    Made My Own Holsters and Mag Carriers (PICS)

    Well, after reading the how-to and seeing what other people have done I took the leap. Bought Kydex and chicago screws from Knifekits.com and they showed up 3 days later. 1 sheet 12x24inches gave me, 3 .22LR mag carriers, S&W 22a holster, 3 USPc mag carriers and for fun flared mag well for S&W 22a plus mag base extensions.

    All the mag carriers were cut to angle the mags about 18* backward.

    I am aware that I used the shiny side of the kydex for the outside on the mag carriers. That was not a mistake, I chose that side to show.

    The holster was also not pressed for the vacuum look. Just folded over and edged with a solid metal tool. Sanding is a pain in the butt, I did it all by hand. Only power tool used for the whole operation was a drill. Even cut the kydex with metal snips.















    I have a new appreciation for what Comp-Tac delivers when you order a holster or mag carrier from them.

    And yes, mine are not THAT pretty. But they sure do get the job done at the range.

    LOL, I am getting hassled right and left on my SHORTS from every forum.

    They are plaid boater shorts.



    But thanks for the compliments everyone. I enjoyed what I was doing but when its time for a quality holster and mag carrier I will definitly leave it up to professionals.

    COOL !

    One of the coolest holsters I've ever seen was a home-made job - guy had semi-transparent plastic that he molded around his glock - made an iwb out of it and it looked really cool.

    Great job!

    Thanks for the compliment. I do want to make a press and redo my holster so its cleaner looking. Wouldn't mind making one for my USP for OC as well. But when it comes down to it, I would rather just pay for a quality piece when others will see it.
