poor mans holster
But it does serve its purpose. First I measured my 380 bersa from the front of the pistol grip to the end of the barrel then I went to the hardware store (lowes) and I looked for a contractors radio or cell phone case, it measured perfect. A little modification was necessary.First I cut a slot on the flap of the case so as to let the web of your hand guard or what ever its called go through the slot, next I sewed a piece of velcro to the end of the flap and there you are. It doesn't look half bad and it makes it safe to carry. You can clip it to your belt or run your belt through the loop all for less than $10.00 I'll come back later to see who liked my idea and to see who didn't.

Whatever works… Granted, we could all save a bundle if we took a similar approach but the fact is, many of us are obsessed with this hobby. Nothing but the best will do, or close to it. I wish I could be satisfied with an over the counter gun, and one pithy holster and call it done. Unfortunately, I would likely end up like 'Nemo' at the end of the movie and say... "Now what?"

Welcome to the forum
It is nice to hear about someone doing creative and innovative things.
For future reference check out some Uncle Mikes holsters they do make affordable rigs for cheap.
There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

See? What bothers me sometimes is the economics involved with CC and the current state of economics in this country as a whole. DIY has nothing to do with cheap since what we save on one thing ends up getting spent on another. It's our focus and intent and what we do with them that make the difference.
"Serves the purpose"..........define please what purpose.
Looks? What should a CC holster look like?

For you or for the criminal that's ready to take you out?
Nothing wrong with creativity. Lord knows we all have some of that. Sometimes the big picture is rather elusive when we are on a mission to solve one thing. Usually solving one thing takes our focus away from everything else involved even though we should go one step at a time in solving a problem. Often times, the larger scope of things is what eludes us the most at the time we are most focused. It's like finding a galaxy in the night sky when you're looking for it where it's supposed to be. Let your peripheral vision see your way to the source. There's so much more.

What? You didn't spend $110+ on something to hold your gun in place? IS your life not worth more than a $10 wannabe holster? Off with your head!
Hey, if it works for you and serves its purpose, more power to you. I find it a bit surprising what people will spend on a fancy holster no one should ever see, worrying about "reholstering" a firearm that probably will never be drawn, etc.
If you're anything like me, you're probably rough on gear too. I can have a brand new Timex watch every year, or I can have a megabuck Rolex that's beat to crap in a year. Funny thing is, they both tell the same time.
