Default Been playing with some kydex

Well I've been playing around with kydex for the past few months... my first holster for my personal Glock came out first try, the design is a bit rough I must say, I played around with some mag pouches and finally made 3 Glock pouches (forgot to include those in the picture...), next was my small little knife, and then I just made the big sheath and XD holster today. The XD is an airsoft gun and belongs to my friend, I was kind of scared pressing it... didn't want to break it.

Nice job Max! Are you going to be making these for sale? I would be interested and have a g17 w/tlr1 if you would like to practice on mine.

Very nice. Is it fairly to mold Kydex? Are you just using a heat gun?

Thanks guys. No I actually bake it in the oven. Bending it and getting the retention set right is all done on low heat with a heat gun. Can't really tell in the picture but my Glock holster is all shiny because I used high heat lol.
