As a Range Officer, telling someone that they’re disqualified from a match sucks. It sucks even more if the person hasn’t even fired a shot. I’ve always told people interested in competitive shooting to just bring along whatever gear they’ve got, as long as it’s safe, and worry about buying competition specific stuff later. Unfortunately I’ve noticed a trend over the past couple years of people getting disqualified when they’re using holsters that come with …

After confirming with Robert about what he used, I had to share it here on the blog. He purchased some 4″ PVC drain pipe from the hardware store and heated it up and molded it just like it was …

I shot my Glock 17 at the Shoot2Live IDPA match on Saturday, and the first holster I could scrounge up in the closet that fit it was a kydex pancake holster that I made some time back. You know the type, they look like this …

DIY – The in’s and out’s of working with kydex.

I’ve been working with Kydex for a while now, and from time to time I help out a friend and make a holster, or magazine pouch, or something for them. I don’t do it as a business (filling orders sucks) however, its a lot of fun, and once you have all the tools, you can really save a lot of money on holsters if you buy new guns a lot. Where to get it? I …
