This is my first attempt at making a holster and it started out as an IWB holster buy I couldn't get the kydex reinforcing on the throat done correctly so I switched to an OWB style.
I normally don't carry with a light on the gun but wanted the option if I know I will be out after dark.
I double layered the backside of the holster and built a wedge into the bottom of it to push the top of the gun into the body and tuck it in tight.
Please excuse the stiching as I did everythign by hand.
I will wear it for the next few days to make sure I don't want to make any changes and then will work on cleaning it up and burnishing the edges.

Looks nice! If it works, it's a good holster!
That which does not kill us leaves us broken and bleeding...
Don’t mess with the guy who can barely stand up. His remaining options for self-defense don't include your survival.
