    Lets talk about gunbelts.

    With ranger belts, the ends taper to fit a buckle. Less mass up front. A money belt is like what Billy Boots described with two wide sections ovelapping and thinner tongues attached to the buckle. I'm just trying to decide on which I want to go with.

    The belt with the tongues the money belt I was describing earlier. My other belts are made that way. They are comfortable, but restrictive. It's hard to bend with mine at least.

    The main part will be fairly wide. My current one is just under 2.5". It'll be made about the same.

    Lets talk about gunbelts.

    I'm looking at making a new gun rig. Sort of a hybrid between a huckleberry shoulder holster and a traditional rig. Basically a shoulder holster holding the pistol like a typical crossdraw holding up the belt. More belt suspender than shoulder holster. I'll have it set up where I can switch between the full rig and gunbelt only with normal holsters. My question comes to the belt itself. I've only ever used "money belts" that is two layers of wide leather doubled over with two smaller pieces actually connecting via the buckle. I'm curious about the ranger style. The two wide ends taper down to accept the buckle. Think of Clint Eastwood's in "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly". Which do y'all prefer? Money belt or Ranger belt?
  5. If you need good thread try Ritza Tiger thread. You can usually get it off of Etsy. Good strong thread and usually cheaper than Tandy's. When you glue a liner into a curve, do it in sections starting in the middle and glue it curved. That's how I did my holsters and there's no wrinkles.

    Remodeling find

    In one house I found a kid's hidy hole. In it were some toys, cards, and a Marilyn Monroe Playboy. Or so I thought. I opened it up to discover that it was a comic inside. I guess the kid switched them.

    Birthday stuff

    Those marshmallows were a hit. Those kids were going ballistic! Add on cupcakes, candy, party, pool, and everything, it as a big success! My gifts to her were a talking soccer ball and a Teddy Ruxpin. She loves the Teddy Ruxpin. Now to gear up for Christmas.

    Birthday stuff

    It's birthday season in my family. Last week both my mother and I had our birthdays, and yesterday was my niece's first birthday. We're having her party tomorrow. That said we're getting things ready for it. The theme is beach bums. So everything looks tropical. Made something this morning that should give it a kick. Pictures don't do it justice and the one on the right is my tester. I'm gonna eat him once the candy coating hardens. Last night I made dirt cups out of graham cracker crumbs and gummy worms. Here in a little bit I'll be making cupcakes and decorating them like fish. She's going to have a really cute party. Only one problem. I made a rocking horse for her for Christmas and she loves it now. I couldn't find a cowgirl hat for her. None of the western stores in the area had one that'd fit her. I'd like to get her a cowgirl hat and make some chaps and a gunbelt for her for Christmas this year. (Yes I'm planning that far). If anyone has a line on a good source let me know.

    BOND is their name, and not James.

    Love Lindsey Stirling. I have several of her songs. Always fun to listen to.

    This here Saloon is meant for drinkin'!

    My longest hangover was about 10 minutes. Woke up sick and with a headache. By the time I finished my morning shower it was gone and I was fine. My friends were still passed out and I was ready to go. We'd been up drinkin' at a party.
