    Hey y'all!
    Anyone make their own Kydex holsters?
    Just recently started making IWB and OWB holsters as well as mag holsters. Soon I hope to tan some leather and make some IWB kydex/leather holsters as well.

    Even got a little girlie colors in there ;)
    Needs some tweaking but it's pretty comfy appendix. I've wanted to try appendix but don't want to spend a bunch of money on holsters just to find I can't or don't like it.
    Just added this gun to my permit so need a holster. Didn't want to wait 6-8 years to have one made ;). Ya I know it's 6-8 weeks (feels like months) but It doesn't take us even 6 hours to make one.
    Just finished a matching mag holster to add to this. Have an OWB in the works for a friend too.
    Quality time with my hubby makes it even more fun. :)

    Some people have minds that work overtime. Double R and Savage Guy are those type of people. Next they will be building innovative mouse traps. That is some fine work gal and you have to be proud. As far as color combinations: do you have a "glow in the dark" florescent green? If I can't find my pistol in the dark at least I can find my pistol then I can be shooting. Also this should work as a deterrent to bad guys. They will say: See dat holster? We ain't gonna mess wid her. Dat kinda holster scares me and she gotta be carrying a cannon......:eek:verreact:We gots to run!!!!!
    Good job kiddo!!!!!

    I highly recommend this guy/videos. After watching and researching for months this guy is by far the most down to earth and honest. He walks threw EVERYTHING.
