I went to Bobby McNellis at El Paso Saddlery to have these made for me when I needed a competition rig back in 1986. Bobby and I met at the newly forming action matches being held at the Ft. Bliss Rod and Gun Club back in the mid-80's. While not a close friend, he was a good friend and I was saddened to hear of his passing. I used the leather in the first ever Smith and Wesson Masters competition. I placed fifth in the Sportsman category, but not due in any part to my speed shooting skills I wasn't certain that I'd ever see the leather again after leaving Florida seven years ago. Bobby used my Coonan to make the blocking gun so that the holster could be formed. I recently contacted El Paso Saddlery and they still have the original blocking gun. I really like the looks of their 1930 Austin and plan to order one with belt and magazine holders done in basket weave soon. Ahhhh, good times, good memories Rest in Peace Bobby.
