Not too bad.
I would love to take credit for this idea, but I got it from a fella on another forum. I do not have the means to invest $100+ on a single holster. So after reading his thread on the holster he made, I decided to make my own.
My first attempt was very crude.
I have since upgraded from upholster leather to 6-8 oz veg-tan leather and from plastic at the hobby store to .06 Kydex. I also added 4 holes on each side to adjust the cant.
I have made a few of these and the cost (not including the start up investment in tools, wasted materials from screwing up, etc...) is around $25 each. I did have to buy some leather working tools, parts to make a vacuum box, etc... but all together it was a great idea.
I'm calling them the "Ugly" holsters. What do you think?
Concealed carry is coming to WI, so I figured it's time to come up with a concealed solution. :-)
I think they look pretty good, especially since you just started making them. How do they hold up to daily use?

Be careful using upholstery leather. It is chrome tanned which could possibly have a negative impact on the finish of your gun - pitting, corrosion etc.
