Is this the type of
Y
unit you are thinking of?
I can make it so it swivels
by using just one anchor
point or I can make it
permanent in place.
Your thought.


As for the Dual Belt tie down
Shown here in soft brown.
2 things:
1: The soft brown will allow
more  movement
2: The other leather will be
more rigid.
Do you want to attached to the
back of the holster of inside the
suede lining?

Your thoughts
Pictures does not show true color
If in other leather color would match holsters

The Final Product
With The
Touch of AGE
Darien Mattison
Ammo strip
Above see  a strip with 12 ammo loops where the red
arrow points to where the center of the back would be.
If I use this strip everything would be centered on your
back when finished.
Above you can see a 20 round strip where the rted
arrow  is pointing to where your center back would be.
The result of using this strip will mean the ammo strip
will loop around the right side of your body almost to the
point where the holster would be if it were on the right
side.
WHICH STRIP
WOULD YOU
LIKE ME TO
USE?
