As you all know, I am TINY, so I've spent a lot of time getting custom sized gear. My jackets have to be specced in every dimension and my trousers are bespoke too.

So the next logical step was the holsters, and seeing JTW's full sized Webley holster at the RMS I can tell I made the right decision.

Solent, was impressing me with his fledgling holster work so I asked if he would mind trying to make slightly smaller Raiders and Webley style holsters for me. So after a little experimentation here are the results, I can now wear the Webley style without it looking like I have a hunting rifle!

The larger Raiders holster is a Noel Howard.

Solent was extremely good to work with. Very nice guy too!

Very well done.

Now you just need the scaled down revolvers

This is a great idea, KT! I appreciate you bringing this up, as there are probably other members of smaller stature who might be interested. This "concern" dawned on me one day when I was admiring some photos of a smaller member in full gear. What stood out to me, was the size of the MKVII bag, which is another item that is "one size fits all." Though the strap is adjustable, the bag is what it is...
Since then, I thought it might be cool if one of our Vendors was to offer a scaled down MKVII bag for smaller members and kids. :)


I can now wear the Webley style without it looking like I have a hunting rifle! This really made me laugh; even at 6'4" I felt that the Webley holster looked enormous on me when I first geared up with it!!!

Great thread!
