    New minimal home made kydex for J frame

    Had a little kydex left over from my last ones, so...

    I would have just bought a clipdraw for it, but being left handed it didn't seem like any simple way to make it work. This is almost as good, because it's narrower than the cylinder.

    I again made this sit really low for maximum concealment, but since the one loop is at the vertical balance point, it's easy to slip your hand under.

    Hardware and loop are from Comp Tac. BTW, those are snap caps in there.

    **Based on advice received on this forum, this design is patent pending. I'm filing for provisional patent. Any holster makers interested?**

    It depends on how you are with making things. I just used a dremel with an abrasive cutting wheel to cut the shape out, and a heat gun to form it, and a power drill for the holes, and a mini drum sanding attachment for the dremel, and sandpaper from 120 down to 1600 grit for the smoothing out. That's all. If you've never worked kydex, there are some tutorials floating around on the web. Fun to work with in my opinion. Toxic, though, when it's heated up. Wear a respirator if you have to work indoors.

    That holster actually looks pretty good. However, I have trouble breathing and blinking at the same time!

    Great 3-D pictorial. That's pretty clever with the cylinder cutouts. Looks very . . . concealable!

    Very nice! I like the cylinder cut outs. Cuts down on the bulk of the holster and makes the gun even more concealable with out any detriment to the integrity of the holster. Very clever. I believe you could sell these for sure. Or maybe sell the design to a company that makes holsters.

    In fact, if I were you, I'd remove the pictures before the idea is stolen and then run it past some holster makers. Might want to get it pat tented first. I really do like it. I am not trying to be funny.

    Mind if I ask where or how you came up with the idea for the cylinder cut outs?

    from the looks of his sig line, I'd say he was an HM3. I was an FC1 myself when I got out.

    Wow, thanks, guys... yes, an HM3. Cylinder cutouts just seemed to make sense. OK, guys based on your advice, I'm declaring 'Patent pending' and filing for a provisional patent. People seem to like this. It would be nice if it could be manufactured because handcrafting it would cost a lot.
