Duct Tape Gun Holster




Introduction: Duct Tape Gun Holster

About: Live life.

This instructable will show you how to make a gun holster. I could have made something else but it didnt work out because it ended up with a fat lip for me.This instructable will show you how to make a gun holster. This is entirely made out of ductape and heavy duty carboard. It is fun doing stuff like this with duct tape because you can customize it how you want. In this case you can make a holster with elaborate designes like a checkered one or like that fancy  ductape. Dont laugh at me for useing hot pink tape because we ran out of orange and red! You can show your pictures bellow in the comments.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: What You Will Need

You will need these easy to get things.

  • Heavy duty carboard (i got mine from the back of a note pad)
  • Duct tape (any color or design)
  • an exacto knife or just a steak knife
  • and also a gun or bb gun (prefferably something small like a pistol)


  • magnets

Step 2: Back Plate

 Make a oultline on the heavy duty cardboard of the gun , and make it so it is a little bit bigger than the gun so it it easier to put in. Dont trace the handle out. After you do this cut it out can see it will work with the cardboard. 

Step 3: Start Wraping the Duct Tape

My pattern for wrapping was you get the duct tape and fold it in half so it dosnt stick. Make sure its long enough to wrap around the gun. Then i would tape around the crack between the two things of duct tape. I know its confuseing but post a comment if you have a question.

Step 4: Belt Clip

Simply fold a piece of tape in half and duct tape both ends to the back of it.


When you are done with those step you can add a latch. Get a piece of tape and fold it in half make it so that reach both sides between the hammer and the handle. Duct tape a magnet on the front side of the holster. Tape another magne to the half strip of tape. Now tape the other end on the back of the holster. Make sure it can reach the magnet on the front. This makes it if you run it wont fall out but it is easy to pull out. Show you pictures of yours customize or just like mine.
