Default First attempt at holster making! **PICS**

I recently became interested in getting an IWB hybrid holster for my 24/7 PRO 9mm. The ones I saw online were really nice - Bluegrass,Comp-tac,Crossbreed. Well, I decided to make an IWB Hybrid holster myself . I just finished dyeing it, and still need to "finish" it, But here is a picture before dyeing.



I just finished, almost. Here are some pics. Dyed, edge coat applied, and formed(shaped)

How did you form the plastic? Do you have any problems drawing the weapon with the indentation around the port in the slide?

Very nice job. I would also like to know how you formed the plastic as well. Please share.

Thank's all. I should have been a bit more descriptive

The material is not "plastic" it is "Kydex"

This "Hybrid" IWB Holster that I crafted, I made from "Kydex" and Leather. You can do a web search for Kydex forming.

It fits, and functions perfectly! Very comfortable. When a Holster is made entirely of Kydex, you have to be careful of the formed indents of the pistol - so as not to "Lock" in the pistol. This is not much of an issue with hybrid holsters, as the leather offers some give.
