    Minimal home-made Kydex

    Hi, new to the site, glad I found y'all.

    This is my home made design, made in the the apartment kitchen. I like making things, but the main reason I did this is that I couldn't find anything quite like these. The closest I could find was a Comp Tac Infidel which is an awesome holster, but they don't yet make them for my guns with the crimson trace guards.

    I wanted something minimal in terms of weight, construction, and materials, but at the same time safe for my safety-less guns. Even though these are not as form fit as commercial ones, they are snug and formed around the guards enough to give the standard kydex-feel draw. The one screw holding it shut is a tension adjuster.

    I carry all day every day, and these are made to fit my body type and carry style (appendix). They sit a little lower than typical, but that makes a world of difference in concealability for me since I'm small and thin. These guns (Glock 27 and Kahr PM9) will both conceal under a normal t shirt. I find that after some practice, I get a good grip and fast draw.

    I'll take one with the Snaps style for the G27/laserguard.

    Two parallel slits cut in the kydex, threaded through.
