Forming Leather Holsters
Here is a little kink in shaping scabbards and holsters for rifles and pistols: After wrapping the arm with a greased cloth, take a roll of rubber tape, such as is used in winding tires or electric wire joints, and wind over the cloth tightly, Lapping slightly so as to make a moisture proof cover. The tape not only protects the arm from moisture, but binds all together, so that the arm may be taken out and re placed readily. If the tape has a tendency to stick, dust the outside with powdered chalk, talc or similar powder.
