became lead whore. Normsutton, Do you use gas checks with 7.62X39 and 54R? I have not cast these bullets but that is my next step. I don't have a sizer. Just been u...

Don't laugh - 1st try

Great job. I have done some holster work and like Barnett3006, I have awled myself. By my calculations, you have made all 3 of those holsters since September 18. I have 2 holsters on order from Brigade since May. My finger (the one with the awl hole) is poised over the Paypal button, so when you dec...

J&G selection

bartoszsitarski, You made the right decision. I would never advocate not buying a gun except in extreme circumstances, like a pending marriage. I've been married for 38 years and I have purchased a lot of guns and you will too if you keep that futuristic attitude. Later Don
