Who are you?
I am a Christian, husband, and father. I’m not ex-military, nor was I ever in law enforcement. I have trained in martial arts and with guns for over 25 years, and I’m a Suarez International certified rifle trainer.
What do you do?
I enjoy creating custom kydex holsters, specializing in concealed carry.
What is kydex and why should I use it for my next holster?
Kydex is basically a very durable plastic. Molded to the shape of the pistol, it has a positive “click” into position. Contrary to popular opinion, it doesn’t wear the finish of the gun quicker than leather. If it is improperly made it can, but because it is slick on the inside of the holster it is easier to keep clean than leather, and it is grit in a holster that is the real offender. Because it is harder than leather it retains it’s shape even when the gun is out, making it easy to re-holster safely.
How should I clean my holster?
Water works well, if it’s stained you can add soap. Do NOT put it in the dishwasher! The heat may warp it.
