    Kydex pancake style holster

    Here is a recent build . I made this with a adjustable cant (with the chicago screws). I have worn this around the house to test its comfort and practicality. Seems to work fine.
    I made this holster with a bit pinch retention. I can hop up and down and not have the gun come loose. A quick pull will release the gun(similar to Fobus)
    Sorry the pics are dark, but you can see how the holster holds the gun tight to the body.

    That's cool, I like it........now if there happens at some point in the future to be one in say Sig 226, I may have to snag it from you.

    the retention is in the trigger guard area. I have been playing with a few styles of holster.

    Looks good. Reminds me of my first rig for the P95 way back - a Fobus paddle.

    Regardless of what folks say about not keeping gun in close - mine did, and pretty well. The gun did need what I call an ''inertial'' draw, meaning brisk and snappy to break it free.

    I'd still use that today for that gun. I also found the paddle both comfortable and convenient.

    absit- I like your choice of weapon.......mine is ancient from the 80's.
    it rode most of it's life in a duty holster and now is my EDC gun.

    Let me know how the holster turns out, I may have to seriously get one as well.

    Rocky, that is one of the best looking Kydex holsters that I've seen. You've become quite good at this. Need to call it the "Bullwinkle" lol
