Couldn't find holster, so I made one.




Hello guys.

After scouring the internet for a holster I liked, I decided it would be better if to try to make something that suited my needs. The last gun I carried daily before the 1911 was a M&P 40 Compact. On that firearm a local holster manufacturer maked me a kydex setup and it was the best holster I have used out of the 5 or so I bought for that particular gun. This holster took me 4 months to get made by this company.

After some thought and practice I figured I could make one just as good as they did and make it exactly the way I wanted (Serious cant angle to hide this thing). Still need to add belt loops but you get the idea. Enjoy.

Hides pretty well on my 5' 11" 200 lbs frame. I usually have a little bigger tee shirt on as well.

I guess the business found me. Within a day of posting the pics on 3 sites I frequent three holsters are on order and a mag pouch. Also talking with 3 or 4 others about projects.

I would be willing to make a holster for anyone that wanted one. These keep my busy and I do like the creativity aspect.

Figured I would add this one. First customer wanted an exact replica of my 1911 holster. Pulled better definition from the press this time and looking good IMO. Just need to bend and add belt loops.
