Most of the holsters I build are the Avenger style holsters with not sweat shield or thumb break. I also have made a few pancake holsters, and a few IWB holsters as well.
What I really like about the Avenger style is it really takes up less space on the belt. My son got me a pattern kit from Slick Bald for Christmas one year. I have made slight modifications to the pattern and IMO, have made it better than the original.
The instructions in Chris’ kit from Slick Bald are decent, but do have a few errors in it. I called him to explain the errors so I don’t know if they have been revised in later editions.
I have also made a couple of chest holsters with mixed results.
