    I gave a all Kydex holster a try. It is by far the most comfortable holster I have ever strapped on.

    OD Green looks great. I missed some pencil marks on it that the camera picked up on.

    So far I have to say this is the best one yet :D

    Simple, functional and getting better lookin' all the time.

    Keep it up and you'll be challenging Iluvmy40 for his business. Or maybe you should open a satellite office and youse guys can team up together!

    Good to have two custom holster makers here in the club. :mrgreen:

    HMM,

    Way to go!
    Each one looks better than the last! I finally got to see your posts from a PC where I can view the pics.
    I like the OWB, simple and good looking.

    On the IWBs...($0.02) I would keep the Kydex up over the ejection port to minimize any possibility of snagging the front sight on the draw. I know this adds a little drag, but the waist band is going to be worse.

    Keep up the good work. We'll keep Steyr supported single handedly (with both hands?)... Uhh... you know what I mean.

    As always thanks guy's :oops:

    I have made some changes on this one and will post pic's as soon as I can..

    Also Rich your $.02 is very valuable to folks such as me so thanks. I had come to the same conclusion on the IWB.

    I think the biggest mistake I have made was to make all these out of .09 instead of .06. My next order will be .06 and I hope to get that hand boned look (I know there is a joke in there somewhere :wink: )

    Thanks again...

    You sure you made that yourself? Looks like something you picked it up down at the custom shop.

    Practice do indeed make for perfection. By George, I do believe you've got it right this time. :mrgreen:

    Wanta make a lefty for my new Llama? Maybe something like this DeSantis HRT Special for cocked-and-locked carry?

    Or maybe something like this Don Hume Agent 711 with hood?

    Of course, both of those are leather and you're doing kydex. How about a Blackhawk CQC Serpa?

    Just dreaming. :mrgreen:

    :clap: Does your OWB hoster shift on your belt or does it stay firm, in place during walking and/or pulling weapon up and out :?:

    Well these cost about $7 to make...

    If you are asking if I can make one for you I am sorry but I am not set up now to do so....

    I will say they are very easy to do...

    I like the one I made out of the thinner Kydex a lot better..
