    Can anyone send me one or two leather pouches since i have no leather source, I checked for leather belts, bags and leather from a shoe is too weak to do the job, nor my parents have a credit card to buy from internet.

    If you just want to shoot, I've seen some duct tape pouches pictured on here. Might be worth exploring until some leather comes your way.
    I have also seen two layers of weak leather glued together to make it stronger.

    Work gloves with canvas backs are usually not more than a couple bucks.

    Ask all your friends and family if they have any gloves or old leather furniture they are tossing out. There must be a source of leather close to you somewhere, probably cheaper than postage would have cost.

    An empty .22 casing works in a pinch.

    If you have wire cutters, you could fold the leather at the place you want a hole. Then cut through the fold in a "V" pattern. The part that you cut off should be about square leaving a square or diamond shaped hole in the pouch.

    It's not exactly quite as strong as a round hole, but leather isn't usually prone to tearing,
