    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. N8² 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.

    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.

    excellent!

    I bought a 'professional' kydex one for my 30S and had to totally remold it before it was usable. Consider cutting around the chamber bullet indicator on yours - I had to do same - it should be available to feel at anytime in holster to confirm bullet chambered.

    I don't really understand a need for a cut out? As long as the holster was molded to a gun that had a snap cap chambered to raise whatever indicator to accommodate for when your actually carrying

    I was not referring to a fit issue, but rather a function issue. Glocks have indicator to show if a round is or is not chambered. It is easy to check by feel w/o having to look at it. I did not like giving up this feature just because my holster was cut wrong.
