Thumbs up Sewing my own pouch

Finally, I made it this pouch by myself with all pockets I need it.
I hope you get the idea and you can use it!
Look at inside, has plastic so protecting against the mud and easy cleaning

Happy hunting

Awesome work! I've been pondering a comfortable fast holster for my .38 CA snubbie ultralight?...Was going to go with ankle carry, or shoulder, or even the traditional 'Inside pants Inguinal crease', but alas, that has filled itself in with fat over the years...

So you got me thinking! Maybe some sort of cool fast holster under a guys rig or off hand digging forearm even? Maybe even on top of the head? Still trying to work it all out, but you did a super great job there!

Great job ! That pouch is a lot more intricate than the one I made and use. I like your idea. I was going to make another one and add zippers and pockets too but never got to it. Thanks for the inspiration , I might get the machine and materials out and start experimenting with it again. There is a lot of satisfaction that comes with making your own stuff.

I used to have the same problem until several years ago when I added a simple piece of leather to the bottom of my holder. The Propointer rests against that and not my pants. I never had the problem again.

Why not just strap a sawed off 12 ga to the shaft of your detector?? Just think of the fun you could have it you happen to find a gopher in your plug

You do some great work.
Plus knowing about the hobby, your items are quite practical
