    I just got this one in from a local leather maker. I sent him a few holsters I had so he could look them over an maybe come up with a design style for a Rodisan Style Holster, so this is what he came with for me. We discussed what I was looking for in this style andI gave him my thoughts on what I wanted. First I wanted it to fit a 1.5" belt, second I wanted a little higher ride than my Thad Rybca Rhodesian style( I sent him my Thad Rybca to look at and get some inspiration for his design) well I think he did a great job on it, my Wilson CQBE fits perfectly in it. I haven't worn it yet but I will tomorrow and give a report on how it does. Here are some pics. 20200710_144715.jpg 20200710_144439.jpg 20200710_144602.jpg

    Good looking. Open muzzle bottom, I presume? How’s the retention?

    It looks like there is a lot of room between the top of the slide and where the leather stitching starts.

    Retention is great as far as room between the top of the slide is not that much and yes the bottom is open, I'll take a few more pics.

    Here you can see the difference in the two holsters, he told me that he did not want to make an exact replica of the Rybka style Rodisan so I told him to put his own spin on the design, this is his his first try at this design and I think he did a good job in making it, but not copy it. Here are some pics of the two side by side for comparison the rough side out black is the Rybka I sent him. The third pick is my new one, the fourth is Thads, the last two shows what it looks from the top. 20200710_203330.jpg 20200710_203346.jpg 20200710_203247.jpg 20200710_203311.jpg 20200710_203434.jpg 20200710_203207.jpg 20200710_203132.jpg

    Very nice looking holster. Since you wanted it to ride higher than the Rhodesian, I assume you are going to use the holster for concealment? Interested in how that works out.

    Nice looking holster with the double stitching pops I like it.

    Does he have a web site?

    I sent you a PM with his information. Yeah I thought about seeing how it conceals with the higher ride.

    I prefer higher-riding holsters, so hope you like it.
