    Nice work Norman. What's the thoughts on a Kydex pancake-style holster for OWB? Say...a G36 or 26? Built to the curve, fairly high ride, open belt slots for maybe a 1.5" belt (like a regular leather pancake rig has) and say a 15 degree forward cant? It would be way thin, and could be well formed; but would it be too brittle for OWB?

    Very nice work. You have much more dedication to kydex then I do. I have quite a few sheets of black and gray left over as well as screws and misc accessories with no motivation to make anything with them. LOL.

    not too brittle at all. Raven and Bravo make 'U' shaped belt loops. I thought about doing the same out of one long piece with two 90ยค bends to make the U.






    thanks brother. It's more like an obsession. When I start something I need to master it. If I don't it drives me crazy haha

    Made this little number for a member here. Low profile mag/cuff paddle rig. It'll take full/compact/subcompact magazines. The paddle was actually a bear to make, it'd be easier after the first time I think.

    Thanks Smokey, I appreciate the kind words.

    Here is a OWB for a Ruger LCR, before I added the belt loops and finishing wipe down.
