I recently met a quite skilled leather craftsman who lives in Great Falls, Montana. His name is Norm Schertenlieb [2]. He makes some great leather holsters. His specialty is a quasi-shoulder holster that is also belt supported. It is an ideal design for comfortable field carry (but not concealed carry) of heavy frame big bore pistols and revolvers, such as .454 Casulls, various .45/.410 revolvers, and the monstrous .500 S&W X-frame wheelguns. He also makes holsters for a wide variety of smaller pistols and revolvers.
