    I make all of my own holsters. I just got tired of trying to find what I wanted in a left handed holster.

    This Kahr CW-40 is one of my oldest holsters. It has held up well, but I think I make a better holster now.

    Battle of Wanat: 10 years ago last 13 July, 1LT Brostram was killed in combat killing the last enemy combatant in the outpost. The LT went to the point of decision and made the difference that turned the tide of the battle. The original investigation found the Bde Cmdr, the Bn Cmdr and the Co Cmdr at fault for dereliction of duty. If you want to see what a sarcastic silver star citation reads like, pull up the company commander's silver star.

    Nice ‘scallop’ trim on the Kydex!

    Thanks, it sort of developed over time.

    Good looking holsters. My first homemade holster was a hybrid. It was just too bulky for my taste. I switched to taco style holsters and have never looked back. I have a couple holsters in process right now that I am hoping to get finished soon.

    I don't remember how many of these holsters I made (and remade) before I felt like I had the recipe right. Since the guess work is all done now, they go together pretty quick. I have several holsters styled after my old Tanker Holster from my Mech days, but I tried my hand at OWC pancakes, and I have just never got them right. If I find something for a OWC holster that works for me I may try making one again.

    I have a holster for pocket carry that works for one of my snubbies, but the rest have homes in cigar boxes kept in plain sight but high enough that the grand kids can't get to them. My wife is comfortable with a snubbie as that is what my father taught her to shoot and for some reason people keep giving them to me. Those cigar boxes all fit into my wife's decorating scheme, so no one ever gives them a second look.

    I have been carrying my 85NV AIWB for a couple of years now. I was curious if I could carry my Keltec P11 the same way so it was time to make a new holster. Since I face a case of Dunlap disease I decided that this holster should have a sweat shield. This the first holster I've made with a sweat shield. I wanted to make it usable at 4- 4:30 also in case AIWB didn't work. I set the holster up to use a strut for AIWB and two soft loops for behind the hip carry.

    Behind the hip configuration


    Strut configuration


    On. It conceals nicely under the tee shirt.


    These are the holsters I've made since I built a kydex press. The 85NV holster is ambidextrous AIWB. The 605 is my first dual layer holster. It is also ambidextrous and works well IWB or OWB. The P11 holster and a speed loader carrier I'm working on.

    I have a 140 dollar Mitch Rosen Workman IWB tuckable for my P11 I rarely wear anymore. I've stopped the habit of thinking you get what you pay for in leather.

    "These are the holsters I've made since I built a kydex press."

    LOL, I made a nice one of those Kydex presses, but I never really liked it, so I do all of mine with a clamp board, some wood cutouts, a heat gun and some insulated gloves. Once you learn how not to burn the Kydex, it is quicker and easier to use the clamp board. For me now, the hardest thing is to make the matching clips. I pretty much have settled on 1.25" wide clips out of .125" Kydex. Harder to work but much, much stronger. My J clips are pretty hard to spot.

    BTW, I don't like any holster that points the business end at my junk.
