Look what I just made in my garage. I was really bored. It actually fits both my PPS and my P2000. All the holes are from other attempts. I think it looks ok and it works great!

Not bad, if it works for ya', that's what counts.:22a:

Good first attempt!
If it were me I'll redo the leather part.
welcome to the forum, bornlucky, from a fellow Missourian.

Cuban, it looks like you have good things in place. Snug fitting Kydex, body shield, adjustable cant. I admire your ingenuity.

I think I would secure the Kydex to the leather with a few more rivets, after you replace the leather, since you have the placement where you want it now.

Other than that, it looks great! Be safe.

Resqr,

Thank you for the kind words. I agree, I need to leave a little more kydex on the sides and secure them down better. This was left over kydex from another project, so I didn't think it would turn out that great.

Looks perfect. Guns are tools. Holsters are tools. The purpose of both is self defense. NMNL(no more no less)

A lot of popular holster makers could probably provide prototypes that look similar... before they perfected their art. :wink:

Keep at it and we might be ordering holsters from you one day! :bier:

Thanks for the kind words everyone.


questions, what type of kydex and where did you get it from. i have been interested in doing the same in my garage.
I ordered it from knifekits.com. I ordered the .063

Cost was about 30 bux for everything. But I have alot of rivets and knowledge left over.

Thumper, I don't think I'll ever sell them. I'll make them for friends and family, but thats about it. Maybe some members on the forum with PPS's and P2000's. I'll also have my mom bring her p2000sk and see if it fits.

I'm make sure to post a DIY step my step when I get the chance. With lots of pics too.

I'm actually hitting their local tampa store today. It is right down the street from me. I might ask to see how much it would cost me to get thebasic tools to do a leather holster as well.
