    latest build..IWB with Elephant trim for M&P FS

    My latest IWB holster for my M&P. I made It with a good amount of cant at 30 degrees but it conceals the full size M&P beautifully. The M&P isn't really deserving of Elephant but I had it and wanted to try it. Now that it's done I actually think the rough and smooth textures on both the M&P and holster compliment each other...so I'm glad I did use it.

    Great job. Again, such nice looking work seems a shame that it's gonna be hidden. Very good work.

    I take the opinion that any gun you carry is worthy of a good holster;) I've built probably as many exotics for poly lower guns as I have fancy 1911's over the while I've been making holsters and at first I felt like you did but I got over it;)

    Nice rig, nice job with the trim as well, but beware exotics are addicting before you know it you've got one for each carry gun and are building them left and right;)

    Thanks everyone! I think I know what you mean Luke, I already have the Frog skin reinforcement piece attached to my next holster. It's a copy of the Sparks Axiom OWB and will be for my M&P again.

    I should start another thread to ask this question but I'll just shoot it out here and see if it gets any replies...What's the consensus among makers about copying another makers styles? I know there is at least one other maker selling a copy of the Axiom holster. But, while I am only going to be making these for my own use, it still feels weird that I'm pretty much doing an exact copy of someone else's design.

    Well I don't think anyone would fault you for copying a rig for your own use. Selling them I wouldn't do it personally but some do. I pretty much take the stand that if I use someone else's design I need to find a way to improve on the idea or I won't build it. Even then I would credit the original designer and probably shoot them a note to see if they minded. Now that may be overboard but just the way I would rather do things.

    Really though it's up to you what your comfortable doing there.

    Take care!

    Luke

    Great looking rig. The first exotic I completed was for my M&P40c... I still use it today.
