I normally wear cargo shorts and carry my 2extra TCP mags in the left cargo pocket. Of course they just flop around, so I made a little pocket magazine holder so they will stay up right and ready to grab. It will also fit my left hip pocket of my normal jeans.
I used a piece of concealex, which is similar to kydex, with a carbon fiber print. I heated it in a toaster oven, but it curls up pretty bad. It was a pain to get to lay flat enough to mold and press. So finally I just heated areas with a heat gun, and used the finger of a leather glove to form each area. It formed up better than using a foam press to mold the entire thing. One thing I noticed with the concealed is that it seems to cool faster than kydex. Once formed, I molded a curve into it so it would fit snug around the contour of my leg, or butt cheek, depending on which pocket it is in. Did a little trimming and sanding with a dremel, and was done. Its not super pretty, but effective. My next project is going to be a kydex waistband holster foe my TCP. I think I am going to shape it basically like my nemesis pocket holster, just put another "wing" on the opposite side to cut the belt loops in to.
Cool project. I like it! You did a nice job!

'I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.' Thomas Jefferson
Looks good, youngandfree.
