    My Covert-T - IWB Tuckable Holster - Patent Pending

    Okay, so I may have over done it with the " Patent Pending" part, but after careful thought and an afternoon filled with total and complete boredom, I made a holster out of a clothes hanger.

    Yep, I'm pretty dangerous when I'm bored and have nothing to do.

    The Holster is actually made out of a one piece hanger wire that I carefully bent into shape, only cutting the ends to form the belt clips. The pistol is held in an upright position by inserting the barrel into the barrel rest portion of the holster. The barrel rest is made by making a 180 degree bend in the wire. I placed electrical tape all around the barrel rest to prevent bore marring, but I think I'll go buy a piece of small diameter heat shrink tubing to cover the belt clips and the barrel rest area.

    Weapon deployment retention can be adjusted by spreading the barrel rest area to create a tighter fit within the barrel. The belt clips can be pressed and adjusted to a get a snug fit at the belt. When the pistol is drawn, the holster stays on the belt.

    Bottom Line: The darn thing works surprisingly well and it's also tuckable. This thing distributes the pistol weight extremely well,..and it's as light as a ....thin Piece of Wire.

    Anyway, I thought I'd share my Einstein moment with y'all. FYI, my dog's name is Einstein.

    Here it is..:

    Very interesting..

    I could easily see a Kydex version as a viable carry option. Excellent concept.

    I like it. Would never have thought of that. I'm just curious at to what the clear bit of plastic is.

    Its purpose is to cover the trigger just like any well made holster would. It is just a more minimalistic approach to achieve the the same result.

    I love minimalism, and it doesn't get any more so than this. It's probably just as good if not better than a Clipdraw. Try some really thin plated rod from the hardware store. Just to be pretty.

    I knew what it was for, I was just wondering what it was. But, a personal suggestion about your hanger, try heat shrinking it after you bend it- once it's in the right shape, heat shrink it to protect it, and keep it from messing anything up.

    It's very minimalist, with nothing covering the trigger, or any of the controls, and offers no retention.

    However, I still think that there are those who would buy them. Kudos on the creativeness though, innovation is what has made the firearms industry what it is.

    EDIT: I would think that a bit more of a curve to the hooks, like j-shape might be beneficial.

    Thanks for all the words of encouragement..!

    I'm surprised my face didn't get inundated with a bombardment of pies, ala Johnny Carson.

    I'm headed to the Shack in the morning to purchase heat shrink tubing. I'll post a few more photos of the finished product as soon as I get a chance.

    Ok, who out there hasn't made a duct tape holster for something (knife, gun)? :)
