    My wife noticed that the Bible my family gave me when I joined the USCG in 1982 was getting a little worn, so she took it apon herself to have a cover crafted by the same artist who made the holster for my custom Ruger 32 H&R mag. The leather will darken some with time and eventually match the holster perfectly. I'm quite tickled, so I figured I'd share with other folks who like guns, God, and good leather.

    That's awesome!

    Hey, can we get a peek at that Ruger, while you're at it? I have a soft spot for revolvers.

    Very nice, great craftsmanship on all three, holster, Bible cover and Ruger. Best of all, sounds like you did a pretty good job picking a wife.:)
