Re: Small Run of Custom-Built leather holsters for FN 5.7

For those on the final list of the first batch of FN 5.7 and HK P7/M8 holsters that I'm making, I just wanted to let you know that I started cutting the exotic skins this weekend. The most requested exotic skin was elephant, followed by shark and ostrich-leg skin. All three are very good and tough e...

Re: FsN Newbie

Welcome aboard. Look all around the forum. There are plenty of valuable info for new FSN owners. This, I believe, is the most modern pistol design to date. Buy ammo from EA for serious work. Practice shooting, as others have said. Due to lightweight, it requires more concentration for accuracy, in t...

Re: Small Run of Custom-Built leather holsters for FN 5.7

Dear FN Friends, I am now closing the LIST for this batch of holsters, so that I can meet my commitment to finish this batch by Feb 15. This generated more interest than I expected in a very short time, and there were more people who wanted exotic skins on their holsters (which takes more time than ...

To BlueOrison

Blueorison, Do you have a P7 pistol, Blue? Is it P7 PSP or P7 M8? It is a very safe, accurate and very slim pistol, ideal for concealed carry. Although lately, the FN 5.7 has become my favorite EDC CCW. It is very light, and I like the 20-round capacity with EA ammo power. And of course, the low rec...

Re: Small Run of Custom-Built leather holsters for FN 5.7

Cyberfly, I'll put your name on the next batch for the Ruger P89 with a dual-mag holder.
Black? Right-handed? I don't have the mold for that pistol, but I'll get one before I start the next batch.

Re: Small Run of Custom-Built leather holsters for FN 5.7

Chameleon, Like you, my two favorite pistols are the FN 5.7 and the HK P7. Since most quality holster makers don't normally make holsters for these two (except, Del Fatti who makes good HK P7 holsters), these were the first guns that I made holsters for. The HK P7 is very heavy in the grip-section, ...

Re: Small Run of Custom-Built leather holsters for FN 5.7

Shark skin is one of my favorites. It was my first exotic skin holster ever. I got one over 12 years ago from Wilson Combat. It still looks and feels new.

Black is the best color for a concealed carry holster. If the holster is flashed by accident, the black color can still trick the eye.

To the DIRTY HEAT see Ring Lizard skin

TheDirtyHeat, Ring Lizard is a beautiful leather. Would look great with an OD 5.7
Stunning design, and can looks almost greenish-gray.

Hi Mike,
You actually inspired me many months ago, when you offered to make custom-fit kydex holsters especially developed for the FN 5.7.

If I need to torture-test my holsters someday, I will ask for Blue's help.
