Looks like the guy is making things pretty much like the Crossbreeds. As far as I can tell in the pictures, it's good quality work for significantly less money. And honestly, I like to see that.

Nice work!

What brand is that hybrid holster you bought? It looks to me like there isn't enough leather to move the clips out away from the kydex. I played with some similar designs and never...

Plenty. .060 might be a little thin for that purpose, but .080 or thicker should work just fine as long as you don't wear your belt super tight. Have you considered a strip of stainless steel with...

Sorry it took me so long to get this up here. My wife had a baby followed by an appendectomy, followed by a series of unexpected bills and time off work. Not quite the month we had planned. I...

I like that key holder. A kydex version would have to be quite a bit different, but I really like that. I do construction work and some shade tree mechanicing and I'm also getting scratches on my...

I've only done XDs, as thats the only pistol I have right now. I tried using it as an excuse to buy more, but the wife didn't go for it. I suppose I could buy some models for the more common...

Came up with an in the pocket mag holster. I usually just drop a mag in the back pocket of my jeans, but the mag falls over and bounces around so I never know where in the pocket it's going to be. ...

Tonight I made an all kydex mag holster that can be worn either IWB or OWB. It's just a rough version so nothing too fancy yet. The clip on the final version will be much better than this one; I...

I use a combination of wooden forms, foam, leather gloves, toaster oven, and heat gun. I cut it before molding by scoring it with a utility knife and snapping it. After molding, I trim it up with...

My Homemade Holsters

I wanted to try an IWB crossdraw holster and couldn't find a reasonably priced option so I decided to make my own. I'm pretty new at working with leather and Kydex, but it's surprisingly simple. I...
