Finishing up my DIY ccw holster,...

... for my G21 with a x300. Why? I dont know. I'm just stupid like that. I thought it would be amusing to try and ccw such a big friggin gun. LOL. To ccw a G21,... ok. To ccw and G21 with a light,.... ehhh. I think im pushing it. I basically made this holster just to see if I could really. Im not even allowed to ccw in my state. If I used this holster it would be for a steel match. Anyways,... its 90% done. All the functional stuff is done. Its all cosmetic from here on in. Just sand a ton of sanding and polishing to do. I hope you like it. I do. I use to do alot of stuff like this back in the day with a lot more tools and machines. I miss it so much. I have s@#$ nothing now. Only basic stuff. I made this in my bed room:( Oh well. Im going to make another one for just the G21 after im done with this one. Then im going to make some nice sheaths for my knives. Its made of 100% kydex.

I've never quite seen a setup/design like that. So good job in doing something "original".

Keep us posted

Thank you There's not much more to be done. Just have to sand and polish, maybe do a little bit of shaping. Thats all. It's going to to look nice when its done.

Actually quite surprised by the "bulk" of that holster being concealed under your shirt in the pictures. CONGRATS!

I have to admit this holster looks damn good! Especially when holstering the Glock. I am so happy with it. Time to start making the next one,...

I dig the "kickstand" concept. Props to you man. I wouldn't mind test wearing one of those. The main thing I hate about hip holsters, is the tendency for the weapon to lean out regardless of the holster

Is that why everyone likes IWB holsters? To prevent that from happening? I cant wear my pistol in my pants. The idea just doent to to well with me. That and all my pants are kind of on the tighter side:/

With this holster the gun doesnt really lean outward. it stays dug into my side. The only time it appears to lean outward is if im sitting down and leaning forward. But thats me leaning forward not the gun leaning back. It works well. I might go ahead an remake that 4th piece with the tab. Might try and improve it some, maybe. But first Im working on the second holster. This one will holster the G21 without its light. So far the design is very cool. It looks very minimal. I'll see about getting the mockup pics up on here.

I like it. As for the other post, I am not sure about the IWB carriers, but I think it's because it conceals really well. Like you, however, I can't carry inside the waist band... have tried it and I totally hate it. So far my kydex has turned out to be the best, but I am always looking for better. LOL. Can't wait to see this latest one and how it turns out. Would love to try one of yours out. Are you anywhere near San Antonio?

Ok the shell is pretty much done. I just have to clean out the inside more because it holsters a bit snug. Probably as snug as I would have it if I was carrying. The holster has retention screws so I want it to fit loosely when the retention screws arent being used. I have to sand it down as well. Goign to get some sleep then start making the mounting hardware.

Took me a bit to figure it out, but now I see it. It doesn't shape to your gun like others do because you're using some really thick kydex. Not sure I like this last one at all.

I dont really want the holster to be molded to the gun. I want it to have a universal shape to it. Slide in slide out. No click or snap to it. Dont judge yet. It's not done. I still need to make mounting hardware for it. I just got done grinding this shell.

Also,... thicker kydex is more forgiving. I can grind away imperfections. I can clean up its shape using it's thickness. So far I like it. Its design is tight. kind of like a glove for my gun. It's well thought out. This thing is going to conseal real nicely.
