I love Kydex! I started out with ABS plastic but it is so much harder to work with.

Yeah Kydex is nice. The 0.06 give the best definition, while 0.093 and up you really have to watch your temperature to not burn it.
This one was the one I made for my SR40C with .093. I just used lower temp but left it in the oven just a little bit longer. I've got a designn idea I've been kicking around for an all-in-one (IWB/OWB/Belt Loop/Removable Belt Clip) hybrid system. Ill post as soon as I have perfected and built the first prototype. The one in the pic is a modified Old Faithful holster.

yep, that is my video. I tried to make this a video instructable, but after an hour it still didn't work, so I gave up and made a picture one. But a link was in the description. Thanks for watching!
