boriqua P01
« on: March 11, 2019, 11:20:31 AM »
Wanted to give Alex a BIG shout out for his Quality craftsmanship on this Leather for a P01 Omega. What a pleasure to work with Alex although I'm sure I tested his patience with my changes !! I changed my mind on what Gun I wanted this for several times and Alex was quite kind & professional in all our conversations. I ultimately made the wrong choice cause my P01 was just sold....but that's a whole nother story on ME !!!
On to his work: the lines, stitching, molding and shape is amazingly perfect. I've had some other Leather (more costly) that did not have the detail and craftsmanship this holster offers. Turn around time was way quicker also !! My thumbs up for Boriqua if you desire a QUALITY Crafted Holster at a reasonable cost and awesome turn around time !!!

I agree 100% on the quality and professionalism of Alex and his work!
So are you keeping the holster even though you sold the gun or is the holster For Sale?
I have been nothing but pleased with all of the holsters he has made me and I get compliments on them from everyone who actually sees them.

I am bummed that you wont get to use and enjoy it!

For those that might be in position to snatch this from him should he chose to put it up for sale. It is a dark Mahogany pancake for a P01. I did  a bit of a halo with the airbrush in black and it is all hand stitched with black thread.

It is double layered. With a double layer holster I glue two pieces of 4-5 oz leather flesh to flesh. It acts similar to plywood in that the two layers are more rigid and stay rigid far longer than a single layer holster of the same thickness. It also has the benefit of being able to be blown out with air since the interior is smooth and undyed and while no holster can protect against holster wear this does a better job than a single layer holster or kydex.

It rides about mid height and pulls tight to the body. Worn at 3:30 4 oclock you can wear it with just a light shirt over it all day long and it wont bobble. I use a similar holster for hiking.

Basically you will grow bored of wearing it or sell off your gun before you wear out this holster.
