Nice job molding the Kydex to the firearm. I do think that there is a good amount of excess material that could be trimmed off. :yup:
You'll want to be able to easily get into your front and rear pants pockets.

Being in my Minimalist Period myself, I agree with QKShooter: use as little material as possible for a concealable holster. Good first effort, though, with plenty of grip access and all the controls cleared. A holster will conceal best at 4 o'clock, which would then mitigate towards an increased grip-forward angle of at least 20 degrees, too. The wide spacing either side of the pistol, though, is good in that it allows the Kydex to readily release the pistol, so well done there; a holster that doesn't let go when it should, is as bad as a holster that lets go when it shouldn't :)

Nice job,make the next one smaller or trim the excess off this one. Also a bit less on the rivets or screws .

Thanks guys. I think next time I will trim the outside layer right up against where the rivets are, use less rivets, and have the back layers shiny side facing in, and then have the belt loops about half an inch away from the rivets to slender out the design.

The holster looks much larger in the pic than it is but I am pretty happy with the final product. Let me know what you think.

By the way...where did you get the materials for this project? I've been interested in tinkering around with Kydex as well.
