If you’re looking for holster making supplies then you know how cool of a feeling it is to create something with your own two hands. In this day and age, everything is pre-made and available to be shipped to your door in 48 hours or less. Drive thru restaurants mean you can get a meal in just a few minutes. The internet makes it easy to Google a question and have an answer in seconds.

Really, ordering a holster is easy. If you have a vague idea of what you’re looking for and you read some reviews, you can get a holster that fits your firearm and that will serve you well. But you know, there’s something really amazing about sitting down and making a holster with your own two hands.

That’s why in today’s post, we’d like to dive into why making things is important. Do you need to make everything? Certainly not, but as Henry Ford once said, “Chop your own wood and it will warm you twice.”

Is It Worth It to Do It Yourself?

Are you the type of person who appreciates learning about how things are made? If so, making a holster might just be up your alley. Do you enjoy the wonderful feeling you get when you’re doing something you love for yourself? Once again, making a holster for your firearm might be for you.

There’s a wonderful TED Talk from Simone Giertz about the importance of making useless things. In it, she talks about her first invention, a helmet that brushed her teeth for her, as well as how it inspired her down the road to creating other robots like her drone that gives hair cuts, her face-slapping alarm clock, vegetable chopping device. On the topic, she had this to say: “I’m not an engineer. I did not study engineering in school. But I was a super ambitious student growing up.” The end result? Making things for the sake of making them. The takeaway? There’s a joy in creating something with your own two hands even if it isn’t perfect.
