    Some new Kydex....

    I had some time and some leftover tan Kydex so I thought I would give some new holsters a try...

    The first is my first attempt at a bender with a belt loop slot cut out.. It does make a big difference in how you can wear it....





    And next we have a very HIGH riding Bikini II. I really like this holster. It is by far the fastest holster I have ever used.. One does need a heavy duty gun belt for this type of holster. Thankfully my gun bet is perfect for it...

    You certainly know how to make a 'minimalist' holster. Serious question: Will the pistol stay securely in place if you have to run?

    Nice craftsmanship !!!

    I've got to try one day; it is nice to have it "your way", and I could add a fourth box to my three boxes of holsters

    They are a lot more secure then they look..

    My most used holster is this one..



    And with all the hours of napping getting in and out of my wife's little car working in the shop o and chopping wood I have not had it come loose... I will admit I have not done any sprinting with it on I don't move very fast anymore

    I did make this one a lot lower in the front to see what would happen..It still is held in place really well. With a little Rem oil it is super fast..

    Time will tell how well it holds up. One thing for sure you need a good belt

    The bender looks great! It's not too hard to cut out that belt loop hole.
