Honestly it looks like you've built some basic skills but you're work needs to improve considerably to command the prices you are asking. You also need to have more than two models of firearms you can immediately build for. You may have gotten the cart a bit before the horse in this case. Please don't take this wrong it is meant as an honest answer to your question.

Welcome to the forum, gents. Sherm, I have to agree with Denster. I also think that if you are going to offer holsters for only 2 weapons, you could have made them for more popular CCWs than the ones you chose (a 1911 and a snubbie K/L frame for instance) to interest a wider audience. You have a way to go yet, son. Keep at it, and don't get discouraged. DON'T quit your day job just yet. BTW, I like your website........

I think you've gotten some solid advice here. I dig your work, personally.
I'm going to be looking for a new leather rig for the 1911 I'm building right now, this may be just the ticket. Are you going to offer dealer pricing or volume pricing? Good luck to you, for sure. I'm a big fan of small business. Mostly because the quality and customer service is far above what you get from the larger companies.
Good job on the site, and I hope you get rolling. I'm sure you'll be fine once you get more models out. Are you willing to do rigs for someone if they have a gun you don't have listed? Are they to send it to you so you can set a mold, or how are you going to handle that?

Hello everyone. Thanks for all the advice. Yes I only have two models shown but as stated on the order page I'll buy a trainer for any model the customer wants, (if one is made for it that is) so I can mold the holster. I know I'll take a hit on the profit but to me it will be worth it. I will sell a holster and also have the trainer/ blue gun. I've checked out hundreds of holster makers and i think my prices are competitive, specially for one hand made, most are machine sewn and machine pressed. Personally I like the hand molded look to machine pressed. Each there own I guess, it can only get better. Roger @ horusholsters.com
