    What did you do to get that effect on the barrel? "Jewelled", you said.

    That look great! I am also curious how you polished and jeweled the barrel. And how did you apply the nail polish without making a mess? Since we are showing off custom stuff, here is my "custom" SERPA holster.

    I like it a lot, it provides great retention. I also have a leather Galco Side Snap Scabbard. That Galco has to be the most comfortable holster I have ever worn, and it holds the pistol closer to my hip.

    my leather sheath is a De Santis that does not use a belt but has the molded suport that slips inside the pants (paddle). i like it because i can remove it without undoing my belt.
