    This is a great video. I've made one holster already, but now I'm inspired to make a concealed carry one like this. I have a couple questions if you don't mind.

    How heavy is too heavy for a single belt loop? The Kel Tec PF9 is 0.75lbs unloaded. Mine is 2.25lbs.

    How is the Kydex against the skin? Have you ever thought of lining the skin side with felt?

    How is the draw if it's in a tucked shirt?

    Your help is appreciated!

    Thanks for doing this, I never would have thought to take on such a project, but you make it seem manageable enough. Although, as you mentioned I would like to see shorter vids, and preferably some more text. A few more specifics like how long you heat the stuff for and at what temp and such. But all in all very helpful and I think I might just give this a try.

    Thanks again!
