Designing new Kydex in my new found spare time take a look.
Horizontal AR15 Mag holder. Not just a turned vertical pouch but this is made to hold a full mag in place while you run.

I have several of Deans ( Kygundoc) holsters and mag pouches. Great stuff, also one of the best gunsmiths I know.

Holsters

Mag pouches for 1911 and Glock, Notice how these can be pulled straight out the front of the mag holder.

I'd like to talk about a holster for my Taurus OSS/DS. Will you be at Bluegrass tomorrow night?

OK, just in case I'm running late today, about what time do you plan on leaving? I'll try to make it before you leave. Will you need to take my gun with you, assuming we can deal?

KYgundoc

I will be there till 7:30 and if I have to make a holster to your gun I will have to have it for a week.

Hey!! If that's my holster - it does indeed look good! I think I'll shoot it in the match tonight - cold turkey! It looks like you got the "stringray" belt pad down just right!

PS - how is the cant, or angle out from the body when on the belt? I like the grip drawn up snug to my ribs - can adjust in case we get too much outward angle? Thanks!

I think you will like the cant of about 5 degrees and the butt is closer than the slide to your body. Yes some ajustments can be made later if you want.

Inside the pants holster that will work with most Glocks. Show with a G19 and is very comfortable. J hook style belt attachment and is made with one piece of Kydex. Inside the pants holsters can be made for any handgun but I will need to use your gun make it.

Hey Dean, want to try to come up with something custom for me? I could use a fast revolver holster and have some ideas of what I need. Trigger guard retention, open top with a bit of barrel retention at the end, and some backwards/right cant for a forward mount. If you're interested, let me know and we can talk it over.

Thanks,

Matt Griffin

Unsolicited testimonial, regarding the Taurus holster pictured above: The holster and weapon are mine. Holster is a great piece of work and I'm a satisfied customer. KYgundoc is the only producer of holsters for this weapon, the Taurus OSS DS, that I could find after a lot of searching. Quality is every bit as good as BladeTech, and in some ways better.

I would like to build a revolver holster for you. Here are some pics of a holster I made for my Mod 28. I was trying for a holster that could be used for USPSA and IDPA. See if it is something we could build on or tell me what you want.

Hmm. That might be a start, but I'm thinking more of something like this:

1. bump that grabs the front of the trigger guard. This would allow the gun to be free once the bump is cleared, for minimum movement before release.

2. Screw to set retention strength on above.

3. Rearward cant, about 15 degrees. Best compromise for waist and surrender starts.

4. No gripping on the cylinder. Once the bump is cleared, I want the thing to jump out of the holster.

5. Very small shelf to prevent the barrel from tipping backwards if I hit the grip too hard. Perfect would be for the barrel to clear at the same distance of draw as the bump.

6. Minimal holster material under and behind trigger guard. I want to get my hand on the grip as fully as possible before starting the draw.

7. Slight outward cant, a la the Bladetech DOH.

Summary would be a clean grip presentation, somewhere about 4cm out from my front pocket, with a slight rear cant, that releases in 3/4" or so. A swinging lock would be nice, something that would swing behind the trigger guard for between stages. And remember, I'm a lefty. And of course we would have to arrive at a price.

I do not think that can be made from Kydex sheet with out some cylinder support kind of like the old rodgers cup challege holster that was open from top to bottom and was held by the cylinder. To be rigid enough to hold a 625 size gun I think a rail mount like a CR speed would be a better platform than Kydex for what you have in mind. Let me think about it I may be able to put a stiffiner rod at the bottom of the holster to add rigidity. I will see what I can come up with and let you know.

Dean, Can you make a holster for a Taurus PT 1911AR (the one with the rail)? I can't find one anywhere.

Gary Not a problem but I will have to have the gun for about a week to form the holster.

Great! I don't know if I can make it to the range this week (meeting in Paducah that day), but if not, I'll bring it the next week. Thanks.

Dean,

If you're feeling frisky, I have a project that has been kicking around in my head for a while. A spring-loaded moonclip magazine that presents a new clip oriented the same way at the same location every time. I don't know if you'd be interested in working on a theory, but if it panned out it could equal some business. Particularly after I beat Jerry at the Nationals this year. ;)

Glad to see so many people supporting Dean's sideline (hope the layoff isn't too long though) Can't wait to get my mag holders, I'm thinking I might talk to you about a holster for my 228 with rail adapter and M3 light.... unless I find a 229R.

I've seen Dean's Kydex work and it is top notch, not suprising since Dean made it he's the kinda guy who takes pride in his work.

That sounds cool yes I would like to give that a try. Let me know what you are thinking about

Dean, Sorry to hear about the layoff! If I ever get a few minutes free, I might sit down and make a wishlist of some gun tweaks and keep you busy a bit if you're game :)

Thanks for the kind words Jack but the layoff was permanent. I need to find a new line of work. I thought being a machinist I could weather bad times like these but that is not the case I guess.

Sean We miss you at the matches and yes I will take all the work I can get. I am going to get a Lathe mill Combo machine in a few days so I can do a little more than Glocks at home.

My Smithy is so old I have to make parts for it.:crying:
And maybe talk about the gun buisness and a job. (At the place I work at)

Boy these rails that are wider than the frame of a 1911 are hard to get a gun to fit in. I have this one ready for a customer with a paddle.

Nice, can't wait to get my hands on it...so that would fit a 2 inch belt right?
