    Walther PPS-custom kydex gear

    I found a good deal on a PPS a few months back and purchased it for a summer carry gun(shorts and t shirt weather ). So I finally got around to making a holster and spare mag pouch to use with the PPS.
    I designed the holster with more of a high ride design , since it is such a light weight pistol and this would give me more options for shirts to wear ,yet keep it concealed.
    I tried something new with my original pocket carry mag pouch design. By adding a belt slot I can choose either belt mounted or in the pocket depending on attire and pocket space.

    Rocky that is a fantastic rig. I like every thing you did, the highrise holster as well as the mag pouch. Once you get used to kydex and or a leather kydex hybrid they make carrying an easy and natural task.

    Does the kydex shred your belt? What about the edges touching your skin in an IWB type model? Nice work BTW. The Kydex really leverages the thinness of the PPS. I have two, a 9 and a .40 and love them both.

    Looks good rocky!!!

    How thick is the Kydex?????

    With that high ride does the grip lean away from your body??

    I bet the gun is small enough to stay in close....

    Could you show us the reverse side of both the holster and the mag pouch?

    I'd hope the holster has a "flab tab" or body protector, and I've seen one of your pouches elsewhere that had a white patch of material affixed to its back to help keep it in place when it was being carried in a pocket. Can the nose of the bullets in the mag be pointed in the other direction without reversing the direction of the stabilizing outrigger tab?

    I used .040 or .060 kydex. Not sure which. I found some cheap. It tends to lean out slightly , but only due to my extra winter body insulation.

    The holster does not have a body protector, but the Walther isn't that sharp. I felt the kydex would cut into me more than the pistol would. I did not add the patch of rubber grip strip to this mag pouch but easily could.
    The mag or tab could be oriented any way you choose. I make everything custom to order of what the customer would like.
    I will get a pic of the backside of the holster , but it doesn't look much different than the front side.
    the holsters don't seem to tear up the leather belts , but the kydex does tend to lock the holster in position , rather than let let it slide back and forth.
