Custom Kydex?

Any other CCW fans? I am in search of a good custom Kydex holster...a drop holster. I am seeing a few Google hits, but wanted to ask if any one here has a company they can vouch for. I placed an order for a Battle Rattle Belt today. They are a small biz on FB.

Thanks in advance.

I am not sure what a drop holster is, but this guy's holsters are top notch. You can contact him and see what he may be able to do.

I will apologize now for my long reply, but when a company touches your life like CrossBreed did mine... Well, I at least spread the word. The short answer is go with a CrossBreed Super Tuck in horsehide.

https://www.crossbreedholsters.com/P...perTuck-Deluxe

So here is why I will always recommend CrossBreed. In October of 2010 I got a text from my now ex at work asking if we had just had another earthquake. We were living in Oklahoma and they are still getting a lot of earthquakes. I told here I didn't feel anything. About 3 minutes latter she called and said "I need you home now, I just shot two intruders!" All I said was "I'm on my way" and that was the longest 5 mile drive of my life. Since this is not a gun forum I will end this part of the story, you can continue to read about it here:

http://www.xdtalk.com/threads/ibwald...-guide.186358/

I shared my story in hopes that someone could be better prepared then I was. There was a tremendous outpouring of support for my family that was completely unexpected! That's when Mark Craighead (the founder and owner of CrossBreed) reached out to us and financially supported my family for the next 14 months... There are no words that I can type to reflect the amount of gratitude I have for that man. He restored my faith in mankind, he humbled my very sole, and I still get a bit emotional when I think about how he affected my life! A few months latter I ordered a pair of holsters (the one I suggested) and he refused to charge me. Shorty after that Mark passed away before I ever had the chance to thank him... So now I simply recommend his products to anyone that asks. There are a lot of choices out there, but this company cares about the people that support them and they change people's lives!

I actually own that leather holster! And the 2 mag one for the other side. It is too bulky for most of the pants I wear, so it sits in my collection of holsters I don't regularly. I need one for OWB to go on a custom belt I just ordered. My security posture is ever evolving. I used to live in a higher risk area, now a lower one. And the distance / direction and routes of travel to get to my safe place fall back position is a great deal further away. I had to transition from a few Pelican cases to a vest, belt and small bag.

The other holster I use in a Blackhawk SERPA Level 2. It has a positive retention that is almost instinctive to use. My only advice is to choose a holster that provides complete coverage of the trigger guard (a must for proper safety). I use my Blackhawk when I hike as the waist belt will fit through the holster perfectly. In this configuration it sits right up front for a smooth, quick draw. Here in Utah (and most Rockymountain states) open carry is legal. I always carry concealed in town as I don't want to give away my little secret, but in the backcountry I could care less. The Blackhawk line allows you place the holster just about anywhere you see fit with different mounting options.

I too carry a CrossBreed Super Tuck, although I don't have an amazing story to share like ibwaldo does. My only complaint is that it's noisy - it creaks a lot between the belt hooks and horse hide. Seems to be a common problem, but I haven't been able to solve it yet with oils or the like. My next attempt will be to sprinkle some baby powder between the hooks and leather, though I'm worried I'll smell too pretty.

I agree, although I have had two other similar type holsters that also creaked after about 6 months (and when they start to get comfortable).

Since I'm already off track, Those that carry and don't have some sort of insurance should look into it. My wife and I personally have USCCA.

I've been a big fan of Blade-Tech Kydex IWB holsters for many years. They also have a drop holster called the DOH you may want to check out.

I switched to Frog Lube from conventional petroleum cleaning/lubing products. The first day or two after cleaning with FL, I have a minty fresh breeze following me everywhere.
