Holster I made
 
1 Attachment(s)
I was tinkering in my shop the other day and ran across a piece of plexiglass. I decided to try and make a holster. So I heated it up in my little oven and wraped it around my glock 26 and wha la. What do you think?

'Clearly' a holster that is 'not seen' everywhere.

That's pretty cool. N8 is now using Lexan for their Professional model holster. They found the Kydex was sensitive to heat from a hot gun barrel. Lexan apparently holds its shape better.

Have you tried your skills with Kydex? I'm just curious as I think I may give it a try just for fun and a side hobby. Just not sure what is used for a heater.

Bullet resistant holsters. Interesting concept.

better judged by twelve than carried by six.

Not to take away from your work, but I just found this. Now just have to find where to buy sheet kydex.

Yes I have, I actually took and remolded a kydex holster that was made for a sig p220 and made it fit a glock 19 with no problem. The only that is I don't have the right foam yet, just a heat gun and did it by hand. If I had the right tools for the job I think I could do real well with it.
