Helped the missus fry some fish for our church’s 60th Anniversay Fellowship. I’m not going to lie, the propane tank scares me. Gas and flame = BOOM in my book! Glad Juan was there to supervise. I am too picky to eat the fish my wife made but she loves me enough to get me some barbacoa, so that’s what I ate. Everyone seemed to enjoy the fish though!
The hardest part for me thus far with Kydex Holster making is getting everything straight! Goes to show that even though you have all the right tools, does not mean you’ll be able to compete with the big boys. Practice makes perfect though, so I whipped up this guy last night. Edges need more work, but I did a slightly better job at getting the fasteners aligned.
Looking at it now as I write this, my OCD is kicking in big time. (I didn’t even know I had OCD) Bottom fasteners should have been properly aligned along with the straighter edges. And after wearing it for a few hours, I probably should have inverted the placement of the Olight and the SOG Powerplay. The Olight is stabbing me a bit. I’ll just have to lose some weight.

After purchasing and loving a Kydex holster for my Glock 43 I thought it would be fun to try and make some on my own. It is very fun, and not as easy as YouTube makes it out to be. Here are some that I have made. Hopefully I continue to get better and better at it.
If you ever watch Top Shot on the HISTORY Channel you’ll see all kinds of weapons. From long rifles to rocks! When they break out the Tomahawks I grin from ear to ear. So since it is Christmas time, I HAD to add some to my Christmas Wishlist and the missus came through!
I’ve been telling friends that it is so satisfying to hear that THUNK when the hawk sticks. I have not been able to hone my technique. Sometimes I can stick all three, like above, and there are times where nothing sticks for several throws. It has been so much fun and I hope the fun never wears out!
