Anyways I thought I would post a pic of what is quickly becoming my favorite rig..
I just finished the mag holder tonight.
Also the loops came from Dave at Little Bear... (Plug )

Shark and Kydex. Isn't that sort of like lace on a bowling ball? Seriously, I think you just won the home made Kydex holster contest, at least in this judge's opinion. I thought the front part with the rivet could be reduced in size, but after looking at it I think the fin in front sort of stabilizes the holster. If you brought the material up a bit higher, over the slide stop's right side, would it improve retention with very little bulk added, or would that get too far away from your minimal design? At any rate, it looks great!
What Would Gumby Do?
do you mold the front and back at the same time, or separetly ? do you use some sort of press or fit it by hand ?
Where do you buy your Kydex at? how thick?
I got a 7" blade buck knife that had nice sheath out of ? some sort of fabric but its all torn up from use. Id love to try and make a new one
That's some pretty slick work! You might also consider taping a pencil on top of your mold for a sight channel if you're planning to make and sell these (so you get good clearance even with taller sights).

Where self preservation is concerned, if you're not cheating, your not trying...
You kydex work is second to none. Very nice...I am impressed and inspired. Where are you in TN? I am in Murfreesboro.
Hide and Kydex together?! Heresy!
Seriously though, very nice work. Excellent craftsmanship and attention to detail.
That's awesome!!! Does it hold real snug? I'm guessing it would. The trigger guard looks to be locked in pretty good.
