    My newest holster...

    Hey everyone. Just wanted to show you my latest holster for my Kimber Pro Carry II. I have been making holsters for a while and just wanted to brag about my latest holster. I made this one for my Kimber because it just graduated Sunday to "Reliable" for carry as it completed it's "break in" period...Oh how great it is to see everything through the 10 ring (rubber backstop) . Wish my Glock 23could do that, that's why it is now replaced Anyway, just wanted to share....
    By the way I have many other holster pics for other models if desired.
    Thanks,
    Nick.

    It's amazing how many people on this forum are making their own holsters. Nice work, Nick.

    Nice work Nick.

    I'm sure I speak for most of us when I say that I never get bored of looking at holster pics, post as many as you want.

    Haha - worry not - even my newer belt seems to show some sag and yet - my OWB carry (K&D Eagle Defender) sits just dandy - and tight in too.

    I do find that if I cinch up enough to prevent any ''sag'' appearance at all it is just too uncomfortable. I doubt actually many folks if photographed will not show some apparent sag but - if consistent and comfortable, as well as firm, then no worries.

    Nice Holster. Consider bending the Tnut flat and building it between the leather pieces. Just a suggestion, there's no "rule" on how to make holsters. You're doing a fine job, as is.



    Now, make yourself a gun belt. Get two straps 1.5 inches wide. One your waist size plus 7 inches, one your waist size plus 11 inches. Glue and stitch them together, edge them, and throw a buckle on there and some holes. You'll never wear that holy one again, I promise.

    Beleive it or not this is a dickies belt from walmart like 6 years ago. I can't even imagine how great this holster would feel with a good gun belt. Sorry jarhead, I havn't ventured to belts yet.

    Very nice.

    I have been wanting to try my hand at Kydex. I just don't see me getting the leather to do what I want it to.
