Pictures! Homebrew Kydex first attempt; .38 Bodyguard OWB LH
This is my first Kydex holster attempt - I salvaged it this week and cut it down, re-formed the curvature of it, and finished riveting it together. It was a real disaster of a first try when I came back to it after almost a month of having tossed it into the corner, and I think I saved it! I've tested it sitting down, driving around in the car, and it really does conceal nicely. It's worth noting that I don't wear an undershirt with shorts, but I took the high road here for the sake of you all :wink: I'm a bit over 6' 3", 200lbs, and hairy as the day is long.
Two confessions though;
- That is no gunbelt I'm wearing, and I'm ashamed of it. I own a couple really excellent, true gunbelts, but they are all way too big for OWB holster wear (they are cut to length for my IWB 1911 holsters). My 5 stitch Wilderness Instructor belt is on order to fit me for OWB holsters, never fear.
- I may still need to trim as much as a half-inch of Kydex off the top edge of this holster under the grip of the gun, but I haven't gotten around to it.
