    My first home made holster :)

    Well it ain't pretty, it's made out of duct tape, bow string, and a hair tie lol. Naa black widow 22 mag (my river gun). I think it's pretty cool looking myself, has great retention because the only way it's coming out is if I forcefully take the part of the hair tie that covers the hammer off of the hammer. tested it and its very solid. I suppose if I had to be fast I could pull the hammer back hard enough to shoot while its holstered but it's solid enough that its not going to get cocked while in my pocket. I feel I could also make some simple alterations so it is usable.

    Looks like that tape has the potential to place constant pressure on that trigger. So if you cocked it while it was still in there..... Be careful with that thing.

    You know given the market out there for holsters made for black widows it wouldn't be a bad idea.

    Hence why I made this because I can't find anything for what I specifically want.

    And by market I actually mean options that are out there.

    Here is what you do--call it a custom-made, one-of-a-kind whatever, charge a hundred bucks for it and wait for the orders and rave reviews to roll in. Someone will swear it is the most comfortable and concealable miracle holster they have ever owned, and be giving it fantastic reviews.

    I feel sure that there would be a market with the anti-gunners, Just advertise that the tape has the sticky side next to the gun. Once the gun is holstered it would be impossible to remove.

    You laugh..Most anti gunners believe stuff like that..

    Lol what is funny is my original design was actually that way. Granted I had string separating it but still a big fail the first time lol

    I don't know, turn the last layer of tape around and you have a sticky holster.

    KnifeKits.com™ : Knife & Gun Making Supplies and Tools , get a kydex sheath kit with the mount option you like. Watch you tube vid on how to. Custom holster that will be miles ahead of 100 mile an hour tape .
