Gun Leather II

Gun Leather II
June 12 – June 16, 2017
Gun Leather II has been created to expand methods and techniques learned by students in Basic Holster making. This class will take students to the next level of gun leather constructions. Students will review principles learned in Basic Holster Making with emphasis on development of a gun belt, holster, and associated leather for a complete gun rig. The remainder of the class will give students the latitude to develop projects of their choice
associated with guns, knives, and cartridge retention. Students will be required to provide their own firearms and knives for project development.
Robert (Bob) Calkins is an active shooter, hunter and firearms collector who has made gun leather for himself,friends, and customers for over 50 years. In 1990, he and his wife, LaVon, decided to establish 3 Cross Custom Gunleather as a part-time business. Upon retiring from the Department of the Interior in 1994, gun leather became a full-time occupation. Bob crafts gun rigs for cowboy competitors, which has included State, National, and World Champion shooters. Hunters, outdoorsmen, casual shooters, and concealed-carry holders, make up the balance of his business.
At age 75, Bob has cut back on working hours, but still produces several holsters and gun belts every week. In his opinion, there are numerous good leather craftsmen. However, he believes an individual with a true appreciation of firearms and their use is essential to building a truly functional piece of gun leather.  For a complete tool list click here.
