I make my own. There was a post somewhere on here with simple instructions for molding leather. I bought a bunch of odds and ends of 10-12 ounce leather from an online supplier and bought some hardware from Old Faithful. Here's the latest for my PT111. It rides high for easy draw, has just the angle of cant that I wanted, and has more than enough "pocket" to hold the gun securely. A sharp razor knife, good punches, and some patience makes these easy to make. I have a whole drawer of these IWBs for most of my guns. I'll take pictures of the step by step procedure when I make my next one.

Looks nice. Just be careful of that open trigger!! I'd suggest any new ones you make to add another inch of leather up there...? Be safe.

Most of my others cover more trigger, but with the first gen PT111's DAO and the safety on, I like the fast grip.

That looks very nice!
To answer the question, I have no holster problems because the lady I work with also makes leather holsters. She is awesome!

I can't wait to see how you did that Willboat, Looks great. I would love to see how you made the template for the cover especially.

That looks great. I'm afraid I don't have the talent to make my own.... haveto rely on store baught.
Anyone can make a pocket holster from a mousepad. All it takes is a cheap mousepad, a paper template, and a stapler. Here's one of mine with a pt709.

That is awesome! This makes me want to make my own, although I would want to use something other than a mouse pad and staples.. perhaps some material with a hint of needle and thread :guns:
