    ... 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!

    It's not! I have been wearing it for a few hours now. Only when I sit down is it uncomfortable but thats only because im wearing the gun behind me. I love this thing. Im totally ditching my leather Galco for this thing. Im going to make another for my G21 without the light. Im in the process of making a video for this holster. Showing you guys the holster a bit. Stand by,...

    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.

    Here's the next holster im working on. I have the design already cut out of the kydex. I just have to form it now. It's looks very minimal. I have made some slight changes. This is mockup is only showing the shape.
