    Just enough space to make it work.

    Not entirely.

    As I see it, the pressure/retention points are:

    - All around the trigger guard
    - 80% of the slide (kydex side]
    - 100% of the slide (leather side)
    - A solid snug fit is also created between the top of the slide (line of sight) and the bottom of the trigger guard.

    The G26 snaps in without rattle/looseness and does not fall out when the holster is inverted.

    I do want to make a minor point of clarification regarding the fitment of the Glock in the Kahr holster.

    los and I did discuss that and while I would not send one out like that, nor would I in anyway say they are interchangeable, los feels that the retention is adequate and he feels it is safe.

    If that works for him, so be it, however that is his decision.

    I just don't want folks thinking it's the best way to go, the best way is to have the holster molded specifically for the gun that's in it.

    No offense to los on this, he's a big boy and can do as he sees fit.

    But there are alot of new folks out there and they easily get the wrong idea sometimes.

    Thanks, Mark.

    I appreciate all your input!

    I do accept full responsibility for any and all anticipated and/or unforeseeable safety issues that may arise during the time I choose to carry my Glock 26 in my heavily self-modified Crossbreed SuperTuck holster system that was specifically manufactured to be worn with a Kahr PM45.

    Any and all decisions to modify the subject holster were accomplished using cognitive executive motor skills which were committed and accomplished without the influence or recommendation of any other individual or entity.

    I went to the local hobby store this morning looking for some Moleskin but couldn't find any so I bought a thin strip of felt (.25 cents) to use for the backing. I already had a pair of sharp scissors and a can of adhesive spray from a previous project so I was good to go.

    I took the belt clips and hardware off the SuperTuck and traced the holster's outline on the felt with a pen. Once traced, it probably only a took a few minutes cut the felt. I then re-cut the edge of the felt about another 1/4 inch. I sprayed the felt and the back of the holster with adhesive and carefully placed the felt on the leather. I allowed the adhesive to dry an hour before I reinstalled the clips and the hardware.

    The felt backing is glued well on the leather. Not sure how long the felt backing will last but I intend to replace it with Moleskin, sooner or later.

    Anyway, I think the project came out okay. Tell me what you think.....

    - Jimmy

    I am thinking of doing a little trimming on my Supertuck at the top to make it a little easier on the draw for my P239.

    I like what you did, but am concerned that you took too much off the bottom of the leather; IMO this bottom section is what gives the Supertuck its' great support and comfort.

    Actually very little leather was removed from the bottom. There are only two small areas that were cut. I'll post a photo in about 10 minutes to show you the two pieces....


    Here's the photo showing the two small pieces of leather that were removed from the bottom. These are the only areas that were cut off from the bottom portion of the holster.




    BTW, Thanks for the nice commentary. I think you'll like the Combat Grip a lot once you cut it..!!
