    Re: Lining in holsters....I've said this for years!

    I agree as well, with one exception. I like a thin leather lining on those hard plastic (kydex??) holsters. At least to me, that makes them a bit quieter and smoother. But on the whole, I don't like plastic holsters anyway.

    I'll eventually be ordering a Silver Dollar Pancake from Rob for my new SP101. Need a new job, first!

My part to stimulate the economy! So I'll be asking some Marlin specific questions along the line. I am also a big NEF/H&R fan and have more than my share of the single shots!

    I am still making CAS Cowboy and hunting leather. Mostly for friends and word of mouth customers, I do projects for other CAS shooters and donate items to my club shoots. Nothing professional, don't want to spoil a good hobby! Most of my leather crafting is self taught and learning from experience.......I have cut out several left handed holsters by accident, but then I have several lefty friends!

    I'm a Marine Viet Nam Vet and am retired fully now.......way too much time on my hands to play! I am a SASS, NRA, TSRA member!

    First of all, I appreciate this information so thank you Lever & Rap. Secondly, who is "Rob" discussed below; is that Rap? Finally, read those letters in red above - man, does anyone else miss them days

    I couldn't agree more. I've had lined and unlined and never noticed a difference.

    Rob knows his stuff - I have one of Rob's holsters for my 44 Special -

    I've been thrilled with it, the gun belt I ordered with it, and I carry it regularly and will buying another soon.

    I am a home leather old retired military guy when I first decided to work with leather I went to Tandy in Louisville and they offered classes I was going to make a holster for my Ruger and when I asked the instructor about lining he said it was a waste of time and money. I guess he was right

    Well,I glad to read that.(No liner) Of course this post is six years later. I always thought the guys who line their holsters knew more or were just that better than I do. I have done holsters that were 1/2 lined, but just for looks. The ones I make are just for my use, or the wife's for CAS shooting. I can't afford to buy gun leather, or boolits for that matter. Pounding on leather, well kinda soothes the soul.

    Thanks for the post.

    Yes, 6 years old but still stands. I get this question asked to me over and over, not in here, but on the phone or emails.

    As much as I shoot, I cannot afford to buy my bullets either, I cast and reload all my ammo for all my guns.

    Have fun doing your leather work and if you want to post some of it here to check out, feel free!

    God bless,
    Lever
